You Are My Only (2011)
language
English
3.33 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is an interesting book told from the perspective of Emmy, the mother of an abducted baby, and Sophie, the baby now fourteen years old. The story alternates between the two women who have similar voices but still are recognizable as different people. The writing is quite ly...
Going Over (2014)
language
English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Actual rating: 2.5. Gorgeously written. Impressively researched. But something about the story just couldn't keep my interest. Set in Berlin during the Cold War, Going Over is a story of a boy and a girl in love, but separated by the Iron Curtain. Even though I grew up durin...
Dangerous Neighbors (2010)
language
English

review 1: At first, I wasn't really sure what this book was about other than Katherine lost her twin sister Anna in a sort of mysterious way. Once I understood the context - the Philadelphia World's Fair in the 1870's, I was able to ground my perception of the story. I thought the writing ...
Nothing but Ghosts (2009)
language
English

review 1: This first person narrative brought me into the world of grief with imagery and characters that wove together. I especially liked the bits of art, Barcelona and gardening and the way Kephart describes them. At times, I felt she got lost in descriptions and needed to use more of t...
Small Damages (2012)
language
English

review 1: I’ve picked this book because of the article on hellogiggle.com. It was highly recommended as a summer read. After all, it takes place in Spain, a perfect summer destination. I didn’t like it. It felt stuffy and nothing actually happened. Kenzie, still grieving her father, is shi...
De geur van sinaasappels (2012)
language
English

review 1: A gorgeously written book about a pregnant teenager who is sent to Spain by her unsympathetic mother. The plan is for the girl, Kenzie, to have her baby in secret and give the child up for adoption, then return and start college as if nothing had happened. I loved the quiet, lyri...
Gipsy Song: Le choix de Kenzie (2014)
language
English
3.52 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Mon avis : Une lecture facile et très intéressante sur un sujet qui à la base n'est absolument pas évident. Du coté de l'histoire : Après la mort de son père, Kenzie, une jeune fille de 18 ans, trouve le réconfort auprès de son meilleur ami. Mais très vite, elle tombe enceint...
The Heart is Not a Size (2010)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: “When you’re seventeen years old and you’ve never kissed a boy and you’re in all the honors classes, when you can’t stand the thought of sticking fingers into your eyes so you still wear glasses and not contact lenses, when you’re the middle child of three, you have what comes do...
Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir (2013)
language
English
4.1 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Kephart's way with language made me feel like my writing angel was in my head whispering wonderful things. She is gracious and generous without being wordy. I misunderstood the purpose of memoir before reading this. Especially wonderful is her use of memoir passages as examples. ...
