A fast read Interesting storyline with a lot going on I learned about the Big Lick step and soring related to Tennessee Walker horses a very cruel practice.I learnedabout Kawasaki disease and it s possible long term effects.This story also included the timely issue of social media and bullying. THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART is Lurlene McDaniel s latest YA contemporary novel The story follows Kenzie as she throws herself into her summer job, putting all her attention on recuperating rescued horses She s hoping this will be enough of a distraction from her heart condition, her problematic relationship with her father, and her sister s recent passing, but Austin, Kenzie s stableman hired to help her, seems intent on dredging all of those feelings out of her, plus someKenzie can THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART is Lurlene McDaniel s latest YA contemporary novel The story follows Kenzie as she throws herself into her summer job, putting all her attention on recuperating rescued horses She s hoping this will be enough of a distraction from her heart condition, her problematic relationship with her father, and her sister s recent passing, but Austin, Kenzie s stableman hired to help her, seems intent on dredging all of those feelings out of her, plus someKenzie can t deny her growing attraction to Austin, but she doesn t know his full story and he s not too willing to share it.What works well in this book is how McDaniel s sets up the air of mystery around Austin She doesn t give him just one secret, but instead leaves room for multiple surprises By cluing the readers in on this fact from the beginning, she seamlessly injects thriller aspects into an otherwise straightforward romance story I couldn t guess Austin s final twist, but I really like where McDaniel takes his character In fact, I would have loved to know about him earlier on, because it would have madesense as to why he needed to keep his distance from Kenzie and it would have heightened the tension between them For a lot of the book, the relationship between Kenzie and Austin feels difficult just for the sake of being difficult Kenzie s dislike of him from the beginning is a little forced and sometimes their dialogue is stilted There is also a weird shifting perspective that happens between the two of them at random intervals A consistent POV would have helped with the pacing and even the suspense With that being said, THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART is completely on brand for McDaniel and will appeal to any of her fans, especially those who have read LOSING GABRIEL or SOMEBODY S BABY McDaniel sets her most recent novel back in Windemere, Tennessee, and it s really fun to see her former characters, Lani, Dawson, and Cole make brief cameos.Review originally published on YA Books Central So I only read the first four pages, but once I read, Not me, little sister I love the big smelly beasts as said by a 20 year old, I closed this book and moved on. Lurlene McDaniel has written an impressive 50 young adult books Most of her books follow characters with chronic and terminal illnesses Some of her previous books include SOMEBODY S BABY and LOSING

chronic and terminal illnesses Some of her previous books include SOMEBODY S BABY and LOSING GABRIEL A Love Story She now lives in Chatanooga, Tennessee, but grew up in Florida Her newest young adult novel is THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART.Kenzie Caine is a Vanderbilt University student with a passion for caring for horses She has dealt with a lot lately her younger sister died tragically, her mother is not dealing with it well and she had a falling out with her father Kenzie is spending her summer rehabilitating horses at the Bellmeade Estates stables and could not be happier about it Kenzie s heart condition means that she has a hired helper for the summer to do the heavy lifting Austin Boyd and Kenzie spend their summer together, but there are some secrets they must learn about each other.THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART is easy to read and focused on the two main characters and the three horses Blue, Sparkle and Mamie they are hoping to rehabilitate Kenzie and Austin are closed off from each other for different reasons, but they slowly become friends as they spend almost all of their time working with these horses together The romance that readers know is coming takes a long time to develop The story includes death, animal abuse and severe health problems without being a heavy story I became very hopeful for all of the characters and horses well being I appreciated just how much I learned about horses in this book The story weaves in animal rights and activism as an essential cause of tension between Kenzie and her family and succeeds in educating readers about those topics.Even though Lurlene McDaniel has been writing for many years and published an extraordinary number of books, this is the first book by her that I have ever read or heard of Her writing style is interesting to me because she doesn t switch to alternate points of view each chapter but often switches between every paragraph, moving fluidly into the minds of both Kenzie and Austin I am not sure if I have ever read a contemporary romance with this style I liked reading from Kenzie s point of view, and Austin s point of view continually brought up a mystery of who he was also working for He lives a sort of a double life, but readers do not know the details of that The book is short, and the characters are frustrating at times, but I was still very much invested in these characters.When I began reading THE GIRL WITH THE BROKEN HEART, I had no idea that the novel was interconnected with a few other books by McDaniel Readers who are invested in the lives of Lani and Ciana are bound to appreciate their cameos in this bookthan I was able to I do not think that reading the other books is necessary to have an enjoyable reading experience The idea of interconnected romance novels reminds me a lot of Miranda Kenneally s Hundred Oaks series, which also happens to be set in Tennessee I loved Kenneally s series and fans of her books will likely also love McDaniel s Bellmeade novels Thank you kidlitexchange and the publisher for a copy of this book to read All thoughts and opinions are my own.This book was wonderful I couldn t put it down I loved the characters
