The story was evenly paced, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, and the storyline was great. And I always love the fracturing theme, "you can't judge a book by it's cover", nobody's perfect. Plus the songs mentioned are a definite positive. I hope Melissa Walker writes more stories, definitely worth reading and buying.
I was intrigued by the boat setting and frankly a little disappointed the book was mostly told when anchored. I'd really looked forward to experiencing the boat life and lots of salty breezes and sparkling waters.
Everything about 'Unbreak My Heart' was actually perfectly likable. There's little conflict in the story which obviously make less opinions. It was actually Clementine I needed an extra push to warm up to - only because she started off quite snarly and snappish. Sometimes I'd find it quite annoying how dismissive she'd be of her little sister.
James was perfectly fine - friendly and open - although, not particularly memorable. I think more mystery and roughness to him would've suited, just because I'd like to think of him as a mysterious stranger who intrudes on Clementine's miserable summer.
James and Clementine's growing relationship was definitely on the simpler side and even though there wasn't too much to it, it was fine.
I liked that many, if not, most of the chapters started with a draft of the letter Clementine's trying to write to Amanda, her best friend. I found the plot regarding Amanda to be either underwhelming or disoriented, I haven't made up my mind. Probably a little of both.
One part of me would've wanted more out of it, learn more, and get more of a satisfying end. The second part of me felt like it was okay the way it was. It was pretty blurry whether Clementine was at fault or not and I wasn't really sure where the whole thing was headed, therefore I wasn't astonished it left off loosely.
I have to say, my favorite thing about the book was how simple it was. As much as I adore poetic and descriptive writing, it's also really nice reading a cleanly well-written, more compact book.
Clementine will have time figuring things out during the summer - stuck on a boat with her (sweet) family - and she'll ultimately know how to deal and where she stands.
The writing was neat and the story itself had lots of room to breathe and was very easy to follow. 'Unbreak My Heart' was all-in-all a measured and balanced read. It's the kind of book you relax to a Sunday afternoon.
Loved it? No
Regret reading it? No
Will I read more from the author? Yes
Although I'm not a boat person, I even found myself wishing I were reading this book on the open water. Walker adeptly conveys the confinement of their living quarters and the beauty and restorative effects of being out at sea
Unbreak My Heart is a great summer read, and one I'd recommend to any girl who has suffered heartbreak, or even just had a fight with a friend.
I absolutely loved Unbreak My Heart!!! The novel held my interest from the first page to the last. Fantastic writing and great characters. Normally when books go back and forth from the current time to "memories" or the past, It can get confusing or just not written well. This book was written perfectly! I have to gush about how much I love the name Clementine, in fact while reading Unbreak My Heart I told my husband that if we ever have a girl, we are naming her Clementine. He quickly said "No!" :-( Clem's character was a little selfish and melodramatic however realistic. This was a fun read that went straight to my favorites, and also teaches a great message about friendship and learning to love yourself. Unbreak My Heart is a perfect read for teens, adults will enjoy it too!
It is for a young audience. And for light reading, I enjoyed it. Although, as someone said, a bit more of the whole boat experience would have been nice.
