Shade Me by Jennifer Brown – Blog Tour
Hello peoples! So today I get to be part of a blog tour (as usual) but this post is not usual! Instead of doing a review, a spotlight post or something else relatively usual, I get to talk to you about one of my favorite colors…..yellow! Yup, you heard it here ladies and gentlemen, of the entire rainbow (which I love all of by the way), yellow just gives me an extra special feeling. Thus, I’m happy to present to you my 7 favorite yellow things! But wait, before I do that, why? Well, it’s all because of this new book called Shade Me* by Jennifer Brown which I’ll leave to be explained in 3….2….1…
ABOUT SHADE ME:
Nikki Kill does not see the world like everyone else. In her eyes, happiness is pink, sadness is a mixture of brown and green, and lies are gray. Thanks to a rare phenomenon called synesthesia, Nikki’s senses overlap, in a way that both comforts and overwhelms her.
Always an outsider, just one ‘D’ shy of flunking out, Nikki’s life is on the fast track to nowhere until the night a mysterious call lights her phone up bright orange—the color of emergencies. It’s the local hospital. They need Nikki to identify a Jane Doe who is barely hanging on to life after a horrible attack.
The victim is Peyton Hollis, a popular girl from Nikki’s school who Nikki hardly knows. One thing is clear: Someone wants Peyton dead. But why? And why was Nikki’s cell the only number in Peyton’s phone?
As she tries to decipher the strange kaleidoscope of clues, Nikki finds herself thrust into the dark, glittering world of the ultra-rich Hollis family, and drawn towards Peyton’s handsome, never-do-well older brother Dru. While Nikki’s colors seem to help her unravel the puzzle, what she can’t see is that she may be falling into a trap. The only truth she can be sure of is that death is a deep, pulsing crimson.
Okay, you think that sounds awesome too right? I mean auras? And mysteries? And other really cool awesome stuff?! Sign me up! Wait I kinda am…ya know with this post….whoops. Anyway, you know what I mean; it sounds really cool! Now for my top 7 favorite yellow things!
