Blog Tour-Just Breeze
Eighth grade starts out the same as every other year for Breeze Brannigan. She’s still the tallest student, boy or girl, in her class, wears shoes that would fit an elephant, and her smile reveals dazzling braces that blind everyone within ten feet. She also has to deal with the dented fender on her sister’s VW that they paint to cover up and the new girl in school, Allison, who likes to steal boyfriends. Breeze isn’t concerned. She’s everybody’s bud. No boy is interested in her. Then there’s Cam, AKA Carlomango Christiano y Moises, who Breeze thinks must be from another planet because none of the boys At Whispering Springs Middle School are that polite. He also has a secret, a secret that could mean life or death for Cam and his mother, a secret Breeze must help him keep.
Breeze reminded me of myself when I was younger. She's not the popular girl, she's a bit clumsy, she's got wild hair, and just feels out of place. This book was a delightful trip down memory lane. Breeze is a very lovable character. Her boring life gets a very unexpected shake-up when she meets Cam., the mysterious new boy that seems to like her. Breeze is a fun and at times funny story about a girl just learning to be herself. This is definitely a book aimed at the YA genre (on around the 8th grade level,) but I am a 29 year old woman and had a blast reading it! I'd recommend it for a quick fun read!
My Rating: 4/5
