Little Do We Know Reviews
I think I'm going to keep this one brief as I don't feel completely unbiased in my review here. I'm going to list below the pros and cons I found in this novel and let you decide for yourself if it seems like the book for you.
-I absolutely love the portrayal of growth and self thought portrayed here. One of the plots involves a teenage girl who is raised in a christian home with a pastor for a father, and along the way she wrestles with her faith and comes to terms with whether it ...more
This story resonated with me more than it might have if my own son didn’t have an eerily similar experience as Luke and very recently too! (Eerily almost identical) So this made reading the book so much more personal to me. Any parent would most likely feel the same.
“Little Do We Know” is one of those rare YA books that even every adult should read. Luke suffered a freak accident that changed his life forever; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Many adults will never experience what Luke ...more

LITTLE DO WE KNOW is another solid YA contemporary from Tamara Ireland Stone. It did take me longer than I would have liked to warm up to the two POV characters.

Spring 2017? As in a whole year from now? *whimpers*
My first book by this author is not a disappointment. I really enjoyed it, had trouble putting it down as I was reading. There was a lot of great character interaction in this story. I had a tiny inkling what might have happened to cause the rift between Hannah and Emory, although really, it was pretty much downplayed because of how the talk with Hannah and her dad sounded. I couldn't quite imagine what Hannah would have whispered in Luke's ear that could have caused him to think what he did, un ...more
Hannah and Emory are best friends and next door neighbors. For years they have been inseparable until one day they have a major falling out, but readers don't know the details.

She has been brought up to be very religious, but she is starting to question things now, especially after her blow up with Emory. L ...more
