Hot sun. Blue waves. New romances. Old secrets.Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes a sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence. Being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friends (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don't hold grudges forever. Do they? Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago—including Hallie and her dreamy brother, Josh—to believe she's someone else. As though the summer wasn't complicated enough already. Filled with summer sun, boys, and friendships gone sour, Katie Finn's first novel in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series sizzles and delights.
3 of 5 stars (Please read my rating system further below).
As a huge fan of Morgan Matson's books, I knew that I had to read her books as Katie Finn, and I knew that I had to read them fast. Because of my love for Morgan Matson, I think I went into Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend with too high of expecations. My expectations were definitely let down, and I was disappointed that I didn't love Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend as much as I loved Morgan Matson's other books. That being said, Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend is not a bad book at all. It was cute and kept you at the edge of your seat. I was entertained almost the entire time. I guess I didn't love it because I'm used to expecting and loving such stellar books and writing from Morgan Matson. Because of the huge cliffhanger at the end of the book, I will definitely be reading the next book. I need to know what happens to Gema and Hallie!
My rating system: (I do use half stars.)5 - I do not use the 5 star. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect.
4 - I loved it! There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. (A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book.)
3 - I enjoyed the book, but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less.
2 - I finished the book, but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it.
1 - I could not finish the book, and I probably did not finish it....
