(ARC) REVIEW: Keep Holding On by Susane Colosanti

Title: Keep Holding On
Author: Susane Colasanti
Date Published: 5/31/12
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Source: Publisher

Noelle's life is all about survival. Even her best friend doesn't know how much she gets bullied, or the ways her mom neglects her. Noelle's kept so much about her life a secret for so long that when her longtime crush Julian Porter starts paying attention to her, she's terrified. Surely it's safer to stay hidden than to risk the pain of a broken heart. But when the antagonism of her classmates takes a dramatic turn, Noelle realizes it's time to stand up for herself--and for the love that keeps her holding on.(

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

My Review:
I've read all of Susane Colasanti's books. I really feel like she writes such honest and real stories for teenagers.

This story is no different. Coloasanti takes on one of the biggest issues in America today, Bullying.

Reading this story just felt so real. The things that were said and done to these poor kids was just heartbreaking and its even more heartbreaking to know that things like this actually happen in schools everywhere.

Noelle is such a strong character, well at least she becomes such a strong character. I loved seeing her growth. To just sit back and watch for so long and finally stand up for not only herself, but others. It was great to see.
