Jessie ends up getting pretty sick and I was really getting concerned about her as it was really taking an effect on her but of course she gets over it but something doesn't seem okay with Jessie.
Her and Ethan are doing great and you can tell he really cares for her and that is just amazing especially because Jessie is hearing impaired and does everything in his power to make her feel special.
With Jessie slowly coming out of shell we see her starting to get a bit of a voice when she isn't happy with how she is being treated which all I can say is it is about time. It has been a great journey following Jessie as she has gone from quiet, to learning karate, to now speaking up for herself.
Now there were times in the story that I could feel myself getting angry. One being when we read about a memory of hers where a teacher threw her school items outside of the classroom door and made her go out there. What teacher does that?
One quote I love in this book and it is said by Ethan to Jessie. " You have the power to be in control of everything that happens, especially now."
One of the funny parts in this story was when Jessie was volunteering in the hospital and she witnessed one of the nurses escorting one of the patients to the bathroom. This patient was dropping tootsie rolls on the floor. I could do nothing but laugh and I will no longer look at that candy the same again.
The only problem I had with the story was there seemed to be some either formatting issues or maybe misspellings. It wasn't bad but you noticed them when it happened.
This is a great coming of age story that I think everyone would love to read this series.
The book continues right away where the second part stopped, and we get to follow the life of Jessie through good days and bad days, with disappointments and joyful moments, and see her grow more and more towards the end of the book.
Would have been nice to have still one more book about her adult life, but that wouldn't be in the same category then...
Certainly a book series I would recommend to teenage persons that like karate, are ok with romance in their books and want to learn something more about how life can be different for other young persons.
Jessie McIntyre is a character I could relate to easily. She has faced many difficult challenges over the last couple of years, what with being bullied at school and competing at Karate tournaments. Now heading towards her eighteenth birthday, Jessie is finding life even more complicated. Will she overcome the obstacles placed in her way? And can she find out what her destiny has in store?
After finishing Compass, I was eager to start reading Destiny and started reading it as soon as I could. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Jessie overcome more than her fair share of problems over the series. She is a very determined young woman, but I found her insecurity caused by her hearing is one issue that seems to hold her back at times.
This story sees Jessie trying her hand at working, first at a art class as an assistant, and then as a volunteer candy-striper at the hospital. I can remember my first attempts at the job market; I remember how nervous I was, worried I would make a complete idiot of myself. Therefore, I could certainly understand and sympathize with Jessie as she tries to figure out the intricacies of those jobs and the people she interacts with.
She also is determined to get her black belt in Karate, which I admire her for. It takes a lot of dedication to attain a black belt, and Jessie seems to have that in spades.
However, as I was reading this story, I couldn't help but feel that Jessie is actually suffering with depression. I don't know if I am reading too much between the lines into the story by saying this, but I had been reading a presentation my sister had asked me to look at on her behalf about depression.Read more ›
