Review Rating: 5/5 stars
I think that my heart is very much in love with Amy Harmon’s books. The Bird and The Sword will always be my first and favorite Amy Harmon read, but Making Faces will always be the one that touched me the most. Sure, there are no fantasies in this book, but the reality was portrayed so well that it was not impossible not to shed a single tear.
This book revolves around the life of a girl who wasn’t the prettiest on the outside, and a boy who was handsome in both the inside and the outside. This is a love story of how a beautiful person can always love someone just from the inside. It is a story not just about romance, but also about friendship, family, loss, hope and faith. This is a story that will give you all kinds of feels, butterflies and rainbows. This story is not light, and it isn’t very heavy. But the reality it wants to tell you makes you wonder how much you might have been taking your life for granted. This book doesn’t have a mouth, but it does speak to you, and it tells you to become a better version of yourself.
Reading it would not be the best way to go on with this book because you have to go deeper than reading. There is a whole lot of meaning in this book. Not just in terms of ugliness or beauty, but also second chances.
