How I got it?: ARC from Netgalley
Torrey Grey is famous. At least, on the internet. Thousands of people watch her popular videos on fashion and beauty. But when Torrey’s sister is killed in an accident — maybe because of Torrey and her videos — Torrey’s perfect world implodes.
Now, strangers online are bashing Torrey. And at her new school, she doesn’t know who to trust. Is queen bee Blair only being sweet because of Torrey’s internet infamy? What about Raylene, who is decidedly unpopular, but seems accepts Torrey for who she is? And then there’s Luis, with his brooding dark eyes, whose family runs the local funeral home. Torrey finds herself drawn to Luis, and his fascinating stories about El dio de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead.
As the Day of the Dead draws near, Torrey will have to really look at her own feelings about death, and life, and everything in between. Can she learn to mourn her sister out of the public eye?
I recibed this book as a ARC from netgalley in exchange for a honest review ❤
” when the moon shines bright, your fears will be few and only sweet dreams will come to you”
Meet Torrey Grey. Famous Beauty Guru from YouTube. She has the best friend, the perfect family, sits at the right table and has the required tall boyfriend. But one normal day of filming her new haul her life changes in ways she could have never imagined. Now she struggles with a broken family, new school, Luis the mysterious boy she can’t stop talking to and the worst: The last words she said that make her feel like everything is her fault. Pretty much her life is not what she wanted.
” I was never trapped inside”
I have to say, Torrey is not your typical, oh-im-nice-i-want-to-do-good type of character.No, Torrey was selfish at times, self-centered and she knew it. She was just her. And that was what I loved about her. You can see how she struggles with her old life and her new reality, how she realizes that some times things change and it’ s for the best, even if we don’t see it at the moment. By the end of the book I was tearing up from how different she was.
” When is that moment that the breath stops? How is taht decided? What happend?”
This book is about dealing with death, how our life change and twist and we have to realize how deal. How people who we thought were our “People” disappoint us, and the people who couldn’t be more different are the ones we need. How our future change and we discovered that taking a break can make you realize who you are. How every single thing we say has a meaning and we have to take advantage of our chances of saying what we mean because sometimes? we don’t have another chance; How some times we say things that fallows and make us regret it.
I loved this book, and I loved the ultimate message. which is for you to find out if you read it. It’s amazing. and is written in such a way that is so real; It describes how teen think , what is important to them and makes it more than you typical teen book. It makes you see things in a deeper perspective.
