Book Review: Bold

Title Bold

Author Julia Swift & Andrew Landis

Release Date July 4, 2013

Sasha, a shy, 15-year-old girl who hides from the world, almost dies in a car crash and vows that if she survives, she will be bold and live life to the fullest. Her newfound courage is tested when she meets Will, who just moved to her Air Force desert town after his journalist father’s disappearance. Will is fascinated by Sasha’s brush with and secret knowledge of death.

Sasha and Will push each other to take chances and break out of their sheltered suburban world. But will they discover there is a difference between being bold and being stupid before they put themselves, or someone else, in danger?

Bold was such a good, sweet read. I actually enjoyed the story much more than I thought I would whenever I was first contacted about the book. I always enjoy when a book pleasantly surprises me.

Dual perspectives is something that I'm enjoying more and more lately. I love the fuller picture we get when we're treated with a perspective of each of the main characters. Bold didn't disappoint in this aspect at all. Whether or not it's because the novel is written by two people or not, I don't know, but I truly felt like I was seeing the story from the point of view of two well developed characters.

The romance between Sasha and Will didn't feel forced, faked, or rushed. It's always so much better to see a romance develop naturally rather than one that's forced by the author(s).

Overall, I was very pleased with Bold. I'm glad I decided to give it a chance. If you're looking for a clean, sweet young adult romance you should give this one a try.


4 out of 5 stars
