    Hmmmm. I am a little unsure as to how to rate this book. Although it is a worthwhile story, and certainly might be a blessing for a child dealing with the loss of a parent, it didn't knock my socks off. However, I'm not sure how much of that has to do with timing. Having just finished ...

    E ARC from Netgalley.com A well-written book with an engaging main character and the timely addition of a brother on the autism spectrum. Just not the book for me to read the week after a close friend had a heart attack. ...

    A very unique contemporary ya novel that will stay with the reader long after you finish. The story takes an everyday, although tragic, occurrence - the death of a parent - and puts a fresh spin on how it gets handled. Dealing with issues of grief, depression, romance, family and fr...

    This book is very sweet. It would probably be best geared toward younger middle grade readers (as long as they can handle the content, since it does involve the death of a parent). This is because the voice feels a bit young for thirteen and the writing is relatively simplistic. It wou...

    #FirstLine ~ The day my Father's heart stopped, I discovered an extra heart deep in my belly, below my right rib. I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. My Dad died of a sudden heart attack so this book touched my soul in a way no other book has. I cannot say too much withou...

    I need to get back to writing reviews immediately after I read a book. They are more detailed and (usually) more insightful when I do this. This was a well done story about an eighth grade girl who is going through an emotionally difficult time in her life. The family dynamics are c...

    The emotions Bass evoked from the reader were agonizing at times. I've read a lot of books about teenage angst and awkwardness lately. Not that those stories don't have merit or are even really good, but they don't match the realness and raw emotion in this book. Part of it is the seam...

    So many YA books have been based on grief recently. There has been a trend of grief among peers; people who are sick losing friends who have helped them through their illness. Yet I haven?t come across one about the loss of a parent. This is the subject of the The Girl with More t...

    The Girl With More Than One Heart is a gorgeously written, deeply moving story about death, grief, family, and growing up. It should be on every librarian?s list as a go to book to recommend to any young person who has experienced a death in the family. Set in the diverse and fascina...

    I realize that my rating in this book are probably influenced by the fact that I lost my mom two years ago and that as a young girl I had to watch my mom experience losing her dad?who was her person. This book touched my heart in more ways than I can express in words. I felt the pain...

    This is a wonderful book. The eighth-grade narrator, Briana, has just lost her adored father, and that leaves her a kind of orphan?because as far as she?s concerned, she lost her mother years earlier, when her brother, Aaron, arrived. Now she must take care of not only difficult Aa...
