This is a story about a troubled girl who seeks refuge in a small town that she has never been too. The people she interacts with are what would seem like an average ordinary crowd, but there is more than meets the eye in these everyday folk.
From fires, to runaways, to pregnancy this book just about covers it. Don't let the number of pages fool you there is a abundance of depth to this novel.
Truly endearing, resounding in small town magic!

True Confessions of a Heartless Girl is a really sentimental book that arouses everyone's feelings and brings them back to their past.The best feature of the book is its realism and the way we can relate it to most of our lives! It's about teenagers and when we read it, we feel as if we are reading about ourselves. It talks about the role of community in a teenager's life. It shows us a ray of hope to never give up on something we desire, especially love because it's only once that in life when we can achieve true love.

It made me cry, laugh and get myself immersed in it at the same time. One must read it once and see themselves laughing and crying within the novel.

This book is really well written, and it is so emotional in the dialogue and characters' actions. It really makes you feel for the characters. It's really realistic that you can imagine being seventeen year old Noreen, pregnant, in love, but feeling as if you have nowhere to go. This book touches upon all subjects in life: family, relationships, respect, happiness, depression, love, and loss. It really does not contain all that girly, quirky things you find in other books for young girls or women. I liked how it got into the minds of all the characters in the book, from old Doreen, to Del, Lynda, and Noreen. This book is great for everyone of all ages and gender. And it was funny also. I really enjoyed it. It has inspired me as a writer to talk about more controversial and life inspiring things in life, especially hardships and the importance of helping others, even when you have the choice not to. You must pick up this book!

Seventeen-year-old Noreen leaves her loving boyfriend Wesley after she screws up their relationship, and winds up in a small town café in the middle of a violent storm. Lynda, a single mother and the cafés owner, reluctantly takes her in, and on the advice of neighbors Del (who has his own troubled past) and elderly Delores (still mourning the death of her daughter), Noreen stays on. Pregnant and unsure of herself, everything Noreen touches seems to go wrong in hugely disastrous ways. But with the help of the people around her, will she be able to see where her life is headed?

I heard rave reviews of this book, but personally I thought it was pretty awful. Noreen is truly a heartless girl, and I didnt feel sorry for her in the least. The cast of adult characters seemed out of place in a YA novel, and most of them were extremely clichéd. The only character in the whole book that I liked was Wesley, and I just felt sorry for him because he had to put up with Noreen. Two much better story dealing with a somewhat similar theme are Billie Lettss Where the Heart Is" and Jean Ferris's "Finding Home," so go read them instead of this!
