I am also impressed how the cyber-bulling came up and how that was dealt with. I did love the other characters in the book. How they all wanted to help Starla. There is so much good in this story, and also showing the diversity and the sameness of others. I laughed and cried while reading this story, It is a great story to read.
I did receive this book in an exchange for and honest review.
The author was kind enough to send me an Ecopy in exchange for an honest review. This book is so good; it had me on an emotional roller-coaster.
Starla had a freak accident that left her hand deformed, but she has overcomes it and has an amazing boyfriend Jared and an awesome best friend Ally. Everything is going great until the night she overhears her mom talking on the phone finds out they're moving and in the middle of the school year. Everything is going great for Starla in her new school until she finds herself the center of attention brought on by a cyberbully that ruins her relationship with Jared, it is then her new friends decide to launch a counter attack to try and reveal the cyber bullies identity; part of the plan involves Starla and her new friend Chase faking a relationship, but soon Starla starts falling for Chase and the plan starts to backfire on her.
This book was not what I expected; I fell in love with it and all the amazing characters immediately. I loved T.C. Booths writing style it just sucked you into the story. I loved Starla’s character development throughout the book; she really learned to accept her flaws and to stand up for herself. Now let’s take a minute to talk about the perfection that is Chase; I loved everything about him, he was every girl's dream guy and so swoon worthy. I also really liked the subjects the story centered on, cyber bullying which is very common nowadays and that you should never think less of yourself because you're different. Chase and Starla were perfect for each-other he understood her so well and always put her first. T.C. put me through an emotional roller-coaster she made me laugh, cry and cry of happiness and I would ride that roller-coaster all over again! This book was absolute perfection and everyone should pick it up.
I am a sucker for differently abled protagonists and this book is based on a heroine, Starla who has a deformed hand caused by an accident. Another reason I picked up this book was because I was taking a break from paranormal and fantasy genres and wanted a contemporary read. Am I glad I did! Because this book is not just the usual teen book but much more than that.
The blurb mislead me a bit because it totally talks about Starla's change to a new school. So I was expecting her to be enrolled in the start itself. But the book begins from how great is Starla's life at the present school and about her friends. A couple of chapters flew by me as I got to know Starla, Ally and Jared.
Starla is characterised well in the story. She seems to be adjusted to her new life but then the move brings out all the insecurities especially because of the cyber bully. She shows strength of character and seems to be a well loved girl. And another thing which really made me love her was that she wasn't a whiny person and though she is a teen, she is mature beyond her years. Actually I felt that most of the characters didn't read as teens at all. They were wise beyond their age and showed a level headedness not associated with teenagers. The characters were well developed and kept my interest in their antics. I got to say that the side characters, Ally, Maggie , Rayne and Jake supported Starla and Chase beautifully throughout the book. And finally about Chase, now if I can find a guy like him, I am all set for life! He is one of the few good guys though he has a love for a bit extreme sports. He complements Starla very well.Read more ›
