    Thank you Penguin Teen and NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest reviewThe windows are down, the ocean air tangling my hair, music blasting, and I m sitting next to Jake Evans, who keeps smiling at me with that dimple that makes the world better Our main character Lovette is not only relatable, but she brought me back to when I was in high school and the ups and down Lovette signed a purity pledge when she was 12, she had decided she was not even going to kiss a boy until her weddi Thank you Penguin Teen and NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest reviewThe windows are down, the ocean air tangling my hair, music blasting, and I m sitting next to Jake Evans, who keeps smiling at me with that dimple that makes the world better Our main character Lovette is not only relatable, but she brought me back to when I was in high school and the ups and down Lovette signed a purity pledge when she was 12, she had decided she was not even going to kiss a boy until her wedding day Now that she is a teenager and a childhood friend is back in her life, she is second guessing a lot in her life One of those things is dating a boy, becoming friends with Jake Evans is bringing up a lot of feelings I loved how this was about her faith and was very realistic She would talk to God like He was right there, she questioned God, she got angry at God, but she knew He was in control and loved her unconditionally Even when she made mistakes, she knew God was on her side The author wove Christianity throughout this book, without it overpowering the whole book.Another thing I loved was how cheesy and cringy this book was, I am serious this takes you back to your high school days if you are no longer a teenager If you are in high school, I think you will be able to relate Lovette and her friends had me laughing, but also cheering on their friendship The friendship s that take place in this book were fabulous and the characters were very developed I want a group of friends like Lovette has While this was quite cheesy especially with the romance department it was really cute I loved the slow burn romance and really just how adorable it was I really enjoyed the family aspect and seeing the main characters struggle with her parents and brother, but the love she had for them as well I can totally relate to not wanting to disappoint your family, but you want to do what you love.The only thing that irked me just a little was the fast ending I wanted a longer ending with not such an open ending Not saying some things weren t wrapped up, but it felt fast and could have been slowed down Other than that, I really enjoyed this book, it was a really fast read I wanted to stay in this world because it was just really charming and made me happy Beyond the Break was a wonderful coming of age story that had family, faith, romance, and friendships

    I love this book Why First, it s the kind of book you want to buy several copies of so you can lend them out to the people you care about they need to read it and think about the ideas it explores There s so much going on in this novel on so many levels it s fun, funny, satiric at times, thought provoking, heart wrenching If you re a parent, you want to read this WITH your teenage daughter or son Tons to think about and discuss, parents Yes, the main character is a girl, but this story I love this book Why First, it s the kind of book you want to buy several copies of so you can lend them out to the people you care about they need to read it and think about the ideas it explores There s so much going on in this novel on so many levels it s fun, funny, satiric at times, thought provoking, heart wrenching If you re a parent, you want to read this WITH your teenage daughter or son Tons to think about and discuss, parents Yes, the main character is a girl, but this story is as much for boys as it is for girls Since it is a Young Adult novel, the main character wrestles with sex and sexual attraction and losing her virginity and the rightness or wrongness of all she feels And if you have a teenage son or daughter, good luck skirting that topic Teens think about it before they remember to suck air into their lungs, before they place right foot in front of left, before they check to see if there s a piece of spinach in their teeth And Buchta captures that marvelous, special, wondrous feeling of having an undeniable attraction for another I m officially in geezer territory, yet she somehow managed to remind me of that time and that feeling She s an extraordinarily adept writer I ve never surfed in my life, and yet after reading this friggin novel, I want to surf How does she manage to do that She captures a nighttime scene when the main character and her crush are out on the water with surfboards that have LED s It s a magical, poetical scene, and I m there thanks to her writing While Buchta manages to raise thought provoking issues, Buchta handles the whole subject of faith masterfully The main character is committed in her faith as a Christian, sure, but Buchta lampoons other characters who wear their Christianity as a badge they talk the talk but don t really walk the walk She makes her point with a light touch and never comes across as mocking genuine faith I love this complexity The main character never takes herself too seriously, and there are a lot of very funny moments when the main character makes fun of herself The novel plays with common themes While the teen usually scoffs at religion or faith or going to church and the parents are the earnest characters striving to make the teen see the value in the church life, BEYOND THE BREAK turns this on its head The teen is the devout one and the parents don t get it Buchta also threads irony beautifully into the novel The parents think they understand what she is really going through, but they don t, and the things they say are at times amusing and heart breaking Finally, this novel is just darn fun and funny It s not heavy or preachy or depressing I can t recommend this novel enough And I can t wait for the second novel from this incredibly talented writer

    Three words to describe this book Christian, cutesy, and conventional Lovette what a name is banned from swimming and surfing in the ocean after her brother s near fatal surfing accident She also loves God a lot and signed a purity pledge when she was twelve, saying she doesn t want to kiss anyone until the preacher says, You may now kiss the bride But then hunky Jake Evans walks into her life, and she knows she s toast First of all, you have to be really Christian to enjoy this book T Three words to describe this book Christian, cutesy, and conventional Lovette what a name is banned from swimming and surfing in the ocean after her brother s near fatal surfing accident She also loves God a lot and signed a purity pledge when she was twelve, saying she doesn t want to kiss anyone until the preacher says, You may now kiss the bride But then hunky Jake Evans walks into her life, and she knows she s toast First of all, you have to be really Christian to enjoy this book There s lots of religious theology, lots of quoted scripture, and lots of if you have sex before you re married, you re damned talk For me, it was too much Too didactic A little too problematic, especially with views about sex and kissing I don t care what people s views are on this, religious or not, but it drove me crazy that Lovette judged others for their actions In general, Lovette just felt like a judgy, Christian teenager who thought she was better than everyone else because she s good at surfing and has a great relationship with God There were also other small things I didn t like The first chapter is horrible and has really nothing to do with the entire book There s also a scene in the book that s a carbon copy of a scene in the book movie A Walk to Remember which is also Christian, so I m pretty darn sure the author borrowed the scene Also, Lovette makes a huge deal about how she hates lying in the first couple chapters, but proceeds to do it throughout the whole book without a second thought And the plot just moves really slowly This book just wasn t for me Writing Aesthetic Style 3Plot Movement 2Character Development 2Overall 2Thank you Penguin Workshop and NetGalley for the review copy
