Silly Feeling by Willowy Whisper {Book Review}


~ Description 

Church camp is one week. Five days. What could possibly go wrong? Nothing. She's just being silly... 
But Hannah can't rid the feeling, and as the week unfolds, she wonders if perhaps it's not such a silly feeling after all.

~ My Review 
Woah... With the title of 'Silly Feeling', this detail-rich story was anything but silly. When I read words like 'church camp' and 'crush', I was expecting a light-hearted story about a couple teenagers. 

But I was wrong. 

This story was deep and heartfelt, moving and fast-paced. Although it's great as a short-story, I think this could've also been a fabulous novel. :) All the characters were fun and felt realistic. Nick and Morgan were my favorites – Nick's story *almost* made me cry. :') Hannah was a great character too, and I'm dying to know if she was right in her thoughts on her 'rescuer'... ;) 

The storyline of the arson did creep me out, to be perfectly honest. But I also found it interesting. I applaud Miss Willowy for tackling that difficult subject and I think she pulled it off really well. Also, I felt like the storyline of Marti and Taylor was a bit unnecessary. But since it didn't conflict with my enjoyment of the rest, I was able to deal with it. ;) 

All in all, this was an exciting story! :D

  1. This sounds like a good book!
    I've never read any books by this author before. Are her books usually pretty good?

    1. It was! :D
      Yes, they really are. I've now read all but one or two of her books/short-stories and enjoyed them all. :) This was probably my least favorite so far, actually. Willowy's 'Hills of Innocence trilogy' (so far only "The Innocent" and "The Letter" are available) is really good western-y mysteries with some romance too. ^_^ They do have some violence, and "The Letter" was pretty graphic and dark in some parts, but they're strongly Christian books as well. :) And then I also liked "This Hostile Land" which I reviewed a few months ago. ;)

      Thanks for commenting, Rebekah!
