THE TATTERED GLOVES BY J.L. BERG
Young Adult Romance
Release Date: January 24, 2017
to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.
And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.
Am I brave?
Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?
This is a beautifully written and inspiring novel! It’s about being brave in the face of hardship. It’s about learning to live again, even when you don’t think it’s possible. And it’s about finding beauty in ordinary things. Honestly, this book touched my heart, and touched it deep. I wanted to go inside of this book and hug Willow, Addy, Sam, and Allison – something I never thought I would actually want to do.- These characters became REAL to me. I connected with them, I cried with them, and I soared with them. All of this was completely unexpected for me, and I am so glad that it gave me these feelings. For those who are looking at this book simply because the cover it eye-catching, I commend you to dive in! Of course this cover is beautiful (it’s one of my favorites of the year so far), but the story is even more beautiful. Not too often do I find a young adult romance that sweeps me off my feet but this one did. But let me tell you, it’s not all flowers and rainbows. There are some serious issues going on in this book, issues that will make you cry out for the characters because you KNOW this happens to people out here in the real world. Perhaps that is what made it all the more real to me… In any event, this is a fantastic novel, one that will easily be devoured in one sitting because it isn’t too long, and one that will certainly open your eyes to real human issues and emotions. Obviously, I highly recommend this novel. It’s a must read!
