Goodbye Rebel Blue, by Shelley Coriell
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Contemporary
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "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."
- This is a very different and special book. I've never, ever, read a book where the characters form a bucket list. That's so unique and cool! This book is very tragic, but fun all at the same time. Did I mention that this was full of rebellion? :p
Rebel was kind of annoying in the beginning, but I actually ended up liking her by the end. She was very chill and a good character to relate to by the end of the book. I loved this and was the perfect read for any time of the year!
