The story Sarah Smiles by Sean-Paul Thomas is a YA/Coming of age book. It is a story that hooked me in from the beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I had finished the last page. This is a book that takes you on a journey with the characters and I couldn’t help but grow to care about many of them with each chapter that I read. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Liam and Sarah. Liam is a teenager who has just started another school. It is here that he meets Michael, the school bully. Sarah is a young girl who seems to have spellbound Liam. He finds himself calling her a friend. Liam and Sarah’s days are filled with different adventures. Many are positive, others have them confiding in each other their fears. What does the future hold for both Liam and Sarah? How long will their adventures last? Read this book to find out. This was a story that has heartbreaking moments and others when you want to cheer for Liam and Sarah. The situations that they deal with while living in an adult world will have you feeling empathy for them. There are also other characters that you are introduced to and some are helpful, while others only think about themselves. This is a book that I enjoyed reading and one that touched my heart. I highly recommend reading it.
