#Bookreview – Pink Matters by Olga Nunez Miret

What Amazon says

OK, OK, OK. Pink gets it. She’s the Elected, whether she likes it or not. Heaven and Hell are closing in, and their envoys are closer home than ever. So close she can’t ignore them. And she’ll do everything but.

However long she has, she’s determined to make it count. She’ll sort her friends out, she’ll help her family and, she’ll live a bit. And then, she’ll take charge. Because no one will say that Pink went down without a fight. However big and bad the enemy.
Gender benders, romances, old loves that come to fruition, new challenges, divine interventions, tears, laughter and magic. All of that and more. Because, if you‘re gonna go, you might as well go with a bang.

My review

I listened to the audio book of Pink Matters. The reader had a pleasant reading voice and I enjoyed the narration.

Pink Matters is a fun and easy to read YA novel about a teenage girl who suddenly finds she has gotten more than she bargained for when she befriends the interesting new male student at her school. Pink sees herself as an ordinary girl with no outstanding or special talents or characteristics. Her best male friend, Seth, is a bit of a tease about her status as a single girl. She decides to get even with him by entering into an agreement with the new boy, who goes by the unusual name of G, to pretend they are dating. In return G wants a bit of help from Pink. Pink is intrigued by G’s proposal that they work together as it involves helping people. This is something that appeals to Pink and she thinks that by working with G she may be able to assist in bringing about positive changes to peoples lives. Pink decision to work with G results in her getting embroiled in an interesting and unexpected stand off between representatives of Heaven and Hell. Pink also manages to bring her two best friends along for the ride.

The author perfectly describes the insecurities and anxieties of teenage girls who are trying to fit in and find their place in the world. Pink’s fascination with G and his interesting and less than perfect character traits are typical of a girl of that age. The important’s of supportive friends and parents is also highlighted in this story. The supernatural elements in the book worked well and did not seem unlikely or far fetched. I almost felt this situation could arise, the writing was so natural and easy going.

I found the style of the book engaging and I was really rather put out when the story ended. I need to find out what happens next and I have already bought the next book in the series called Shapes of Greg.

      1. As you can imagine, things are never straightforward for her and her friends, and they get weirder as the story moves on. I hope their next adventures keep your attention. Regards to your family. ♥
