About THE TATTERED GLOVES
Head down. Don’t look up. Never make eye contact. Those were the words I lived by growing up, the words that protected me in an unsafe home. But words are only letters and eventually even they couldn’t keep his hands off me.
Hoping to leave behind the shattered life of my past, I find myself in a boring, small town, with an aunt I’ve never met and at a school I loathe.
But soon I learn, not everything in this world is as black and white as I’ve determined. Sometimes those we are so quick to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.
And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.
Am I brave? Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?

As a huge fan of J.L. Berg, I was thoroughly excited to read this story. While I enjoyed the story and it kept me interested and intrigued as I turned each page, wanting to learn about Willow's tattered gloves, the last few chapters of the book were a little rushed and slightly disappointing to me. Overall this was a great story and I would recommend it to others.

I really enjoyed this store from J.L Berg, it was heart aching at times. Every page i turned I wanted to find out more able the gloves. Every page sucked me in and I cloud not stop reading. At times i felt that the timeline was fast. It felt as if i read half the book and many thing happen in a week. But that didn't stop me and I would recommend everyone to read this book.
