    1. Here's my casting for Ambrose^^^** FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ** Absolutely breathtaking! 5 stars!! ★★★★★This book blew me away!! It was beautifully written and deeply moving, with a very powerful message about true beauty, silver linings, and second chances. A poignant and unconventional tale about heroism, courage, love, loss, friendship, and self-acceptance.  Every once in a while a book comes a long that, from the moment I first hear about it, takes over my mind and heart and doesn't [...]


    2. *5+++ Stars!*A touching portrayal of not only finding beauty within, but of finding the beauty within the uglyThere's so much beauty to be found in this story, and not nearly enough words to adequately honor it. This book starts off simple — discreet even — with an undeniable depth and wisdom that slowly sneaks up and consumes you. Its incredible insight is gently suggested, but powerfully received. With an expertly smooth execution, this author makes it all seem entirely effortless as she s [...]


    3. Making Faces by Amy Harmon is one of those books that simply takes over. Reading becomes an experience with books such as this. You become immersed, enthralled, captivated and realize that you are actually feeling with your whole heart. A journey that encompasses your mind and runs with it. Making Faces is a poignant, deeply touching and beautiful tale about where true beauty lies in a person. It’s about real life heroes and what it takes to have insurmountable courage. It’s about friendship [...]


    4. This book had been on my radar for a long time. Let me say that I have never read an Amy Harmon book that I didn't love. So why did I put off reading this one for so long? Well, I honestly just wasn't ready to suffer another heartache at the hands of this incredibly talented author. Her books are always beautiful, but highly emotional. I have to be in the right frame of mind to dive into one of her books, with my tissues handy and ready to shed a few tears.As expected, 'Making Faces' was exactly [...]


    5. Let Me Just . . .The end of this book broke my heart and made me rage. Okay, the very end was a good ending. But before that I just, there was, WAIT . . . So in this book I loved many characters but my favorites were Fern, Bailey and Ambrose. Fern and Bailey are cousins who live next door to each other. Bailey has muscular dystropy and Fern helps him in anything he needs. They are wonderful characters and funny and smart and dorks and I loved them. I wanted to be their best friend. Yes, I say th [...]


    6. More than 5 Stars!Wow just wow! This is one of those special books I wish I could give extra stars to- 5 stars, it just doesn’t seem adequate. When I read a story like this, it’s hard to put it into words how I feel. This book blew me away. One of the very best books I’ve read this year! Fern Taylor and Ambrose Young Fern is that awkward girl. Red hair, freckles, glasses, braces. She loves to read, takes care of her best friend and cousin, Bailey, and remains closed off to most. Those who [...]


    7. 4.5 StarsAmbrose. But imagine him with longer hair!Nobody or Nowhere?Fern: I’d rather be nobody at home than somebody somewhere else. Ambrose: I’d rather be nowhere. Being nobody when you’re expected to be somebody gets old.Fern: How would you know? Have you ever been nobody?Ambrose: Everybody who is somebody becomes nobody the moment they fallFORE OR AFTER?Saw a review for this book and it sounded fantastic so started it yesterdayART OR BEAUTIFUL?Fern… Sweet, Sweet FernThe whole storyli [...]


    8. HEART-BREAKING OR HEART-MENDING?The answer is always the same when it comes to Amy Harmon's books. Both. I am not sure anything I'll say will do justice to Making Faces. It was a contradiction, sunny days swimming in a lake and nights full of nightmares, a song of mourning and hope that stirred a whirlwind of emotions that could be released only through tears, a lament and an ode to beauty. Beauty that can be found within, in caring, and giving and sharing. And honoring those you left behind by [...]


    9. ** AUDIO PRICE DROP **$2.99 (normally $30.00) ➜amzn/1agiVPT 4/10/2015*******************************************************Re-Read (8/5/2015)I actually listened to this one on a couple family car trips. Even though it's been two years since I originally read it I still experienced all the same feels. My teens verdict -> they loved it. Thumbs up all around. *******************************************************P.R.I.C.E.L.E.S.S. I feel inadequate to write a review that will do this story t [...]


    10. Going in to this book, I thought I new what to expect. I new it had a military theme because I'd read the blurb and I thought I new what was going to happen. So imagine my surprise when I read it and discovered that it wasn't at all about what I expected. This is Fern and Ambrose's story, but it's about so much more than that. It's a story about loss, pain and self acceptance.Making Faces sends a messages to the reader. For me the one word that came to mind is Perception. We all have our own per [...]


    11. This isn’t just a military book,this isn’t just a romance book,this isn’t just a new adult book, For me, this is “the book” of 2013! ”Victory is in the battle.”Amy Harmon hit it out of the park with this story. The writing is PHENOMENAL the storyline UNIQUE and the characters UNFORGETTABLE!!This story is brilliantly told in a narrative format of Fern, Baily, Rita, Ambrose and the friends and families of Hannah Lakes, PA.The writing had me continuously highlighting quote after quote [...]


    12. 5 Stars!! “Making Faces" was hands down the most emotional book I have read by this author. Once again Amy Harmon bewitched me with her beautiful story, captivating flawless writing and her fantastic storytelling. I was so hooked from the beginning that I couldn’t put it down. This book was everything I was expected and everything I wanted. “Making Faces” is a touching, though-provoking, beautifully written story about life, love, family, self-acceptance and friendship. Is a story about [...]


    13. If I could give this 10 stars, I would. How do I explain the emotions that this book evoked? Dear Lord.Reading Making Faces felt as if I was in a movie theatre, one that had a three sixty degree high definition screen, where each character was portrayed in bold and vivid colours. I felt the pain, joy, sadness, victory, serenity; emotions that were pulled almost effortlessly. It's difficult to write a review that could even remotely explain how this story decimated my heart.From Fern to Ambrose t [...]


    14. (More than) 5 Stars!!!Talk about an amazing book at its most extreme! This book is a rare gem. You know it's crafted to tear your heart into a million pieces but you still read it anyways 'coz it's beautifully written and heartfelt!"Maybe everyone represents a piece of the puzzle. We all fit together to create this experience we call life. None of us can see the part we play or the way we see are just the tip of the iceberg. And maybe we just don't recognize the blessings that come as a result o [...]


    15. ***2.8 stars***- WARNING, VERY UNPOPULAR OPINION -I'll try to make it short.This book didn't work for me for few reasons, and to be honest, I think I'm being too generous giving 2.8, but I loved Bailey that much.Fern:There was no debt to her character and no growth. From the flashbacks from her childhood to present day, she stayed the same mellow character throughout the whole book. At first, I though she was cute and sweet, but after couple of hundred pages of reading the same thing over and ov [...]


    16. 5 BEAUTIFUL STARS"And so we endure. We have faith that there is purpose. We have hope for things that we can't see. We believe that there are lessons in loss, power in love " and that we have within us the potential for a beauty so magnificent that our bodies can't contain it."Well readers I could not resist going straight into this book, everywhere I turned this book was all over my feed. So like the dutiful addict I am and with several recommendations thrown my way I picked up my kindle, the [...]


    17. Making Faces is the first book I have read by Amy Harmon. Even though I knew what it was going to be about, I wasn’t prepared for the beauty of the words. I wasn’t prepared for the impact the words would have on me. And I wasn’t prepared for the raw emotions this book would make me feel.Fern Taylor is a red headed waif like girl that maybe took a little longer than some to blossom. She had curly crazy red hair, was small and wore braces until her senior year in high school. Her father is a [...]


    18. ➦This is definitely a book that makes you feel and think about things like your own mortality, standards of beauty and dealing with the loss of loved ones. It's not just a love a story, it's a story that will have you experience emotions while you go through the journey with the characters. ➦Fern is a girl who experiences an "ugly girl syndrome." She in not particularly pretty and she is awkward. That, however, does not stop her from loving Ambrose, a beautiful boy and a wrestler at her high [...]


    19. 5 COMPLETELY AMAZING STARS!!! (And only because I can’t give more than 5.) In a town when everyone knows each other and things don’t remain hidden for very long, Fern is love with Ambrose since she was a little kid and he helped her with a spider’s funeral. But Fern never thought that she could be pretty enough for him and so she kept her feelings secret.But then the September 11th came and it changed a small town’s life. Ambrose got to war and when he came back, he was different… he w [...]


    20. Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little [...]


    21. 5 Overcoming Stars!”Victory is in the battle” Wow this book… What can I say other than it just moved me in ways that I didn’t expect… I laughed, I cried, my heart broke for the characters. I as well as most every other girl has felt a case of UGS growing up. I knew a boy who suffered from MD. I was 18 and just starting college when the September 11, 2001 attack happened. I know how that day affected me. I know people who joined the military and went off to war as a result of the attack [...]


    22. 4.5 StarsOverview: “It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that you aren’t ever going to be loved the way you want to be loved.” I knew I would love this book. I don’t know why. This book is so far out of my usual comfort-zone it’s ridiculous. I never read NA. Usually my cynical brain gets bored half-way through a romance. But somehow I gravitated towards this title, and wished for it on Netgalley late one night. So imagine my surprise when my wish was granted—four years after th [...]


    23. WARNING: Do not read this book while flying on a plane sitting next to a judgy, disapproving man who is giving you no elbow space and who has no Kleenex tissues because:1) YOU WILL NEED TISSUES2) YOU WILL NEED SOME SPACE3) JUDGY, DISAPPROVING MEN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ON PLANES (or in public)This book was recommended to me by Jenny the Book Sojourner (booksojourner/) and now I have to add her to my Festivus card list and send her a thank you bouquet of flowers.

    24. This was a really good story! I felt connected in the beginning when they are sitting in the classroom on 9/11 and watching the planes hit the buildings on the TV because that is where I was. The romance was sweet, and the book was sad and cute at the same time. I loved Bailey! Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress/20


    25. 5 Absolutely Beautiful Stars!This is one of the best books I have read in awhile. So what was it about?Family, Friends and FaithWas there a romance? Absolutely, but to me that played a secondary role.FernFern was always the ugly duckling growing up. She has red, curly hair, big teeth, scrawny and freckles. She made up for her looks in personality and smarts. God has given you one face and you make yourself another. ~HamletFern has been in love with Ambrose since she was 10 years old. To Fern, Am [...]


    26. 5 Stars and Beyond * * * * * .Thank you to all of the previous reviewers and a special shout out to Mo for personally recommending this book to me. Books provide a lot of purposes for us, in my opinion. Some educate. Some take us to a place of fantasy with the use of other worldly places and characters; allowing us to experience things not possible in this existence.Some present sweet concepts of love, happiness and family with very little hardship and a perfect ending.All of the types mentioned [...]

    30. Un libro maravilloso sobre la superación y aceptación de lo diferente basado en el cuento de La Bella y la bestia, con el que reí, lloré y me indigné mucho por lo injusta que es la vida con los que menos se lo merecen. Un auténtico canto a la vida por lo que es, un regalo que merece ser vivido en plenitud y no como algo que se da por supuesto. No le doy más estrellas porque no se puede.Es el segundo libro de Amy Harmon que leo, tras The Law of Moses, y puedo decir ya que es una de mis esc [...]
