Looking for THAT read that will move your emotions, test your grit and open your eyes to a struggle that millions face on a daily basis? Lisa Acerbo’s TWELVE MONTHS OF AWKWARD MOMENTS is that book. This is NOT a gentle walk in the park, it is the story of one woman’s struggle to re-enter the human race, to function and find a sense of inner peace that will allow her to know more than awkward moments in life.

Dani was the “Good Girl.” She was the studious one, an introvert, the last person who sho

Twelve Months of Awkward Moments is a new adult romantic suspense by Lisa Acerbo. This book sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride. First, it wasn't at all what I expected it to be. I knew there was a stalker involved, but I didn't know too much more than that other than it was set at a college. I was expecting this to be a light romantic suspense story, heavy on the romance. And I have to tell you, this is a no

This was one of those books which you’re planning to read just a few pages of, just to see if you like it, and then two hours later you’re still reading even though you have a bunch of other things you were supposed to do. This is also one of those books that you think about even when you’re not reading it, and you keep trying to figure out ways to cancel other activities just so you can get back to it.

In a word: Addictive.

I absolutely LOVE when a book catches me by surprise like this and I’m s

I found this book to be super entertaining and it kept my interest from start to finish. It was not your typical college romance story and had many elements that made it dynamic. I really resonated with the main character and found her experiences both humorous and relatable as a recent college graduate myself. Despite that, I think this book is great for readers of many ages and would definitely recommend it.

Twelve Months of Awkward Moments follows college student, Dani, through a difficult senior year. This NA novella is more of a coming-of-age story than any other genre.

Dani comes from a troubled family. Her parents are divorced. Her father suffers from excessive paranoia. Her uncle suffers from an unnamed mental illness. Dani herself is battling with anxiety. At the start of the story, it is hard not to feel Dani’s pain and loneliness mixed in with her fear, negativity and worry about her future.

*I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
Dani is a college student who struggles through daily anxiety. In fact, mental illness might just be hereditary for her, since her family is not exactly normal. To make matters worse, she now has a stalker. In this story, we see Dani navigate her awkward life with the help of her more outgoing friends.
I was very interested in reading this book, and although it wasn’t quite what I expected, it still kept me turning the pages. Based o

Twelve Months of Awkward Moments by Lisa Acerbo was a bit of a surprise of a book. This book reads like a journal, but hides a much deeper core. Dani is a great girl, just wants to do the right thing, finish college, and get on with her life. But as always, life intervenes, and Dani faces new challenges as a stalker threatens to disrupt everything. What might appear to be a light story on the surface, and certainly the title makes it appear so, this book is much more, truly highlighting the inte ...more

This is most definitely not your run of the mill romantic suspense novel.  The narrative method of story telling makes this feel more personal, and provides the reader with the opportunity to really forge a connection with Dani.  As a result, this is elevated from a diary-like tale, to something deeper and more complex.

At times more difficult to read, due to the issues Dani deals with, that only strengthens the overall satisfaction gained from the conclusion of the tale.

“Twelve Months of Awkward Moments” is a journal, of sorts, of the inner workings of Dani’s mind and heart as she accepts the challenge issued by her therapist.

Read full review in the 2018 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

This story and the emotions of the main character seem close to many people. The main character is an introvert girl with a difficult life situation. The story begins that a young girl who has to return to college after the summer holidays, but she is nervous and her doctor Sandra helps her in this - listens attentively. She as a real friend tries to support Dani, finds different ways to solve the problem.

I have noted how the author accurately conveys the feelings of each child before the beginn
