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…
True Colors on Goodreads
True Colors by Melissa Pearl is book 1 in the Mask Series. It is an awesome and interesting YA book that had my attention right from the beginning.
Caitlyn Davis is a normal teenage girl who lives in California and attends Palisades High School. Her life is going great. She has her best friend, Stella, some school friends and her boyfriend, Chase. Caitlyn is the type of girl that stays away from all the high school drama.
One evening at the club with Stella, a homeless man comes walking up to them outside asking for money. Stella had no intention in helping him so she told the man no and to go away. Even though Caitlyn wanted to help the man, she couldn’t because Stella had dragged her back into the club. Shortly after, Caitlyn makes up an excuse about not feeling well so she heads in the direction to the restroom. Instead she sneaks outside to find the homeless man. Something strange had happened to her after giving the man the money.
Caitlyn’s journey has begun. Ever since that evening, her life had changed. She is now seeing her friends in a very different light. They are showing their true colors behind the mask that they wear. Caitlyn doesn’t understand what is going on with herself and doesn’t like what she is seeing and feeling about her friends. It is way too much for her to handle. She doesn’t know what to do or who to tell. One day, Caitlyn drives back to the club to see if she can find the homeless man. When Caitlyn finds him, she demands answers and what he did to her. He explains what is going on and why he passed the gift to her. She thinks it is a curse but he tells her that it isn’t. Will she be able to accept it and fulfill the gift that the homeless man passed on to her?
As I was reading, I could feel the rollercoaster emotions that Caitlyn was feeling through out the book.
Melissa Pearl has done a wonderful job! I am really looking forward to reading the sequel in the Mask Series. It is a must read so I definitely recommend all my book friends to check it out!
I give this book 5 Dandy's!!
