Hello! And welcome to my stop (first post) on the blog tour for What beauty there is by Cory Anderson – I’ve yet to receive my lovely, lovely ARC in the post so I am just sharing my excitement of what is to come… when I’ve read the book I will post a review 🙂
And I am excited for this one!
When everything you love is in danger, how long can you keep running to survive?
Life can be brutal
Winter in Idaho. The sky is dark. It is cold enough to crack bones.
Jack knew it
Jack Dahl has nothing left. Except his younger brother, Matty, who he’d die for. Their mother is gone, and their funds are quickly dwindling, Jack needs to make a choice: lose his brother to foster care, or find the drug money that sent his father to prison.
So did I
Ava lives in isolation, a life of silence. For seventeen years her father, a merciless man, has controlled her fate. He has taught her to love no one.
Did I feel the flutter of wings when Jack and I met? Did I sense the coming tornado?
But now Ava wants to break the rules – to let Jack in and open her heart. Then she discovers that Jack and her father are stalking the same money, and suddenly Ava is faced with a terrible choice: remain silent or speak out and help the brothers survive.
Looking back, I think I did . . .
Perfect for fans of Patrick Ness, Meg Rosoff and Daniel Woodrell, What Beauty There Is an unforgettable debut novel that is as compulsive as it is beautiful, and unflinchingly explores the power of determination, survival and love.
Amazing blurb, right!?!!? I cannot wait to delve into the story and find out what is going on…
What beauty there is will be published in the UK on the 8th of April. I have all my fingers and toes crossed I receive my ARC this week!
Are you excited for it?
