Michelle Pearce is a 17 year old girl with a life that is out of the ordinary. She has a "loving" mother and an okay paying job. Her grades are (from her point of view) alright, but her counselor says different. Everything in Michelle's life is average until a tall, poor (but handsome) man walks through the door of her job. From that day on Michelle's life goes on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Things may turn out for the better, but then again, they may not.
The book "Paper Hearts" by S.R. Savell was very different from a lot of stories that I have read. Although I did get lost and confused at some parts, I was really intrigued by the train of events that happened in this book. I sincerely love the main character, but she confused me a little. I didn't know if she was all around mad or just in a depressed state of mind. Same goes with Nathaniel. I understood his emotions but at the end of the story his character took a total turn for the worst. I don't understand why he beat Peter. Did something happen before that and I just happened to miss it or did Peter say something to insult Michelle? I don't know, but like I said it was a fantastic story but could use a little more re-reading.
