Making Faces by Amy Harmon is one of those age-defying books which is not just suitable for the young generation, but will strike and pull at the heart strings of those who have started to believe that YA/NA/CR novels are only worded hormones.
Making Faces touched my heart on countless occasions. Not only did Amy Harmon's writing captivate and mesmerize me throughout the novel, my logic agreed to whatever was being written. Being a spiritual person myself, the other-worldly aspects touched upon in Making Faces, make it a beautiful read. It is a total body-mind-soul experience.
While reading Making Faces, I laughed, cried, cheered, swayed and even clutched the kindle to my heart with overflowing feelings. If you want to feel, read Making Face. Oh, I felt every word, every sentence, every thought and every character.
I specially loved Fern because readers like me are in a continuous search for (mentally) strong female protagonists. Fern in Making Faces in unforgettable and you will love her for her straight-forward, sometimes blunt and otherwise beautiful perspective of life and those around her.
Making Faces is filled with so much love, appreciation, grief, loss, admiration and is truly inspiring without even trying to sound like an inspirational novel.
Amy Harmon did justice to highlight each and every character with beautiful narratives and interlinked stories and sequences. It was a touching read and Making Faces will stay with me forever.
Tip: Sit with this book with a box of tissues. You're going to need lots of them for all the right reasons.
Love you so much, Amy Harmon! You have a beautiful soul!
