I Will Save You

I read I Will Save You, by Matt de la Pena, for a review that will be published in Library Media Connection

This book would be enjoyed by teens who like a realistic story about a teen boy who has had a very difficult life and is trying to overcome tremendous obstacles. This is what I usually refer to as a "teen problem novel."

Here's a summary from Goodreads:

Kidd is running from his past and his future. No mom, no dad, and there’s nothing for him at the group home but therapy. He doesn’t belong at the beach where he works either, unless he finds a reason to stay.

Olivia is blond hair, blue eyes, rich dad. The prettiest girl in Cardiff. She’s hiding something from Kidd—but could they ever be together anyway?
 
Devon is mean, mysterious, and driven by a death wish. A best friend and worst enemy. He followed Kidd all the way to the beach and he’s not leaving until he teaches him a few lessons about life. And Olivia.

  1. I bought this one when it came out because lots of people on Twitter were promoting it. Plus the cover is gorgeous. Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but look forward to seeing your review!

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
