A new student review of Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott

MIZZIQ posted a new student review of Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott. See the full review.

The tone of this story is very dramatic and moves quickly. It’s not meant to be a masterpiece, but it effectively completes an emotional roller coaster of a book. It starts off with a very improbable situation but makes it seem completely real to the reader. As much as you want to laugh at Emma’s actions, her feelings always come off as genuine. This was a very quick and enjoyable read that was the perfect cup of tea for a snow day. If I had been looking for a more realistic book than I may have been disappointed, as I had to chuckle at some scenes, if only for the fact that the book took itself too seriously. Somehow this all fit together into a sweet teen romance that almost found its way over to being realistic. Realism however, is not what this book was about, and it worked perfectly.
