Vivid by Andrea Murray
Andrea Murray is currently on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Vivid. I have been reading more YA books, and more YA fantasy/paranormal novels as well, which this book fell into that category. The story follows sixteen year old Vivian Cartwright, who has the power to control energy. Her mother was killed when she was five, and her Aunt Charlotte took Vivian and went on the run to protect her from the people who killed her mom. Vivian tries living a normal life- being bullied in high school, fighting with friends, falling in love, but everything changes when she starts using her powers more. Soon, those who killed her mom find Vivian, and takes Aunt Charlotte hostage to lure Vivian to them.
Vivid definitely features a cliff-hanger, but the sequel, Vicious, is now out and I cannot wait to see what happens! This book moved very fast for me, and I really couldn’t believe when it was over so soon. The ending had me reading very quickly, eager to know what would happen to Vivian. I loved the romance element in the book and also the bullying. It made Vivian very real to me despite her power, and I was interested in her story throughout. One I would recommend if you enjoy YA material.
