This is such an emotional story, somehow perfectly blended with that summer/beach read, and it was just what I needed. Clem went through something that affected her so much, and it speaks volume towards friendship, and what happens when trust is broken. But I am sympathetic to her, and I toally wanted to root for her and Ethan in that point of view, except for I knew what she knew, and that made it so much harder. Ethan is her best friend's boyfriend. But they go so well together, and I just wish that she would've spoken up before Amanda went after him, but I guess if that happened, then we wouldn't really have a story.
And let me just say that Melissa Walker has a gift of writing chemistry and longing if she can make me understand and want it to work out when it involves cheating. It's such a hard issue, but she tackled it well, and I am glad that there's the back and forth where we see she learned from it and the ramifications. It's more than just about the boy too, its about a lost friendship.
This is also a new way where I've fallen for both boys, but its unique because its in the past and present, because James aka Red is totally awesome too. I love his humor and his understanding.
I also appreciate the ties of family, between Clem and her sister, between her and their parents. I love how her parents push but not too much, how they care without managing to suffocate. It is special to me when parents play a huge role in a book, and Melissa pulls it off well.

Unbreak My Heart is another perfect summer read to add to my list, and not just because it's set in the same season. I fell in love with the characters, their stories and the setting of this book - and when I say in love, I mean head over heels. Though it was by no means an easy book for me to read (more on that later), Melissa C. Walker did an incredible job writing a story that would reel me in, churn me up and set me back down whole, unbroken and thoroughly changed.

I love Clementine. She's so easy for me to relate to! Because the book is told from her perspective, we get a good long look at her thoughts, her feelings and the things she loves. It was remarkable writing, to me, because I was completely drawn into her character's emotions and experiences. I felt for her when she was going through that crazy difficult experience, when her sadness threatened to overwhelm her, when the promise of happiness suddenly made itself obvious.

I love that there's a fun cast of characters that were alongside Clementine for her summer adventure - and that each character has their unique identifier. Melissa manages to create awesome personalities in Clem's mom and dad, her sister Olive, mysterious boy James and his father and even the old couple Ruth and George.

Clem's parents, by the way, are YA stars, as far as I'm concerned. They care about their family, they care for Clem and they're just plain cool. I mean, hello, the fact that they'd take their kids out for a whole summer sailing - that's awesome! And I love how they were always there for Clem, whether she wanted them to be or not, and how they didn't push her until she was ready to talk to them.

Olive is a scene-stealer, and I loved her bits in the book!

Since I finished Small Town Sinners, I have been waiting for another Melissa Walker book. And with Unbreak My Heart, Melissa Walker delivers the perfect summer story that was just way too cute.

Clem was such an easy main character to connect with, as a lot of things about her just reminded me of things in my life. James is pretty much the most adorable guy ever - seriously, where can I find one like that? I loved how spunky and fun Olive was - she was so funny!

The plot was so heartbreaking and touching at the same time. I loved the alternating chapters - they both had so much story to tell and I couldn't wait to read more to find out exact what had happened to Clem. Clem and Jame's story was so easy to fall in love with, and it was so lighthearted and nice, despite the happenings that are kind of haunting both of them this summer.

I was so sad to see this one end - I wish it had went on a little longer. This was just the perfect book to read on a nice summer day, and definitely made me want to go boating again!

Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker was an awesome read. I love her writing, her characters, and the stories she shares with readers. Unbreak My Heart is a book you will be sad to miss! Melissa Walker is just a master of contemporary, and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.

This book had a lot of buzz around it, and the night that I picked it up to read, it seemed like it would be the right mix of poignant and sweet. Unbreak My Heart explores different sides of heartbreak and the pain that any loss can cause, but as the title suggests, it also shows healing.

Clementine Williams' sophomore year was fine...until people found out that she had fallen for her best friend Amanda's boyfriend. Because of that, Clem was shunned by her friends and looking forward to a summer with no plans, until her parents tell her that they will be sailing along the river. Clem is looking forward to escaping into her room with her music, but her family's first stop on the journey changes that. She meets a boy her age, James, in a store, and soon they are running into each other quite frequently. But Clem knows she isn't a good person - after all, her lifelong friends still won't talk to her. Neither her parents nor her little sister Olive can cheer her up. But could James be just the medicine that her heart needs?

Unbreak My Heart is told with a dual narrative, alternating pieces of Clem's sophomore year with the events of the summer on the river. I loved that the story unfolded gradually and that we still learned more about Clem as the book went on. I also enjoyed getting to know her family. Her parents were involved and caring, and her little sister Olive was adorable - just like what I always imagined a little sister would be like. Then there was James. I have to admit that I am a sucker for tortured artists - and with James being an incredible artist who was hiding secrets, I found him incredibly swoon-worthy. Their relationship felt real and was developed over time, and it was by no means issue-free.
