“…They would get their own full color page in the yearbook for sure. Christine with her full, glamour girl smile and Sandy with his friendly, crooked grin… Lynn sighed. That was the perfect scene. It couldn’t be any other way and be right…”
Combination locks, confusing class schedules, first love, Algebra, peanut butter crackers and a handsome senior with gray- green eyes.–And that’s just the first week of high school! Freshman Lynn James is trying her best to navigate her way through the confusing hallways of Trelawney High School. For years, her life has been all about playing violin, hanging out with her best friend Patty and spending time with her mom and dad. And, sometimes even her little sister Tabitha. But now that she’s finally in high school, Lynn senses new, unfamiliar doors opening all around her. Will Lynn be able to find her own song? Or, will she get lost in the sea of sour notes at Trelawney High?
An engaging novella about a high school girl trying to find her own path.
A girl, a boy and all that everyone of us experienced during those happy, troubled and unforgettable times of High School. All this is wrapped up in Elizabeth Huss’ book “Carolyn’s Song.”
Ever look at that one boy who’s face and marvelous smile took your heart in a second flat? Then that gut punch comes when you realize “Hey, is THAT his girlfriend?” Drama of the teen years is brought front and center in this heartwarming novella by Huss.
I took a trip down memory lane with this tale of young love. Remembering my first real crush and how head over heals I felt when he returned my affections. Also brought back to life for me was the nerve wracking experience of that freshman year of high school. Huss did a super job re-creating those tender years.
Slip back on your letterman jacket and grab a Cola, sit back and enjoy a time travel adventure of your yester years with this book, you’ll have a blast!
I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
