Fridays: Kickass Heroine




Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…
That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.

I really like it. I love the girl, not so dreamy with the sky so huge. After you read the book, it fits.

characters 5 stars

Ms. Hoover creates the perfect characters.

Holder is the perfect male. Really he is hot and cold, sweet and tart, perfect!

Sky is such a strong female character, so brave, so so so amazing.

You can connect with them and love them.

Some pretty strong secondary characters as well.

plot 5 stars

The plot created by the author is amazing. Until half of the book, I was thinking it was ok. After that Ms. Hoover threw in a twist and BAM. It explodes! Really this was AWESOME. I wasn't expecting. I could never have guessed any of it. PEFERCT! AMAZING!

The story is not easy to read, it's powerful, it's dark, it's sad and happy, it's good and bad.

This book keeps you guessing until last minute and makes you want more until the end.

So well crafted! Masterpiece!

freshness 5 stars

Ms. Colleen Hoover has presented me with one of the most original plots ever. So unexpected, that couldn't believe for a while what I was reading. Amazing!

audible 4 stars

I have enjoyed the narrator's voice, but she was a bit slow. I had to read this on 1.25, which made it perfect.

Impressions and Opinion

I haven't read anything before from Ms. Hoover and I was shocked. Now I'm adding her to my author's to follow list.

The characters of this book are amazing and the plot is very well conceived. You find to loopholes in it, everything was well explained.

If you enjoy an amazing book with a few tears now and then, you should read this and be AMAZED!

“The sky is always beautiful.Even when it's dark or rainy or cloudy,it's still beautiful to look'll be there no matter what...and I know it'll always be beautiful.”
