"I lived for Wednesdays. Every other day of the week was something that stood between the two of us. I lay awake at night thinking up ways to change that. I went over and over how to approach her in my head, and nothing seemed to work. I knew that it needed to be fate again. If it were fate, then I wouldn't feel like I manipulated the situation. Then I wouldn't be to blame ...more

Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

By the end of chapter four, I already knew what the secret was and I was all in for finding out how the story played out. Sue me, I love the drama. After reading the prologue, I was hooked on this read and was surprised that I finished this in one sitting. 3-4 hours? Almost hitting that 1AM mark, oh dear! Nevertheless I was on the fence with this one. "Nineteen" covers the awkward gap between adolescence and adulthood, and Cameron being the lost and troubled soul stuck in between. I was

I read "Nineteen" in one sitting and wouldn't have it any other way. I just couldn't put it down because I was in love with the protagonist, Cameron, and everything he wanted to share with me. This book being told in a reflective style really impacts the perspective of the narrator. Hindsight is such a unique perspective when reflecting on love lost.

This was a good read!

I love the style of how this book opened capturing readers and engaging from the first page. This is a new style of storytelling that I've experienced giving a softer side of the teenage years with true and relatable emotions.

This book was raw, emotional and engrossing. It was raw almost to the point of being uncomfortable, in the way life sometimes is. This isn't my usual genre and I'm so glad I branched out. I'm looking forward to next book!

“To really be in love, you have to let it hurt sometimes.”

Nineteen truly covers that strange gap in life between adolescence and adulthood and Carmack nails it on the head. She writes of a boy who feels out of place in his own life; misunderstood, often directionless, carried about by loveless “love” until something good comes along, an unconventional love with a woman who is older than him, one that his parents disapprove of. Nineteen pretty adequately describes the emotional turmoil of

Carmack has written a very raw and realistic novel about that awkward time between adolescence and adulthood and has done a wonderful job of immersing the reader in the awkward and often painful life of post-teen Cameron. This novel is not afraid to confront controversial subjects and the reader gets a very intimate look inside the character's head.

You need to pick this debut to embark the journey that lies ahead. Kudos to Carmack for writing this
An emotional read that will stay with you long after you have finished it, and I mean it, it will affect you.
If i simply has to use a word to describe this utterly strong book I would choose the word "beautiful" because it simply is.
Emotional and gritty along with sober writing style, the themes and the book itself is realistic and embodies realism and life.
First person narration puts you in deep
