Review: Just Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure

Just Breeze by Beverly Stowe McClure

Genre: Young Adult
Paperback: 196 pages
Publisher: 4RV Publishing LLC
Rating: 3.5 / 5

Breeze is the story of a young girl entering the 8th grade and trying to find herself by trying out different things in her school including her first dose of puppy love and yikes cheerleading!

Cam is the mysterious new boy that catches Breeze's eye and he likes her alot too but he speaks a whole nother language it seems and he has a big secret that could be deadly. Can they ever get it together?

This was a really clean and funny read but my heart went out to poor Breeze even though she didn't let things get her down. She actually took most things in stride. It's a great read for tweens because Breeze is so easy to relate to and goes thru so many things that torture the tween society of today.

Breeze is, as you say, easy to relate to - and refreshingly normal and well-adjusted. This book is a pleasant change from the myriad "dark and troubled" teen books out there. I'm almost finished, and don't know whether I'm eager to learn what happens in the end, or sad to GET to the end. I think my daughter would've enjoyed it, had it come out when she was in middle school. I know I would have!

Thank you for hosting me today, Jen, and for your review. I appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you for stopping by, Holly. When I read a book, even if the subject is serious, I enjoy a bit of humor. Life's sad enough sometimes, so I prefer storie that leave me with a smile.

Thanks for the nice review Jen. I loved this book. I think it would make a great movie. The suspense and the sports will attract young men and Breeze and her exploits will ring true for young women.

You and your readers can check out past stops on Bev's virtual book tour at our tour publicity blog. Bev will be on tour until December 16th. All future stops will be posted at that blog as well.

Thanks again. I hope you and your readers enjoy the holidays.

Oh, a movie. Wouldn't that be cool. Or a TV series. Mmm. Know any good producers?

Thanks, Cheryl, and GFDesignz for stopping by.
