Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker
Amazon / Goodreads
Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker is about Clementine Williams a.k.a. Clem. During her sophomore year she falls for her best friend's boyfriend. Her best friend decides to take her boyfriends' side leaving Clem friendless and alone. Summer vacation starts and Clem's family spends their summer on their sailboat, which gives Clem time to think and meet a cute boy a long the way.
I absolutely loved Unbreak My Heart!!! The novel held my interest from the first page to the last. Fantastic writing and great characters. Normally when books go back and forth from the current time to "memories" or the past, It can get confusing or just not written well. This book was written perfectly! I have to gush about how much I love the name Clementine, in fact while reading Unbreak My Heart I told my husband that if we ever have a girl, we are naming her Clementine. He quickly said "No!" :-( Clem's character was a little selfish and melodramatic however realistic. This was a fun read that went straight to my favorites, and also teaches a great message about friendship and learning to love yourself. Unbreak My Heart is a perfect read for teens, adults will enjoy it too!
5 out of 5 stars
Special Thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury Children's Books for providing an e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
I just have to add that every time I read the title, I sing Toni Braxton's Unbreak My Heart in my head LOL!
