    I enjoyed this book, it explores the difficulties a teenager has with the loss of her best friends mother in 9/11 & her brother & his best friend enlistening in the army. She meets a muslim girl at university and the difficulties of acceptance that she experiences. A quick read on a sunny afternoon. I had not realised before downloading that it was written by a teenager, but I enjoyed it anyway, its certainly not childish.
  • Bicycle Shop Murder on May 12, 2010

    Really enjoyed this book, as someone else has said, you know who the murderer is, but it keeps you interested all through the book. Will look for more of this authors books.

    I enjoyed the book, but I certainly didnt shed a tear, its just a very predictable love story. But thats not to say I didnt like it, but not a great depth to the story at all.
  • Three Year Old Slave Girl on June 05, 2010

    I think I am missing something here, theres no meat on the bones at all, its a very short story & I thought it was awful. She walks out of several homes, is treated like a home help each time with no real details. Meets a guy & lives happily ever after, all in about 6 pages. Sorry, I just cannot recommend this one.
  • Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1) on June 30, 2010

    What can I say that has not already been said. I loved this book, I feel like Amy is a friend & the author writes so well, I can visualise the scenes. I too have bought all the other books & am 2/3 of my way through the next book in the series
  • Mud and Gold (Promises to Keep: Book 2) on July 01, 2010

    I have just finished the second book & I just love this series. The relationship between Lizzie & Frank is so close & at last Amy has found some strength. Onto the next book now, can't wait.
