This YA novel with the eye-catching book cover is a fast-paced, action-packed and emotionally stirring read from beginning to end. We begin with an elaborate counterfeiting plot that involves teens and weaves itself throughout the story about a group of kids who take on a superhero role and decide to take action against bullying.

My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

I'm not one to read many romance novels. I did plenty of that in my youth, but once in a while I like to delve into a good romance. Hello, My Love! is the first book in the Between Two Worlds series by E Journey.

This was a good romance story that drew me in from the very beginning. Elise is a smart law student who is aiming at a good career. She doesn't trust men in general and especially rich men who have a different woman draped on their arm every night. She is independent but has a close relationship with her family and her roommate. She is a strong character who is likable because she is forthright and sensible, but alas, she too falls for the alpha male.

Patrick's Journey is an historical fiction novel based on the real life history of one of Australia's early convict settlers.
