Review: Goodbye, Rebel Blue

Goodbye, Rebel Blue - Shelley Coriell

This is a great book! I was immediately drown to it because of the synopsis. I mean death is huge. It makes me think about our lives and how short they really are. Do you have a bucket list? Will you do someone else’s bucket list?

 

Plot: The reader meets Rebel. A girl handed some bad cards and learning to move on. She is introduced to another girl during detention who questioned Rebel’s life. Then she dies. And her bucket list is in Rebel hands. I love this. Watching Rebel complete the bucket list of a dead girl is amazing. The plot flows well, allowing the reader to fully grasp what the bucket list is doing to Rebel. It’s just awesome!

 

The bucket list: By Rebel doing the bucket list it changed Rebel. It help her looks at things in a whole new perspective. Some good and some bad. But she changed. Watching Rebel struggle and even face her fears in doing the bucket list made me proud of her. No one pushed her and told her to do it, she did it because she wanted too.

Death: Death makes me questions a lot of things. What would you do if you only had one day to live? Where would you go? What would you confess? Rebel’s life has been consumed by death. By the death of her own loved ones, Rebel begins to wonder about her own life. And in doing that she….

 

Falling in love: This little area of the book I was so surprised and awed at! I love that this friendship grew into something more. That this bucket list not only changed Rebel but changed the guy too. Remember, it’s your life. And what you make of it, is up to you.

 

This is a fantastic book that I can totally re-visit again. It had a certain appeal that I could not look away from. Goodbye, Rebel Blue is a powerful story and sensitive story that is deeply moving. Truthful yet satisfying, Goodbye, Rebel Blue is great!
