The Color Project by Sierra Abrams
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.
The Color Project:
I received an earc of The Color Project by Sierra Abrams for review as part of The Color Project Blog Tour. This has in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings about the book.
Stay until the end to win a copy of The Color Project.
I’ve been looking forward to this one for quite some time. It sounded like my type of contemporary novel. What I didn’t expect was to cry like a baby and grin like an idiot at the same time. The Color Project is a whirlwind of emotions, you are taken for a ride and it’s a little crazy.
The Color Project follows protagonist Bee as starts a new job, meets a new boy and has her life changed forever. Bee has only started working at the flower shop when her car breaks down, but when she goes to get it fixed, she is transfixed by someone new – Levi. Levi likes to wear bring shirts and when no at the repair shop, all his time goes into The Color Project. When then someone in her family gets sick, and everything falls apart.
Bee was a very interesting character to read along with. I felt that I could connect with her in a lot of ways. We liked a lot of the same things and I felt that if we knew each other in real life – we would be great friends. In saying this I also felt that Bee was very stubborn and that really hindered me liking her at times. I just wanted to shake her all about and knock some sense into her. However, I felt that Bee had a really nice character arc and I enjoyed seeing her journey.
Levi, please can he be mine? He was adorable, strong and just made my heart skip a beat. I loved getting to know Levi, he had many layers that I liked finding out about. However, at times I felt that he only looked at things one way and that took away from him.
The romance in The Color Project was totally adorable. I liked seeing Levi and Bee fall for each other. It was slow and nice to see, two young characters fall like they did. At times I did cringe, not because it was bad. But, because I could see things coming between then.
The Color Project had a massive focus on family and friends. And although there was a little bit of ‘the bad family,’ there was also so much love. I loved the dynamics of Bee’s family and how at a time of need they were all there. It was beautiful.
Although I did really like The Color Project, I did feel that the writing was lacking a little. That doesn’t mean it was bad. I just wanted someone more. I feel as Sierra Abrams novels go on, her writing will only become better and better. It’s a great start and I cannot wait to see more. I wasn’t a massive fan of all the talking that Bee did to us. Nevertheless, I think there is potential.
Overall, I really enjoyed The Color Project. I feel in love with the characters and where they wanted to go. It’s a really good debut novel from a young author. The Color Project explores the notions of family, friendship and first love. It’s heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time, it’s real and raw.
