Five stories about Holly and the trials of being a teenager: Best Friend, Worst Enemy; Secret Summer Dreams; Sealed With a Kiss; The Trouble With Weddings; and California Crazy. The storylines are for the young teen audience yet older teens would also enjoy this book. All five novellas are in one e-book file for $9.99.

Her mom calls her Holly Heart because she was born on Valentine’s Day. Her younger sister, Carrie, is her shadow and her best friend, Andie, is the exact opposite of Holly but yet they share the deepest of secrets. All the facets of a teenage world, including boys, first crushes, dads and step-dads, clothes, phones, jealousy are intertwined through the stories. When I read the stories I enjoyed the plot but also the way the author used everyday speech and happenings to bring the characters to life.

Even though I’m a middle-aged woman, I enjoyed the stories as they took me back to those days when I was a care-free teenager and how small things could become large crises. This would make great summer reading for any teen.
