Goodbye, Rebel Blue
by Shelley Coriell
Publication Date: October 1, 2013

Rebecca Blue is a rebel with an attitude whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a soon-to-be dead girl. Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate. In doing so, she unexpectedly opens her mind and heart to a world she once dismissed—a world of friendships, family, and faith. With a shaken sense of self, she must reevaluate her loner philosophy—particularly when she falls for Nate, the golden boy do-gooder who never looks out for himself. Perfect for fans of Jay Asher’s blockbuster hit Thirteen Reasons Why, Coriell’s second novel features her sharp, engaging voice along with realistic drama and unforgettable characters.

I don’t really want to delve into the real reasoning for my wanting to read this book, but even if those other reasons didn’t exist there’s still the point that this sounds like an amazing book. I’m super curious about this “chance encounter”. I love books where the character is sort of forced to take a good look at their life. This comes out soon too. Woo!

  1. I’m really excited about this book! I liked Shelley Coriell’s Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe and it was a fun read but I couldn’t really relate much to Chloe since her personality was opposite mine. Rebel seems like a character I could get in to and Good Bye, Rebel Blue seems like a more insightful book than Coriell’s first one. I’m really looking forward to reading it. 😀
