This is book #109 for me this year, and I'm so glad I saved it until the last few days of 2017. I think reading it in January would have ruined ever book after for the rest of the year! Sigh... I pulled an almost-all-nighter to finish, and it left me a sobbing mess! I'm not an emotional reader, so I'm glad I could experience this alone in the middle of the night rather than fielding a million questions from my girls about why mom is having a breakdown! LOL!
I highly recommend this for all of my Book Nerd friends. It's perfect for teens also as it is fairly chaste, and the language is PG. ( )

Picked this book because of a recommendation, it fulfills a prompt of a challenge, and I grateful that I picked it up right away. I am going to try to see through my many tears and post my review while everything is still fresh in my head. Amy Harmon has restored my faith in a clean romance. Amy Harmon's writing is very compelling and very approachable. This book is full of lessons in selflessness, pride (or letting go of all ego), shame, grief, insecurity, acceptance, and love. It is a fantastic book to read for anyone; especially teens and young adults who are growing up and may be struggling with finding themselves should read it.
Sometimes the flashbacks throw you out of the sequence of the plot, but it is part of building the story. The writing style is so engaging and surprising. The words flow in such a way that pierces the soul. There are so many great thoughts, and the events that occur within these pages stimulate the whole spectrum of emotions. I don't have the words to express how much this book touched me. "Making Faces" his is my first Amy Harmon book, and I guarantee--it won't be my last.
The author use moderate language (teenage boys, soldiers)--no F*bombs, but a lot of other words; mild-moderate violence (physical abuse, death, war-type violence but not overly graphic); mild-moderate romance elements (kissing, some brief touching, a few crass jokes, innuendo, unwed pregnancies with no details).
I know it is a book that I want to own a hardcopy on my shelves. ( )

Fern has been in love with Ambrose since they were 10, but she is used to being ignored. When you look like a 12 year old, have thick glasses, and braces all through high school, people don't really notice you. Bailey, Fern's cousin, best friend, and confidante, just wants to live life as best as he can with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Bailey's dad is the wrestling coach, so he is friends with all the wrestlers. Ambrose is the one everyone loves, he's beautiful, works hard, is the best wrestler, and has potential to bring glory to the town with a wrestling scholarship. When he decides to enlist, with his four best friends, after 9/11, everyone is surprised, but supportive. Sent to Iraq, only Ambrose returns, scarred and broken.

This book gives off slight beauty and the beast vibes, but has so much more to commend it. I love the friendship between Fern and Bailey, and Bailey and the wrestlers. The careful testing of the waters between Fern and Ambrose after his return, was amusing and touching. I'm not sure how I missed this Amy Harmon book, I've been a fan for a while. I bought this one for the high school, and it's been popular. ( )

I just didnt get it. Sorry not for me.

This was such a sweet love story, It had a great message, the message that Ambrose and Ferns romance portrayed – the importance of finding beauty in all things, on the inside and the outside and even in the ugly.

Fern has never been considered beautiful. Not even pretty. That makes her think that she has zero chance with Ambrose, the handsome high school wrestling star. So she loves him from afar. When Ambrose and his friends join the Army, Ambrose is the only one that comes back.

Ambrose feels guilty that he’s the only one that survived and in every flashback you can feel the pain and guilt that he’s dealing with. He believes that he deserves the injuries he suffered as punishment.

Fern and Ambrose’s relationship heals them both, when they meet again they are different people from who they were, Fern is a beautiful young woman and Ambrose has been changed and disfigured by war. They come together and help each other face their struggles and in doing they learn to love each other and love the person that they are.

Bailey was such an inspirational character, I love Fern and Ambrose but Bailey made me cry, Bailey is the kind of character that stays with you long after the story’s over, he stole the show, he’s one of the most inspirational characters that I have ever read. Absolutely love him. Overall this was an amazing read.
