Georgia knows what it means to keep secrets. She knows how to ignore things. She knows that some things are better left unsaid. …Or are they?
When Georgia and her best friend, Riley, travel along with nine other suburban Pennsylvania kids to Anapra, a squatters’ village in the heat-flattened border city of Juarez, Mexico, secrets seem to percolate and threaten both a friendship and a life. Certainties unravel. Reality changes. And Georgia is left to figure out who she is outside the world she’s always known.
Beth Kephart paints a world filled with emotion, longing, and the hot Mexican sun.
The Heart is Not a Size was an alright read. It wasn’t amazing or anything, but still worth your time.
I loved the idea behind the plot. It was very thought provoking, but the issue I had was that I kept getting bored. None of the scenes really grabbed me and hooked me in. I loved Kephart’s writing and how accurate all the descriptions were. I really enjoyed the ending.
I really enjoyed the characters. Kephart did a wonderful job in writing a wide range of characters who were all very well written. I really liked Riley as a character.
The Heart is Not a Size is a read I would definately try! It’s got a great idea and good characters. It’s not the most captivating read in the world, but still very good!
