      The Best Part of Hello
      A Young Adult Novel
      By: Hollie Armstrong
      Narrated by: Sarah Sampino

      This is a terrific young adult novel, the storylines and characters are interesting and well developed. Hollie Armstrong captures the essence of the teenage mind in this wonderful story she created. She presented issues teens face, peer pressure, issues with friends and then thrown into a situation where they have to be responsible adults. Kayla, seemed mature for her age, as did Evan. The two became unlikely allies in the tragic situation they landed in as well as when Kayla finds out her long term boyfriend is a liar and a cheat. I liked the chemistry between the two. I really liked these two characters and her friend Sophie too. I also liked how they stepped up to help others when many did not or could not. Hollie Armstrong put a lot in to this story, drama, angst, some thrillling, suspenseful moments, she also lightened it up with some fun moments. Loved the friendships and romance she brought to the story as well. A great YA, enemies to friends to lovers. She also did a great job covering PTSD after they returned home. Thanks for this great story Hollie Armstrong, it is a heartfelt & entertaining one. It is a great accomplishment to be published at such a young age, I hope you keep it coming.

      I listened to the Audible edition, narrated but the talented Sarah Sampino. She performs the voices of all of the characters, gives each their own unique voice and personality. She does a wonderful job covering both the male and female parts as well as the different accents. She brought a lot to this story, including heart. She is entertaining and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for another great listen🎧

      This was my first Hollie Armstrong’s book. This is a great, sweet and cute YA Romance. Kayla and Evan’s story is well written, fun, action packed, and original, filled with twists and turns. Their journey is captivating! I absolutely love the ending. Sarah Sampino did an amazing job with the narration. All characters were easy to distinguish. I enjoyed it!
