Sweethearts | The Friday 56 & First Line Friday

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

And happy February!

It's a month for hearts and love and sweets, so this book seemed like a perfect one to finally put on a monthly TBR.

First Line: A dripping faucet.

From Page 56: Here was this guy I hadn't seen in eight years who tracked me down and knew where I lived and turned up at my school for no good reason. Like a stalker.


As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also one another's only friend. So when Cameron disappears without warning, Jennifer thinks she's lost the only person who will ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she's popular, happy, and dating, everything "Jennifer" couldn't be---but she still can't shake the memory of her long-lost friend.

When Cameron suddenly reappears, they are both confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken.

From the National Book Award nominated author of Story of a Girl, Sweethearts is a story about the power of memory, the bond of friendship, and the quiet resilience of our childhood hearts.

Now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.
And be sure to stop by Hoarding Books and Freda's Voice for a peek into other books.


  1. There is nothing louder than a dripping faucet!

    And a story about a stalker-like friend could be creepy/good. Here's mine: ”COME FIND ME”

  2. This sounds like a great story. I'm featuring The Military Wife by Laura Trentham from my review stack this week. Happy reading!

  3. That faucet would drive me nuts! Here's my First Line Friday if you'd like to stop by! I'm also a blog follower.

  4. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I'm sharing the first line from True Nobility by Lori Bates Wright but I have no extra line to share right now b/c I'm currently in-between books and getting ready to head out to Snow Camp with the youth group. Brrrrr! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Sweethearts does sound like the perfect February reads. I love that 56 excerpt. I imagine this one will be good. I hope you are enjoying it. Have a great weekend.

  6. I actually have a dripping faucet that needs fixing. LOL This sounds fun and such a cute cover.

    My Friday 56 from Match Me If You Can

  7. I like the quote. Enjoy your current read!

  8. LOL @ the beginning... like duh. Sounds like a fun read! Happy weekend!

  9. My first line is from A Desperate Hope by Elizabeth Camden: "Alex Duval's first hint of trouble was when Eloise failed to appear at their hideaway."

    Happy Reading to you!


  10. Happy Weekend! My first line (well, first 2 lines) is from "Ellie's Redemption" by Molly Jebber:

    "Ellie Graber glanced at Joel Wenger across the room. Her heart raced, and her cheeks warmed."
