    I was blessed to receive a copy of this prior to it's release. Half a Heart was near to my heart. I love reading and up until 2 years ago, when we took in 3 foster kiddos, I would read one or two books a week. Since then I have read TWO books. I started this book on Friday and finished it today. I couldn't put it down. Logan broke my heart. Having a sibling group of four, as we added a baby brother to the original three, we are in the trenches of...

    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.Ever so often a book comes along that I truly can not put down.

    I received a ARC from the author via Netgalley and voluntarily reviewed!This is one of those reads that gives you the "feels." I am not going to lie, the first chapter was a little rough for me to take. You get introduced to nine year old Logan, the main character who is also mute, and his current living situation, which includes his dad, his dad's girlfriend, and his dad's girlfriend's daughter. You are immediately thrown into a situation where ...

A lot has to do with the reality: because you know it happens everyday to children all over the world.Logan runs away...

    This is a rather unusual book. Imagine a story where there are many more likable people than unlikeable. The "unlikeable" people will cause more troubles and put fear in everyone's hearts. A young mute boy, treated with unbelievable cruelty by his father,accidentally escapes from his home. His experiences afterward show him how much good is in the world. He meets people who are working through their own difficulties, yet so kind,caring and anxiou...
