How to Build a Heart Review

Title: How to Build a Heart 
Author: Maria Padian
Rating: 5 stars
This book was really good! I enjoyed the story of a half Puerto Rican finding her confidence and her true self also has a strong relationship with her best friend. Izzy, the main character, develops a lot because she was scared that her rich private school friends will find out that her family (the dad passed away) is poor and is living in a trailer park. She also had a hard time telling her background story to her boyfriend and finding her true home. Izzy hides from the world until she meets the right people and comes out to find her true self.

This story shows how people hide from others and don’t share their personal stories because they would feel judged. Izzy did have a strong connection with her best friend and at the end with her family from her dad’s side. Izzy made some new friends along the way of her journey and also started to trust others with her life.

What I really enjoyed about this book is the way the author wrote it. She did an amazing job making the story come to life inside my hand and made it all an emotional joyride. I did love the way the author added snip bits of Izzy’s life from the past and the writing overall. The author also put in some Spanish phrases which were cool in my opinion because it brings out that Puerto Rican side of Izzy. There was nothing I hated about this book.
