Next-door neighbors and ex-best friends Hannah and Emory haven’t spoken in months. Not since the fight—the one where they said things they couldn’t take back.

Now, Emory is fine-tuning her UCLA performing arts application and trying to make the most of the months she has left with her boyfriend, Luke, before they head off to separate colleges. Meanwhile, Hannah’s strong fai

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 with her faith and comes to terms with whether it

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 perfectly timed they were. I was completely invested in everyone

Little Do We Know by Tamara Ireland Stone is a novel that will definitely leave you thinking long after reading it. The concept of faith is explored in an interesting way that will have readers question their own beliefs. Friendship and what it takes to maintain a relationship with your friends is a theme that also runs deep through the book.

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 attends a religious high school run by her father they

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.

I haven't had a ton of time to read (not listen) to books this year due to all my house stuff. This book pulled me in from the very beginning. Full review to come.

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 two girls have been best friends their entire lives

(Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

First off, can we just say how cool the cover is? It's absolutely perfect for this book. Okay now that I've gotten that out of the way. What really won me over for this book were the characters. Both Hannah and Emory have little pieces of my heart within them. Seeing their perspectives intertwine and branch apart was like watching an intricate dance. It was mesmerizing to watch it

I'd like to thank Disney-Hyperion for providing me with an advanced galley in exchange for an honest review.

Hannah and Emory used to be best friends until, according to Emory, Hannah did something completely unforgivable. A few months later, they are worlds apart even though they live thirty-six steps away. Emory is with Luke until they both, unfortunately, part ways for college. Hannah is stuck at her covenant school, questioning her religious beliefs. When Luke ends up in front of Han

Oh, be still my heart! This book was positively lovely, moving, emotional and classic Tamara Ireland Stone. I was a little hesitant after reading the synopsis because religion is a gray area that can go south quickly but Tamara artfully weaves it into the story line. I always find myself struggling for words when I review Tamara's books because they move me on such an internal level.

Hannah and Emory's friendship is broken, but the story is abo

Liked this one despite it being slow moving and predictable. I didn't like Emory since she was self-centered, haughty, and dependent. Hannah was amazing and so was Luke. I liked how the author incorporated a near death experience and moving on with life afterwards into this.

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

I cried a lot!! I so appreciate YA that tackles faith and religion thoughtfully.
Beth Bryden-miller
More ninth grade than eighth, wasn't sure where the author was going with the religious aspect, I guess ultimately that faith can be a personal thing. Questionable choices by adults, but not necessarily in a teenagers can prevail. The minor characters were super minor and not fleshed out at all.

Another fantastic novel from the marvelous Tamara Ireland Stone! Her book Every Last Word is one of my favorites of all time and her latest, Little Do We Know, is much different from her well-loved mental health novel. I didn't know much about the premise before reading, other than the story of friendship and a boy being the glue in their

EDIT 6/1/18: THIS BOOK IS OUT TUESDAY....HOORAY!

Little Do We Know is, without a doubt, one of my favorite books of 2018.

This book is the story of two best friends, Hannah and Emory, who have not spoken in a few months after a fight that tore them apart. The chapters alternate between their perspectives and follow their lives as they have diverged from each other.

There’s so much more to the story, but I’m not quite sure how to express my feelings without doing proper justice to how much I adore

Oh, man. This book about did me in, and days later I am still trying to pinpoint the magic moments that led me down that path. The biggest and best thing, in my opinion, that this book has going for it is the overall positivity. Stone handled issues like lifelong best friends no longer speaking to each other, and left out all the crap, for lack of a better word. There weren’t any instances of caddy behavior, backstabbing, name-calling, or downright meanness. No social media posts, no friends doi ...more

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me an early arc of this!!

This was such an interesting novel about having faith and a belief for teens. I really liked reading this one and hearing the different characters point of views in what they believe.

The book flips back and forth between two ex best friends, Emory and Hannah. Hannah grew up in a Christian family. Her father is the local pastor of her church and the christian high school she attends. Emory grew up next door to Hannah with her mom. They g

Not only does Little Do We know by Tamara Ireland Stone have a gorgeous and eye catching cover, but the story itself is one to talk about. Stone has given us a glance into the life of two girls who have very different backgrounds, but somehow their lives intertwine to make this bis, messy picture of beauty.
