Reviews - What do customers think about Cross My Heart (Hidden Diary)?
Great book! Nov 29, 2006
I grew up reading the Secret Sister series and the Hidden Diary series by Sandra Byrd. Both, in a way, contributed to my childhood. My friend and I would pass them back and forth--our friendship, also, I think grew through these books because we could identify with the girls and their friendship. If you're wanting some warm advice, encouragement, or just some downright girl-fun, you'll love this book!
Cross My Heart Nov 18, 2002
Adolescence is like a roller coaster: there are ups, there are downs, there are times when you stomach fall to the ground, yet there are times when you are totally exhilarated. Lucy Larson takes the ups-and-downs of a young girl's "complicated" life, and relates it flawlessly to its reader. The issues dealth with are realistic and easy to imagine and relate to, even as an adult reader who is past this stage of development. Lucy Larson is a typical, young girl dealing with typical trials. It is interesting to watch as Lucy struggles with decisions about what her summer may include when her parents give her the option to decide what she wishes to do with it. This book clearly depicts how important friendships and relatedness truly are--especially to those in this age bracket--and the emotions that emerge when these needs are not met. Cross My Heart takes a peek at the relationship between daughter and parents, as well as realistically portraying how a teen may deal with situations when Dad and Mom are not seeing eye-to-eye. There is a lot to learn from young Lucy while reading this novel. Christianity plays a minor, almost secondary role throughout the book--until the last few chapters. I feel it would be more worthwhile and meaningful to stretch these ideas throughout the entire book. The last chapter was overwhelming with religious overtones so much that it's easy to lose site of Lucy's current dilemma and overall plot that carried the reader through the book to its happy ending.
