Faith Lane is the girl who has everything. At least, that’s what everyone thinks when they see her rocking a killer dress while laughing with her best friend, Tiffany. But Faith’s life is far from flawless. Her peers torment her relentlessly, and her parents expect her to be the epitome of perfection. Criticized and pressured at school and home, Faith retreats into silent acceptance and finds an escape in her passion of dancing. Then she meets Alex – quirky, forever with a pass, and concealing a mysterious secret of his own.
And through his encouragement, Faith starts believing in her gift for dance and gains courage to stand up for herself. But will she be able to keep her footing when the events of one night consume her with the need to jump off the rocky cliffs near her coastal home?
And what has pushed her to the edge of reason?
Firstly I would like to thank the lovely K.P Gazelle and her P.A for kindly asking me if I wanted to read and review “The Color Of Happiness”
I believe that there is always light at the end of a dark road and in this book we see a slither of this, don’t let the title fool you…..
Faith Lane experiences teasing and torment from her peers as she has her own individual style in the clothes she wears, If it wasn’t for her best friend, Tiffany, she would be quite alone.
Peer pressure is a horrible thing for a teen to be dealing with, Faith’s parents can be quite controlling over her life and keeping a very close eye on her grades at school, Faith has practically no social life what so ever….that is of course until she meets the handsome and lovely Alex.
“They say a life full of love is a life lived. And so I’ve lived a full life, loving and being loved by you.”
When Faith and Alex start getting closer things start to look up for Faith, they both share many intimate and emotional times together.
The Color of Happiness explores all of these subject matters and I loved every second. It’s a beautiful story that reminds us the sweetness of first love and the importance of friendship.
