Keep Holding On-Susane Colasanti

A romantic and empowering book about bullying

Noelle's life is all about survival. Even her best friend doesn't know how much she gets bullied, or the ways her mom neglects her. Noelle's kept so much about her life a secret for so long that when her longtime crush Julian Porter starts paying attention to her, she's terrified. Surely it's safer to stay hidden than to risk the pain of a broken heart. But when the antagonism of her classmates takes a dramatic turn, Noelle realizes it's time to stand up for herself--and for the love that keeps her holding on.

Wow,What a great read!This book was about Noelle and Noelle's struggles with bullies at school,A neglectful Mother and new love.I dont know who was worse...Noelle's Mother or the kids at school.Both were bullies. Noelle is a strong young woman.I think everyone can relate to this book that has been bullied.I know I certainly could as my teen years were filled with it.This is my first read by Susane Colasanti and It did not disappoint.I will say it was a bit overpriced in my opinion for a kindle book at 10.99.

  1. I liked the book because the author knows what it's like to be bullied. The book and characters were very realistic. It was a sad story with a happy ending
