This review is from: August 3, 2018 By Kay Daniels (ePub Edition-Goodreads)
A Date for Hannah is so relevant and so good, where was Katy Regnery when I was a teenager?
All the self doubts that plague young girls not only dealing with body size, but hair color, skin type, crooked teeth, late puberty, early puberty, skin breakouts, what to wear, who to hang out with, what activities to participate in, what to eat…gah!! It’s amazing any of us make it out of our teenage years without a full time therapist attached to our sides.
This is exactly why books like, A Date for Hannah, are so important for people to read. No one is perfect and both Hannah and Liam are beautifully damaged characters who are in need of the affection they can give to one another. This is the perfect example that in this world there is someone for everyone and you shouldn’t let your past hold you back from a future of something wonderful.
Hannah deals with feelings of self-doubt mostly revolving around her size. The cruelness of boys who used to tease her in youth, now look at her with lust that she’s matured, but also tell her that no one will ever love her because she’s fat. When she meets Liam, who has his own past he’d rather leave there, she doesn’t believe him that he could like her for her, but as the night wears on and Liam breaks down her defences she begins to believe him. However, when she learns that Liam may have been sent to be her date under false pretenses, the hurtful, shameful feelings of Hannah’s past resurface and she’s not sure what was real and what was an act.
A Date for Hannah is short in the terms of adult reading, but when I remember this falls under young adult, the length is perfect. Whether you are an adult or young adult reading this story I highly recommend it.
