Wendy's Review: Love Notes by Heather Gunter

Published May 7th 2013 by Smashwords Edition

How do you cope when the people you care for hurt you the most? When the way you feel on the outside, smothers you on the inside. And when you are left to face your demons alone, will you learn that only you have the power to overcome them?

Charlie has never had it easy. Between the constant moving and the incessant fat comments and jokes from her father, her self-worth is nonexistent. Her reflection in the mirror shows her nothing but a plain Jane. Music is the only thing that keeps her sanity in check.

Charlie catches the eye of the town star quarterback, Maverick. With her curves, her brunette hair, and the voice of an angel, Maverick has never met anyone like her. Everything that is different about Charlie just makes Maverick like her more. Unfortunately, Charlie doesn’t see it herself.

Proving it to her may deem harder than he thinks, especially when tragedy strikes and tears them apart.

Now standing on her own two feet she may finally learn exactly who she is, what’s she’s capable of and how very un plain Jane she really is.

This book lets you catch a glimpse of how mental abuse can affect someone. Charlie is a well written leading lady and your heart just simply goes out to her. I was so glad that she met Mav and he helped her see what a truly beautiful person she was no matter what her family said to her. Truly touching story....and an insight of the complexes that are given to young women whether at home or from our everyday world. No spoiler'll like it!
