The Noah Confessions by Barbara Hall

Lynnie Russo turns sixteen and expects a car. This is not out of the ordinary--every girl who turns sixteen at her school in Los Angeles gets a car. Instead, Lynnie gets an old charm bracelet and a letter written to a boy named Noah by her mother. When Lynnie's mother passed away years ago, her relationship with her father deteriorated. Now, as her father gives her a gift she is not so willing to accept, Lynnie is thrown on a roller coaster ride of the past. The Noah Confessions is a story about finding yourself in the tiniest details of life.

The Noah Confessions is now one of my favorite books. The novel is a suspenseful tale of Lynnie Russo and Catherine Pittman. The intricacies of each story is fascinating and has the reader desperately reading. The Noah Confessions is a wonderful novel--I know I am not giving it justice by throwing words such as "suspenseful" and "wonderful" but trust me--you don't want to miss out on this story. I fell in love with every character. Barbara Hall wrote a fascinating story about understanding your past--and understanding yourself.
