  7. Count On Me Review I have been waiting to read this book for a long time before it was even published I am not disappointed at all from the long wait It was everything I was expecting, no, it was even Through it all I kept seeing things that reminded me of my younger brother, who is autistic, and every time I heard an insult to Isabelle I could feel myself going into a rage I also saw much of myself in Kayden Truthfully if someone tried to mess with my brother I d kick the crap out of them with [...]

  9. Count On Me es el primer libro de la serie con el mismo nombre de Melyssa Winchester, ademas de mi primera experiencia leyendo algo de la autora.Tambien es el primer libro que leo que trata un tema tan delicado como el autismo, lo curioso es que hasta este libro pensaba que tenia una muy buena idea de lo que significaba tener autismo, pero si algo nos demuestra Count On Me es lo equivocada que esta la sociedad respecto a esta enfermedad.Quede muy satisfecha con la forma que tiene la autora de tr [...]


  10. This book hit close to home for me, and I m glad I read it It moved me, and I think the thing I took away with the most is acceptance not just in others, but in ourselves Isabelle and Kayden both had to take that journey in similar ways and also in different ways I loved Isabelle from the very beginning And was not a fan of Kayden s But watching him grow into the person who he wanted to be touched my heart And the first time Isabelle smiled was a beautiful moment I smiled right along with her An [...]


  11. Why isn t this book famous It was such a great and lovely read for me I think it is really well written and that storyline Amazing and so different, and unique, from what I ve read before I just loved it and I believe I m going to be re reading this for many years and would recommend it to everyone Best book I read this year Thanks for the recommendation to Mandy I wouldn t have known about this if it weren t for her Will try to review this soon, but seriously have nothing but good things to sa [...]


  12. It took like 8 hrs off an on but finally finished this I had an advantage with this book because I got to see it before it became the final product it is now I didn t speak about it or review it then in the ARC stage or when I beta read it because I knew in the end it would change and my opinion would change with it I was right.This is not the same book I read in the beginning It s stronger, better and if you don t listen to anything I say after this, remember these words before you read it It w [...]


  13. Read of my reviews at My Full Bookshelf ReviewsI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Count On Me had an intriguing premise, and I was in the mood for a serious sort of contemporary, so I immediately picked up this book once I had it downloaded on my kindle As I progressed, I began to realize that this book would not be something I enjoyed There were multiple problems that I had with the book, and it just was not a good matchup for me at all First off, I didn t th [...]


  14. So I m like pretty much in love with anything that this author writes but this book is different I can t like fan girl out with this one even though theres like this little part of me that sort of wants to because of Kayden Walker I really wasnt expecting this kind of book when I got it I mean I knew what it was about but theres to it than just what the whole blurb thing says You need to read this book because what your told doesnt cover whats between the pages like at all theres a strong empha [...]


  15. DNF at 21%There was a scene where the hero started bullying a disabled boy to protect the heroine.but for me that was very cruel thing to do to another human being There are no excused for Why For starters the boy was innocent and should never be bullied Second, the hero was bullied himself for years knowing what pain and depression is, but yet he allowed the same bullying to be inflicted by him for years to completely innocent people I cannot romanticised that


  16. Tears, tears and tearsSo heartbreaking, but real Truly raw and believable And, what teenager Isabelle Reagan goes through is ultimately sad and unfortunate Constantly abused by a group of nasty bullies, both girls and guys, she wants so desperately to just be normal But, she s not On a daily basis she deals with the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder She s a young sweet girl that enjoys numbers So, math is her specialty But because of her lack of speech, the group of bullies often call her n [...]


  17. This is one of my favorite books I ve read this year so far It deals with a very sensitive subject, than one actually, and the author does a fantastic job handling these issues in this book.I think most people, myself included, thought that if someone is autistic, they re like Dustin Hoffman s character in Rain Manwhere they are basically unable to communicate or behave normally in any way Apparently there are degrees to autism However, that does not mean that it is easy, if you happen to have [...]

  20. DNF at 40% I know I m in a minority here A lot of readers really liked this book I tried, but this story about the bullying that an autistic high school student endured just didn t ring true to me A childhood friend who comes to her defense, but was one of the biggest bullies himself at the school, kind of disgusted me His attempt at saving her from other students by actually actively participating in humiliating behavior toward another autistic student really left me hating him to a point that [...]


  21. TERMIN ESTE GRAN, GRAN LIBRO La historia es una de las m s delicadas que he le do, a pesar de ser YA.Melyssa, lo aborda sin ser superficial, ni dramatismos agregados para causar golpes bajos.Deber a ser lectura obligada en las escuelas.Si lo que esperan, son escenas hot Pues no, este no es su libro.Kayden es un adolescente, que tiene una vida dura en su casa l asiste a un colegio, l hostiga a sus compa eros l se enamora, pero de la persona menos pensada.Belle es autista de los niveles m s altos [...]

  23. 6 if possible her best book yet.This story is so beautifully written beyond moving From start to finish I had tears in my eyes and butterflies in my tummy At points the tears were rolling down my face without my knowledge i was so engrossed in this book This book not only raises awareness of bullies but also autism and abuse.Kayden is ur typical bad boy bully See a kid that s different pick on them and watch them break down just for his and his friends enjoyment That is until the day he sees the [...]


  24. La autora tiene al menos una ligera idea sobre el autismo Yo dir a que no Irreal por todas partes, un quiero y no puedo Entiendo la dificultad por escribir un libro con protagonista autista narrando como se siente en cada situaci n, pero s te has metido ah tienes que saber que estas haciendo.El autismo no tiene cura, y autismo selectivo Wtf Ah puedo ver mutismo selectivo As juzgando muy a la ligera, y este no se cura con pastillas Lo que s que no es que se cure de la nada, por arte de magia, y s [...]


  25. I read this series out of order, so I already had an idea of the havoc Amy could cause It didn t make reading it any easier These characters were so well written that every heartbreaking moment was like it was happening to my best friend I loved Belle She was beautiful and deep I was right there with her throughout he whole story Kayden was the same Even when I was supposed to hate him, I couldn t The way he grew and changed was perfection As a teacher I want to believe these kinds of things don [...]


  26. DNF 41%Normally I don t rate things I haven t finished, but this book was so bad I feel like it deserves it It was filled with spelling and grammatical errors Guys, it was so cringe inducing I don t even know how to explain the extent of the ick factor The book under describes and would say things like, he handed me a gen pen He doesn t know it, but it s my favorite color, AND THEN NOT TELL YOU WHAT COLOR IT IS It s also the definition of tell not show The entire thing reads like a stream of con [...]


  27. This YA contemporary romance is different in so many ways It s sweet, heartbreaking, and heartwarming all at once Of course, there are many novels which can boast these traits, but Count On Me stands out because of the subject matter This is a beautiful story of young love, one of the main points of views coming from an autistic seventeen year old girl In fact, I have never read anything like it throughout the novel, I was allowed into her head, and I experienced the world the way she sees it Fo [...]


  28. Once I picked this book up it was hard to put down This is a beautiful book, amazingly told through the eyes of two very special people It was an extremely moving love story A powerful look into the world of autism and a reminder of the bullying that can occur from people who don t have a genuine understanding of what autism really is It s okay to have differences, to not be like everyone else around you I would recommend this book to readers of all ages.


  29. rates ok books at 2 stars and this is why I gave 2 It wasn t a bad read, it just wasn t for me.When I first read the blurb I couldn t wait to read it but when I did pick it up I wasn t wow d by it Now don t get me wrong, it was written well and it was good story but I just didn t enjoy it as much as I was hoping.
