Little Do We Know
Neighbors Hannah and Emory have been best friends since they were toddlers, living just 36 steps from each other. Now, neither can forgive the other for the careless words they spoke. So Hannah, who attends a Christian high school where her father is the principal, is dealing with questions in her faith, and Emory is preparing to go to school, far away from her mother and her mother’s new fiancé, without each other’s help. When Luke, Emory’s boyfriend, passes out in his car in front of Hannah’s house, their paths unintentionally cross again. They need each other more than ever, but how do they bridge the divide that split them?
In alternating chapters, each teen tells her story, and the tension that builds bursts in a secret that could break their friendship, and their families, forever. Stone uses kid gloves to handle the questioning of faith and the changes of a new father figure in the home. Both characters are personifications of familiar high school faces – the ultra-religious pastor’s daughter and the drama geek who is dating the school’s star athlete – and readers will wait impatiently to see if their relationship can be repaired. An excellent anytime read.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
