Simple and sweet

Thank you to Suzana Thompson for giving me this audiobook in return for an honest review. 

Tomboy is the story of Cameron, better known as Cam, the girl who has always been 'one of the boys'. The only person who hasn't seen her as that is her brother's best friend, Jake. As she gets older she also begins to see him in a new light. 

I loved the characters in this story, Cam was quite a strong character in her own, not falling into the girly role even after developing a romantic interest like a lot of tomboys in stories do. She just develops hormones and grows up, and Jake is an adorable character who likes her for that reason. I also liked the other characters such as her best friend and her brother.

Some parts of this story, especially dialogue, didn't seem to flow very easily in my opinion. Sarah Sampino does a great job of it however and really gets inside the mind of the characters, making it a really easy story to listen to.

I'd really recommend this to teenage romance fans. It's great for young adults and a nice easy read.

Sigh, Teenage Relationships

Who doesn't love a little teenage angst?! Cam is a tomboy and a girl after my own heart! I loved Cam and Jake together. They were absolute perfection! Sarah Sampino's narration was spot on! I enjoyed this book!

Tomboy

There was no real connection to it and It seemed rushed. I was still happy that Cam and Jake ended up together after everything.

The author has a wonderful way of telling a beautiful story.

Sweet young adult story

Cameron is a tomboy, like sports and most of her friends are boys. When her twin brother's best friend Jake is caught in her bedroom with another girl, she becomes annoyed, but is it because he was in her bed? Or is it because it wasn't her? This is sweet story of growing up, self realization and figuring out who you really are. I enjoyed Cam as she matured and realized what life would have in store for her. Her journey is one that I found easily relatable, and I fell back into that time of insecurity as a teen. With his family life and his mature outlook, Jake is more complex than I expected. Together, we get a little teenage angst and enjoy watching their relationship grow as they get older. Breakout character is Kyle, Cam's best friend. What a great personality he brings in!

Sarah Sampino's performance of Tomboy is wonderful. I love her voice. She easily modeled her characters with that teen angst using voices that were a good fit for the age of Cam and Jake. I like her pace and style of narration, giving my ears hours of enjoyment.

High School Memories Stirred

Suzana Thompson does an excellent job of capturing the coming of age emotions in Tomboy. Cam has always one of the guys but little does she know her twin brother's best friend, Jake, has more than friendly feelings for her. Sparks fly when she catches Jake in a compromising position in her room. As a tomboy, romance and all the trappings of being a girl have never appealed to Cam. Her parents' divorce and her absent father color her reaction to relationships but her mother is still hopeful for a lifelong love. While Jake has been waiting his entire life for Cam to be on the same page, the young man is what all mature book boyfriends should aspire to be: patient, romantic, possessive, loving, and passionate. While the road is sometimes rocky on the way to their relationship, Cam and Jake's story ends in a very satisfying way.
Ms. Thompson capture's Cam's tomboy traits well, I grew up as one so I could relate to her character, and being blindsided by a friend who has romantic feeling? She hit that shocker dead on, as well as the drama of the high school friends and the catty girls who try to break up couples. Ms. Thompson's characters are realistic, the situations real life and the story well paced. There are great family moments with the mom, great banter between the siblings, and with the couple. I'd definitely read more by this author.
Sarah Sampino does an excellent job bringing these characters to life. Her voice is smooth and when Jake was teasing Cam I could hear the smirk in her voice. I'll be watching for more books narrated by her.

YA romance

This was a new author for me. I enjoyed the young love coming of age romance. She discovers her hormones and her brothers best friend all at the same time.

Another Great YA

I've listened to a few stories by this author and she never disappoints. This was another great YA romance that reminds me why I have a special place in my heart for these types of stories. There is nothing better than a well written story of young love. The Cam is hilariously clueless but I love that she has to confront her feelings and grow as a character.

Another great performance by this narrator! The narrator did a fabulous job bringing out Cam's innocence and awkwardness.

Cute

A cute story about a late bloomer who suddenly grows into the woman others have takes about. She doesn’t know how to handle her new feelings or the new attention she’s getting.

I would’ve liked a few more details, but there wasn’t a lot of angst so it made for a short sweet read.

Wonderful YA Story

This is the first story I have listened written by this author . The story was interesting and very engaging. It’s such a sweet YA story of growing up and realizing yourself and what life has stored for you. I loved both Cam’s and Jake’s characters. Sarah Thompson has done a phenomenal job with narration and kept me totally hooked. She captured all the emotions and angst to the T . Definitely an enjoyable listening experience.

Good contemporary YA story

Tomboy is a cute, typical high school love story, with a bit of angsty drama. I thought the story was good, but a little predictable. But it was a good escape for a few hours. I wasn't a fan of the narrator's voice, but the performance was ok.
