Dec 28, 2011Jamie Blair is one of the most talented writers I know. I had the privilege of being one of the first readers of this novel and loved it in rough draft forms. This is one of those novels you NEVER FORGET. It will stay with you. It will stand out. I can't even compare it to another YA book because the plot is so fresh. I would like to see this as a movie one day!

Dec 14, 2012I don't get the ending at all. If I got a paperback, I would be thinking someone ripped several pages from it. Ehh...

Dec 01, 2013What the fUCK was that.
Dec 28, 2011Fabulous and exciting debut! It has everything: romance, suspense, drama--all the biggies!

Jan 01, 2012Ahhh I beta-read this book in its early stages, and it was amazing even then. I cannot wait to see how it has changed and grown in the past two years. Congrats, Jamie!! So excited to buy your book!
Dec 28, 2011Read the early drafts and LOVED. <3 Although I'm not sure what the newest version looks like, I'm fairly certain it'll be more badass than before. I know how hard Jamie's worked on this, and I'm very proud of her. Can't wait to own a copy. :)
Sep 03, 2013I think I'm done. It's nothing against the book but something about this story isn't clicking with me. I tried.
Jun 05, 2017I have to give this a 3.5. The ending made me furious. I stayed up late reading this because I had to know what happened to Faith aka Leah. The teenage girl who ran away with a baby that wasn't hers to save her from a life of hell with her unfit mother. This plot was unlike anything I'd ever read, and that in itself is impressive.
Nov 10, 2016This book was amazing right up until the end! I loved this book and the whole story behind it but the end made me very mad because it was a cliff hanger and there isn't even a second book!
Sep 09, 2013Wow... This book is nerve wracking and heart wrenching..... And then you have to wait for the next book at a momentous part!
Mar 25, 2013Lately I seem to be reading a lot of books with a solid premise, but the execution is somehow lacking. Sadly, Leap of Faith definitely falls into that category. I thought this was a great idea for a story, but theres pretty much nothing in this book that I believed, bought into, or related to.
Sep 09, 20134.5 STARS!
Sep 11, 2013I hate my life. I want out of it so bad, I think I might die sometimes.
May 16, 2013I'm certainly not the biggest lover of Contemporary Young Adult novels, and that leads to the question about why I even read them then. Well, it's like looking for a diamond in a mountain of coal - I WANT to find the good ones, the ones that I can love and make me want to read more of the genre.

She feels justified in running away with the baby girl she calls Addie. Faith knew as soon as she saw the tiny face on the ultrasound pics that she would take off and try to save that baby, so after she steals her mom's car and leaves Ohio for Florida, she learns the hard way just how often babies cry and through trial and error how to feed and care for Addie.
Apr 10, 2013Wow, this is a powerful story. I completely felt for Faith and her upbringing. Although I will admit at first it was out of spite for her Mom that she was having her stop smoking and drugs while pregnant, but I saw that her heart really opened and changed when she heard the heartbeat and saw the baby on ultrasound.

Oct 01, 2013Leap of Faith was a great book. Leah/ Faith, of age 17, did something that no other teenager would think of doing, kidnapping a baby. It changed her life for about three months until she could not take it anymore and gave up. I really enjoyed the way both characters were interpreted by the author. Going from how Faith's personality really was to how she ended up changing to.
Jan 01, 2012A novel that jumps from newspaper headlines onto the pages of a well-written story.
