*Review* Saving June By Hannah Harrington

                                                             Saving June 
                                   Release Date:November 2011
                                                     (Cover is different on Amazon)
‘If she’d waited less than two weeks, she’d be June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn’t consider that.’

Harper Scott’s older sister has always been the perfect one — so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone’s sorry, but no one can explain why.

When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister’s ashes into his-and-her urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She’ll steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going — California.

Enter Jake Tolan. He’s a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper’s sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on joining them, Harper’s just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what she needs.

Except June wasn’t the only one hiding something. Jake’s keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper’s life upside down — again.


   Hannah Harrington is a superb Author Saving June had me from the beginning until the very end.Saving June is the story of Harper Scott Who is trying to deal with the death of her older sister.Jake knew June and Harper has no idea how they knew each other.June always wanted to go to California so Harper,Jake and her friend Laney take her ashes on a road trip.Along the way they all do a bit of growing up and soul searching.
   I was pretty much blown away by Hannah's writing.This is my first book by her and W-O-W it did NOT disappoint.I was going through a small reading funk and Saving June pulled me out of it.I loved Jake and Harper.Kudo's on picking Harper's name for the main character as you do not hear it to often.Jake I imagined a young Adam Levine.This entire book is a winner.Read it.Love it.
