Book Review - Heading Home by Renee Riva

Heading home is the third book in the The Indian Island Trilogy. i didn't know that it was a series until halfway through the book. this was a good one though it was a pretty fast read. the main character A.J. is moving back to her home or was once her home. and she is going to school when she moves back. i won't give much away but it was a pretty good one too bad the other ones aren't at my library cause i would totally want to read them. but that is for another time. long story short its a good book buy it!

Book Description:

When A.J. returns home to Indian Island, her dog Sailor, and childhood friend Danny, she surprises everyone with her plans . . . but Danny has something else in mind.
For eight years, A.J. Degulio has been itching to get back to her beloved Indian Island. It’s home. But a lot has changed: Sailor moves slower, Danny has grown into a man . . . and A.J. has a promise to keep…but it doesn’t include Danny. When Danny discovers the truth, he’s shocked and hurt. But he won’t stand in the way of what she really wants.
What’s a girl to do? She wants to keep her promise and Danny. But Danny has plans of his own. Can they work it out? It will take compromise and laughter before Danny and A.J. figure out that home is more than a place on the map. It’s a place in the heart.

  1. Have you asked them if they can interlibrary loan (ILL) the other books? Most public libraries will do that, and it's a lot cheaper than buying :)
