Frances Hoelsema about this book: Growing Up Neighbors embarks the reader on a journey. Inside the brilliantly-written pages, the reader follows Nicholas and Deborah as they grow up together across the street from one another. There are many ups and downs that life throws their way, but they only tighten the bond these two share. However, as adults out of high school, a major tragedy takes place. Will it force the two characters to realize they may have deeper feelings for one another? Or will it perhaps be too late?
This novel is a clean, believable, sweet romance that is perfect for hopeless romantics of all ages. In the end, what readers need to know is that love always wins. Growing Up Neighbors will leave you feeling warm on the inside, knowing that love was victorious.
Behind the story: Growing Up Neighbors took almost two years to complete, from written outlines and notes to the actual publishing date in November 2014. Something neat about this novel is that parts of it are based off of the author's own love story! Her husband grew up across the street from her, and March of 2016 they will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary!
