I received this ARC copy for my honest, spoiler free opinion and I’m going to do my best to do just that.
First of all let’s give some props to MG Book Covers for creating this awesome book cover!
Mirage was an amazing ride! Right from the beginning there were so many emotions being portrayed I couldn’t help but get sucked in. The prologue itself had me feeling dizzy with excitement, fear and sadness. Which isn’t easy to do and Ashley Suzanne did it perfectly. This book for lack of better words was BEYOND AMAZING!!!! A love story that will leave you feeling like your heart has been stomped on.
We are thrown into a world with 4 college students, two sets of best friends, Mira and Kylee, and Danny and Skylar. They create an amazing bond, a bond most people wish they really had. Mira and Danny are engaged, there relationship is so sweet. I fell head over heals over all the cuteness! They have just graduated and unfortunately on the way to the celebration there is a tragic accident and everything goes to hell.
The story moves on to the grieving and healing, which was so damn sad! I don’t want to say too much but I will say this…friends lean on friend when times are tough and that’s exactly what happened. And people are brought together under tough circumstances such as grief. We are provided a story line that seemed to fall perfectly, things seem to get better for everyone. My heart was mending the heartache until the end and then I was like “OH HELL NAW” what just happened? All those happy thoughts shattered. And then I was sad again. I read this book in a matter of a few hours. And when I was finished I felt I needed more.
I have high hopes that there will be a sequel, there just has to be. It’s just that good.!
I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE!
This just in the book is now LIVE, i suggest you all “1-click” this amazing novel!
