I am so incredibly excited to introduce this next book and author-- Torched by Andrea Colt was my most recent favorite indie find. You ALL should read this book!
Goodreads Book Description: Cheerleader Rose
Whitfield's senior year goes up in smoke when she's framed for arson.
Sure that the culprit is her neighbor Paxton, with whom she's been
feuding since middle school, she sets out to clear her name and take
Paxton down hard--not necessarily in that order.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I was asked by the author to
read and review this book. Boy, am I glad she sent me a copy! I
wholeheartedly give this book a full five stars, no question.
by Andrea Lynn Colt is a YA contemporary novel that I stayed up all
night reading (in PDF on the computer no less, which I've NEVER done)
because it was so riveting. The book stars Rose, a mean girl in her
prime, head cheerleader extraordinaire, who seems to have the perfect
life-- the perfect best friend, the perfect boyfriend, the perfect car--
you get the picture. Senior year seems like it is going to be the best
ever. The only thing marring its perfection is her prank war with her
boyfriend Ryan's best friend, Paxton. Then someone torches Ryan's family
boat, and all clues point to Rose. Suddenly, her perfect life isn't so
perfect anymore, and she struggles with herself to see the person she
has truly become over the past few years as well as to find out who
committed the crime and set her up.
I absolutely adored this
book. The pacing was terrific, it was well written with a lot of style
and wit. As you can tell from above, I devoured it from cover to cover,
even though I still didn't have a comfortable reading format, which says
a lot about the book. The characters were terrific, and Rose while not a
pleasant character has redeemability, which is essential for the plot.
Paxton smoulders in the background, and other characters end up
delightfully three dimensional-- something I absolutely loved.
I was incredibly impressed with this first novel of Colt's and I'll be
following her career closely from here on out. Everyone should read this
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow and the day after to see the interview with Andrea and also, Rose, the main character of Torched!
