Book Review: Unbreak My Heart
Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker Review by Arig
**This book will be released on May 22, 2012.**
My Heart is about a girl that falls in love unintentionally. Clementine
Williams had just had a fight with her best friend Amanda. It was over a boy
and Amanda ends up forgiving the boy and hating her best friend, Clementine.
The summer rolls around and Clementine’s parents decide to take her and Olive,
her younger sister, on a trip away from technology. They’re going to sail the
seas. Most of the trip Clementine is crying and angry because of the fight
between her and Amanda. The problem is that she isn’t able to tell anyone and
even so her little sister tries to comfort her blindly.
At one of the ports that the family
stops at to refuel, Clementine meets James. She bumps into him and knocks over
his shopping basket full of bananas. Little does she know that James and his
father are sailing on the same route. James and Clementine begin to spend time
with each other, getting to know each other and Olive tags along. When
Clementine feels that her relationship with James is beginning to take a turn
to the better, she confesses to him why her friend and she “broke up.” James
goes silent for awhile and Clementine goes back to being depressed for awhile
until she has a nervous breakdown and she tells her parents everything. The
story goes on with James coming around and both Clementine and James have a
relationship until the summer is over.
Overall, this story was really good.
I did enjoy it and it was a semi-quick read. At times I was confused because
the story kept switching from flashback to present but this story was good. I
would recommend this book to people who like chick-flick kind of books. I have
to say their sailing adventure sounds so cool and James sounds like a one-of-a
kind guy. I applaud Ms. Walker and give this book 4 stars.
