To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Martha Brockenbrough's first YA novel is going on my list of "must read" books, no questions asked. I finished the whole thing in less than two days. The characters are so relatable and gripping that you're completely sucked into the suspenseful plot. Brockenbrough makes you care about what's going to happen to Heidi and Jerome, so much so that I dare you to try to take a break as the clock ticks down towards the dissipation of Heidi's soul. With a strong message about the afterlife and hilarious dialogue, this novel offers a full spread of emotion that I haven't experienced in a book in a while. Truly a powerful and wonderful read, I couldn't recommend it more!!
I've never written a review for Amazon before and I don't know the author from Adam. I borrowed the book from the library, because it was there when I needed something to read, but it was so good that I bought myself a copy. The premise is guardian angel, but a complete departure from the usual GA YA. Heidi and Jerome are two of the most appealing characters ever. Not perfect, but trying so hard. Very touching. And did I mention funny? because it really is.
Absolutely loved this book, and it's not a genre that I would have typically picked. I'm buying it for my neice who is 14 - wish I knew more kids her age to buy it for! The ending was unexpected, but just perfect. I want more books from Martha!
