What a great book

Books with the tag "great book"

When I started reading this book, I thought it would be a typical bad boy story. But in the course of the book you notice that it is not at all like that. This book is written from two perspectives, Ruby and James. In the other books there are other perspectives and Mona Kasten has found her own style for each figure. So she makes the characters something special in her own way. Thanks to the different perspectives of the characters, you could very well empathize with them and understand their actions.

Ruby is a girl who made it to Maxton Hall College thanks to a scholarship. She is an intelligent, determined person who knows exactly what she wants to do with her life. At school she doesn't want to attract attention at all, she rather seems invisible and separates her private life from school life. When she accidentally learned a secret about someone in a rich family, exactly the opposite happened, because James became aware of Ruby. James is the exact opposite of her, he is rich, arrogant and the typical "bad boy". But the more you get to know him, you realize that his life is not as great as it seems. He has some family problems and is forced into a role so he always tries to distract himself with parties and alcohol. Through Ruby, James learns to believe more in his dreams and in himself.

I was able to identify with Ruby very well from the start and I was also able to understand James more and more as the book progressed. There is a constant back and forth between the two protagonists in the story, so the story is by no means boring. I could hardly put the book down because I really wanted to know what happens next.

The two completely different worlds were also described very well here. I was blown away by the book from the start and I recommend this series to everyone!
