When Kyle Dayton was seventeen, he lost his heart to Addison Parks.

It was easy to do. After spending countless summers of boredom with his grandmother at Buhl Lake, Kyle’s world turned upside down the minute Addison appeared. She was unlike any girl he had ever met; she was confident, out-going, and honest. She was beautiful inside and out, and she accepted Kyle for who he was ~ a young man without direction. They shared an amazing summer and, despite living miles apart, Kyle felt sure they had a future.

Until she vanished without a trace.

Where did she go? How could she disappear without saying a word? Was everything between them a lie? Unable to answer his own questions, Kyle had no choice other than to bury his memories and move on with his life. Eight years later, his hard work to forget is threatened when he is forced to return to Buhl Lake. Faced with reminders of Addison, Kyle wonders if he will ever discover the truth.

Little does he know it is about to be revealed.

Sparrow is the story of finding love, losing it, and the uncertain journey to reclaiming it again.

*Due to language and suggestive scenes, Sparrow is recommended for ages 17+

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***

Author Sara Mack dazzles the readers in this tragic love story that follows a path so unlike any that the reader could think of.  The idea of Kyle and Addison seems like a match made in heaven and it is until the unthinkable happens…the reader is sucked into the lives of Kyle and Addison (Sparrow) and we meet them as teens at the lake – the path that the author takes from this point is one that the reader couldn’t begin to predict.  The path is nothing but twists, turns, loops, curves and roughness that never gives the reader a chance to catch their breath.

Kyle spends his summers at his grandmothers, which is usually very boring, until the summer he sets his sights on Addison….fast forward a year and they finally talk to each other….fast forward from there and Addison is gone completely from his life with no clue where, why or how it happened. Kyle is the ultimate true love – never once does his love for her waver and eventually this pays off – but is it for the best?  Addison has moved on from a tragedy but has she truly moved on in her heart?  These questions and more are what will keep the reader zooming through the pages of this story trying to find the answers that they desperately seek.

This is a can’t miss, must read for all readers!  I loved the story, the style of writing and the characters and am looking forward to reading more books by this author!  Check this book out – you won’t be sorry.
