Title: GOODBYE, REBEL BLUE
Author: Shelley Coriell
Format reviewing: ARC
Rebecca Blue is a rebel with an attitude whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a soon-to-be dead girl. Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate. In doing so, she unexpectedly opens her mind and heart to a world she once dismissed—a world of friendships, family, and faith. With a shaken sense of self, she must reevaluate her loner philosophy—particularly when she falls for Nate, the golden boy do-gooder who never looks out for himself. Perfect for fans of Jay Asher’s blockbuster hit Thirteen Reasons Why, Coriell’s second novel features her sharp, engaging voice along with realistic drama and unforgettable characters.
Favorite character: Macey
Favorite line: "Ride a shopping cart down the candy aisle at Target screaming, 'The British are coming! The British are coming!'"
I loved how the book was written from the first person POV. It allowed for me to really tap into Rebel's mind. The book was thought-provoking, but Rebel's humor keep it from being to depressing. There were some things left unexplained. However, I was okay with that. I felt as if this was just a small part of someone's life. There were things in her past that we didn't get to see, but it worked in the way in which it was presented. I wish I could have seen more of Macey. It would have been great to read more about exactly what made her the way she was, not have it just mentioned and dismissed.
Starred review: 4.3/5
