As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also each other’s only friend. so when Cameron disappeared without warning. Jennifer thought she’d lost the one person who could ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she is popular, happy, and dating - everything “Jennifer” couldn’t be. But she still can’t shake the memory of her long-lost friend.

When Cameron suddenly reappears, they both are confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken.

I don't know what I was expecting from Sweethearts but it definitely wasn't what I got.

It was sad and sweet and everything else in between. I don't really know what to say about it. Parts of it made me want to stop reading because it was uncomfortable but I couldn't. Sara Zarr is an amazing author to be able to create an atmosphere like that and I can't wait to read more of her writing in the future.
