Product Description

YA CONTEMPORARY

Whitney Denison can’t wait to start over.

She thought she had everything under control, that her future would always include her best friend Katie… Until everything changed.

Now her life in Bloom is one big morning after hangover, filled with regret, grief, and tiny pinpricks of reminders that she was once happy. A happy she ruined. A happy she can’t fix.

So, she is counting down the days until she leaves home for Colson University, cramming her summer with busywork she didn’t finish her senior year, and taking on new hobbies that involve glue and glitter, and dodging anyone who reminds her of her old life.

When she runs into the stranger who drove her home on graduation night, after she’d passed out next to a ditch, she feels herself sinking again. The key to surviving the summer in Bloom is unraveling whatever good memories she can from that night.

But in searching for answers, she’ll have to ask for help and that means turning to Evan, the stranger, and Kyle, Katie’s ex-boyfriend. Suddenly, life flips again, and Whitney finds herself on not only the precipice of happy but love, too, causing her to question whether she can trust her feelings, or if she is falling into her old patterns of extremes.

As she uncovers the truth about her memories, Whitney sees that life isn’t all or nothing, and that happy isn’t something to wait for, that instead, happy might just be a choice.

About the Author

Coleen Patrick grew up in New Jersey, Virginia, Michigan, Louisiana, and Indiana. Always being the new kid, she learned that books and friends are precious--and dessert. She never met a dessert she didn't like (except for flan). When she's not writing, reading (or avoiding flan), she enjoys TV, arts and crafts, quoting movies, and trying to take cool photos. She lives in Virginia with her husband and two kids.

This is the first book I really almost DNF. I have wanted to do that for other books in the past, BUT I do not DNF books no matter how bad they are. It’s just not in me. In this case I was ready to give up fifty pages in.

I found the prologue to be interesting. Young girl so drunk she is passed out in a ditch to be rescued by some stranger. She obviously needs help right? But that’s not what this novel is about. Nope. You only get a few pages of her in rehab and then she is picked up by her mother. If we had more time with Whitney’s recovery maybe I would have connected a bit more with her, but I didn’t. Whitney for such a troubled young girl seemed to bounce back from rehab quite well. She realized she had a problem and vows to move on with her life, which is great. Awesome for Whitney to realize she has a drinking problem and commit to recovery, but you don’t really get a feel of her recovery. It almost seemed too easy.

One problem I had with the book was the parents and Whitney’s relationship. For the first half of the novel Whitney mostly whined about how her Dad cheats on her Mom and her Mom just accepts it. She rebelled and ended up an alcoholic at the age of eighteen. Her parents did not acknowledge her problem besides dumping her in rehab the day after the party. This family has some real issues they need to work through, but of course they don’t.

But, the biggest problem I had with this book is that it just bored me. I was constantly wondering when something would happen. The first half was Whitney’s monotonous life after rehab. Nothing happens, and I mean nothing besides her going to the mall to pick up some craft supplies. Then the romance happens very quickly. She runs into Evan and next thing you know she’s in love. There was no flow to the storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Debut Feb. 22 2014
By S. L. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We've all done things we wish had turned out differently. For Whitney Denison, this is more true than for most. During the summer between high school and college, Whitney must come to terms with the death of her best friend, her abuse of alcohol, and ultimately who she is as a human being and how she sees herself getting on with her life. Coleen Patrick does a beautiful job with this journey of self-discovery, writing at her best in the scenes in TEA, the scenes at Spring Hill where Whitney cares for her grandmother, Whitney's secret Converse project, and most especially the development of Whitney and Evan's relationship - great reading! Whitney as a narrator is very introspective, and there were some places where a little more action and a little less thinking might have moved the story forward more efficiently, but that is a small detail in a book I enjoyed tremendously. It kept me turning pages. I related to Whitney and rooted for her and wanted to see her find peace and a positive way forward. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys contemporary YA and I very much look forward to reading The Art Of Chasing Normal!!!

I really liked this book. Whitney is a great character and easy to like and relate to. My only complaint was the lack of dialog and interactions between the characters. I would have liked to see more of that and less time spent in Whitney's head. Well worth the read though, it was much better then some of the 'fluff' books I have been reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come back to Me March 13 2013
By Bubbe - Published on Amazon.com

Amazing how easy it was to connect with the characters and feel the pain and joys. So happy that in the end, not only did the stars shine, so did the characters inner glow knowing that the break through came about and life goes on. Especially when you make a wish and think positive about what you can change and what you have to accept, a lady bug can do that! Hugs......

I really loved reading this book!! I picked it up in my free time at the beginning of the week, and couldn't put it down. Great storyline, characters, interesting plot and development. I believe teenagers will enjoy this book and be able to relate to Whitney. I hope Patrick continues to publish more books and will definitely be looking out for them!

I loved Whitney and I so glad she was able to follow the voice of her counselor, Emily. We all need to listen to those who believe in US even when we are feeling unsure.
