In this story, we get to learn more about Lena's past - and so does Lena! There's quite a mystery surrounding her family and twins, and I loved this mystery component to the series.
It's really hard for me to choose which book I liked better, but I'd have to say...it's this one.
Lena and her sister Ella head off to California for the summer, coping with the separation of their parents. In addition to dealing with these changes and growing their sister bond, they have a major mystery on their hands...and then there's also a rekindled relationship with Lena's ex.
There was so much going on in this book, but the pacing was perfect and I was drawn in from the start.
I love Taylor's books! They have so much drama and spunk, but also great, well-developed characters behind the story itself. I felt so attached to Lena and Violet in book one, and I really hope for more in this series! It's totally addicting.
“With the drama of the school year behind them, sisters Lena and Ella Snotty are off to California for the summer…
Their parents have recently separated, and the sisters are becoming closer, though Lena can’t get past wanting to know more about their fractured family. While unpacking, Lena finds a photo of their mother with the twins she gave up for adoption, and notices something very strange.
In the photo, there’s a man she’s never seen before…
Assuming it must be the man who adopted the twins, Lena and Ella set out to find him so they can meet their younger siblings. As they search, Lena reconnects with Carter Anderson, the boy she dumped abruptly the year before, causing her to wonder whether or not she should return to Virginia in the fall.
Did the man in the picture truly adopt the twins—or is John Symmes someone else altogether?
A journey through the past might just change their lives forever…”
The second book follows the sisters Lena and Ella Snotty who are off to California for the summer to visit their mom who left their father to go back home to live with her parents. Leaving Virginia for the summer is bittersweet to them, they have made amazing friends in Violet and Blake and they feel like they are going to miss their new home a lot. Lena is just not sure she is ready to go back and face all she left in California.
Seeing their mom again is amazing but Lena cannot help to see the sadness lurking in her eyes. They go get settled in at their grandparents’ house and start unpacking. Lena finds a piece of paper poking out behind the dresser in the attic room she is staying in, pulling it out she discovers a picture of her mother holding twins standing with a strange man. Thinking that this is the man who adopted the children she gave up shortly before they moved to Virginia. She and Ella never even got to see their siblings. She ran to show the photo to Ella and they devise a plan to find the man in the photo so they can meet their long lost siblings.
“Do you recognize him?” She asked me, eyebrows furrowed.
I shook my head no. “He’s got to be the guy who adopted the twins. Why else would he be in the picture?”
Ella shrugged in response, staring at the front of the photo again. I stood in silence for a moment as she sat still on her bed, just holding the picture and frowning down at it.”
Lena and Ella take the photo to their grandma and grandpa who act like they have no clue who the man in the picture is and redirect them into doing other things for them, running errands and things, trying to distract them. But the girls will not be distracted. Except for by one thing, Lena’s ex-boyfriend Carter. Lena is trying desperately to not run into him, she is just not ready to face him yet, not after how she broke up with him before she left for Virginia. Until that happens however she is going to continue trying to figure out who this mystery man is at no expense. The girls come up with the plan to get their mom and grandparents out of the house for a while so they can do some snooping. Sending their grandma and mom out on a spa day and their grandpa out to go golfing, the girls go snooping in their mother’s bedroom.
The girls find the name of the man they are looking for but only his first name. So they start going out more often as well as continue their snooping every chance they get. They are reading their moms journal when she catches them in the act one day, after that things get crazy. Their mother has a breakdown, Lena runs into Carter again and they find out the man’s full name. Will their mom get better, will Lena and Carter get back together or does he hate her for the way she treated him, will they get to meet their younger twin siblings? Must read to find out how this one ends!!
I was kindly given a copy of Taylor Henderson’s Scarlet Awakening in exchange for this review.
Scarlet Awakening is the second of the Sweet Secrets series, the first being Better Than Revenge which you can read my review of here: https://diaryofabookblogger.wordpress... .
Where Better Than Revenge is told from Violet’s point of view, Scarlet Awakening is told from Lena’s. The start of this book refers a lot to the first one, and since it was a while since I started the series I did struggle to remember what they were referring to. But it all came together eventually and I'm glad because I was reminded of how much fun that Mean Girls style read was! So, I’d recommend re-reading Better Than Revenge before starting Scarlet Awakening.
Scarlet Awakening was a really sweet and fun YA read, covering teen issues from family to romance to change. Lena’s relationship with her little sister Ella was beautiful and admirable, and the girls’ coming to terms with what they found out was mature, too.
I loved both the story and the characters and they come together perfectly, hence is rate Scarlet Awakening 4* and recommend it to young readers, around 13-18yrs.
Thank you to Taylor for the review opportunity and I wish her all the best with the success of this book.
