KIM'S REVIEW~TO MY HERO by Danielle Sibarium


It would’ve been different if I had courage, even an ounce of it. But I was a coward from the day I met you, Ryan Crowley. I still am. In the end it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is the same. It’s my fault.

When the unthinkable happens Carly Cavanough is left beaten, betrayed, and devastated. Her best friend doesn’t understand. Her parents won’t listen. Everyone in her life turns against her. She’s alone. Completely alone, except for Ryan Crowley, the boy she’s been crushing on for years. She won’t admit to him what she can’t admit to herself. But he understands without words. He knows more about what she’s going through than she can possibly imagine and he knows what it will take to start the healing.

With Ryan’s help Carly begins to piece together the fragments of her once perfect life and embarks on a journey of love and healing, just long enough for the rug to be pulled out from under her again. Can she find the strength and will to pull herself together to save Ryan and herself when their lives are on the line?

WOW!!! I was NOT sure in the beginning when I started reading this book if I would make it through it or not, due to the fact, that she was telling her story in 1st & 2nd person. It was distracting in the beginning but I figured out eventually why she told the story the way she did!! KUDOS to you, Danielle!!

Carly Cavanough & Ryan Crowley are two seniors in high school with only a couple of weeks left before graduating. These two have been close friends for awhile & care deeply for one another, BUT neither one knows how the other one feels. One New Years Eve, Carly & Ryan were supposed to spend it on a date, but because her dad started putting his work before his famiy, Carley had to spend it with a client of her dads. Their son Will becomes infatuiated with Carley & gives her a KISS at midnight. Carly wanted it to be Ryan that had kissed her.

One night while at a party at her NOW boyfriends house, Carly comes face to face with Ryan. Carly & Ryan hadn't spoken in months & they try & talk about what happened that got them to this place they are at now...then HE walks up and interrupts them. Will is NOT happy to see Carly talking to Ryan so he ends their conversation by basically telling him to TAKE A HIKE. Ryan doesn't blink an eye & he will move when he dang well pleases. Carly is NOT happy with Will. Ryan kisses Carley on the cheek & then leaves.

Carly decides that she needs to be alone & get away from the craziness!!! But, little did she know that her life is about to change.... & boy does it ever change!!! I hate what happened to Carly & I hate how her parents turned their backs on her as well as her best friend. Ryan NEVER left her side. He alone & with some help from Carly, herself, brings some life back in to her.

Carly feels abandoned by her parents. They have completely turned on her & she wishes that things would go back to the way they use to be. Her dad blames her for their hardships because she was NOT doing her part. He wanted her with Will ( Scumbag) whose father owned a chain of clothing stores. Will's father was a prominent client of Carly's dad He HAD to cater to them...& he DEFINITELY did!!!!

Carly's parents eyes were finally fully opened to what had been going on right in front of them!! It took a tragedy for them to see it! Carly has a lot of healing to do to overcome her ordeal. She is a strong young lady who has a wonderful guy who loves her unconditionally!! Those two will face many more obstacles...Im sure but i feel they will overcome anything & everything thrown at them. I don't want to give too much away about this book because it is a hard one to review. Not because it's not good...because it is.. It's just a hard one to review. Once you read it, you're gonna love it ;)

I give To My Hero 4 Crazie Stars!! ~Kim
