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.
The Color Project by Sierra Abrams was one of my most anticipated books of 2017. Thankfully, Sierra the loveliest of people sent me an early copy and damn did I burn through this one. The Color Project was absolutely stunning.
- The characters were so so precious. Bee, our main character was such a star. One of my favorite things about Bee was how easily I related to her. I saw myself in her which is a pretty fantastic feat for any author. Levi was also a precious heart with style.
- The writing was superb. I was nervous going in to reading this because I wanted to like this so badly, I would have felt awful if I had to write a bad review for it. Especially since I consider Sierra a friend. Thankfully, I didn’t just like it, I loved it. The writing was spectacular and fuzzy and happy.
- The plot was fabulous. There were so many levels, sad parts, fuzzy parts. Ugh, I was basically squealing the entire time while I was reading this book. If a book has me grinning, it’s good.
- The Color Project was basically perfect, the only thing I have to complain about would probably be the unrealistic settings and happenings. However, I feel like it is necessary in order to create the perfect fuzzy contemporary Sierra was going for.
The Color Project was certainly one of the best contemporary books I’ve read this year. It was magical, stunning and beautiful on every single level. The relationship between Levi and Bee had me grinning like a maniac. Read The Color Project if you’re looking for something to get you out of a book slump. Read The Color Project if you want to be amazed.
