TITLE: Be The Girl
AUTHOR: K.A. Tucker
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: January 21st, 2019

From the national bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths series and The Simple Wild comes a poignant story about a girl trying to change her future while evading her past.

Almost sixteen-year-old Aria Jones is starting over. New postal code, new last name, new rules. But she doesn’t mind, because it means she can leave her painful regrets behind. In the bustling town of Eastmonte, she can become someone else. Someone better.
With the Hartford family living next door, it seems she will succeed. Sure, Cassie Hartford may be the epitome of social awkwardness thanks to her autism, but she also offers an innocent and sincere friendship that Aria learns to appreciate. And Cassie’s older brother, Emmett—a popular Junior A hockey player with a bright future—well … Aria wishes that friendship could lead to something more. If he didn’t already have a girlfriend, maybe it would.
But Aria soon finds herself in a dicey moral predicament that could derail her attempt at a fresh start. It is her loyalty to Cassie and her growing crush on Emmett that leads her to make a risky move, one that earns her a vindictive enemy who is determined to splinter her happy new world.

My Review

Is a full length, standalone ‘romance’ novel by author ‘K.A. Tucker’

A heartbreaking tale of redemption. Aria will be starting her new school in grade eleven, a school where she doesn’t know a soul, no one knows her or what horrors she’s left behind. 

A new identity, a new beginning, A new start. Finally a time to leave all her memories buried in the past. 

They arrive in a town called Eastmonte where she and her mother will be living with her eighty year old uncle, she can become someone else. Where she strives to become someone better.

It doesn’t take long for the neighbours next door to introduce themselves, Cassie whom has autism, and her gorgeous brother Emmett who is in grade twelve. One of the popular hockey players at the school who has a bright successful future ahead of him.

As we watch Aria as the new girl navigating her new life, you can’t help but applaud her maturity as she tries not to stoop to the bullying that occurs around her even though we see her inwardly struggling when she finds herself in a similar situation that changed her life forever back at her old high school. 

I think Carrie had a positive impact on Ari, seeing how she was getting bullied maybe was the catalyst to making her own her past mistakes, it was liberating seeing the change occur in Aria, she turned a negative into a positive. 

There were so many positives I can take from this book, so many heartfelt moments, so many feels when it came to Cassie’s family and how they dealt with an autistic teenager. I loved Cassie, her highs and lows, her way of thinking. Her happy disposition. 

I applaud K.A. Tucker for taking on this sensitive subject, she did true justice to the ugly side of bullying, she tackled this beautifully.
