Esther Allen, tr. QUIPOem. Two books in one (Wesleyan Poetry) in my life I wanted to liket but The Color of Water it just didn t go with the first book at all It s such a shiftn focus and direction that Mayan Strawberries it s hard to tolerate I ve never seen a bunch of characters who just don t know anything about themselves about the people around them about where they re going Every character arc felt liket ended up with IDK I guess I ll figure out at some point If this Bill Gates (Up Close) is suppose to represent teens thent s kind of off the mark I think real teenagers know a lot about themselves than this book will lead you to believe I don t know Mistaken Mistress if I ll bother with the third book andf I do Bunny: A Novel it will only be to see how everything turns out with Becca s stepfather I m certainly hoping there won t be another ridiculous plot about seals or some out of place nonsense Omg I finally finished I started this bookn July 2014 and had t sitting on my desk forever unfinished I never really could get nto The Great Smog of India it Today I put my foot down I stayed up until 3n the morning to finish t tooI m giving this seuel 2 stars In the first book The Edge of Nowhere we meet Becca a 15 year old girl from San Diego We find out Becca s step father has killed his business partner So Becca and her mom make a run for t Fear that they will be killed as well In their haste to hide Becca s mother drops her off at Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington Tell s her she ll be staying with a friend and she ll come back for her soonThe first book was great A bit of mystery A little bit of paranormal abilities This second book was all over the placeThere are so many subplots going on The main mystery of this seuel was just weird It would have been great The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary if this supernatural story line was a continuation from the first book The first 250 pages were so slow The build up dragged The secondary characters took too much time away from the main plot I was notmpressed I think this Tryst with Prosperity is a trilogy wishs unfortunate I of course want to see what happens to Becca Popular Hits in the end but maybe not this year I love how the author gave different point of views throughout the entire story That way readers can get a look at what s going onn the lives of the other characters nstead of just the main oneI didn t expect the twist of Jenn s thoughts and emotions on her sexuality but I think t touched the book n a thoughtful and diverse wayAnnie though gosh What the heck s wrong with that girl She The Creative Habit is all sorts of messed upn the head If I didn t know better I would say that she got fumed with that oil spill ages ago and The Rest of the Story it made her mental but clearly she was just born this messed up Annie had what we call an open relationship except their not really dating than one person their just fooling around with other peoples emotions and private parts Thats not ok and does not make fucking around with a guy when your a lesbian or less and screwing around with his feelings ok Nor s t ok to come on to a 15 year old girl when she s like what In her 30 s That s child molestation This girl s crazy and should be put n jailBut anyway This was a great book and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
