Product description

Product Description

A powerful read that eloquently brings to light a sensitive and difficult subject matter. Books and Boys Book Blog

Being the subject of the hushed whispers from the acid tongues of her peers was something Belle Morgan had become accustomed to. That didn’t mean each barb didn’t scar her deeply. It did.

Xander Duke wasn’t planning on talking to the girl he found sitting by herself in the library that lunchtime. But something about her drew him right in and he couldn’t stop himself from wanting to find out all about her.

As Belle learns to trust Xander, he refrains from exposing a secret that will tear her scarred heart wide open. When the truth comes out, will he be able to piece Belle back together again?

Full length, standalone novel that deals with sensitive subject matters such as suicide and bullying.

Well. This story broke my heart. What a cruel world we live in. My heart bled for Belle. I wouldn't wish her experiences on anyone. It's a harsh lesson to learn. Bullying is vile, whether it's verbal or physical. Belle suffered from verbal abuse after her Dad lost his business 4 years previously. Belle's parents are positively selfish and make my blood boil. They have just used Belle as a means of 'keeping up appearances,'
A way to make others see them as being 'perfect'. They don't abuse her. She just isn't a significant person in their lives. Too wrapped up in their own personal life.
As I said, blood boiling.
Belle meets Xander in the library on her lunch break one day. This is the start of a beautiful friendship/relationship.
He has a secret to tell Belle that is staggering.
This story was well written. I feel that the author must have had some sort of experience of this bullying and it broke my heart.
I liked the ending when justice was served and how it brought Belles parents together and united them in the cause to stop bullying and getting justice for Belles treatment.
My eyes leaked.

WOW just WOW..... I've read a lot of Kasey Millstead's other books and this book is so totally different to everyone of them... We meet Belle Morgan who is still in school.... she's been copping a terrible time from the other students at her school.... they are just plain rude with things they say to her..... she has no friends at school at all...... that is until she meets Xander Duke at the Library while having lunch one day...... They are drawn together and start spending a lot of time together..... Belle doesn't tell Xander about the way the other student's treat her .... and Xander, who also has a secret of his own, doesn't let Belle in on that either........ this story was a very emotional read..... there are several twists and turns that happen during the book, that you don't see coming.... My warning... Keep the Tissues Handy...... this is such a beautiful story........

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful 6 May 2016
By Lauren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story is so hauntingly beautiful and powerful on such a complex subject of bullying. It will tear your heart out and leave you raw. Poor Belle is bullied relentlessly at school and is all but invisible to her parents at home. I loved Belle and her strength, even when she thought she had none. I also loved Xander for all he does for Belle. I have no idea how I kept going with the story while tears flowed continuously but I just couldn’t stop reading, I highly recommend this novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disliked Guess I'm the rare reviewer 15 May 2016
By Ratatosk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Thought this was the typical ya bullying romance, but shortly in to the book realized the boy's secret. Won't refer to him as the H because, well just because. Author took a serious topic and instead of giving advice on dealing with such situations, imo she glamorized the decision of the MC. Book really left me feeling sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potent must read book of 2016 10 May 2016
By ConfessionsFR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It hard to review as a pure contemporary romance as things are so innocent one level but on the other level it deals with some extremely sensititve issues so it makes sense to classify it more then just a YA novel. If anything is upper Ya and some of Millstead finest works

This was nothing like I ever expected, this is so raw and different from her other books of a similar nature. Our protagonist eighteen year old Belle Morgan life is hell. She comes from a rich dysfunctional family with a mother who rather never had her and cares more about her social standing and a father who is a workaholic and has nothing common with her. He sees her as enhancement to his image .

However that is isn’t the worst of things. Her parents may have tinted rose glasses with it comes to their lives and believe everything is fine with their daughter but it isn’t . As adding to her hell is school, where rumours a dime a dozen, making Belle the school pariah for no good reason.

As she far from what those mean girls whisper but what the use, people aren’t going to believe her. So she sticks her head in the sand and tries not let things get at her but they are

Slow chipping away at her, each barb, more damaging then last one, there is no hope. Until Xander walks into her life and provides light.

Xander is the mysterious hottie who provides Belle a escape, slowly worming his way into her life, by having stolen moments in the library which make things more bearable. There was someone on her side.

But was he good to be true?

Hummingbird goes for the guts. It never backs away. Belle’s life is played out in front of us as she deals with the daily life she never asked for. Millstead weaves a story that speaks for those souls. A story that of what not just fictional reality but real reality. How many people around the world deal with every day.

Questions that many people have questioned themselves, how, why and what has passed their lips as deal with a life that is hell to them. Millstead latest novel has jumped to my favourite of her’s , it thought provoking , speaks to the heart and will surprise you.
