Today’s a special day because I’m going to be posting two things, one of which is of course Wishlist Wednesday because you can never have too many books. This blog hop was started by Dani at Pen to Paper and it’s a way for bloggers to share a book that they desperately want on their shelf.
I’m sure many of you have seen “Favorite Books of 2013” blog posts or Youtube videos circulating all over the web the last couple of weeks. I have. They are a great way to find new authors or books to check out and that’s exactly how I came across this weeks choice for Wishlist Wednesday.
Author: Amy Harmon
Format: Only available as an ebook.
Blue Echohawk doesn’t know who she is. She doesn’t know her real name or when she was born. Abandoned at two and raised by a drifter, she didn’t attend school until she was ten years old. At nineteen, when most kids her age are attending college or moving on with life, she is just a senior in high school. With no mother, no father, no faith, and no future, Blue Echohawk is a difficult student, to say the least. Tough, hard and overtly sexy, she is the complete opposite of the young British teacher who decides he is up for the challenge, and takes the troublemaker under his wing.
This is the story of a nobody who becomes somebody. It is the story of an unlikely friendship, where hope fosters healing and redemption becomes love. But falling in love can be hard when you don’t know who you are. Falling in love with someone who knows exactly who they are and exactly why they can’t love you back might be impossible.
I first heard about this book from a Youtube video and it sounded intriguing. Most people on Goodreads are categorizing this novel as New Adult. This seems to be a story about figuring out who you are and who you want to someday be. I do believe that this book features a teacher/student relationship, and that might be a red flag for some people, but from what I’ve seen it’s done well. I have so many books to read and it’s going to take a while to finish them, but I can’t wait to get to this one. Also, for those of you who enjoy standalone novels this is another one to check out.
