      One of his better booksry seriously stageda teenage girl is pregnant (raped by her father of step-father)is story is about this girl and a boy that helps her make an escape and a transition into some kind of sub-normality of life or as much as can be expected in this kind of book. Still has trademark hints of Jack Weyland's cheesy wit and sense of humor. One of his more sad and dramatic additions to his great repertoire of books definitely.

      The book "Sara Whenever I Hear Your Name" by Jack Weyland is definitely a must read! It begins as the new girl, Sara, moves next door to Travis, who thinks that she is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. At the time they are both 15-almost 16. Travis convinces Sara to go on a hike with him, while during it Sara continually makes comments about how he will soon grow to hate her. (THE NEXT SENTENCE IS NOT A SPOILER, IT IS LITERALLY STATED IN THE FIRST CHAPTER OR TWO) He finds out that Sara h [...]

      When this book was given to me, I have to admit, I wasn't exactly ecstatic. It looked like a fluffy, boring, chick-flick of a story; my every instinct was against actually reading it. I instantly closed myself off, assuming this book would just be another cheesy, mediocre LDS-authored type of a read. Finally, boredom forced me to, reluctantly, start reading. By chapter three, I was still convinced that this would turn out to be an unrealistic, superficial, Anita Stansfield-esque book, (no offens [...]

      I read this book when I was in high school. I can still remember it very well. I think the book has stuck with me so well through the years because of the topic. Sara was an abused child who went to stay with a foster family during her pregnancy. Her foster family is the next door neighbor to the other main character (sorry can't remember his name). I remember thinking that the characters were very powerful for me, at least at the time. I was a sheltered child who thought that things like that d [...]

      Sarah is a mysterious girl that has moved next door. As her 15 year old neighbor, Travis, gets to know her, he struggles with his growing feelings for her, tries to create a friendship with her, as he wars with the anguish of her condition. You see, Sarah was molested by her step father, and is pregnant with his baby. A heartbreaking story that finds hope in the end.I read this book for the first time when I was twelve, and although the subject matter was a little serious, it truly made me think [...]

      My copy of this book now needs its pages flattened because of water damage from all of my crying. This book really inspired me. This book is about a girl named Sara who was abused so much by her step-father that she becomes pregnant. She is sent to live with Foster Parents who live next door to a young boy her age named Travis. Sara and Travis become instant friends and despite the neighborhood's teasing and cruelty towards Sara, Travis sicks close by her side. Travis helps Sara learn about the [...]

      This was just a excellent read. It made me smile, cry, and yell. The emotions in this book were intense, and it was just so real. You could see it happening to somebody.Some things in this book made me go 'Ick'. though.1. The grammer. It switched off between correct grammer and not-correct gramer(Is that right?). 2. THE ENDING. The ending made me want to SCREAM. I HATED the ending. I DID NOT like this stupid 'Loren' guy!!! And ISPISE. Kathy with Travis. Grr, stupid Kathy!Other than that, its a w [...]

      Weyland tackles the sensitive subject of sexual abuse in a family with this novel. This book teaches the values of compassion and loving one another. The consequences of gossip and quick judgement are also present throughout this read. This is another Weyland book that would have been given 4 stars had I read it when I was a teenager. Note to parents: This story begins after the sexual abuse has taken place and Sara is placed with a loving foster family. There are no inappropriate scenes. Howeve [...]

      I want to explain my rating on this book. It isn't an amazing book in the world of lit, but it did touch me deeply when I was young and trying to become the person I wanted to be. It takes a very hard subject (sexual abuse in a family) and tells the story in a sensitive way. It left me with hope and a great desire to never judge people. We never know what goes on behind closed doors so it is best to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

    13. Corinna on said:

      Very mediocre. I read another book by Weyland, Charlie, in high school 20 years ago and loved it. I don't know if I was just not nearly as picky or if it was because I was less mature but this book didn't come close to the quality that I remembered from Charlie. I'm sure that because the book is quite dated that didn't help either. It was just okay to me, and often very cheesy, like a 1980's Mormon after school special.

    14. Jennifer on said:

      This book was given to me for Christmas one year when I was a teenager. It was so touching and so honest, it made me cry. I wanted there to be a happy ending for Travis and Sara, butwellad it and find out. I did not understand the ending to much when I was younger, but I understand maybe why it ended like it did.

    15. Heidi-Marie on said:

      One of my favorites because it spoke volumes to me. The subject was so sad, but something that happens. But the most poignant scene was in the hospital. In spite of trials and actions taking away your agency, there are still some feelings and emotions you will not be able to suppress. And I liked that the ending was not the typical Weyland ending.

    16. Alicia on said:

      It's really good, and it's about this girl who has been sexually abused by her stepdad and wants to press charges on him once she found out he had made her become pregnant, and she is only 15.This book, has trail, disappointments, and jealousy. This book will leave you speachless, you will be laughing, and crying. I suggest you read it. I found Jack Weylands books very dignafied.

    17. Melanie on said:

      I read this book back in High School. Loved it then, but not so much now. It's a little bittersweet, and a quick read. It only took me three hours total from start to finish. I'm beginngin to think all his books have a sad undertone to them.

    18. Dawnetta on said:

      Most Weyland books tend to be written to the purpose of some teen hardship. Because of this he usually deals with very real and very hard topics for teens. Teens need these issues discussed, some earlier then others. Sara is about sexual assault, teen pregnancy, and adoption.

    19. Tif on said:

      Okay this book stunned me. I mean, this is Mormon fiction, right? It was poignant and thought-provoking. I love that things work out, but not in the way you think and not in the easy way. Story of incest, teen pregnancy, forgiveness, and living happily ever after.

    20. Katie on said:

      I have read this book too many times to count. Besides Charly this is probably my favorite book that I've read of jack Weylands. It always brings tears to my eyes at the end, and just really touches me for some reason.

    21. Sandy on said:

      I loved this book. I was really into Jack Weyland books when I was in high school, and this book made me think about the types of judgments those in the LDS faith are quick to make (such as assuming Sara was pregnant because she was promiscuous).

    22. Kimberly on said:

      This is, by far, my favorite Jack Weyland novel. It's so beautiful, poignant, and heartbreaking - yet hopeful. I give Weyland major kudos for writing about this uncomfortable topic with grace and love.

    23. Hilary on said:

      I know I read this in high school. Can't remember much about it. May have to read it again.

    24. Angie on said:

      I read this book as a teenagerd cried (as a teenager, Weyland books made me cry a lot an adult, they are a little sappy). This is a great book about the effects of sexual abuse.

    25. John Hilton on said:

      My all-time favorite Jack Weyland book (and I've read almost all of them). I cried when I read it as a 15 year old.

      As an emotional teen, I loved this book. I still remember the way it made me feel reading this book.
