The Lovereading4Kids comment
A riveting, emotional drama about what it means to be friends and what it means to be enemies, blending literary and fast-paced writing to create a pitch-perfect teen read.
A Piece of Passion from Brenda Gardner, Publisher I started my career with the legendary Kaye Webb, and she always used to say that she read the books submitted in bed, and then the ones she remembered three days later were the ones she bought. That is a good criteria to follow, and if memory is anything to go by this book stands head and shoulders above some great books. I started to read the manuscript a year ago thinking I would take a break in an hour or two and of course I couldn't put it down. The book has the most exciting climax ever – a sheer roller-coaster of a ride – and not only was I muttering under my breath against one of the characters, I was holding my breath. My memory of the story is as crystal clear! Anyone who has read any of Holly's other books know the skill, compassion and beauty of her writing, and this book will give her even more laurels. I guarantee you will love and remember it.
Just Call My Name by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Emily Bell finally has everything she wants. The boy she loves, Sam Border, lives just
down the road, and they’re now in a healthy, committed relationship. Her family is
adopting his younger brother, and now she and Sam have a whole summer to enjoy
together without the stresses of his traumatic past with a criminally insane father. But
little do they know that Clarence Border is planning a jailbreak...and then he’s coming after Emily and his sons to get revenge.
When Emily is taken at gunpoint, there’s only one person who secretly witnesses the
crime: the charismatic new girl in town, Destiny, who has been flirting with Sam since
she arrived and making Emily question the loyalty of the person she thought she could trust most. Now the two girls will have to band together and find a way to outwit Sam’s vengeful father before it’s too late in an edge-of-your-seat race to the finish.
