Book Talk Review; Keeping The Moon

 It's time for another Book Talk on a Book by Sarah Dessen!



 
 Never underestimate the power of friendship.

  When Colie goes to spend the summer at the beach, she doesn’t expect much.

  But Colie didn’t count on meeting Morgan and Isabel.

  Through them, she learns what true friendship is all about, and finally starts to realize her potential.

  And that just might open the door to her first chance at love. . . .

 Keeping the moon is the story of fifteen-year-old Colie, who is staying with her eccentric aunt Mira for the summer. 

 What is there to do in Colby, North Carolina?

 But then Colie gets a job. Working at the Last Chance Bar and Grill she meets Morgan and Isabel, best friends who couldn't be anymore different.

 She also meets Norman, the sweet, quiet, and talented Norman.

 Colie has spent her life hiding and being ashamed of what she's not.

 First it was because she was fat, then after she lost the weight it was becasue she gained a reputation that she didn't deserve.

 This book really hits the mark on discovering who you are and who your friends are.

 After watching Morgan and Isabel working through everything, their differences and similarities, after learning how to embrace the difference and accept who you are, Colie begins to realize, that it doesn't matter how others see you. It's how you act and how you see yourself, how those close to you see you, that really matters.

 This book is good for all those girls who rather listen to those other people, the ones who don't know you at all, than to those who see through your dyed hair, lip ring, and fuck off attitude.

 Friendship, and embracing is what is really important in life, and that is what Sarah captures in this book. 

 Sarah really embraces the thoughts of friendship in this book.

 Appreciating who you really are is important in this book.

 Letting love find you, in the most unexpected places is what's important in this book.

 And in life.
