  • Growing up during summer

    Second book from this author, and have to tell I love the way we are getting to live the life of Jessie through these books. Clearly liked this book more than the first one! We follow her trying to cope with the normal things young people find in their life, like love, disappointment, rejection, hope, bullying... The end of the book we have the summer holidays, and the first time Jessie tries out something new without her parents (at least that's what it seems like). Jessie clearly grows during that summer and at the end seems to be far more sure of herself. Looking very much forward to the third book in this series!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Liked this better.

    Compass is book two in the life of Jessie, and I have to say I enjoyed this book a whole lot more than I did Sway. I know that sometimes a sequel is not always good but this one was for me. Jessie is doing really good, life seems to be handing her a good one now a days. She is doing great in karate, she has a boyfriend, she has really grown a whole lot I feel. We start off with a prequel to the story and it was one that had me going what is going happen to Jessie? Dizziness and confusion had me wondering if Jessie was okay and of course made me want to read on to see what could cause this. I have to say I am proud of her for getting a trophy though! As the story progresses there is time while in the dojo and of course Ethan isn't there because of a tournament, one of the karate instructors takes it upon himself to treat Jessie like crap and I think she handled herself very very well the best she could. The outcome of is issue had me wanting to smack Ethan for not believing her when he asked her what happened. Yes he comes to his senses but he brakes her heart by not believing her he is so quick to judge when Jessie has never had a reason to lie about anything. Fast forward a bit and she ends up getting a summer job!!! Her job is going to camp and not just any camp but a camp where there are kiddos who have some things going on. For example some kids my have ADHD, other's come from a broken home, as well as having ADD and of course they are treated differently because of this. And Jessie makes a perfect camp counselor. We get to see how she interacts with children and you can tell she can understand what some of them are going through, I enjoyed the ideas she had to make doing karate fun while in camp for the kids. Jessie doesn't let being hearing impaired get her down at all, yes it is difficult at times but she always tries to see the light at the end of the tunnel so to say. After reading this I am hoping Destiny is going to be just as good as this one. I want to know what else does life have in store for Jessie. Will she still get bullied at school? Will her relationship with Ethan stay going on? Will she even get her black belt?

    Thanks for your feedback!
