Unbreak My Heart
by Melissa C. Walker (Goodreads Author)
Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but floating away sounds pretty good right now.
Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?
Told in alternating chapters that chronicle the year that broke Clem’s heart and the summer that healed it, Unbreak My Heart is a wonderful dual love story that fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti will flock to.
Ah a book on falling in love in all the wrong places. It is so sad when you fall in love when you can't help it but the pressures of being a teen weigh you down. I thought this book was beautifully told and Clem's story is a good one.
So often we fall in love with the contentment or the idea of being in love but until you REALLY find love and are truly happy is when you see the difference. Thank goodness for James for helping her see the difference.
It is hard when you hurt your friends especially when you can't control on who you fall for but is heartbreaking when your TRUE friends can't even ask for you side of the story and cast you out. There is always two sides to every story it is just too bad that a lot of people only take the time to listen to one.
On the boat the love of Clem's family and James family brings joy to my heart. I really liked this story and I also hope there is a sequel because I would love to find out what happens with James and Clem as well as what happens in Clem's senior year.
4 thumbs up!
