Another riveting book sent to me by the fabulous Suzie Townsend.
Straight off, the blurb of Dia Reeves BLEEDING VIOLET intrigued me:
Love can be a dangerous thing….
Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna’s tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.
But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she’s far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.
It was so refreshing to have a YA heroine with mental health issues.
I got sucked into the story immediately with Hanna's unique voice and the pages keep turning from there.
As the book progresses, the weirdness factor increases.
To the point I was left wondering 'huh, what could possibly come up next?'
One of the reviewers for this book summed it up well. "It's about embracing your inner freak."
