The Healing Time of Hickeys Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Wanna meet someone who is just as boy-obsessed and spastic as you are? Then check out Haley Harmony in The Healing Time of Hickeys. Its a great piece of teen fiction from Raincoast Kids Books.

Author: Karen Rivers

Here's your chance to get inside the diary of someone more boy-obsessed, over-dramatic and less confident than you are! Okay, well, at least someone who is just as boy-obsessed, over-dramatic and under-confident as you are. All this and you'll find out how long it takes for a hickey to heal too!


Utterly Obsessed

This book has been called the Bridget Jones' Diary for teens. But you know what? It's better than that. If the title wasn't goofy enough, Haley Harmony, the main character, will definitely fill the goof-factor for ya. Haley is obsessed with a lot of things - a boy named J.T., how completely perfect her friends are, and how to make her teeth so white they glow in the dark. However, Haley's biggest obsession is recording every moment of TGYML (The Greatest Year of My Life), on her laptop she affectionately calls Junior. The problem, Haley quickly finds out, is that dubbing something TGYML before it even starts leaves room for nothing but disappointment - and disaster!


Haha's and Hurray!'s

This book will have you laughing out loud. Haley is a completely loveable and completely crazy character. You'll find yourself relating to everything she goes through - even if she goes through it with more dramatic trauma than a Young and the Restless episode. Her quirky thoughts are so much fun to read and her adventures in dating (or lack of), will have you giggling until your sides ache. Most of all, you'll probably feel better about yourself, your quirks, your family, your crushes and your friendships - because, hey, at least it's not as bad as Haley's life.


Boo Hiss

This book is generally in the "Hurray" category. The only real issue is that, by the last couple of chapters, Haley's goofy, quirky adventures start feeling a little over-the-top. It's almost like the author, Karen Rivers, packed a little too much Haley Harmony into one, wee book. In other words, this character deserves a series of novels. That way we could have a little dose of looniness a couple times a year.


The Bottom Line

This book is a total must-read. It's guaranteed to make you giggle and feel good - what more could you want in a book? If nothing else, you'll learn all about hickeys, not to mention rare diseases like Cat Scratch Fever.
