Yearning Young (Burning Britely Book 2) by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Karyn Taylor

Yearning Young (Burning Britely #2)Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yearning Young is the 2nd book in the amazing, Young Adult, coming-of-age, Burning Britely series by Deidre Huesmann. I had really enjoyed the 1st book, but this second book was, in my opinion, much better than the first book.
In book 1 we are given the groundwork in the growing friendship between Jeff and Braeden. Now in book 2 (which is told from Braeden’s POV) Jeff and Braeden are in a relationship.
From the outside, Braeden has an ideal life…rich family, top track performer, good looks. We are given an insight in book 1 that Braeden’s life isn’t all rosy but in this book we get to see the harsh, heart-breaking reality that is Braeden’s home life. Add this to Braeden’s worries about his sexuality, Braeden is a very mixed up young man with so much going on.
This book has so much emotion and angst, I will have you gripped from the very beginning. Like most teenage boys Braeden can be a bit of a pain at times, but you can’t help but be drawn to him and be rooting for him as he goes through so much adversity.
If you like reading the YA genre then this is a must read, however, make sure you read the first book Burning Britely before this one to get the full impact of this fabulous story.
