Can’t Look Away by Donna Cooner | Rating: ★★★☆☆
Donna Cooner is back with a story of loss and growing up in the digital aged spotlight. She manages to smoothly transform a familiar story of death in the family into a modern, teen friendly take in the form of fictional Youtube beauty guru Torrey Grey as she navigates a new setting following the tragic death of her younger sister.
During this time Torrey questions herself, her life and seems to be swallowed up by guilt over her treatment of her little sister the day she passes away. And to top it all off, her so called best friend betrays her in more way than one. Donna does a pretty great job at making Torrey believable and although she can be — at times — insufferable in her quest for popularity at her new school, Torrey is a character you want to root for.
"Once, back in the time of memories, everything had a shape and size, the way things still do, but they also had a quality called color.”

LOVING this bookish rainbow.
When your tea and literature are perfectly color coordinated.
Today’s book haul! I was pleasantly surprised to find Shadow Kiss at Barnes & Noble today because for the last few weeks it was the only book in the series they didn’t have.
