Again, it is time for the fabulous Bookanista reviewers to share some literary love. This week I was lucky enough to have read Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala.
As school begins, 17-year-old Rand knows that she is pregnant. She wants to tell her boyfriend, but after being away at camp all summer she doesn't feel as close to Kamran as she once did. Making matters worse, she is increasingly certain that he is dating her best friend behind her back.
YOU HAVE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK!!!
I fell in love with it. It is a sad, deep, touching story that made me cry and wish I could jump into the pages and tell Rand, the MC, that everything was going to be all right.
Favorite Quote: My feet found the trail, joining the few joggers who braved the heavy, pre-rain air. Little did they know they were jogging past the worst day of my life.
Favorite Character: Rand. The main character. No competition. I felt like I WAS the MC. My heart broke along with hers. My hopes soared when hers did. I cried when she did (and I don't usually cry).
Best Part: The MC does things that might make her seem weak in today's society (like giving up her dream to become an artist in exchange for keeping her baby), but she is even stronger for doing them... because they are the right things to do.
So check this little gem out. Trust me. Totally worth it!
