Goodreads Summary: "As children, Jennifer Harris and Cameron Quick were both social outcasts. They were also one another's only friend. So when Cameron disappears without warning, Jennifer thinks she's lost the only person who will ever understand her. Now in high school, Jennifer has been transformed. Known as Jenna, she's 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 are both confronted with memories of their shared past and the drastically different paths their lives have taken.
From the National Book Award nominated author of Story of a Girl, Sweethearts is a story about the power of memory, the bond of friendship, and the quiet resilience of our childhood hearts."
- I really liked Sara Zarr's Once Was Lost, and was so excited when I got this one- knowing that it would be just as good, or even better.
- I loved the whole story that Jenna had before her change, the trust that she had in Cameron was unstoppable, and it definitely created something for readers- something that we cannot even explain, it's too gorgeous.
- Jenna was a good character- not the best, but I liked her story. She seemed a little too pissed off at life, and I didn't really like that, but she was okay.
- Ethan was adorable and I had a soft side to him, he never did anything to Jenna, Jenna just got too distracted with her long-lost love, that's all. I definitely see him with Steph.
- Cameron was okay, he had that whole bad boy thing going on, and was willing to take risks.
