      This book started out well.But then it turned too conscious worthy, trying to addressed political and racial questions on a level that was supposed to be higher but never really reached the mark.The dilemmas and problems were simplified and shallow without getting to any real resolutions The end results were a gazillion scenes with a bunch of people crying every time the heroine gave a speech And crying some over everything else.The horrible thing is, there were tear worthy situations in there, [...]

      I appreciate that the author did their research, but it was melodramatic, unbalanced, and forced The lack of a HEA also was annoying.This book started off interesting enough star athlete with obsessed parent is in love with his childhood friend Problem is, Scott s body is starting to fail him, and he s worried about whether Reyna will still like him if he can t be an athlete any Worse, the fact that he s white and she s mixed race complicates their attempts at a relationship, along with the usua [...]

      Never Again, ever ,ever again, will I read another of this author s work without a warning about how it ends This book was too depressing, left me sad and a little mad all day how could she do this, this is a YA book I will warn anyone I know who is like me about book endings not to come near this book My god how could she do this.This is no way a YA romance, it s like a YA doom and gloom I am sorry, but the characters who things should have worked out for didn t, the ones who didn t deserve sh [...]

      First, I bought this book after reading a short story about the two chartacters in the book, Scott Reyna, in the ebook Eternal Spring, which is a collection of short stories by different authors that s how much I liked these two characters Now, To readers please don t take the following in a negative view of my review for this book It s just the opposite, but I had to write it like thisG Ohh Myy Friggin Gosh Im so pissed off at pg164 At least on my kindle I couldnt help it, I had to start writin [...]

      This is the third book that I ve read by Leslie DuBois, and I think that she is the most amazing author ever Nothing Else Matters is told from two points, Scott Kincaid and Reyna Lewis Scott Kincaid is the main character of the story, he is the quarterback on the football team, and he is a Senior at Charleston Prep Reyna Lewis is Scott s best friend, and has been since the sixth grade she is super smart, and half black, half Puerto Rican We learn that Scott has been suffering from muscle spasms [...]

      I got this book with one of the free Kindle deals because I thought that it sounded really good I was not disappointed This was a very affecting story that brought me to tears yes, have your tissue box handy.This story tackles some really big issues such as prejudice issues at school and inter racism in romance as well as a disconnected and driven parent towards her children.Scott and Reyna have been friends since sixth grade, but as they grow older both realize that friendship has become love e [...]

      Nothing Else Matters is a story that evokes a lot of emotions while you read it Reyna and Scott are best friends, have been since they first met Scott s mother is a racist and is just too much to stomach Scott s mother doesn t seem to love or care anyone All she wants is to make her son into the best athlete ever She wants him to get to the Olympics and win the gold medal she never did She has another son who she doesn t get along with As a mother, character she s just dispicable Scott is someon [...]

      From Lovey Dovey BooksNothing Else Matters is a story you don t want to miss reading Interracial relationships in YA isn t as prevalent as I would like it to be, but I have to say the stories that are out there can t compare to Nothing Else Matters.Ms DuBois has written a story that doesn t let you go the moment you start reading I was really able to understand Scott s precarious situation and I wished I could swoop through the book to help him out His mother was pure evil and I m surprised she [...]

      Leslie DuBois s books always leave me shocked and reeling and La Cienega Just Smiled was no different.You know that parent that lives through their child The one that yells and screams at their kid for fumbling a pass or striking out You know the rabid parent at the games Scott s mom is like that She lost a gold medal in the Olympics to a black person and this is why, I think, she loathes African Americans and even says crap like this Black football players don t need any extra help They have ge [...]

      Wow This book was way emotional than anything I normally read and I wasn t expecting it The message was good, the romance was good but it was so dang sad that I want to go take a walk, stop world hunger, end poverty and donate to a blood drive The end completely and totally shocked me and I wanted it to keep going so badly that I think I tapped the page forward button on the kindle twenty times in hopes that there would be I am torn between a four star and five star review because the writing [...]

      I can t even give this book ONE star I didn t like it, but it goes much further than that I HATED this book I, as a Puerto Rican, feel insulted by this book If you re going to write about a place, and their people, DO YOUR GODDAMN RESEARCH We don t live in VILLAGES, we have TOWN We have pretty much every store and appliance Americans have This was just ridiculous But you know what This was enough for me to black list this book I m never going to read another book by this author, and I m telling [...]

      My first impression of this book was that it had the potential for an epic story line Star Football player, good girl from wrong side of tracks, racially charged prep school etc It started off great but as the story progressed, it got a little ridiculous Some examples Reyna and Scottie get married in hospital room one hour after he wakes up from coma Students seem to run school and what happens including all assemblies.Reyna seemed like an unreal character No bad days, bad feelings etc Racist mo [...]

      I wanted to see of what happened in the epic ending that no one expected How racism goes into play after the accident That could have been an epilogue I wanted Yes, sometimes this book is sappy Its teenage love, of course sometimes some teens get overly dramatic but that doesn t mean the love wasn t real I wouldn t down play the love between the main characters I wanted someone like, Reyna s father to slap some sense into Sam in the beginning and middle Stop trying to live out your dream throu [...]

      Nothing Else Matters reminded me of a certain book by Nicholas Sparks, but Leslie DuBois s writing style is similar to that of Jodi Picoult as she switched back and forth between POVs, takes on touchy issues, and takes a stab at a shocking twist of an ending Although I had a feeling that the ending was coming from very early on in the story, it still brought tears to my eyes when it happened because I became so attached to the characters Overall, I really liked this and I look forward to readin [...]

      This is the third book I read by Leslie DuBois, and I really enjoyed it Leslie DuBois writes about a inter racial relationship and it s affect in a racist town It takes the two main characters, Scottie and Reyna, and makes them face major life decision s at a young age Along the way Scottie and Reyna learn self worth and deep love NOTHING ELSE MATTERS is an emotional story, with twist and turns, and a surprise ending Readers who like Nicholas Sparks, Anita Shreve and Jodi Picoult will enjoy Lesl [...]

      Its basically a sad romantic story between Scott and Reyna as their relationship battels racial turmoil at school Scott s tyrannical and racist mother s obsession with his winninga gold medal and discovery of Scott suffering from a debilitating disease which could prove fatal if he continued to play in between it all.The author has used references to the story of Romeo and Juliet as indicative of an impending sad event.UmmI guess it was an ok read Perhaps sad romantic stories aren t really my ty [...]

      Once again an amazing book from this author It starts out as a regular ya book with the kind of young adults you basically expect but it then takes a turn into incredibly driven young adults who are faced with major life decisions, racial intolerance along with learning their self worth and a deeper love There were a few laughs and tears and some excellent characters in an emotional moving story.

      Wow I have very low expectations for this book but I was blown away I love that was portrayed was incredible Every feeling was described so well that you felt ever emotion that coursed through the characters Great writing Great story You will soar and swoon but also feel the pain of heartache.

      This is one of Leslie s best books to date It is a sweet little love story that also takes on serious topics like the racism that lurks behind the facade A community that seems to be very modern and accepting of all people starts showing cracks when the school s star athlete starts dating a black girl The story is beautifully written Way to go Leslie I am a fan

      SPOILERS AHEAD As a black girl who prefers but not demands white guys, I decided to find and read a book with main characters who were along those lines I never had before so I decided to change that Nothing Else Matters is the first book I have read and all I m going to say is this This book gave me hope,joy,excitement,ideas,love, made me incredibly happy, and finally broke my heart.

      There were moments in this book that I liked Overall though, I just found this book not happy I kept thinking it would get better, but it just didn t The ending was awful and left me feeling bad I m just not a fan of unhappy endings when I m reading.As far as content, there was some swearing, underage drinking and drugs, and sexual content.

      I just don t like sappy romances I had hopes that the underlying themes about Lupus and racial barriers would somehow save this story, but I was disappointed I would not recommend this book to anyone.

      This was an emotionally charged love story A modern day Romeo and Juliet with a twist The author did an excellent job of relaying this tale from both sides I am glad that I read Reyna and Scott s story.

      I really enjoyed this book There are a few serious events that take place in the book, but the author saw fit to amuse readers with the chapter surrounding Dumping Amber I got a really good laugh from that The ending was sad and really threw me for a loop as it will you Happy reading

      Considering this is of a teen love story it wasn t to bad for the age it was geared towards A love story that combines politics of school and race mixed with a mother who forcefully lives her dreams through her child Prepare for a surprise ending.
