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.
Firstly omg this book cover is BEAUTIFUL! So beautiful in fact I can forgive my auto correct for trying to add a U into Color. Where do I even start?! The gold foiling, the flowers, the colors! I am so glad this book is just as beautiful on the inside as it is the out.
The Color Project is esentially a story about Bee, her loves, her family, discovering what she wants to do. Bee’s first summer after school she doesn’t really know what she wants to study or do so she starts a job at a florist, quickly discovering her love for flower arrangement and creating different combos. Bee’s part of a largish family and adored them all!
MORE PARENTS IN YA PLEASE AND THANK YOU! Bee’s family is amazing, give me all the supportive, caring Brothers. I absolutely adored Bee’s brother and their friendship, they were really there for each other no matter the problem and their relationship felt really genuine.
There is no shortage of emotion in this whole book, the love interest runs a charity that helps anyone in need in the community, Bee’s parents are adorable and communicative (with each other at least) Bee and her best friend have a long distance relationship at the moment but the girl love was my jam.
I admit the second half of the book broke me, I stayed awake till 1am on a work day sobbing quietly so I wouldn’t wake by partner up, it just hurt me so much and I loved it. PSA be careful reading this one in public (or at least be wearing water proof mascara).
Bee frustrated me at times and I wanted to shake her and steal her donuts but hey we can’t have it all.
The charity, the love interest being SO CARING, seriously he’s such a sweetie I want to go grab some donuts with him and wear matching colourful sweaters. Amazing family relationships, amazing friendships, it’s everything I want in a YA.
Thank you so much to Mollie at Mollie the reader for organising this blog tour and to Sierra for allowing my a free copy or her wonderful book!
