Blurb: Fans of Hallmark movies and sweet stories of first love will adore Callie Henry’s new series!

High-schooler, Hannah, has always been self-conscious about her weight, so when hottie swimmer, Liam, pays her extra attention at her sister’s wedding, she has a hard time trusting his interest. Throughout the evening, Liam’s charm wins her over, until they’re falling hard for each other. But the next day, Hannah learns something that may ruin it all.

*****

All stories in the LIFE (Love is for Everyone) series portray true-to-life, teen-aged characters, with real personalities and common issues, who experience the lightning bolt of first love in their own, individual ways!

Review: This was a very sweet and realistic sorry about two characters who’ve both been signature because of something. Hannah’s a beautiful young teenager who’s been both mocked and made uncomfortable by her body. Not only did she get made fun of when she was younger for being overweight, when she developed a curvy body with a large chest, she got ogled. Yuck! She just can’t win. I really understand how it must feel to be lusted after by boys who’d previously mocked her for her weight.

Liam’s issues were more about bad choices. Peer pressure is difficult to deal with even in more mature people, so it wasn’t surprising that Liam had gotten in trouble. I didn’t find his story as compelling as Hannah’s, but as a mother of two boys, I can understand how debilitating his past would be. I’m glad the two of them were able to be there for each other.

My only complaint? It was too short! I’d love to visit with them again soon.
