Let's all take a minute to appreciate how amazing this cover is! The story inside is even better! Now, let that sink in.
Alexis is grieving. Alexis lost her best friend, her sister in a drunk driving accident. She hasn't gotten over it, she hasn't moved on, and she doesn't want to keep living. Her mom has finally had enough and forces her out of the house. That decision changes her life, forever.
"My heart stuttered to hear him call me Lex. My family always called me Alexis. I was the good girl. I was predictable. I did what was expected of me. But Lex sounded like someone who knew how to have fun. Lex sounded like she tested boundaries. Lex sounded like someone Sam would have hung out with. I wouldn't mind being a different person. I wouldn't mind being Lex."
Liam is the boy your daddy doesn't want you to date. Liam is the boy every girl dreams of. Liam is my latest book boyfriend. Liam has a rough life. He supports his mom, he works hard, and he gets into trouble. Liam is also the breath of fresh air that Lex needs.
"I decided then and there that Liam O'Connell should come with a warning label - or maybe several.
Warning: Not approved by parents. Warning: May cause heart palpitations. Warning: Magic lips may result in difficulty breathing. Warning: Intense feelings may cause panties to burst into flames.
Because seriously, he was a supernova. He burned brilliant and fierce, and I knew I didn't have much time with him."
The Color of Us is a roller-coaster ride of emotions. This story gives you hope, breaks your heart, and puts you back together all at once. I laughed. I cried. I swooned. I loved it! One of my top reads this year. This was my first read by these authors and it definitely won't be my last! I truly can't express how much I loved this story.
