The book "Sara Whenever I Hear Your Name" by Jack Weyland is definitely a must read! It begins as the new girl, Sara, moves next door to Travis, who thinks that she is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. At the time they are both 15-almost 16. Travis convinces Sara to go on a hike with him, while during it Sara continually makes comments about how he will soon grow to hate her. (THE NEXT SENTENCE IS NOT A SPOILER, IT IS LITERALLY STATED IN THE FIRST CHAPTER OR TWO) He finds out that Sara had been sexually abused by her step-father and is now a pregnant foster child, and to her amazement, Travis still wants to be her friend! I thought that this book was very fun to read, though it did talk about adult situations and traumas, it did not go into detail, which made it easier to get through. Though I did find it unnecessary for Sara to mention her dog so much, but it all played as its own affect in the end. The book was wonderful! Until the end... I would have preferred a different ending, but I can not say what that would be because of spoilers. Don't get me wrong, it did end well, I was just hoping for it to turn out differently. (That's why I knocked off a star.) I really liked the way it was written. I loved the way the author narrated it so that I could see every character's point of view. not only the main character. I believe that the life lesson portrayed in this book is that everything happens for a reason. This book was very well thought out as it presented itself in such a phenomenal way!

Good Ebook Sara, Whenever I Hear Your Name Sara, Whenever I Here Your Name by Jack Weyland is a book about friendship and acceptance When a new girl moves in next door to Travis, he starts to wonder who she is. She is beautiful but she doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with Travis. When Travis finds out that Sara was raped by her step father he is thrown into a world of confusion. Travis helps Sara get through her pregnancy and develop a strong friendship. I loved this book because it is so well written. You find out the back stories and then you move on. Sara explains that she loves school and wants to go back to high school but has to wait until after she has her baby. When Sara does go back people are mean and cruel to her. She was so brave to do all of that and still go on with a smile on her face. When Sara had her baby she gave her up for adoption. In my opinion it was really brave and loving of Sara to give up her baby so that she could be given a better home. This book also reminded me of another book that Jack Weyland has written, Megan. Megan becomes pregnant and has to go through figuring out if she wants to keep her baby, or put him up for adoption. With Sara we don't know if she wanted to keep her baby, all we know is that she is put into a foster home. Both books really struck home for me because they were just in high school when all of this happened. I also love that Jack Weyland puts some religion and shows the process that both girls take in order to get their lives "back in order." I think that the author wrote this book to show that a true friend looks past your mistakes and your physical disabilities and they accept you for who you are. I think that the theme of this book is a true friend will accept you for who you are and look past your faults, because even though Travis knew that Sara was pregnant he still wanted to be her friend and he accepted her for who she was.
