"Sometimes in life, you only get one chance to make an impact one someone else's life...." Alex may be an all star quarterback, popular with the girls, good grades but he fights his demons with an addiction. His unconditional love for Indigo is rare. Not only does he love her but her demons and her mental illness as well. "The lie will stain my heart while guarding his soul.." Indigo has fought her mental illness issues since she was a child. She doesn't realize just how strong she really is. With the love and support of Tori she will begin to have light brought into her dark world. I could feel Bleu's pain and the love her and Alex shared. "Do not always choose the easy route. You do not know what obstacle may lay ahead in the middle of the road. Follow your instincts...." One thing I admire about Kailee Samuels is that she isn't afraid to write about taboo subjects that other authors tend to shy away from. "So my destination resided somewhere between a runway and a straight jacket." I'm speechless!! A & E is about mental illness. Depression. Bi-polar. Cutting. An indepth look into one's mind that is suffering. The joys, the anguish, the pain, the spiraling downwards and the emotional turmoil one faces daily. A heartbreaking story that will touch your heart and soul. "...our love floats and the bad things sink..." Kailee Samuels has written a beautiful masterpiece that I feel everyone should read whether you suffer from mental illness or have a loved one who suffers. A & E will definitely shed some light on the subject. I recommend anything written by this amazing author!!
I was thoroughly immersed into the story of Indigo Violet (Bleu) and Alex. At times this was a deeply emotional and almost depressing read. But, there were many facets of hope, joy and happiness interspersed throughout that balanced the sad times. Mental illness isn't something that is written about or talked about very often and I feel that the author did a remarkable job penning this novel.
I can say that after I found my love for book I feel even more complete. I have authors that I like, authors that I love and this lady is in the love pile. She's amazing and her books shows just that. Kailee Reese Samuels is the bomb. Her writing is hot and sassy, wild and forbidden, but with so much feeling between every chapter. She knows what to say and when to say. a&e is her latest release and tells the stories of Indigo and Alex. Indigo " Bleu or Indie" had her childhood marked by tragedy and now she's dealing with demons that haunt her days. Alex is the popular guy, he's a quarterback for his team. This could be just another story but he isn't happy. His mom and step-dad are the worst kind of people. These two meet and things aren't what they seem. The bond they have is so strong and beautiful. oh boy... What can I say without spoiling? How can I talk about this book without telling to much? This story progressed through the years and we can see that the bond Alex and Indigo share is beautiful and super strong that time can't erase. The plot is intense, heartbreaking, real, raw and super addicting. The interation between the characters is beautiful and sweet and managed to stole my heart in the process. The issues approached in this book are real and if we pay attention we could make a difference but unfortunately we don't, so this book just came to reinforce that we need to see and help. I've laughed, I've cried, I've cursed but I loved and lived every moment of it. If you want a book that will blow your mind and focus on real issues this is the one for you. Not everything in life is black or white, sometimes we can have grey as well. Kailee you are amazing. It's beautiful the way you approached mental illness. It's amazing how your words can make us think. Superb book girl, simply magnificent. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This book, what can I say... Beautiful, sad, emotional roller coaster of feelings. This is my favorite by Kailee Reese Samuels by far. It is story of Indigo, and Alex and their reunion after 10 years apart. There is also a little mystery playing along in the storyline. I really enjoyed every word written in this story.
