Review: Till It Stops Beating


Author: Hannah R. Goodman.
Genre: Young Adult.
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«đŸ« 

Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman has always coped with anxiety by immersing herself into the latest self-help book. Then her grandmother is diagnosed with cancer, and she spirals so far downward that she almost risks losing everything she holds dear.
From applying to college to solving the mystery of why she detests jelly doughnuts to writing a novel for her senior project and reconnecting with an old flame (or two), the ever-mounting stress leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers what she needs in order to really live.

If your heart has ever hurt from beating widely, whether from anxiety or love, this book is the one to read.

The cover looks sweet and delicious, but it's not really interesting. 

Till It Stops Beating is a beautiful story with a somewhat unbelievable end. It was a quick and easy read; with some really funny moments to spice it up. 

Maddie's character was believable, but the romantic parts of her story seemed too good to be true. It had the kind of ending you'd expect in a fairy tale, not a young adult novel. All the same, it was a good ending, for a change.

All in all, Till It Stops Beating was honest, insightful and full of hope, love and jelly doughnuts!
