Synopsis: The Spencer Hill Press release will have Bonus Content never before available.

Ambrose Young was beautiful. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She’d been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have . . . until he wasn’t beautiful anymore.

Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

My Review:

I really liked this book! The book starts around 2001 when 9/11 occurred. I already felt connected because that is exactly where I was when it happened. I was at school and the teacher turned on the TV, and that is when we saw the planes crashing into the twin towers.

Making Faces is a gripping and emotional ride that still has its cute and funny moments. First off I loved Bailey! I loved how he wasn’t depressed about his condition of being confined to a wheelchair and not being able to lift his arms all the way up. He was the heart of this story.

Fern and Ambrose were really cute. They both had their own inner battles that they had to get through when dealing with their outer shell.

This book will leave you with all kinds of different emotions, but the thing is it felt real. Especially all the things with the army situation and what happens there. I definitely recommend picking this one up to read.

  1. I haven’t heard very much about this book but I really want to read it. When you said one of the characters was wheelchair bound I just knew I had to read it. I am also wheelchair bound and I don’t come across books that have people who are in wheelchairs very often(hardly ever).
