Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Summer Read If Only You Knew is a perfect summer read: light, straightforward, non-threatening – and yet with plenty of depth and complexity to chew on. I'm past its target audience age, but I still found it a lot of fun. Mags Storey is a Canadian author!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT! The novel “If Only You Knew” is a witty, entertaining book, and a highly satisfying read. It was fun to read how the author unfolded the main character’s (Jo’s) triumphs and tragedies during her summer when she lives with her cousin Kat. The supporting characters of Kevin and Sam posse some interesting interactions throughout the book, and there are a few unexpected twists and situations that happen with them in the story line. What I loved about the novel is the various dimensions the characters have. Jo is originally positioned as someone who is searching for some answers and directions in her life. During the course of the novel, she discovers more about herself, what defines her and what is truly important to her. In addition, there were several situations and circumstances that I found undeniably hillarious and found myself laughing out loud, or smiling from the fun-ness of the situation. Overall, “If Only You Knew” is a very enjoyable read, one that I enjoyed so much, I had a hard time putting the book down before finishing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positively, completely, and eternally fantastic!...to say the least. The book broke beyond the superficial teenage books today, and broke past the consuming depths and extreme boredom of Christian fiction for teens. I didn't feel the usual dutiful reluctance to read a Christian book, but more felt a dutiful reluctance to put it down. The book is romantic without any ridiculous cheese or unneeded rated-R scenes...the book is pure in more ways than one, while still retaining toe-curling excitement and thrill. Jo is every woman, Lisa exists in everyone's lives, and Sam is the perfect, yet unpredictable and, at times, unreliable prince. I loved the book because of its diversity, relateability, and inability to ever be considered boring.
