Sage has been often referred to as “Princess Post-It” by her classmates because of her tendency to leave encouraging notes to those who were having a hard time. Although to others she looks perfectly normal and overly positive, deep down, her past and scars still haunt her and it takes more effort than necessary to keep up her facade. But when she meets Shane, everything around her changes. He was beautifully broken, just like her, and has cared for her more than she would have ever imagined. But when her secrets start slipping out, the only way to salvage her relationships are to face her past. This was very sweet, intriguing, and well-written. The characters were interesting, unique and likable while they developed throughout the novel. The main pair’s secrets kept me engaged and their winning personalities kept me rooting for them. Rating:4/5

The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things is a very heart felt and loveable book that I really enjoyed reading. The main character, Sage, is someone I really liked learning about. Throughout the book, the author hints about her past, but she doesn’t explain it to us all at once. In bits in pieces, Sage’s life is told, which made it hard for me to put down, because I wanted to know who she was before moving to Illinois! The characters in the story were very relatable, which made this story feel more alive! How Sage met her boyfriend, Shane, in the beginning of the book, may have not been the easiest of confrontation's, but these teenagers really showed what it meant to never give up, which made it the cutest love story I've read to date! 5/5. @AnythingYellow14 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
