Resilient by Patricia Vanasse Book Review

I received a free ebook copy from Candace's Book Blog to review.

Resilient by Patricia Vanasse

Book Description:
Livia has never felt like she fits in. As normal as it sounds, Livia is anything but ordinary. She can feel every emotion of every single person around her, and it’s maddening. In pursuit of some psychic quiet, she moves with her family from New York City to Whidbey Island in the lush and sleepy Pacific Northwest. But when a horseback riding accident in her new home gives her a broken leg that heals in a day, she finds that another unexplainable ability has manifested, and her life isn’t about to get any easier.

Adam has no problem fitting in and making friends. In fact, he’s the top of the school, the boy everyone knows and loves. However, people only see what he allows them to. No one knows what Adam is truly capable of. After witnessing Livia’s accident, Adam sees something intriguing in her quick recovery, something that gives him hope that he’s not alone.

Adam is the only one whose emotions Livia can’t read. Afraid of not knowing what goes on behind his dark eyes, Livia decides to keep him at a distance. Yet the more she tries to ignore him, the more alluring he becomes, and while their personal quests for identity will inevitably bring them closer together, it is the confirmation of what they really are that threatens to tear them apart.

Resilient, told in alternating point of views, is a gripping story of survival and romance, in which two teenagers face the consequences of being anything but normal.


My Opinion:
I loved Resilient from the very first to the very last page. Livia and Adam are so different but at the same time they are very alike. The story switches from Livia to Adam so you get to know both characters pretty well and see their point of view. There's so much I loved about Resilient. First of all I thought the romance between Livia and Adam was very sweet. I also loved Livia and Adams abilities and the reason why they have any abilities. The ending is a little depressing but also leaves you wanting to read the next book. Can't wait to read it! I give this book 5 stars.
