    its books like this that make me fall in love with YA contemporary all over again. i think tamara stone has a really precise way of capturing the struggles that not only teens go through, but people in general. struggles with how to be a good friend, struggles with questioning what you believe, struggles with losing someone close to you, struggles with following your heart vs. following your head. i loved how so much was discussed in this book, b...

    2.5 STARS I think I'm going to keep this one brief as I don't feel completely unbiased in my review here. I'm going to list below the pros and cons I found in this novel and let you decide for yourself if it seems like the book for you.Pros:-I absolutely love the portrayal of growth and self thought portrayed here. One of the plots involves a teenage girl who is raised in a christian home with a pastor for a father, and along the way she wrestles...

    I’m 1000000% on board for whatever Tamara writes, so I don’t even read the synopsis of her books.Love love loved Emory and Hannah and Luke. They’re all going through something and it was captivating to see how their lives intersected because of it. I’m intentionally being vague because I don’t want to ruin anything.Plot wise, it gripped me from the first page. I couldn’t wait to get to the reveals and loved how deliciously slow and pe...

  • Christina (Confessions of a Book Addict)
    Hannah and Emory are best friends and next door neighbors. For years they have been inseparable until one day they have a major falling out, but readers don't know the details. Emory has a dreamy boyfriend, Luke, and she is involved in her school's theater program, while Hannah is the polar opposite. She goes to a Christian high school and her father is the pastor. She has been brought up to be very religious, but she is starting to question thin...

    I absolutely adored this story. The cast of characters was an absolute blast, and I loved how their lives intersected the way they did. This story definitely had its sad and heartbreaking moments, but was also hopeful and quite inspirational. I’m staying as vague as I can with my thoughts because I feel it’s best to go into this story with a blank slate. I promise you’ll be happy you did. I’m officially a hardcore Tamara Ireland Stone fan...

    A powerful, emotional, memorable story!FRTC!
  • Kayla
    I don't usually like books focused mainly on a friendshup because I like books that are action packed and fast paced.Some parts of this book were really good and flowed really well others I didn't really care for.
  •  Megan • Reading Books Like a Boss (book blog)
    When I read this book I was neck-deep in new house projects. I hadn't physically read a book in what felt like forever (*tears*), often opting for audiobooks that I could listen to while painting an endless amount of ceilings and walls. With LITTLE DO WE KNOW, I was immediately pulled into the mystery of what could've caused a lifelong friendship to splinter in half. Stone thoughtfully explores the dynamic of teenage friendship, coming-of-age, an...

    Focusing on the bonds of friendship, faith & family, this was lovely.

    Tamara Ireland Stone is back in top form with this absolutely lovely look at the deep friendship between two young women who couldn't be more different finding their way back to each other after a world shifting fight nearly destroys them.Hannah and Emory have been best friends practically since babyhood. Though Emory is a social butterfly actress with a single mom and a long term boyfriend and Hannah is the devout daughter of a preacher and atte...
    LITTLE DO WE KNOW is another solid YA contemporary from Tamara Ireland Stone. It did take me longer than I would have liked to warm up to the two POV characters. But the more I read, the more I got sucked into the story, and the more it made me think about the themes and the relationships within the tale.

    Excuse me, Tamara, but I would like my heart back. And in one piece instead of the little parts you burst it into with this gorgeous book.Alright, now that you know you’re going to need to invest in some Kleenex stock to get you through this read, let’s talk about all the reasons why you should be reading it.1. We all know I am big on character driven stories and LDWN is full of characters you want to love from the minute you meet them. They...
  • Tiffany
    Pretty bummed by this one. I thought I was really going to love it, but the search for answers for her faith seemed a little half-hearted, the relationship between her teacher and her staying a little secret was also hard for me to swallow... Young girls reading this book... If your teacher/ pastor is getting you alone to make out with you TELL SOMEONE! I don't care if he is only 3 or 4 years older, it's not okay, and the way this was written mad...
  • Christina (Ensconced in Lit)
    I absolutely love Tamara's books, so when I heard she was coming out with another contemporary, I was thrilled! I really enjoyed Little Do We Know, thanks to Disney for sending this to me for review, and this fact does not change my rating or my review.Little Do We know stars two protagonists in alternating chapters. We have Hannah, who is a devout Christian, who has never had her faith shaken... until now, and Emory, who lives next door. These t...
  • Lisa Mandina
    My first book by this author is not a disappointment. I really enjoyed it, had trouble putting it down as I was reading. There was a lot of great character interaction in this story. I had a tiny inkling what might have happened to cause the rift between Hannah and Emory, although really, it was pretty much downplayed because of how the talk with Hannah and her dad sounded. I couldn't quite imagine what Hannah would have whispered in Luke's ear t...

    Ahhh what to say! This was one of my most anticipated releases of the summer and it didn't fail me! I purchased this book at a book event to meet the lovely author, Tamara. On with the review. I went into this book with some pretty high expectations and for the most part, those expectations were met. ~SPOILERS AHEAD~When we were first introduced to the idea of Hannah and Aaron engaging in a romantic relationship, I wasn't on board. He was much ol...

    Tamara Ireland Stone's books tend to be quietly powerful. Going into Little Do We Know, my expectations for the book were high, especially after how much I loved her previous books. As with her other stories, Little Do We Know was a deeply emotional book about two teens finding growing up. If you're looking for a wonderful coming-of-age story, this one should be on your list.Growing up, Hannah and Emory were neighbors and inseparable best friends...
