Product Description

Isn’t it weird how the truly significant days of your life often begin as the most banal? There you are, just minding your own business, doing something boring and ordinary like buying a KitKat or, in my case, catching the number 29 bus home from work, and boom! – the most momentous and life-changing event happens to you! Naomi is restless. She’s on her gap year and stuck at home with her parents while all her friends are travelling or away at university. Then she meets Danny, a mysterious and intense musician who opens her eyes to a whole new world around her. Danny is exciting and talented, and his band are on the brink of stardom. But he also has a dark, destructive side . . .Will Naomi be able to save Danny before it’s too late? And, more importantly, can she save herself?

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for teen age girls! 11 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
Loving Danny by Hilary Freeman is by far one of the best books I have read. The main character Naomi is a realistic, kind character who is easy to relate to and feel for and as for Danny, well he is impossible to dislike even when he makes a mistake. The romance and sweetness of this book kept me smiling until the book reaches it's dramatic climax that broke my heart. This is a wonderful book that captures you and makes you care. I spilt more than a few tears reading this and couldn't stop myself from giggling and smiling like it was me and not Naomi who was loving Danny. 5 stars easy. A brilliant, encapsulating read for every teenage girl who isn't a judemental person, incapable of looking past Danny's faults and finding the reasons for them(if you are then don't bother with this). I am loving "Loving Danny"!

That review is not my opinion, my sister wrote that. I personally didn't really like the book as I found the main character annoying and Danny is much too emo for my taste. That "judgemental person, incapable of looking past Danny's faults" that she was talking aboout is me. I wouldn't tell you not to read it because it's not that bad it just depends on your taste, it's a bit too cheesy for me and it seems like it's trying too hard to be "dramatic" and "epic" when it's just really a trashy teen romance book. I have nothing against that and I really like teen romances but in my opinion this isn't the best one by a long shot. I would give this book 2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars It could have been me! Riveting read. 27 April 2006
Format:Paperback
I was unable to put this book down! Hilary has succeeded in capturing the voice of an 18-year-old girl perfectly (it could have been me!) and has delivered an absolutely gripping read. Loving Danny isn't just another teenage love story. It tackles complex issues about relationships and pulls no punches. Through the novel Hilary imparts valuable experience to young women who find themselves out of their depth and deep in love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Danny 13 July 2006
Format:Paperback
I thought it was well written and captivating. I liked the fact the narrative didn't push the reader either way particularly so I felt Naomi's confusion and empathised with her for not knowing who to believe.

I also thought a lot of it was very accurate about teenage life and finding out who you are and what you want in life and liked the fact she was uncertain about her future. I also thought it was good it wasn't too wrapped in to a happy ending but was left more open with the reader still unsure of how her future would turn out.

I found it a really enjoyable read I could not put down and hope to see more books from Hilary Freeman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and relatable 31 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
It isn't often you find a book that you can really relate to, but 'Loving Danny' is it. Freeman regularly allows you to connect with the main character Naomi, with the way she makes remarks about her appearance, her friends, her job and her school life. There is not a dull moment. The darker issues covered in the book are well-written and show understanding, and the sad ending completely throws you off track. In all, a very enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read. 30 April 2006
Format:Paperback
I suspect I am not in the target age-group for this book, (the protagonist is about 18) however I was quickly and easily drawn in, and read it in just two sittings as I found it hard to put down. Naomi's all-consuming love she feels for Danny took me sharply back to my first flame, and the achingly high highs and devastating lows which accompany that first love. Highly recommended.

A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
Loving Danny is about a girl called Naomi, who falls in love with a boy called Danny. Naomi's parents have never really trusted Danny, and want Naomi to have a break from him, but this forces them closer together when Naomi goes to live with Danny. When living with Danny Naomi starts to doubt Danny herself, but it's at the end of the book when Naomi really comes to terms with what she has unknowingly dragged herself into...
I absolutely loved this book - it kept me hooked from start to end. It brought dramatic twists and turns and by the end you have really got to know both characters. I really wanted the best for both of them, and I love the way how Hilary Freeman really involves the reader, because it is described so clearly. This is the third of Hilary's books that I've read and I've loved all of them. When I started reading Loving Danny it sounded like another love story, but when I got into the book I knew that there was a lot more to it. She is such a talented writer and I can't wait for her next book to come out (the celeb next door). I would more than recommend this to anyone 13+. Another fantastic read from an amazing author!

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it in two days. 1 April 2008
By Laura
Format:Paperback
I felt this book went much deeper than the average teen book. It not only created a strong atmosphere but you really felt the characters emotions, they were explained so well. The story didn't drag as it felt much shorter than it actually was and considering I read it in three sittings, it was a real page-turner.
I really enjoyed this book, even though it went so fast! The ending was not dissappointing either, I was content with it even though it wasn't a "and they lived happily ever after" ending. It made you want to find what happened to Naomi (the main character and my name!) did in the future.
This book is well worth the read! I hope Hilary Freeman writes some more books!
