Sophomore year broke Clementine Williams’ heart. She fell for her best friend’s boyfriend and long story short: he’s excused, but Clem is vilified and she heads into summer with zero social life. Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but floating away sounds pretty good right now. Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?

Clementine didn't finish off Sophomore year on a good note. Now she’s caught in this awkward situation of almost cheating with her best friend’s boyfriend. The story is told in alternating chapters that tell the story of how she broke her heart and how she healed it. Clementine started off with a moody attitude, but slowly grew on me with her personality. She was definitely someone I could see myself becoming friends with.

The whole family aspect of the book was one of my favorites. They were this fun, close family that was easy to relate to. Olive, Clementine’s sister, was such a fun person to read about. She’s always honest, sometimes even brutally honest, that only result in interesting conversations.

What is another one of my favorite things? Nice guys. Yupp. NICE GUYS. And there just happens to be one named James. I liked him from the moment he showed up. He’s just this all around great, funny, and artistic guy. Clementine literally bumped into James during one of her stops and ever since then the two slowly got to know each other.

This book was just full of awesome. I absolutely adored every moment of Unbreak My Heart. Not only did I love the characters and the beautiful setting, but I also loved Melissa’s writing style. It was easy to get lost in the pages and fall in love right along with Clementine.

Overall: 4 out of 5
