This book is so vulnerable and real. It's so relatable that I can't help, but see myself in it and I think that's what makes the world of difference. The characters are real, they're relatable, their pain and feelings are relatable. You see your family and yourself in these situations. So much so, that that's what had me sobbing. The relationships between family and friends are closely knit and so wonderful. I absolutely fell in love with Bee's entire family!
But, let's talk about Bee for a second. Bee is a beauty. She shows doubt, her pain, her happiness, her guilt, and everything in between so wonderfully. She has fantastic inner dialogue that had me cracking up. Her thought process is just a prize. She's sarcastic to the point of being funny and her banter with Levi is just so cute.
Speaking of Levi, how incredibly adorable is he?! I want Levi. I mean it, I need Levi right this second. I want him to take me to Peterson's so we can enjoy some delicious donuts listening to music at midnight looking at the stars. Okay, maybe I don't because he belongs with Bee, but a girl can dream! Levi is selfless, kind, total dreamboat and all around one of the best guys I've read about that is just good. Good inside and out. <3
Now while I didn't really think this book wasn't too big on the conflict I can kind of appreciate that. It was more character driven. It was about Bee's journey with love and grieving. What Bee goes through I can only imagine the pain and heartbreak. I was sobbing from almost the very beginning because it hurt. But, the way Bee handles the situation made sense and I couldn't fault her at all. The way her family stick together and they have such a strong foundation of love is inspiring.
Plus, the ending?! I couldn't stop giggling because I was so gosh dang giddy! SO MANY FEELS!
I really don't know how Sierra Abrams did it but she had me sobbing and smiling at the same exact time. She broke my heart but then gave me a comforting hug. I am in love with Levi and Bee and this book.
I can't recommend this book enough. It's everything I love in a contemporary and I have a feeling it will be for you too. Recommend 100x!
Thank you to the publisher/author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All opinions are my own.
As soon as Sierra Abrams announced she was self-publishing her book, I added it to my TBR right away. I was so excited for The Color Project, and it did not disappoint!
Bee has just graduated high school and doesn’t know what she wants to do next. For now, she’s working a summer job at a florist shop and spending time with her family. When her car breaks down, she meets the new mechanic at the local shop, Levi, who wears brightly colored sweaters. Intrigued by this (and his pretty face), Bee finds out that Levi runs a charity called The Color Project. Bee proceeds to throw herself into this new organization, especially after she receives the news that her father has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
Family is the most important thing in Bee’s life. She’s close with her parents, older brother, and two younger sisters. It was so refreshing to see positive family relationships in a YA novel, something that I do not see too often. As someone who has close relationships with her parents and brother, I really appreciated seeing these positive relationships in Bee’s life play out.
If you’re a fan of slow-burn romances, you will love Bee and Levi’s story. They instantly connect when they meet, but they become friends first before pursuing any kind of romantic relationship. I loved that they took their time getting to know each other before jumping into a romance. It made their relationship and connection so much realer since they had a friendship, even though both of them were obviously attracted to the other. They took their relationship slowly and made sure to support the other, which is important. Levi was especially there for Bee and supported her during the hardest point in her life as she watched her father’s health fail.
The Color Project is actually a pretty long book for a YA contemporary, so I took my time reading it. However, just because I read it slowly, doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. In fact, I loved it! The first half of the novel is more light and fluffy as Bee and Levi get to know each other while the second half becomes more serious with Bee’s father’s diagnosis and deteriorating health. These two contrasting halves beautifully showcase life’s ups and downs, and even how there can still be little patches of happiness when life throws the worst at you. Like I said earlier, The Color Project is on the longer side. Even though I enjoyed the book, I do think it was a little too long and needed to be shortened.
Overall, The Color Project is a heartfelt debut novel full of family, friendship, and love—a must read for fans of Morgan Matson!
