Thank you, Odyssey Books, for providing me with a free copy in exchange for my honest review. Opinions are my own.

An excellent story about self-awareness and trauma, this story about domestic violence is written in an easy way for teenagers to understand. TRIGGER WARNING: abuse (verbal and physical). My full review is here: https://wp.me/pb7hvA-7c

I found this book utterly engrossing and completely unexpected!

I had to read this in one sitting because there was no way I wanted to put this book down. A teen breakup, with Connie pining after the "perfect" Viggo sounds like a fairly typical YA relationship story, but it really is anything but.

Connie is left heartbroken after a year-long relationship with Viggo MacDuff ends. To deal with her heartbreak and move on, Connie allows herself 25 memories (one for every long-gone advent calendar

This book took me by surprise. When I was given a chance to review a copy, I looked at the synopsis and page count and thought it would simply be a silly romcom, but in the end, I was pleasantly surprised! There is a lot of depth in these pages, including examinations of resiliency in the face of a potentially toxic relationship. Connie Chase is both typical and atypical as a heroine, falling for "the perfect guy" almost immediately, but also recognizing (eventually) the signs of a negative ...more

A book for my daughter

Okay, my daughter's only five now so it'll be a while, but when she's older - somewhere between 10 and 15 - this is one of the books she needs to read.

A bit triggering and close to home for me in various parts. Such a strong and geeky book by a fabulous author. Think I need to go have a cry now though.
