Book Review: Emily Rachelle's Sixteen

Happy February blogworld! Interestingly enough, I'm starting off the month with a review of a love story: Sixteen by Emily Rachelle.


The description is from the back cover: Nicole "Nikki" Johnson has never gotten along with her mother, so when she meets a great new guy, it's no surprise that Matt's age is all her mom sees. Just because he's twenty-four and she's sixteen doesn't mean he's a creeper! Thankfully, Nikki's dad allows Nikki and Matt to be together and see how things work out. Their relationship is fantastic and Nikki is on cloud nine...

Until the Fourth of July picnic, when things go too far. Now a very changed Nikki has to make choices that will affect her every relationship - with Matt, her parents, her best friend, and most importantly, God.

My review: 4 out of 5 stars. A very interesting story. I liked the unique way it was told, a story from a mother to her daughter. It was also cool to be able to look into Nikki’s emotions as the story unfolded, but then also Claire’s as she was being told the story of her parent’s romance. The ending was pretty sweet, too.

The characters were relatable and enjoyable to read about, though honestly, I did wonder where Nikki’s head was at sometimes. And I also didn’t understand the big deal about the dress scene (don’t want to give away any spoilers, but you’ll know what I’m talking about when you read it). Other than that though, I really liked the characters, especially Christy. She was a really good friend, the exact person that Nikki needed standing by her during that time.

I don't read many love stories, but I’ve never seen one quite like this before. It was an all-around good read and a great debut.

I received a free e-copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Emily!
