Book Review for Heath, Cliffs & Wandering Hearts by Laura Barnard

Heath, Cliffs & Wandering Hearts

by Laura Barnard

 Life for sixteen year old Savannah Franks has just been turned upside down. Her Mum’s business has failed and they’re forced to move into a maisonette in the rough end of town. 

She doesn’t want anyone to know her dire situation, not even her besties. So when the rest of the money for the school ski trip is due she can’t be seen not to attend. Everyone is going! She just needs to find a job. Add that to the list of getting a boyfriend and losing her pathetic virginity.

But working every spare hour in a job she hates on top of school work and mounting secrets doesn’t prove easy. Soon she’s keeping so many she’s not even sure herself what’s true and what’s not.

The only person she can lean on to tell the truth is her best friend Heath.

Only…did he get hot recently? That won’t make things awkward between them…right?

My Review:

     I started Heath, Cliffs & Wandering Hearts by Laura Barnard and finished it this morning. I found myself wanting to finish this young adult best friends romance. It's a perfect read for young adults or women who want to be reminded of the good ole days when it was fun to get in trouble with friends.

The characters in this story all standout and are easily likable,well maybe not one. The main character Savannah Franks, is not your typical teen even though she tries not to be the adult in the family. She has a great group of friends, the girls in the group have a virginity pact and have certain rules to making sure that moment is special. These teens hormones are roaring, will they be able to stay true to their promise. Savannah's life seems to be a mess with her mother losing her business and the family having to move to a small apartment with the grandparents and they have no money to pay off the balance due for the school ski trip Savannah had already signed up for, things just couldn't get worse...or could they?

Filled with embarrassment to where her life is, the only person she feels she can tell is her best friend Heath, who she has practically grown up with. Savannah never really noticed the changes in her best friend til others did, all she knew was that she needed to have him by her side to pick her up and talk to, he knew her better than any of her friends.

This is a sweet story of friendship, falling for the cutest guy and thinking he is the one, partying so hard with friends that bad decisions could be made and forgiving them for those decisions. I really did like this story, the only reason I am taking a star away is because I wish Savannah's brother would have added to the story line  in a different way, that is just my opinion. After reading this story I do want to read other books from Laura Barnard, she has a cute sense of humor and makes a reader feel as if they could be one of the characters. 
4 Stars for this fun but at times serious read.
