Blog Tour: True Colors by Melissa Pearl

True Colors Blog BannerSynopsis
Caitlyn Davis always cruised through life, not being the type to ruffle feathers or involve herself in high school drama…until a chance encounter with a strange, homeless man changes everything.

Suddenly, Caitlyn has the ability to see behind people’s masks. She discovers that her life isn’t as simple as she imagined and her high school is filled with secrets…some very sinister ones.

Unable to ignore her new gift, Caitlyn embarks on a mission to learn why one of her friends now appears terrified, but masks her fear behind a bright, smiling veneer. Will Caitlyn’s new ability lead her into hot water? Or is her new found vision a blessing that will expose her friends’ true colors?

Her quest will lead Caitlyn to lose friends, stand up for those in need, and even find love.

At Palisades High School every face tells a story…

I normally don't read YA books because I'm really over the whole high school thing. It has been done and redone 1000 times. HOWEVER True Colors was something so much more. The synopsis made me curious so I wiped all assumptions away and went into this book completely open. I have never read anything by Melissa Pearl and I'm so glad I started with True Colors! She has made a fan out if me and I urge you not to pass this book up because its in the YA category =)

The main character, Caitlyn, is your typical shy high school student. She just tries to blend in, never really wanting attention. Her best friend is what I would call a "mean girl" and seems to make herself feel better by being bitchy towards others. When Caitlyn meets a homeless man, her world changes with just one touch. She has gained the "gift" to see behind the everyday masks that people wear. I love how Caitlyn transforms from a pushover to a girl on a mission. She is shocked at what she sees and digs to get to the bottom of it, causing trouble on her way. Lol. She uses her "gift" to help others and I love her selflessness!! Through all this she meets Eric and they fall for one another!

True Colors is extremely well written and the supporting characters were developed perfectly. I would love to have the ability to see peoples TRUE COLORS! I am sure I wouldn't use it for selfish reasons, I think I would use it to do good and help people! I can't wait for the next book to see what troubles await them!
