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?
Kasey Millstead lives a quiet life in country New South Wales, Australia, with her husband and their four young children. She enjoys baking, singing (ridiculously out of tune) & spending time with friends and family. Kasey has always harboured a deep love for reading and writing, and she is now lucky enough to be living her dream of being an Author.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“I just want it to be over “the words of a teen struggling with must teens also silently suffer through bullying. Belle suffered in silence as do many and her pain and suffering was heartbreaking. I’m not always a big fan of Young Adult romances but this story will definitely touch you. I can’t say this book was an easy read for me because it wasn’t it resonated to me because sometime the pain is easy to hide especially when it seems you are in it alone. This book has one big twist that I really did not see coming but it did add a whole new element to the story.
Belle had Xander who came to her when she was at her lowest and who shared her pained when no one else seemed to care. Belle begin bullied is something most teens go through alone and nothing is done until it is too late. This was a good story that will touched even the coldest of hearts. I can’t say I loved all of it but I can say that it is worth reading because it gives you a view in to the bullied teenager mind.
Hummingbird will give you a lot to think about as you read it because nobody really thinks about the consequences until it is too late. What makes us different is not a bad thing and this story will have you questing everything you know about bullying. Ms. Millstead did an awesome job with this book and I hope those who read this really take the time to think about the theme of this book and hopefully if they have a teen going through this they recognize the signs.
