Review by: Charity Rowell on Dec. 5, 2016 :
I normally read new adult fiction with a supernatural/paranormal twist, so I was not too sure what to expect from Is This Me?. I expected it to be a fairly light read but found myself blown away by Copeland's writing style and became thoroughly absorbed by the plot.

I liked Amanda; she's a level-headed young woman who occasionally deviated from the straight and narrow path that she was following when living with her parents. Copeland did a great job of demonstrating the struggle of maintaining a balance between study and life, and she made Amanda engaging and approachable to readers.

I despised Amanda's crush, Doug. Don't get me wrong, Copeland did a great job of developing his character. He comes across as an unempathetic d**k who has nothing better to do with his time than to string Amanda along. He reminds me of some of the men I've known, and nothing would have made me happier than to read about him taking a long walk off of a very tall building. I'm not too sure if Copeland wants her readers to think of Doug in this light, but I did.

I only mention my thoughts about Doug to demonstrate what a great job Copeland did with the plot and the characters. I was emotionally invested in the story and empathized with Amanda's situation.

I half-expected Is This Me? to be a fluffy read; however, it is pretty substantial and touches on several issues that young adults face when out on their own for the first time. It is also clean and brings up the issue of sex before marriage without coming across as preachy or goody-goody.

The book is marketed as "new adult;" however, I think a girl as young as 16 could read this pretty easily while avoiding bringing up issues that parents haven't already discussed with her. I have a sister-in-law who is still in high school and a Catholic; I could easily gift her this book for Christmas, in front of the entire family, without worrying about the content.
