Can I just say this is the sweetest book I have read in awhile. Making faces follows a group of kids from their senior year to a few years after. There are two sides to this story...Fern the nerdy ugly girl who blossoms after high school and Ambrose, the Hercules of the school wrestling team. I know, I know, it seems like this is the same ole story of the hunk who finally sees beyond the surface, but if that is what you think you'd be wrong. You see Amy Harmon throws us a game changer by making the time of this book 9/11. This throws the world into chaos and Ambrose convinces his friends to enlist with him after graduation. I don't want to spoil anything in this story but the personal growth of the characters, their insightfulness, and deep true love of their friends was heart wrenching. This book is much more than 5 stars.
