As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also one another's only friend. So when Cameron disappears without warning, Jennifer thinks she's lost the only person who will ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she's popular, happy, and dating, everything "Jennifer" couldn't be - but she still can't shake the memory of her long-lost friend. When Cameron suddenly reappears, they are both confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken. From the National Book Award nominated author of Story of a Girl, Sweethearts is a story about the power of memory, the bond of friendship, and the quiet resilience of our childhood hearts.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this book or listen to a friend unless they were looking for a drawn out, disappointing story with a frustrating ending.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I was excited to listen to a book read by its author. I thought it would be an accurate portrayal of the author's intent (obviously). So when I listened and heard a boring, non feeling and less than appealing reader reading a very predictable book, that was frustrating at times, I was more than dissapointed. Maybe the story would have been better if read by an actress that could have manufactured feeling and emotion. But I never fell in love with the character or pulled for her because the reading was flat and emotionless. I felt frustrated, thinking the whole time that I wish someone else was reading it. That heavily distracted me from the book itself.


Do you think Sweethearts needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Nope.
