Just Breeze is Just Wonderful!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Just Breeze (Paperback)
This easy-to-read novel starts out light and fun, but as the plot travels from cheerleading tryouts to fender benders to first kisses to class essays, Just Breeze is clearly a wonderfully written coming-of-age novel.
Beverly Stowe McClure accomplishes something that very few young adult authors can do: She creates a protagonist who appeals to both boys and girls. Breeze Brannigan is tall, awkward, sarcastic--and oddly enough, she can fix anything. With the help of Breeze's guy friends and brother, the storyline broaches gender-crossing topics like cars and football. But girls won't be disappointed; there are plenty of chick lit moments: best friend chats, makeovers, and most importantly, first kisses and first love.
I recommend this novel for young teens, or anyone who wants to relive the middle years through the eyes of Breeze Brannigan. It's a fun, fast read, and my only complaint is there is not a sequel...yet!
