I absolutely love Tamara's books, so when I heard she was coming out with another contemporary, I was thrilled! I really enjoyed Little Do We Know, thanks to Disney for sending this to me for review, and this fact does not change my rating or my review.
Little Do We know stars two protagonists in alternating chapters. We have Hannah, who is a devout Christian, who has never had her faith shaken... until now, and Emory, who lives next door. These two girls have been best friends their entire lives ...more
