Far From You by Lisa Schroeder

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Genre: Contemporary
Release Date: 12/23/08
About the Book: Years have passed since the death of Alice's mother, but Alice can't seem to move on. Her father has re-married and his new wife has just had a baby. Alice doesn't want anything to do with them and finds comfort in her music and her boyfriend. When Alice, her step mom and her new baby sister find themselves trapped in a deadly snowstorm, Alice finds herself having to face issues and feelings she's pushed aside in order to save her life.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I am a big fan of Lisa Schroeder and she doesn't disappoint! Alice's journey is beautifully written and full of emotion. I loved her boyfriend Blaze, who is such a great example of an awesome boyfriend-I kind of had a book boy crush on him. I also liked the elements of Alice and her faith-it wasn't overt or anything, but it made Alice a more realistic. I did find myself wanting to yell at Alice for being so selfish at times, but that's what makes Lisa Schroeder such a great writer. Her characters are real, their relationships believable, and her writing flows. I still like I Heart You, You Haunt Me better, but if you liked that book or are a fan of novels in verse, give Far From You a try.


  1. Blaze was totally the best! I have a book-boy crush too!

  2. I'll have to buy this, I loved her last book! Thanks for the review!

  3. I'm getting this in the mail soon. Can't wait to read this!

  4. I haven't read any of her other books, but I have this one on my shelf.

  5. I really want to read this one, it sounds amazing.

  6. I liked Far From You, but I thought it was too short (I don't care for books in verse for this reason.)


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
