Page Amount:405,Kindle Edition

"Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.

Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us."

My Thoughts:
Making Faces is a roller coaster of emotions. Happy, sad, angry, love, joy, and death. Never have I had a book make me cry and laugh on the same page. I loved that Making Faces was set in Pennsylvania. I loved Fern and Ambrose. Their story is something that could be realistic. I will definitely reading more from Amy Harmon.

Making Faces is one of those stories that will stay with you after reading.

5/5 stars, for Hercules!!

Happy Reading, Ashley
