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!
