Stevenson, Nanci Turner You Make my Heart... Swing Sideways, 279 pages. Harper Collins Children’s Books, 2016. $16.99. Language: G (1 swear 0 “f”) Mature Content: G Violence: G. 

14-year-old Annie and her parents are having issues within their family and a doctor tells them that they need to give Annie more freedom during this summer. Annie goes off and finds a new friend named California who needs help reuniting her Grandfather and Mother. Will they be able to bring California’s mom back and still have unity within Annie’s family? 

This book was not a very interesting book in any way. It made me feel sad and depressed as I read this book and felt the same emotions as the characters. It was very descriptive but at the same time it was repetitive and had almost no action. I would not recomend reading this book.
