"Things should be great for Janie—she has graduated from high school and is spending her summer with Cabel, the guy she’s totally in love with. But deep down she’s panicking about how she’s going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people’s dreams is really starting to take its toll.
Things get even more complicated when she meets her father for the very first time—and he’s in a coma. As Janie uncovers his secret past, she begins to realize that the choice thought she had has more dire consequences than she ever imagined."
My Thoughts So Far:
Gone is the third and final installment in the Dream Catcher Trilogy, and I've been dying to read this one for a while now. I enjoyed Wake and Fade so much, but just was never able to squish Gone into my reading schedule. The story is almost over, and its finally time for Janie to decide what to do, stay with Cabel, become blind and spend the rest of her life in his dreams at night. OR go out on her. When Janie receives the news that her father, the one she's never met, is in the hospital with a possible brain tumor, things become even more complicated! EXCITED to see what Janie decides to do with her future!
Title: Big Fat Disaster.
Author: Beth Fehlbaum.
"Insecure, shy, and way overweight, Colby hates the limelight as much as her pageant-pretty mom and sisters love it. It's her life: Dad's a superstar, running for office on a family values platform. Then suddenly, he ditches his marriage for a younger woman and gets caught stealing money from the campaign. Everyone hates Colby for finding out and blowing the whistle on him. From a mansion, they end up in a poor relative's trailer, where her mom's contempt swells right along with Colby's supersized jeans. Then, a cruel video of Colby half-dressed, made by her cousin Ryan, finds its way onto the internet. Colby plans her own death. A tragic family accident intervenes, and Colby's role in it seems to paint her as a hero, but she's only a fraud. Finally, threatened with exposure, Colby must face facts about her selfish mother and her own shame. Harrowing and hopeful, proof that the truth that saves us can come with a fierce and terrible price, Big Fat Disaster is that rare thing, a story that is authentically new."
My Thoughts So Far:
I haven't started this one just yet, but tonight after finishing Gone, I'll be picking up Big Fat Disaster! There have been so many fantastic reviews revolving around this book, and quite a few people seem to be reading it. I'm interested in seeing how Cobly's life is, and how it becomes after her dad picks up his stuff, to move in with a much younger woman!
