The Unbroken Hearts Club is a book about how to deal with losing someone in your family. Logan lost her mother from Huntington's Disease and ever since has been not her self. This includes staying away from others and not going to school. This book had a great message and that is what drew me to this book. However, I feel like this book could have been developed in many ways. Just as I started to get invested into the story and the characters, the book was over. I also feel like there could have ...more

This book is what I'd consider short right, it is so short and is an easy read, but I cannot. I just cannot do it. I've been trying to read this book since last year and I still cannot get through it and just— its time. I've tried and it's not happening so it's time.

The Unbroken Hearts Club by Brooke Carter was enjoyable overall, but it seemed like it could use some editing to make the prose a little tighter.

I really like the premise of the story. Lo is a high school senior whose mom died of Huntington's disease about a year ago. Her best friend, Cole, has been supportive and is helping her through this rough time. As her final days of high school draw to a close, she's in danger of failing her Media class. At the same time, her dad is drawing closer to a l
Logan's mom died of Huntington's disease and it has left her in a state of depression. It's so bad that she doesn't realize that her best friend Cole is in love with her. Now her dad is starting to move on and is going to hold a bereavement group in their basement!
A solid hi-lo book with a bit of romance in this realistic look at dealing with grief and depression in the loss of a loved one.

This is a really sweet story with great characters, good plot and easy to read writing that flows. I loved the characters, became quickly invested in them and felt their ups and downs. It’s got a different enough premise to make it interesting to the reader. I laughed, I cried, I cheered. YA fans won’t regret taking a chance on this book!

Predictable, but charming. Also, there are some real good blurbs in there of quotes to reflect on.
