(PLOT BY GR) 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.
Thank you so much to the lovely Sierra Abrams for sending me an advance copy in order to write a review. Premise: a free copy doesn’t effect in any way my thoughts on this story.
The Color Project is a beautiful and fresh story about family and love. It is a story about finding who you really are and facing your fears.
This story reached to me on such the right time. It is so fresh and loving. All the relationships in this book make me squeeze so much ❤
- Family: Bee’s relation with all the entire family is so truthful. She has such a genuine bond with her parents and her siblings — this last relation remembered a lot about the bond between me and my brother: teasing your sibling but at the same time loving him so much. It is so difficult to find a siblings bond that realistic in books.
- Friends: Bee has Gretchen, her best friend, who lives so far from her but their connection is so strong that they keep in touch almost everyday, even at crazy times. (One of my best friend lives in Australia now. So I can totally relate with this).
- Love: The love story between Bee and Levi is so adorable. You can’t NOT ship them. They are so freaking adorable. Don’t even make me talk about Levi: HE IS THE PERFECT HUMAN BEING! Where can I find an adult version of him? (If you are out there you can reach me through any of my social media xD)
The Color Project is not just an adorable story, when you will reach half of it your heart is going to be crushed in thousand pieces and Bee is going to bear such an awful weight. She cannot bear it alone. (I won’t say anything more about the TWIST. You will have to read it.)
What I loved most about this book (beside Levi) is that every chapter has entitled as songs. I think this is so appropriate and we really need a Color Project Spotify playlist if it hasn’t been created yet. Music is such a big part of this book and Levi/Bee’s relationship.
There are also a bunch of nerdy quotes that I couldn’t avoid to smile. It is no news to read about Harry Potter references on these days but Bee loves Matt Smith, she wants to marry him. I also recalled something about Sam Caflin (I challenge you to find some other books who has quotes about these actors). There are also references about the book community with authors as Maggie Stiefvater. The nerd in me was cheering like hell!
It also contains also a list of things that you should have known about Bee. I LOVE LIST!
The writing is so realistic and genuine that it’s impossible to put it down. It is such a fast reading that is going to leave you so overwhelm.
Every kind of feelings will be all over the place.
If I need to find something negative in this book would be that Levi is too good to be real. Yeah, I love Levi so much.
And maybe the unhealthy obsession of Bee to not reveal her real name to another person, especially Levi. It was cute at first but then it was kind of annoying.
The rest of this story is such a perfection.
