Alicia's Review of Hopeless
By Colleen Hoover.
Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies...
That's what Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she's never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past she wishes could just stay buried.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he's nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn't at all who he's been claiming to be. When the secrets he's been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky's life will change forever.
Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content and heavy subject matter involving abuse.
Wow. This book is amazing. I didn't see that twist coming!
Sky has been home schooled and her mother doesn't allow technology in the house which means Sky has no mobile, TV, computer, e-reader and so on. She begs her mom to let her finally join high school where her best friend and neighbour, Six goes. Her mom finally agrees to allow her to go when Six gets accepted to go on a foreign exchange student program leaving Sky to go to school without any friends.
Sky first meets Dean Holder at the store. She is instantly attracted to him but he looks at her funny the follows her to demand her name. She soon realised he has a bad temper and he sort of scares her. Holder has a bad reputation as being a bully.
Six has a bad reputation at school and with Sky being her best friend, all the students automatically put her in the same circle. She has a unjustified bad rep!
Sky gets nasty notes posted on her locker and is talked about by most of the students but Sky doesn't care. She just gets on with her day.
Sky and Holder start getting along with each other and build a friendship leading to a relationship but Holder has a secret. That secret is huge!!
I won't tell you any more about this secret as that's the main storyline but I can say you need to read this book. It's breath taking! I have laughed, cried, fell in love with both Sky and Holder and also hated Dean Holder.
The emotions Colleen Hoover has put into this book are outstanding. At times I held my breath hoping things don't go from bad to worse. Of course with a huge secret you can almost guarantee they will.
Will Sky and Holder be Hopeless always? You'll have to go find out!!
This book get 5* from me. Super read.
