BOOK: HOW I FLY by Anne Eliot

Over six months after an accident that broke her legs as well as removed her boyfriend from her life—because Cam Campbell left town and dumped her—high school senior, Ellen Foster, wants to move past her broken heart. She’s off to attend a summer photography workshop at a real university along with her best friends. Ellen’s determined to find a new love—or at least a summer boyfriend. In the dorm, she meets Harrison Shaw. He’s a handsome photography student, a charmer who likes her, and a perfect way to forget her past.

One, I used to think how one accident can totally ruin her whole life. I didn’t like the book as much. I was only drawn to it because the protagonists are photographers.

 ·         Harrison Shaw is such a charmer.

·         I wish I could have a guy best friend that takes care of me the way Patrick is to Ellen.

Some of the lines from the book:

 ·         Any and every love is simply going to eventually be over. So what’s the point if the end of love comes with so much pain? It can’t be good or healthy thing to pursue ever again.

·         Everyone plays until the game turns serious. Otherwise, how would anyone ever know what they wanted? Maybe planning is the only way to find out.

·         His wink is shameless and his grin is suddenly layered with promises that make my already hot cheeks go twice as hot.

·         My thoughts are overtaken with memories of her sparkling dark eyes smiling up at me, and I’m not quite certain how to handle the heaviness that settles into my heart because of how bad it hurts to miss her again.

·         His warm brown eyes travel over me in this way that makes me feel as though I’m the only girl in the whole world.

·         Throat chokes with hundreds of tiny-wow butterflies.

·         His gaze is going slowly over my face like some sort of caress that captures my gaze right back until I can’t look away.

·         Scars – they tell you that you’ve been through something. They’re forever ugly but not all crippling. They’re simply something you’ve got to work around and deal with so you can move forward, just like everything else in life.

·         Sometimes, the best way to right a wrong is to simply put everything back in its place.

·         I lay my heart at that girl’s feet.

·         Girl kills me. Kills me, every damn day. Can’t she see how hard I’m working for her? God help me.

·         He’s a heart stopper.

·         I’m raw… exposed… and completely at her mercy.

·         It’s impossible to speak when your heart has been completely removed.
