I am waiting to read The Color Project by Sierra Abrams.
Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.
Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.
When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
First, the cover is simple, but beautiful. Second, I’ve heard many amazing things about this book. Many are squealing for the realistic, slow-burn romance. People keep saying her writing is quick and charming. Sierra also fills the pages with emotion and cuteness. There are close relationships between family and friends, something you don’t always see in YA. According to readers, the ending wraps up the book very well. The only downside I’ve seen from reviews is consistency issues in the novel. Therefore, I’m so excited to give this book a place on my bookshelf! August 17, 2017 is coming up fast, and I can’t wait!
