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.

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.

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!

Clementine didn't finish off Sophomore year on a good note. Now she's caught in this awkward situation of almost cheating with her best friend's boyfriend. The story is told in alternating chapters that tell the story of how she broke her heart and how she healed it. Clementine started off with a moody attitude, but slowly grew on me with her personality. She was definitely someone I could see myself becoming friends with.

The whole family aspect of the book was one of my favorites. They were this fun, close family that was easy to relate to. Olive, Clementine's sister, was such a fun person to read about. She's always honest, sometimes even brutally honest, that only result in interesting conversations.

What is another one of my favorite things? Nice guys. Yupp. NICE GUYS. And there just happens to be one named James. I liked him from the moment he showed up. He's just this all around great, funny, and artistic guy. Clementine literally bumped into James during one of her stops and ever since then the two slowly got to know each other.

This book was just full of awesome. I absolutely adored every moment of Unbreak My Heart. Not only did I love the characters and the beautiful setting, but I also loved Melissa's writing style. It was easy to get lost in the pages and fall in love right along with Clementine.
