Before I get started with my review, I forgot to mention that this year, I hope to review EVERY BOOK that I read (NOT COUNTING GRAPHIC NOVELS)! This was the very first book that I read this year, and it definitely kick started my reading high!
Let’s get started with the review!
Title: Everything Leads To You
Author: Nina La Cour
Publishing Date: May 15, 2014
Publishing House: Dutton Juvenile
Summary (Via https://www.goodreads.com/):
A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.
Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.
I loved this book SO MUCH!
I felt like I had a strong connection with all of the characters and that I got to see them growing up together! I thought that the main characters, Emi and Charlotte, had such an amazing passion for the film industry, and it showed so much through out this story.
The main character, Emi, is a lesbian, and I loved the way that the aspect of being gay wasn’t harshly done. Emi is only 18, but everybody is accepting of that, and that is amazing to FINALLY see in YA novels! Most of the time, the gay character will get picked on or bullied, but in this book it was just part of Emi’s personality! It also intertwined beautifully through out this book, as far as the romance aspect goes.
The mystery aspect was another huge one! I loved how the Emi and Charlotte set themselves on a mission to find who the “mysterious” letter was for, while not eve knowing what there were setting themselves up for!
Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars!
I had such a fun journey reading this book, I hope that soon you will be picking this book up to see for yourself!
Good Night Book Worms!
