    This is the sequel to Portrait of a Girl Running, and if I had known what was going to happen to Leila in this book, well, I think I would have bought Kleenex.Chicoine has a mastery over words that I just can t fathom She brings us into Leila s world with such depth and emotion that I swear I am right there in it Again, Leila is in a constant state of change, with tragedy to deal with, but also, a ray of hope that somehow she ll get through it and get to the other side I couldn t help think that Leila had gone through a LOT of stuff already and now the author seemed to want to put her through the ringer once I mean how much could this poor girl take but then I realized, real life has a tendency to do that as well You get through one crisis, and then bam, another takes its place So I could empathize with Leila on her journey, and hope and pray she would get the happy ending she finally deserved.I m not giving spoilers, but I do honestly recommend keeping a box of tissues handy There are two scenes that had me sobbing like a baby But that just says so much about the author and her way of getting into what really makes a great story This book is a winner

    Portrait of a Prot g is the outstanding sequel to Portrait of a Girl Running It definitely took me on an enjoyable ride that was filled with unexpected twists and turns It may not seem like it to some considering all that happens to Leila , but J.B Chicoine was definitely thinking of her readers in this one She provides a wonderfully quirky and amusing segment at the end of the book that gives us a glimpse inside her mind Not many authors do that.Like Girl Running, Prot g is a novel that has many layers, and I cannot help but want I just love the way Chicoine expertly crafted every situation and struggle, making them so real The characters are just as in depth and real as in Girl Running, and I could not help but miss them when I finished it I will be waiting and hoping anxiously for a third book

    3 stars I liked it, I did Genuinely The writing is still of quality, and the characters are still all well fleshed out and relatable But this one started feeling a bit too much like a soap opera, for me So many male characters all vying for Leila at the same time, and she s not even really view spoiler over Ian yet hide spoiler

    After reading Portrait of a Girl Running, I was anxious to see where Chicoine would take Leila, Ian Brigham and Clarence Myles story The author did not disappoint, although I have to say I have mixed feelings about some of the turns this story takes I won t give anything away, but from the outset, I sensed something had gone very wrong in Leila s new life up in New Hampshire, as if she hadn t already been through enough Chicoine gradually reveals what transpired in the past several years, culminating with another heart wrencher Sensitive readers may want to keep a hanky on hand I have to admit, I was not prepared for what comes next Again, I don t want to spoil anyone s process of discovery Chicoine adeptly moves Leila through a gamut of emotions, developing the relationship between Leila and her guardian Clarence Myles, while taking us on a journey from New Hampshire to Philadelphia to Mississippi to Boston and back I had mixed feelings about how I wanted this story to end Again, I enjoyed reading in Myles point of view and even a little in Leila s grandmother s, Miss Angela Phillips after all, I am a grownup reading what is probably considered New Adult the follow up to a YA novel This story has a psychological bent without getting too heavy I m still thinking about the story and I reckon the characters will be with me a while longer I also loved the bit at the end Meet the Cast Be sure to read that, too

    I finished this book a few weeks ago, but couldn t decide how to rate it right away I thoroughly enjoyed the way it is written and the emotion and detail that flow throughout the story Some of the underlying themes were a bit much for me, though I understand that people often reach out in strange ways when they are suffering from severe trauma in their lives, but I almost wanted to skip over parts where the main character acts like a thirteen year old with a crush since she did not act that way at all when she actually WAS a teenager Her emotions and feelings in all other aspects were very mature even when she was suppressing them I loved Leila s interaction with although it was a very difficult situation for her The story line was good and the author kept me wondering how everything was going to work out Overall, this was a good read and I did like it.I received a free copy of this book from the author for review.
