popular guy, an athlete, but he s the sweetest Seeing him with Cassie showed it even He s protective of those he loves and doesn t tolerate mean people He was my favorite character in the book by far

heartbreaking tale of redemption Aria will be starting her new school in grade eleven, a school where she doesn t know a soul, no one knows her or what horrors she s left behind A new identity, a new beginning, A new start Finally a time to leave all her memories buried in the past They arrive in a town called Eastmonte where she and her mother will be living with her eighty year old uncle, she can become someone else Where she strives to become someone better.It doesn t take long for the neighbours next door to introduce themselves, Cassie whom has autism, and her gorgeous brother Emmett who is in grade twelve One of the popular hockey players at the school who has a bright successful future ahead of him.As we watch Aria as the new girl navigating her new life, you can t help but applaud her maturity as she tries not to stoop to the bullying that occurs around her even though we see her inwardly struggling when she finds herself in a similar situation that changed her life forever back at her old high school I think Carrie had a positive impact on Ari, seeing how she was getting bullied maybe was the catalyst to making her own her past mistakes, it was liberating seeing the change occur in Aria, she turned a negative into a positive There were so many positives I can take from this book, so many heartfelt moments, so many feels when it came to Cassie s family and how they dealt with an autistic teenager I loved Cassie, her highs and lows, her way of thinking Her happy disposition I applaud K.A Tucker for taking on this sensitive subject, she did true justice to the ugly side of bullying, she tackled this beautifully flag 75 likesLike see review View all 14 comments Jan 09, 2019 Pavlina Read sleep less blog rated it it was amazing Shelves arc, best cover LIVE

my heart And her brother Emmet, a wonderfully swoony in a popular jock, guy next door kind of way hero was the perfect boyfriend material for any teenager These three made up the heart and soul of this novel.But the supporting characters were, as I ve come to expect from this author, perfectly cast All of them were down to earth kind of folks The parents were protective and genuinely interested in their kids, a grouchy and dry hud uncle, a dog, and awesome teenagers that were undisputedly nice rounded up an awesome cast.The ending came way too quickly for my taste I wasn t anywhere close to be done with this novel And I could have easily read another 100 pages Especially since Aria and Emmet just started out and I wanted needed of their relationship.The one thing that irked me was the BIG secret that was hinted at, but never resolved until the very end I just knew that it would wreck my heart and everybody else s I hate having these unrevealed issues looming over my head I ll be waiting throughout the entire novel for the other shoe to drop I rather have this BIG OMG moment, one I don t see coming until it s too late, compared to a secret that s being mentioned at the beginning but not revealed until the end.Nevertheless, I m a new fan of all things KA Tucker, and I just hope she writes fast because I m already ready for her next novel If you want to chat with me

living in Canada but has already been recruited to attend college in Minnesota How great is that Melanie right That book is made for you Now it will be very difficult to write the review without giving away any spoiler but I am committed to write this without one hint to big reveals Because a big part of the fun reading this book is guessing WHY Aria and her mom are starting over.What happened to Aria I guessed something traumatic happened but I was right and wrong I won t tell about the plot What I will do is write about the characters, about what that book made me feel, about some non spoilerish topics broached in the book Aria is very easy to love She is that soon to be sixteen years old girl starting fresh with her mother and now living with her great uncle Merv.Her new neighbors have two kids Cassie who has autism and is a really solar girl and her big brother Emmet who is the boy next door every teenage girl would fall for Aria will soon feel very protective of Cassie, so different but so loveable Except that some kids don t react smartly to other kids being different My blood boiled like Aria s every time I witnessed one of them hurt sweet Cassie, either by ignoring her, either by making fun of the girl.Aria will be the new girl at school and as every new beginning for a teenager this will feel daunting Lucky for her Emmet and Cassie will take her under their wings.Aria could be any unsecure teenage girl who has experienced something that left her mom being overprotective and closely monitoring her interaction with others You feel that she needs to get back her mother s trust She really wanted to do things properly Yet as every teenager she also wanted some freedom Emmet was truly the epitome of good guy Not only was he handsome and smart but he also was great with his sister He was kind with every odd kid at school Always ready to protect So empathetic If I had been attending Emmet s school I would have fallen for the guy Hard I really loved how KA Tucker portrayed Cassie She was different but so lovely KA Tucker did not try to hide the worry having a child with autism causes to a family Parents worrying how the kid would fare once adult Big brother worrying who would protect his little sister once he ll be away attending college These are kids needing special attention, taking a lot of energy from their families but also giving back plenty of love and joy All along I was following Aria s new life, wondering what happened to her, trying to guess I was crossing my fingers in the hope that she would get to be with Emmet even if I did not know if it was in the plan as he had a girlfriend But a new start and love story are far from the only purpose of the book.It goes beyond a simple easy and sweet YA story to read The book shows that some actions have consequences That even the good intentions can sometimes have disastrous effects That plans can backfire It also challenges us asking if everyone can make mistakes and deserve a second chance, some redemption Does being in a dark place excuses your behavior When you do something wrong does it make you bad If you want a story that makes you think and ponder A story that will challenge you and your beliefs A story that will have you wondering if you are ready to understand, to empathize, to forgive A story that will flow effortlessly even with serious topics being discussed then you really, really, really should go for this book Have you read K.A Tucker s books before Thanks for reading Sophie Find me on Wordpress Beware Of The ReaderFacebook Beware Of

21, 2019Cliffhanger NoGenre YA, contemporary romanceThis was a really hard one for me to rate To say that I have mixed feelings is a huge understatement, most especially about the main character Aria I read a lot of young adult books with teenage characters, so her age isn t an issue in general I knew this would be set in high school with personalities and problems related to that transitional time in life It s what you would expect with a coming of age story I m not going to lie though, Aria was 15 years old for the majority of the book and at times her personality was silly than what appeals to me in YA I tend to zone out and miss notes I can t help it, though He has a hot neck I didn t think that was a thing, but it is definitely a thing.I think I like Emmett Like, REALLY like him But maybe you already guessed that He s easily the hottest guy in school Maybe on earth Age appropriate, yes Relatable to me at this time in my life, no Her reaction to Emmett was your typical giddy schoolgirl crush on the hot popular jock It didn t have a huge impact on my overall enjoyment, but I was finding it hard to connect with her because of it That s just a personal preference though, so it s not going to phase everyone.On the other hand, Aria seemed to have maturity in some ways that were beyond her years that I respected After moving to Eastmonte with her mother to start fresh, they meet their new neighbors, Emmett and Cassie Hartford Cassie is close to their age, but is on the autism spectrum and there is a childlike innocence to her that makes her different than your average high school student Not only does Aria immediately show her respect, but she goes out of her way to include her and offer her friendship At school, rather than joining a clique, she befriends people who are a little bit odd The people whom everyone else doesn t take the time to know as a person before passing judgement and censure So she may have been a bit giddy, but I really started to warm up to her I would say that the main theme of this book is bullying cyberbullying and it really shed light on the devastation it can cause So many teens take part in tormenting others and making their life a living hell, and don t think about the consequences of their actions Treating their hateful behavior as if it s a game, they don t think that the worst possible case scenario can result from what they re doing With how prevalent this social epidemic is now than ever on social media, I applaud the author for tackling it Everyone has an ugly side It s only ever a matter of how well they keep it hidden, and what makes it appear.Throughout the book, there are lots of clues that Aria has run from some sort of scandal that resulted in some mental health issues She tries to compartmentalize her old life from her new one, and convince herself that with her new school, all of her old problems are erased In other words, she s in denial big time Avoiding the uncomfortable feelings she doesn t want to focus on any, and trying to reinvent herself I just knew that somehow the skeletons in her closet would be uncovered, and it was only a matter of time before she had to confront them again Then the twist finally comes and knocks you off your feet No way, no how did I expect the secret that she was hiding It took me completely off guard and shocked me It was something that had me re evaluating everything I thought about her up until that point I debated with myself if I could even like this heroine after finishing, and whether or not she fully showed character growth to suit me Some of her actions at her new school showed that despite everything she was trying to put behind her, she still made careless choices she shouldn t have But I came to the conclusion that I suppose it doesn t really matter what my opinion is of her in the end The message is impactful, and it was told in a way that makes you sit up and pay attention Be the Girl explores a lot of light things that typical teens would feel and experience in young love It also digs into a heavy topic, showing the permanent effect bullying can wreak on lives It s a story that many will not only

because it ll change the way you look at the world Be The Girl brought tears to my eyes than once It filled me with an overwhelming sense of giddiness because I had finally found a book that I couldn t put down, never wanted to end, and won t stop thinking about anyone soon The youthful romance between Emmett and Aria gave me nostalgic feels of first love and unsettling emotions and raging hormones and it was both delicious and complicated and I loved every second This is a story that resonated with me because I could see myself on these pages I ve been there, in the dark places, and as painful and unsettling as those feelings were when they came to the surface, this story is a testament to the fact that things do get better People do grow and change and learn from their mistakes It s a potent, necessary reminder that you re not alone and that all we really need is a desire to understand each other What a beautiful world we d live in if we simply sought understanding instead of isolating ourselves from what looks a little different What a brilliant book KA Tucker delivers with Be the Girl.

exception This truly is YA, and as a parent of two young adults, BE THE GIRL is a book I would encourage them to read.Tucker takes on a subject that has become a buzz word in our time, bullying, and does it in such a way, that at some point the reader begins to gain a little understanding behind the motives of the bully We may not agree with the actions taken, but a bit of understanding does occur We see how easy it is to get caught up in the wake as things begin to snowball While at the same time, I had so much empathy for those that were being bullied I was so angry on their behalf Something Tucker also does brilliantly, is the creation of the character, Cassie From the descriptions of her mannerisms to her voice inflection, it was clear Cassie was born from love One of my favorite parts in the book comes when Cassie asks Aria if they will still be friends next year when Emmett goes away to college Those paragraphs were written with such love and evoked such compassion, I couldn t help but cry BE THE GIRL was poignant, funny, heartwarming and redemptive, it was about looking past each other s differences and accepting others for who they are But above all, it s about

year when I finally checked Ten Tiny Breaths off my TBR list and was able to read an ARC of The Simple Wild, which made my favorites list of 2018 I m impressed with K.A s easy writing style and relatable storytelling I was eager to check out Be the Girl, especially since this will be published Independently of Atria While my attention has recently drifted to traditionally published books, my heartstrings are still tugged by Indie books.Guys, Be the Girl is an important book It s likely one of the most influential YA books I ve ever read The topics discussed here are incredibly important and there are things I wish I could discuss in greater detail, but for the sake of avoiding spoilers, I need to keep certain points mum.I especially enjoyed the beginnings of each chapter starting with a journal entry from our main character, Aria This added an element of mystery and a link to past events that kept me eagerly turning the pages, particularly in the beginning of the story This allows readers to get to know her on a personal level, rather than reading her through interactions with friends and family members My thoughts on Aria as a character are up in the air at this point One thing I can truly say is that she seems like one of the most realistic teenage characters I ve ever read.The hero of the story to all readers will be Emmett, without a doubt He s the guy everyone wants to know and be around in high school The guy you would assume is a jerk, due simply to his magnetism, only to discover he has a soft heart I couldn t help but love the guy The ways he showed his care for his autistic sister, Cassie, were incredibly heartwarming Emmett made me want to be a gentler person I could go on and on about each character, but I don t particularly enjoy reading reviews about characters I ve yet to meet myself, so I want to dive into the meat of the story without giving too much away The first half of this book flew by as I was baited each chapter with interesting tidbits that made me eager to see what would happen next As the story drew on, however, I felt it became a bit predictable and found myself reading faster if only to get to the twist One of the things that is a challenge for me with YA books as an adult are the mundane life scenes going to school, coming home, doing homework I hate for my age to start showing, but these scenes bore me This was no fault of K.A Tucker s, as this book fits smack dab in it s intended genre This aspect only reflects on my personal enjoyment.Despite my three star rating due to my enjoyment, not the story , because I find myself moving further away from YA every year, I believe this book will be well received by readers of all ages Its importance in informing the young and old of the bullying teenagers face in the world today is unparalleled If I was a teacher, this book would be recommended to students constantly and hopefully very rarely on my shelf K.A Tucker did an amazing job of bringing real world issues to life with her characters and making me feel such intense empathy toward kids growing up today None of us are perfect, but with the help of books like this one, maybe we can slowly become better

idea what this book was about as I did not read the book blurb All I knew is that it was a YA story.The narrator is almost sixteen year old Aria Jones 1st person POV The book takes place in Canada The story starts with her and mom moving cross country from Calgary to a place in Ontario an hour away from Toronto.Aria and her mom are moving in with her mom s 80 year old uncle Their new next door neighbors have two teens Cassie sweet, kind girl with autism and Emmett star hockey player.Aria has a secret This is hinted at throughout the book It is the reason for the cross country move.Things that I liked about this story Hockey Emmett is in his last year of high school And he is a star hockey player with scholarship prospects at US universities I enjoyed the hockey aspect of this story, especially what went on in the stands during the games.Track running Running also factors into this story And I really enjoyed how it played into the story Although I wish that we had gotten of the school track team.Autism One of the main characters in this book is 15 year old Cassie I absolutely loved this character and how she was portrayed I think that she added so much to this book.Dogs I am not even a huge dog lover, but I just loved the stuff with the animal shelter and everything to do with dogs in this book.The book deals with serious issues that many teens face And I think that this story is an important one There are characters in this story who are awful But just because you do a bad thing does that mean that you are a bad person Is there a difference between someone who is horrible and vindictive vs someone who grows and learns from their mistakes This book was so much meaningful than I was expecting And I liked that the author waited and let us get to know all of the characters before telling us the secret.The epilogue was really good And the author s note acknowledgments at the end were significant.I was absolutely not expecting this book to deal with such important issues This book is significant and it will make you think.Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest and unbiased review flag 14 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 20, 2019

time to read Be the Girl pulled me out of that funk within the first chapter As soon as I started reading, I knew I wouldn t get anything done until I finished it I found Aria relatable, Emmett swoony and Cassie adorable almost immediately I went into the story blind literally not having even read the blurb and I m glad I did Be the Girl blew me away.I m not going to dig deep down into the plot here All you really need to know is Aria is a girl trying to escape her past and shape a new future in a new town We don t know what all that past contains in the beginning, but it unfolds throughout the book Her new neighbor is delightfully sweet and swoony a genuine great guy and I basically just wanted to hug him and his sister, Cassie, who is autistic Actually I just loved the whole Hartford family Aria s mom and uncle were wonderful, too But, I digress Aria s a new girl in a new town with new situations and new people to deal with Plus she has a crush on her neighbor I don t blame her who has a perfect girlfriend So, yes, there s some teenage angst But I was here for it.I could list a million little things I loved about Be the Girl, but I won t Instead I ll just tell you that you should read it It was a thought provoking, unexpected and absolutely gorgeous book Oh, my feels They got pummeled for sure during this book But, in the best way possible Both sad and happy tears were shared and, I swear, at one point I didn t even realize I was crying until a tear hit my iPad I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Favorite Quotes Sure, he s nice, and cute, and funny But I just didn t feel that thing You know that thing when you meet eyes with a guy you like, and then they smile at you, and you have to remind yourself to breathe.This whole crushing hard on your neighbor when he s in love with his beautiful and saintly girlfriend thing sucks, big time But, at least I get to see him every day Friendship is better than strangers, right Years from now, if anyone asks me what I did for my sixteenth birthday, I ll tell them I kissed Emmett Hartford That s all I ll remember, and it will have been the best birthday of my life Any rose can succumb to rot, given the right conditions But, with enough attention, it can come back better than before flag 11 likesLike

drama However, Tucker expertly crafted an adorable romance within a much poignant story about bullying, inclusion, and forgiveness.Be the Girl seems like your typical high school romance novel with a little something I fully expected Tucker to touch briefly upon bullying and its consequences since the main character s past, but I was not expecting what Be the Girl actually delivers At a certain point in the novel, the story becomes so much and it is absolutely incredible There is an obvious shift in tone and direction that, in hindsight, is inevitable, but so well written One of the characters is a fifteen year old girl named Cassie who has autism I m not an expert in autism, but Tucker s portrayal is well informed and genuine Also, the characters reactions and actions towards Cassie are authentic and informative There are so many moments where Cassie is the highlight of the scene that I would give her the breakout role award for this novel.Be the Girl prominently features a romance, so there is some of Tucker s signature chemistry and tension, though it is rated PG.One of the things I loved most about Be the Girl is the fact that it s set in a town outside of Toronto I can count on one hand the number of books I ve read that have been set in a Canadian city Tucker is from the Toronto area, so I m excited to see of her novels set in and around Toronto Overall, Be the Girl is a breath of fresh air when it comes to YA novels set in high school Tucker has created a novel with characters that are competent yet na ve and a highly relevant story about bullying and forgiveness all housed within an adorable first love romance I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review flag 11 likesLike see review Jan 31, 2019 Ang Sizzling Pages rated it it

you see is what you get with her And that isn t always the case, and especially in high school people can be absolutely awful When Aria moves to a new town, Cassie is the first one to adopt her as her new friend She always can t stop talking about her great big brother Emmett He was such a great guy and very protective of Cassie Aria develops a crush on him right away, but who can blame her.I think Be the Girl is a very important book for people to read because it sheds light and creates awareness on certain topics that is very relevant especially with social media It also show the other side, which I loved I thought I had this story all figured out, but then the author hit me with a plot twist and left me speechless This book had me on edge and in tears a couple of times I do wish the book was longer, or that the last couple of chapters weren t that fast paced It left me wanting , and I kind of want a New Adult sequel The connection between Aria and Emmett was there, but not enough that I 100% believed in it But on the other hand, I also kind of liked that because it felt real They are teenagers and they still have a lot of growing up to do K.A Tucker did an amazing job with this

important story And I have to say, Tucker managed to tell it with so much tenderness and tact, it was beautiful even when it was ugly Aria moved across Canada with her mother to live with her great uncle And it was clear from the beginning of the story that there was trouble in her past Big trouble Coupled with a father who had a second family and who left Aria and her mother behind without a backwards glance Things had been so bad that she had even changed her last name before moving.Be the Girl is about starting over But it s also about not being able to bury the past And again, Tucker weaved such a fantastic story, with characters that grew exceptionally Characters who wanted to be better Characters who understood how precarious high school can be All the characters were well developed, and I think that s part of what made the story so incredibly strong.Be the Girl is a necessary story, and both teens and all people who have contact with teens should read it flag 10

I was supposed to love Aria and Emmett and Cassie and whoever else I just didn t It really fell flat for in that department.Besides the topic of bullying it touches heavy on it in the last 30% this book didn t really have a consistent plot We were reading a story, about people, but nothing was really happening I felt like I was watching one of those reality shows that follow people around day to day and films their mundane activities I speed read at a lot of time because nothing was actually happening.I was reading my friend Ashley s Ashes Books and Bobs and she mentioned how the mundane, every day scenes in this book really dragged it down for her and I completely agree I won t even say that it is just YA books that do that to me though Any time I read a book that spends time telling you what characters are doing or feeling as opposed to showing you, I instantly lose interest All in all Be the Girl wasn t awful I feel like any coming of age girl should take the time and read this one If you have a daughter have her read this one Knowing that this is something that happens every single day should be enough of a reason to share the good lesson this book offers And for that, I
