A true underdog story, 32 Candles embodies the spirit of most young women trying to make since of themselves and how they can fit into the world around them. Everyone remembers the Davidia Jones’ of our high schools. Awkward, shy, “unattractive”, usually poor, and in general; an outcast. Following Davidia Jones through her maturation as her class outcast to a beautiful young woman (internally & externally) who loves herself and her world was quite enjoyable. Ernessa T. Carter has a good sense of humor that I think will make most readers share the laugh out loud moments I enjoyed. A feel good story mixed with romance, drama and humor. Definitely recommend to anyone to read.
I felt this book had a decent story line that with effort could have been a good read. Most of the plot was unrealistic to me, characters superficial and the books value was diminished with uneccessary sex scenes. I think the author should "step it up" on all levels of this one. My advice is to skip this one.
Overall, I enjoyed Revealed and found it easy to listen to. Concepts of God's grace, forgiveness, friendship and love weave into a feel good story that I believe most will enjoy. My only critique is some points seemed to be drawn out (Matthew's initial hate for Anna Belle...Anna Belles own diminshed self love). These ideas slowed down the book. However, if you like romance and redemption stories you'll enjoy this one.
