Review: Sweethearts by Sara Zarr

February 1st 2008 by Little, Brown Young Readers

Hardcover, 217 pages

Cameron Quick, Jennifer "Jenna" Harris Vaughn

Salt Lake City, Utah (United States)

As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also each other's only friend. SO when Cameron disappeared without warning, Jennifer thought she'd lost the one person who would ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she is popular, happy, and dating—everything "Jennifer" couldn't be. But she still can't shake the memory of her long-lost friend.

When Cameron suddenly reappears, they both are confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have take.

Sweethearts is a story about the power of memory, the bond of friendship, and the quiet resilience of our childhood hearts.


I just finished reading this book and I'm kinda sleepy now but ill try my best to have a good review, because this deserve it. :)
Its the first book I read by Sara and I don't know what to expect to this one, but It turn out to be super good and I liked it.
Jenna is always pretending, hiding her real self to other and its start when Cameron died or just she think that he died. He's her only friend when they are young, they are like out cast or loser to their old school and they spent most of their time with each other. Then, somethings happened blah blah... and after 8 years they meet again and a lot more happened. (I will not tell you the whole story ;P)
She struggle a lot of emotion and I feel it, even though I don't know what its like to have a past like her.

Even though the writing is not that good, i mean the author just write it, nothing special but when you read it you would really feel what the character feels. She really know how to put reader in big emotion. so all in all ill give this 4.5 stars :)
