How did I get it?:
I bought it!
Being fourteen is a minefield: with fashion dilemmas, teacher trauma, embarrassing parents and boy drama, Faith is just hoping to make it through Year Ten without too many disasters. But when she and her best friend Megs sign up to take part in an inter-school choir with the local boys comprehensive, Faith’s life gets even more complicated… just how is she supposed to concentrate on becoming the next Cheryl Cole when she’s trying to understand how teenage boys’ minds work?
This book won my Luna’s Picks reader choice this month. I was excited to get to it, because so many bloggers seem to be loving it. I was pleased it won the picks! I thought Have A Little Faith was a great piece of teenage fiction. It’s definitely a book for those that enjoy reading teenage fiction. If you’re not into that genre, then I don’t think this book would particularly work for you. It did, to me, feel very young. But I found myself enjoying Faith’s antics. She brightened up my day. Have A Little Faith is a quick, easy and funny read.
I have to admit, this book usually wouldn’t be my sort of thing, but because it was championed so much I was intrigued enough to buy a copy. It just took Luna’s Picks to push it further up my TBR pile. Have A Little Faith is Faith’s diary of what’s going on in her life. She has some funny antics with teachers, friends and guys. I loved Faith’s voice. I think it really came across wonderfully. She was full of cheekiness and sassiness without being incredibly nasty.
The book may be full of teenage angst, cheese and cliché, but that didn’t affect the story for me. Instead, it made me smile and reminiscence about my school days. I really think that this book is a perfect read for teenagers and adults looking for some nostalgia from their school days!
Would I recommend it?:
Yes! – for fans of teenage fiction/teenagers I think it’s a brilliant read.
