ABOUT THE BOOK
Guidance counselor Heather Browning is desperate. She needs a mentor to help Simon, a disabled student who is struggling at Gordon Falls High School. Unfortunately, hotshot Max Jones is her only option. Confrontational and cavalier, Max uses his flashy persona to hide the bitterness he's felt since his life-changing accident. Perpetually cautious, Heather finds Max's bad-boy bravado as intriguing as it is infuriating. But as Heather and Max work together to build Simon's self-confidence, they begin to trust each other. Max has never been slow and careful with anything. Can he be gentle with Heather's heart?
Gordon Falls: Hearts ablaze in a small town.

I thought the topic of this book was great. I think this is the first book I've ever read with such a topic, so that in itself was quite refreshing.
This may be a small book, but it has a lot packed into it. Bitterness, love, hope....it's difficult to have hope when bitterness takes center stage, and it's difficult to break down the barriers that bitterness builds, but this story shows that all of that can happen and more when you open your heart, learn to step a bit outside of your boundaries, and trust.
The characters were all easy to like, even the most difficult characters had reason for being so, ok...maybe 1 or 2 characters weren't so likeable, but what's a book without a few villains?
A very heartwarming read, very enjoyable...a quick read with a though provoking theme.
