    1. OMG!! I absolutely loved this book! I was a gifted a copy from the author, Lucy Kelly in return for an honest review! Let me tell you, once I started it I couldn't put it down. I was totally wrapped up in all the character's lives.  I felt like I was right there in the room with Em, going through all the emotions she was going through! I found myself cheering for her and her friends with every chapter.  Em lost her little brother Peter to leukemia but it was as if he was always right there wit [...]


    2. Holding On and Letting Go is a PHENOMENAL story. I mean I have never ever cried and laughed and screamed at a book all at once. I mean K.A. has written a story that will tug at your heart and leave you breathless. Right from the very first page I was enthralled by the story. The descriptions and the world we get to be a part of is just phenomenal.Emmy and Matt have grown up next to each other. They are best friends sharing everything and doing everything together. Em's little brother gets sick a [...]


    3. I received a copy gifted from the author for an honest review as part of her blog tour. This was such a deeply emotional read for me! After losing both my mom and maternal grandfather to brain cancer before I even hit high school, I'm all too familiar with the weight of grief that manifests in anger, sadness, loneliness, and just plain hurt. Every time Emerson visited her brother's grave and spoke to him, I cried. When she heard a girl making fun of her deceased brother, I cried. Who makes fun o [...]


    4. Book Review/Book Tour can be found at Jackie's Book World *Provided by the Author*I absolutely love this book, it has a lot of the elements that make this story a page-turner. From the first page to the very end, I found myself completely immersed in the world of Emerson Caulfield, a sixteen year old whose life has been full of eventful events since the day she was born. Her parents have stopped acting as parents and she has lost her little brother as a young girl. Taken to France by her parents [...]


    5. Holding On and Letting Go, literally brought me to tears – not once but twice. Emerson had been through the terrible tragedy of losing her little brother, and she was left to cope and pick up the pieces. She was stronger though than anyone, especially Matty, gave her credit for. I liked her ability to realize that she wasn’t the same person any more and that she wasn’t afraid to admit it. How could something like that not change you? Also I liked that she realized she needed help and asked [...]


    6. I absolutely adored this book! I started this book one morning before work. finished that night when I got home. I could NOT put it down. It was glued to my finger! Darn the convenience of reading on my iphone/ipad. LoL The characters in Holding on & Letting Go are absolutely stunning. They're complex and very well-rounded. I honestly felt like I could bump into them walking down the street. Loved them! Ug - Heartbreaking! 20 pages in, I was already in tears! This novel, warning, deals with [...]


    7. 5 STARS!! Holding on and Letting Go by K.A. Coleman had me crying from the beginning. I knew this was a tearjerker. I stepped outside my wussy norm and risked my heart anyway. Emerson Caulfield lost the love of her life. If you're thinking some wild boy who died way too young, you're right. She lost her baby brother who had the most amazing spirit. He was the light of her life. Darkness swallowed her and kept her captive for two years until she returned home. Thing with letting light back in you [...]

    9. See original post Here!Plot:Emerson Caulfield has returned home after her parents shipped her off to France when her younger brother died two years ago. Now home and living with her brother she goes through the motions to try and make it through the days without Peter. Visiting his grave every day and constantly dreading waking up in the morning though definitely doesn’t help on her first day back to high school.Matt and Emerson used to be best friends until she ceased all contact with him aft [...]


    10. Lucy A. Kelly’s Holding On and Letting Go is a poignant tale about love, loss, and growing up. Two years after the death of brother, Emerson Caulfield returns home. There's one person excited to see her, her childhood friend, Matt, but he quickly realizes that the Emerson he knew isn’t the girl standing before him. Emerson's happy to cut ties with everyone who knew Peter and that means acting indifferent towards Matt. When Matt’s ex-girlfriend sets out to ruin Emerson’s reputation by spr [...]


    11. Original quick review: I love nothing more than finding a story that truly moves me, that truly sticks with me and this book did exactly that. I loved every moment of this book; the good, the bad, and the ugly. I loved these characters and their stories. They went through hell, at times, but they found a way to make life worth living. Such a touching story. I'm so glad the author offered me a free copy for an honest review, which you just got. I would gladly have bought it and I do intend to buy [...]


    12. I don't even know where to beginis book was truly breathtaking. It is for sure top book I have read this year and is definitely in the list of top books I've ever read as well.This book is a soft spot for me. I may not have lost a sibling, but I lost a father, and I know the pain very well from that. It is hard to move on in life with this big gaping hole inside you. It never goes away, you just learn to get through it on a day to day basis.Emerson is a train wreck, swallowed in depression and g [...]


    13. *ARR (Advance Reader Review) - copy provided as a gift in exchange for an honest review The Cover:The cover is ok, simple and to the point. It drew my attention. The Characters:The characters were good but I had a hard time connecting with a couple of them (might be a fault of my own). The Story Line:The story line was simple yet intricate. The Writing Style:It was fine, however there were some minor spelling errors that made me double read. The Ending:the way the ending played out was surprisin [...]


    14. To be quite honest, this review is difficult for me to write. Not because this was a book I didn't like, but because it's a book that's left me completely speechless, and touched me in a way I wasn't expecting. This contemporary realistic fiction novel is, by far, one of the best books I have ever read. I can't remember a story that's made me cry as much as this one has, and I loved every minute of it. The situations and events in this story are so real, and so deep, it's impossible not to be mo [...]


    15. A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.Wow, that was emotional.Let me tell you one thing. If you start the book and you don't like it, do not mark it as a DNF. Because this book just gets better as it progresses. The beginning was a bit slow for me, but as I plowed on I started falling in love with the characters, and I couldn't help finishing it in one day!Emerson is a very complex character. After two years, she is still grieving her younger brother's death. Before P [...]


    16. Holding On and Letting Go was a very emotional read. It really tugged at my heartstrings and dealt with the overwhelming grief that surrounds someone when they lose a loved one. This book truly delves into the sibling bond and the unwavering love siblings share for one another.Emerson has been through a lot in her young life and the loss of her little brother had a profound affect on her. It truly changed her as a person and no matter how much she wants to or how much Matt wants her to, she can [...]


    17. Okay. So despite my favorite genre to be dystopian and all, and sci-fi, I also really like contemporary and romance. And now, I even have no problem reading new adult. ;) Just not adult, thank you very much. Emerson Caulfield - Emerson's nickname is Em. Although Emerson sounds like a guy name, I feel like it fits her. This strong, stubborn girl. Yep. Totally fits her. It reminds me of Miranda Keneally's Jordan. Okay fine. Jordan can be a girl's name, but it seems more like a guy's name to me. Em [...]


    18. Posted at Book Hoarder ReviewsIt’s hard for me to review a book like this because it hits so close to home. I cried a lot while reading it, but mainly because it reminded me of my own memories. Like Emerson, I too lost my younger brother about four and a half years ago. However unlike Emerson, I didn’t have a best friend looking out for me.The thing that I really loved about this story was the characters. I can understand Emerson and I sympathized with her feelings. Half way through the stor [...]


    19. Emerson Caulfield has had a difficult time dealing with the death of her brother.  When she returns home after being away for 2 years the people of her past life are a constant reminder her of all the mistakes she's made in her life.  Matt Fitzgerald was Emerson's best friend until she left, and when she returns he wants to go back to the way things were before.  Matt and Emerson's story of finding themselves told in alternating perspectives shows readers how the loss of a loved one can impac [...]


    20. Original review at: librarymosaic/2013I have received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review as a part of a book tour.Holding on and Letting Go is an emotional read with great characters and an interesting story.I really liked the characters in this book. Emerson is the main character and she grows a lot as the story develops. After losing her brother she has to learn to move on and to ask for help. She’s a strong and interesting character.Matty is a great character as well. [...]


    21. Although I am an adult, one of my favorite genre's is young adult fiction. All kids of YA fiction. This is a FANTASTIC book. Seriously. I sometimes wonder if i see YA fiction differently than actual Young Adults, because i've lived more years of "life" than they have, i guess that question is not one that can really be answered. This book was a gift from the Author, Lucy A. Kelly, so first I want to thank her for her generosity! I have no idea if i would have stumbed onto this fantastic piece of [...]


    22. Review contains some spoilers.Although the book was a little slow off the ground, I grew to really quite enjoy it. I thought it was emotional but realistic. The main character, Em, realised pretty quickly that she needed help to change who she had become, and so I was quite surprised when about a quarter of the way through the story, that problem was sorted. However, K.A Coleman was good in that she then followed the character through her whole journey, navigating the twists and turns of her new [...]


    23. Holding On and Letting Go is a great debut novel; actually for me it is the debut surprise of the year. Told from dual POV’s this is a story about different kinds of relationships; ones between friends turned boyfriend girlfriend, ones between friends, ones between enemies turn friends, and those between siblings and family relationships.The story is not surprising just because it is well written or because it is a highly emotional read, but because it was able to completely take me in differe [...]


    24. This is an incredible story about various relationships between siblings, friends and significant others. The reader is able to view various character perspectives along the way. The characters are smart, witty, and full of life. I actually felt as I was a part of each character's journey. The book is so addicting I couldn't put it down and I didn't want it to end. This is a must read! Tell your family, friends, and colleagues about it! This is a book club discussion waiting to happen!!!


    25. I loved this book. Writing about teenagers in a realistic way is a difficult task. Writing about teenagers in a realistic way without turning adults into some ridiculous, two-dimensional caricature is even more difficult. I love the way this novel deals with the issues that teenagers face without making it seem as if life's problems get less difficult more manageable as an adult. . Truly this is the novel that all teen lit should strive to emulate.


    26. I sometimes have a hard time getting through reading a book. I must say this book will hold your attention until the very end. You do not want to put this book down until you're finished. I fell in love with the characters and can't wait to see what is next for this debut author. What a masterpiece.



    27. I want to say first, that this is a really good book. Death is a very real thing. I am a sibling with out --just as Emerson is. This book would bring me to the verge of tearsI will have to come back.I do recommend this book.


    28. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. I found myself lost in the book and couldn't wait to get back to it. It is believable situations that make your heart go out to the characters. I can't wait to read the second book to see where the characters end up!
