There are some familiar elements- that's not a bad thing - in fact it made my hair stand on end to see Vivian and her friend Abby in high school facing the usual angst that life dishes out plus being the target of Trista and the bully elite. When Vivian displays some rather remarkable powers that's when the chills start and I got shades of Stephen Kings Carrie.
Fortunately we have Easton Garrett and Cooper McNeal to ground them. These fellows are almost unbelievable. That might be why it takes the girls so much time to figure out that they are real.
Just when things begin to look like they are getting better Vivian discovers her families dark secrets and it supplies some answers to some rather frightening memories she's been having. Vivian is beside herself trying to keep her secrets and live a normal life. But, prom is on the way and we all know what that could lead to.
Because she's been using her powers- even though its sparingly- she's running the potential for putting a pin on the map for some very bad people.
By the time things get rough we have moved on into something similar to Stephen Kings FireStarter and the feeling that this could get really bad.
And though I mentally draw these similarities Vivian and the people surrounding her are nothing like the characters in those other books. Andrea Murray uses her knowledge to draw us into the lives of some convincing teens trying to deal with their normal lives while they get thrust into something that is far from normal.
By the end of the story you will definitely want to know what is going to happen in the next of the trilogy.
Told exclusively from the protagonist's POV, Vivid keeps you guessing about Vivian's origins and what she can do. The ugly world of her high school existance is nicely described and makes you wish you could do what Vivan can when a group of bully girls single Vivan out for special treatment.
At first I was thinking that this was some kind of retooled Carrie but that initial impression passes quickly as the story moves forward.
I loved it how Vivian told her story. It was so fun and made me smile. It was like close friend telling you their story. And I loved Easton. He seems such a perfect guy. It`s almost hard to believe he is real, but yet here he is.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was fun and sad, intense and real. In the end I`m left with secrets I want to be revealed and questions about how the story goes on and what happens next. I would love to read sequels.
I was given this book in exchange for honest review (David Estes Fans and YA Book Lovers Unite! group and the author).
Vivid was written for Young Adult, but I'm 35 (Shh...don't tell!) and I still loved it! It was well written, with enough action to keep you interested throughout the story.
And be prepared, once you finish you will want to grab the next book Vicious, because there are some unfinished business.
So if your thirty or twenty... Pick up this book and give it a try, I'm glad I did:)
Would I recommend this book??: Absolutely!!!!!!!
