Editorial Reviews

Review

"Another thing Bellon did that I particularly enjoyed was take an unabashed look at class structures in America. Roshell, a girl from a trailer park who is forced to look after her cousins and has no male role models in her life makes for a perfect glimpse into America's other half, especially as that other half continues to grow in size." - Robert Devenuti, HaveUHeard.net (Celebrity News) "Well this book definitely embraced me and I certainly embraced it back! A rollercoaster of emotions takes you through the ins and outs of this novel as you unravel the world alongside Roshell as maturation takes place. A beautiful novel from a talented author." - Epona Reviews Reader reviews on GoodReads: "WOW. A profoundly emotional book." "This was such an amazing book! It has twist and turns that you won't see coming. A truly emotional yet comical journey. Once you pick it up, you won't want to set it down." "The book is so well written that I was feeling all emotions." "It tackles some difficult subject matter and manages to still be funny and hopeful. I was hooked from the start."

Format: Paperback
Masterfully written, this book blew me away. I was not expecting the twists and turns which the book made. They did not seem to have much of a connection, though, and didn't always seem to move the plot forward. And a lot of the time neither did the characters. Things just seemed to happen in this book, things that surprised and stunned me. I liked the characters, though. They seemed to walk off of the page for me, and I could almost hear them speaking inside my head. The multiple POV narrative got me inside the characters' heads, which is something I really look for in a book, because it strengthens my connection to the people and their story.

This book is a coming of age story. It's Rochell's coming of age story. As we travel through life with her, we feel what she feels. We feel her fear, a fear that locks her inside herself, a fear that prevents her from taking a chance and allowing herself the vulnerability of loving. And we grieve with her, when the unthinkable happens. A grief which hurts all the more for chances not taken. A grief which leads her toward a new beginning. I found this book incredibly evocative. It's message is powerful. A must read. I highly recommend it.

The book is so well written that I was feeling all emotions. I loved remembering things from the 90s!

I really enjoyed the multiple point of views. It's nice being able to see what the other characters are thinking. The turn of events throughout the book left me laughing and crying at various points, feeling what Roshell was feeling. The love, fear, grief, and friendship found in Embracing You, Embracing Me led me on a rollercoaster of emotions. It was like I was right there in the middle of all that was happening.

I found this book to be nothing short of a fantastic story! Michelle Bellon has a way with writing great characters that you genuinely care about, which compels you to keep going until the end. This one is particular had me feeling the whole gamut of emotions and wishing there was more to Roshell's story... Perhaps it's time for another book???

This book was quite a surprise. I never imagined that I would read something that could be so loving and assist in healing on so many levels. It can assist different type of personal relationships. You could really fall in love with the characters: Roshell, Sabrina, Amber, and Gabriel. I know I sure did. They are so funny, delightful, and so different. Even the other characters made you wish you could meet them in person. Well... most of them.

The roles they play were so real, so utterly amazing, because these people were able to touch you. It wasn't about the glitz of a rich person's life. It was showing the lives that are filled with insecurities that we all have while facing teenage years. However, there were many travesties that occurred that assist in a wonderful plot. This book makes you feel these people are real, and that if they can overcome different major trials of life, so can we.

The book is inspiring by showing such raw emotions from the main characters. You will laugh, possibly cry, and definitely get angry. You can see a lot of innocence and wisdom when reading through the pages. You get lost in time as you can embrace the advantages of being in each environment that Michelle Bellon has created.

Want a romance and suspense novel? Want a good "read" that both young and mature adults can enjoy? Look no further. This is it. If a man would like to understand women better, he could learn a lot from this book. It depicted the male and female population to the "T," perfectly!

Sometimes we have pain and suffering from the past as Roshell did. Will we run or will we face it? Roshell is like a breath of fresh air in a claustrophobic world. This book is like a gold mine. It isn't like any other romance novel you have read.

Format: Paperback
A well written book that, I feel, is more for young people in their teens through their 30's. It was somewhat interesting to me but my interest in this age group and their experiences does not make me a very good reviewer for the subject. Believe me when I say that if you are a young person in this age group you will be riveted to the story. The author writes this story as though she lived through a lot of the subject matter. The descriptions of the various characters in the story are fantastic. Michelle has molded and told the stories from the heart. Falling in and out of love and many of the reasons that could cause this to occur can be a complex subject, one that can haunt a person all their life if they let a chance for true love leave their life only to wonder if that was a mistake. Then should some kind of disaster enter into a young life, they must learn how to tame the beast that caused that problem. Death, accident, pregnancy, drugs, physical or verbal fighting, hormones, or misunderstandings can change a life forever.

Roshell was raised in a very poor setting, if one can call it actually being "raised". The story starts when she was gradually finding a good friend or two but afraid to take any of them to her trailer home. At her young age, Roshell was not savvy about boys and sex as well as how to act as she tried to mix in with others at parties. She was very vulnerable and did all she could to mix in with other known girls, most of whom came to these parties with their boyfriend. Some of the boyfriends tried to get interested in Roshell but she wanted no parts of them. Any she did get a slight interest in she would break it off before anything serious could come about. She did accept a prom date with Tim, a senior, even though she was a junior.
