My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Publication date: May 15th, 2014
Genres & themes: YA, contemporary, lesbian, life matters, friendship, family.

BLURB:

A love letter to the craft and romance of film and fate in front of—and behind—the camera from the award-winning author of Hold Still.

A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.

Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.

REVIEW:

Everything Leads to You is definitely not a BAD book. It was actually my first lesbian YA (romance—details later) read and I think I may continue with this genre and try to seek some gems out there—because there always are!

Carnelian has such a beautiful cover and a plot that seems promising.

I have been fooled once more needless to say. Continue reading
