Amelia's Book Room: My Heartbeat

Hey, guys! This week's book has some interesting topics going on. It felt very short, but maybe I was just rushing to get through it and add it to my reading list goal--which, by the way, only made it to 92 instead of 100, oh well!

In Garret Freymann-Weyr's novel My Heartbeat, Ellen is torn between her two best friends. One is Link, her older brother, and the other, James, her brother's best friend. Ever since seventh grade, she has been totally, madly in love with James. It has become a running joke among the three friends, but secretly it's anything but funny to Ellen.

But when she starts her first year in high school, she wonders about something she should have seen all along. What if Link and James are in love with each other? Asking this stirs up a disagreement between the two friends, leaving Ellen stuck in the middle while they try to sort out who they are.

This was a very thought-provoking book, and worth the read. I'm going to have to check out Freymann-Weyr's first book, When I Was Older. Maybe some of your resolutions for the new year are to read some more books? I know I will! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays. Happy reading!
