The Color Project
Author: Sierra Abrams
Publication Date: July 18, 2017
Publisher: Gatekeeper Press
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Synopsis: Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.
Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.
When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
For fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson, THE COLOR PROJECT is a story about the three great loves of life—family, friendship, and romance—and the bonds that withstand tragedy.

Why I Can’t Wait for The Color Project:
I’ve been super pumped for this book since Sierra announced her plans last year to self publish it. Back in September, I helped reveal the book’s official blurb and this past weekend I took part in the #TCPcoverreveal chat on Twitter where the gorgeous cover was revealed! Now, contemporary books aren’t usually my thing (as you’ve probably noticed, I mostly read fantasy) but based off the synopsis and the snippets of the book I’ve read, this story sounds like something I will really enjoy! Can June come a bit sooner please??
Is this book on your TBR? Are you excited as me for its release in June? Let me know down in the comments!
