Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn

Thursday, May 1, 2014

Summer, boys, and friendships gone sour. This new series has everything that perfect beach reads are made of!

Gemma just got dumped and is devastated. She finds herself back in the Hamptons for the summer—which puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend that she wronged five years earlier. Do people hold grudges that long?

When a small case of mistaken identity causes everyone, including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh, to think she’s someone else, Gemma decides to go along with it.

Gemma's plan is working (she's finding it hard to resist Josh), but she's finding herself in embarrassing situations (how could a bathing suit fall apart like that!?). Is it coincidence or is someone trying to expose her true identity? And how will Josh react if he finds out who she is?

Katie Finn hits all the right notes in this perfect beginning to a new summer series: A Broken Hearts & Revenge novel.

Goodreads Summary

This summer adventure of mistaken identity is something that would be right up the alley of a YA drama lover. You find yourself getting twisted up inside about all the lies and odd situations that Gemma encounters as this book is definitely good at presenting the awkwardness that life presents us sometimes.

I always find it interesting to read about the lengths that people go to when they are pretending to be someone else. The outright lies and deceit that you read about here can put you in a mental whirlwind that I imagine the characters would get tired of facing. Everyone gets what they deserve in this book though, so there is no disappointment here. This is a good quick read for the summer and for readers who enjoy the drama filled teen stories of young love.

  1. i have an ARC of this but my sister will be reviewing it.. i don't like it when books center around a person's lie.. it makes me agitated and unable to let out an exhale until the secret is out.. i don't know if it's just me or not.. but still, it's morgan matson (Katie is her pseudo name!) so i'm willing to give this book a try!
