Also, the interaction between Carter and Penny was so sporadic that I kept wishing for more. I feel that we didn't really get to know Carter very well. The happiness to drama ratio was not balanced for my liking.
Do I regret reading this book? No. It is still a good read, just not epic.
Penny is a dedicated honor student, a skater on the competition track, and works part time. As if that isn't enough, she's the main caretaker for her mother who has cancer. Her father has emotionally checked out because of the pain of seeing his wife dying. Reeling against the emotional weight of all she's dealing with, Penny finds comfort in the arms of Carter, a college student she meets at the rink.
Life is complicated, and Penny has other major obstacles to overcome on her path to happiness. PJ Sharon deals with issues of eating disorders, teen pregnancy, and family dynamics in a sensitive and talented manner reminiscent of Judy Blume. Through it all, she infuses the story with hope, faith, and love. This book is a must read for teens and parents of teens. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Buy it. Read it. Love it.
There are YA books that hit on edgy issues such as, sex, bulimia, teen pregnancy, death of parents, finding out you are not who you thought you were, rape and parental stress to succeed....This book had ALL of these things, it was A LOT to take for just one young girl. Some of the issues could have been drawn out more, and some could have been taken out all together. NOT to say that PJ Sharon didn't do an AMAZING job at making all these issues not just believable, but they WORKED!
For me, as a reader, it was a bit much. As a fellow writer, it was a bit much. There were some unnecessary secondary characters that could have been taken out, and I would have suggested taking out one or two of the conflict issues, maybe drawing out some of the main issues a bit longer. I felt as if the conflict was piled on and forced on the reader.
But as I said, PJ Sharon did an amazing job at making ALL THE CHAOS work. There was some "God" talk, which doesn't bother me in the least, but this is coming from a 13-yr Catholic School Veteran. In my opinion, if I was dealing with all of the things Penny was dealing with, I'd be praying too!!
As for the main characters, Penny was your average girl, I didn't really get too much more out of her, but I liked her. But I think because there was so many issues going on at the same time, we couldn't really get a good read on her feelings about just one thing, or how she would react in just one situation.
As for our Hero, Carter McCray....well....Read more ›
I will be recommending this to many, many others.
