Primo libro della serie Contours of the Heart, composta di tre libri, ognuno autoconclusivo, ma che consiglio di leggere tutti perché solo in questo modo è possibile scoprire ogni retroscena e capire fino in fondo i personaggi, il loro carattere e gli avvenimenti raccontati.
In questo libro la vicenda è narrata in prima persona da Jacqueline che, andando contro la sua voglia di frequentare il conservatorio, ha invece seguito al college il suo fidanzato storico Kennedy. Ma all’inizio del secondo anno lui la lascia e così Jacqueline si ritrova sola e ignorata da tutti quelli che frequentavano insieme. La notte di Halloween subisce un tentativo di violenza da parte di Buck, un membro della confraternita del suo ex, ma viene fortunatamente salvata da uno sconosciuto che ritroverà il giorno successivo nell’aula del corso di economia che frequenta. Jacqueline è attratta da questo strano ragazzo, Lucas, di cui però non sa se fidarsi o meno e, del resto, lui è un tipo molto misterioso che sembra nascondere tanti segreti.
La storia si basa essenzialmente sul rapporto che nasce e si sviluppa tra i due protagonisti, il loro percorso di avvicinamento e la crescita sia personale che del loro rapporto.
Tra i personaggi secondari spicca la bellissima figura di Erin, l’amica e compagna di stanza di Jacqueline, una ragazza forte e decisa che non si tira mai indietro, sempre coerente e pronta a lottare per quello in cui crede.
Nel libro si parla anche di stupro e violenza, in maniera delicata ma mettendo chiaramente in risalto la necessità di denunciare sempre qualsiasi atto del genere perché, anche se non è di certo facile, far passare in silenzio questi atti serve solo a dar più forza ai delinquenti.
Un libro che è prima di tutto una storia d’amore ma che riesce comunque a tener viva l’attenzione su un problema scottante e, purtroppo, sempre attuale. ( )

Dithering between 3 and 4 stars so I went with 4. Very nicely done YA novel. I'm not real sure it is YA though. I wouldn't necessarily think it was appropriate for the 12 to 14 year old set. The hero and heroine are in college and they do sleep together and it is described. The scenes while descriptive are sweet with a lot of feeling and are not raunchy in any way but I wouldn't want my 12 year old son reading it. Is there a YA17 rating? :-)

Okay so the story is about a couple in college. He saves her from a rape in the first page or so and their relationship evolves from there. This is the guy that every girl wishes she'd found in college. He was sweet and caring, respectful, hot and sexy and smart. And totally into the heroine.

The feel of going to college was captured very well and threw me right back there. Classes and who's in the in crowd and dormitory living and all. I didn't necessarily care for the emphasis on underage drinking and hangovers and such. That wasn't part of my college experience. And I guess I think it's just as dumb now as I did then. I was the girl popping out of bed on Saturday morning shaking my head over all the girls puking and moaning after their fun night out. That might be another reason that this books is not appropriate for the younger readers.

There was good use of modern technology. Some of the story being told through emails and texts.

There was an underlying message of female empowerment that I enjoyed.

Enjoyable and recommended for older teens and up. ( )

What the hell is this?
Connection with the book? NO. None whatsoever.
Cute? No.
Reality check? Low credibility.

Unjustified social hype? Oh yes. TOTALLY.
This isn't even average.

I've read Good Books, believe me.
And this isn't IT.
I rest my case. ( )

I'm seriously left behind in class! Just like Jacqueline, I missed class for two weeks! Not because of a heartbreak, though. Heehee. Anyway, I was admitted in a hospital because of Dengue Fever stage II and I just went to class a while ago. When I asked my professors for a remedial class, I was hoping to get a tutor as cool as Landon. Unfortunately, my professors have yet to read "Easy" since they told me to catch up the lessons by myself! Ugh! Talk about unfair. How come I don't get a one-on-one e-mail tutorial session??? How come there's no Landon Maxwell to save me from my two-week ignorance of Political Thought, Southeast Asian Studies, Ethics, Japanese Studies, Medieval Literature, and Majors! See what I mean? Landon Maxwell could be really helpful right now.

Really, guys. Easy by Tammara Webber is that good. I just have to remind you, though, that it contains mature subjects and themes.

I was surprised by how heavy the plot is. I don't actually support some of Jacqueline and Lucas' decisions, but I'll leave it up to you to decide. Meanwhile, I'll share three lessons I got from the book.
Here it goes!

1. Don't let your past take away your future. It doesn't define who you are today and who you'll be in the future. Live life like there's no second chance!

I got this from both Jacqueline and Lucas. Jacqueline throws away her dream of entering a prestigious music school to follow her boyfriend in a State University, only to find out that he'll break up with her just before their 3rd year anniversary. Jacqueline is devastated and she'll rather fail the class than to sit beside her ex for an hour-long Economics class! Thankfully, her bestfriend/roommate and Econ professor help her to get back to her feet. Her bestfriend starts to encourage her to come to class and her professor gives her a cool and intelligent personal tutor, Landon Maxwell.

The past of Lucas is rather heart-wrenching and tragic to the point that he almost stopped living by wasting himself. His father, a Ph.D. holder and a well-known scholar, shut down his senses and rationality because their horrid past is too much to bear. Thanks to Dr. Heller, Lucas is spared from a dead-life.

2. Do not fear. Step up. Let your voice be heard.

Two weeks after their breakup, Jacqueline is almost raped by a brotherhood rival of his ex. Good thing, Lucas is there to stop him. Knowing the shame that she'll get, Jacqueline decides to keep the incident a secret until it happens again. She escapes the second time around, but not her bestfriend's sorority friend. That's the only time they relayed the rape cases to the authority; however, they'll have to face the consequences of their prolonged silence.

3. Follow your dreams.

That includes your heart's desire. Jacqueline will eventually decide if she'll pursue a degree in music or education. And she'll also have to face her heart. Whom does she love the most? Her ex? Landon Maxwell? or Lucas?

I know you'l enjoy this book, too! Enjoy reading! God bless you more. :)
