I'm pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for Hannah Both Ways by Rosie Greenway!  This tour was coordinated by Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours.  Check out the exciting book and giveaway details below!!


Hannah Both Ways by Rosie Greenway
Release Date: November 17, 2015
Publisher: Rebelight Publishing, Inc.
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

A devastating Twitter prank yanks Hannah out of the popular crowd and turns her into the high school’s best bad joke. Determined to finish the year and graduate, Hannah must keep the humiliating details from her impulsive mother—who just might pack up their belongings and move. Again.

Hannah hovers below the radar by submersing herself in a new routine. Post-it notes, Dewey Decimal numbers and carefully planned trips to the library are her refuge. That is, until a persistent new student invades her space. Lucas has complete disregard for Hannah’s cynicism and snark, and he seems to know the bullies who targeted her. Can Hannah trust him, or is he part of another ploy to torment her?

I wasn't sure what to expect from this story.  Hannah has suffered through a very believable mistake where something is posted to Twitter that makes an enormous impact on her life.  This is the sort of thing that could, and probably does, happen to teens all the time.  It's kind of scary to think about.  As a result of this, she's been bullied, both in a cyber aspect and in person as well.  In order to cope, she's completely isolated herself.  She doesn't even have parents to turn to, as she has only a mother, and one who isn't the best role model out there, and one who thinks moving from place to place and running from problems is the best method for dealing with things.  So Hannah gets this honestly.  It didin't escape my irony scope that Hannah's method for dealing with her circumstances is to withdraw, which is also a form of running isn't it.

I thought Hannah was a very well-crafted character.  She is one I felt very badly and strongly for.  She has isolated herself entirely at school by avoiding people, classes, and other things, eating her lunch in the library, and being generally unapproachable.  Until a new guy comes along.  One that I loved because he was sweet and patient, and slowly but surely tore down Hannah's walls.

The romance was a very nice, slow progression which was gratifying and satisfying at the same time. The story was poignantly and beautifully written, and had some wonderful themes and messages in it. I have to applaud the author for taking on some of these themes and handling them so well.  A very good read.
