Top Customer Reviews
There is a good reason this book has a 4.5 star rating on Goodreads and has over 1,200 5 star reviews on Amazon. It is beautifully done. The writing is fabulous, the characters are well developed and likable, the story line is engaging, believable and ultimately unforgettable.
It's rare that I stay up all night reading. Twice in the past few weeks I have sacrificed sleep to finish a book. Both times were when I was reading an Amy Harmon book. I could not put this book down. When I did I couldn't quit thinking about it and had to pick it back up. There was no way I was going to be able to sleep until I had heard the end of Ambrose and Fern's story.
I can't say enough good about Making Faces. Go get a copy and see for yourself why I love this book. Just be sure you too can stay up all night reading because once you get started you won't want to put this story down.
Rating: 5 Stars - I loved it.

Ambrose hated the way the world looked at him. They put him on a pedestal. He knew they didn't see the real him. But someone did, and that someone was little Fern. She looked deep enough to see the real Ambrose, and she loved him because of what she saw. When Ambrose returned from Afghanistan, injured and broken, he thought no one would ever learn to love him. Scarred and disfigured, he was no longer beautiful, he was something to fear. But then Fern's love wasn't about his looks, it was about who he was inside.
As a reader, I love romance.I love a handsome, strong character as much as anyone else. Ambrose was as handsome as any other character I've ever read about. His appeal was compelling, powerful, and knocked my socks off. With all the things he'd sacrificed in his life, protecting the innocent, he deserved a woman who could love him, who could see him the way Fern did.
Making Faces is truly a wonderful, well written new adult book. We have a beautiful hero in Ambrose, he is book boyfriend material without a doubt. He is strong, vulnerable, lost and confused at points but he remains true to himself and his loved ones and I fell head over heels for him. Fern is a fantastic heroine, so real and true that I couldn't help but relate to her. Fern is one of us, she is the ordinary girl who loves romance novels, she thinks she is nothing remarkable but she doesn't realise she is beautiful on the inside and out.
This story was about love, loss, friendships and family. It captures the essence of New Adult with the character's journey of self discovery, personal growth and increase of responsibility. It isn't your fluffy romance novel and as much as I adore smexy laden books, I also appreciate thought provoking story lines that will make you question your own beliefs and thoughts.
Every character had a purpose in this story, every action had a consequence and everything was linked how it should have been.Read more ›
The folks who give this book a lower rating say it's "preachy" and it doesn't have any hot sex scenes. I don't find this story any more preachy than a friend telling me they have faith. And that isn't at all the center point of the story, so my guess is the negative reviews are from people who feel that the mention of faith is offensive or proselytizing.
This story certainly does NOT proselytize or soap box. This is a story about a wounded and disfigured soldier, a very young man who was idolized in school, but was always genuinely well liked and respected by his friends. He is an extremely endearing character. And it's also about the girl, a late bloomer who was invisible but had a chance to see beyond the veil of his popularity and had fallen in love with his kindness and intellectual nature.
I hand it to Amy Harmon for writing characters that are in-depth and believable. There was a guy in my school named Leif who was ruggedly handsome, independently stylish, always surrounded by friends, athletic and friends with everyone. He wasn't a player, he didn't use his popularity to gain big-man-on-campus status and he talked to everyone, regardless of their "clique position". I remember telling Leif once that he was really unique and he legitimately blushed.
The character of Ambrose reminds me so much of my teen-age crush, so guys like that exist. Then there's the character of Rita, beautiful and vulnerable because of her codependency, and Bailey who was born with Duchenne's and is the voice of reality.Read more ›
