*author note.. This is a dark series that doesn’t hold back on the tragedy. You have been warned. Although other books in this series fit the romance genre, this one does not. None of them can be read as a stand-alone novel.
As the review chair for a book guild, we get submissions from many authors. My reviewers get to pick what they wish and can return if they feel uncomfortable with any book. Some see triggers, some worry after reading the blurb. I on the other hand read everything and thank goodness for that! If that had been the case I would have missed something very special.
Rowan Massy has written a very special series, Such a Colorful Feeling. I decided to review Wally and I realized there might be a previous book. That being said, it did not interfere with my understanding of this book ….I have just purchased Book #1 and will review as well……..and after that I am anxious tol read #3.
Most people thought our drug made us into freaks, but I say it made us happier than any other bunch of freaks in the world.’
At 12 ish Wally has lived on the streets of a place called Emporium. He has been addicted to drugs at that young age. This hard hitting story is told by Wally, we see life through his eyes, as he lives from hand to mouth by day, and earns money just to pay for the pill that allows him to dance in a field at night with his friends.
Wally who won’t divulge his last name to anyone is now 15. Has a best friend, like a brother, who shares this agony. We are taken into this story to start to see this sweet boy start to become and have hope. Remember the authors warning, this was stark, hard to not squirm, to rejoice…..to cry !
I am so glad my peeps were chicken to take this book on…Wonderful Book!
