Hello lovely people,
I hope you all have an amazing and wonderful day❤️ What are some of your favorite books that you have read this year?!📚 One of mine is Dive Smack by Demetra Brodsky🙌📚🔥🌊
Has it ever happened to you that when you see a cover of a book it’s as if it where calling to you?✨ If so, that’s exactly what happened to me when I saw this gorgeous cover. This is one of the most beautiful covers EVER and after reading the book, I absolutely understand the meaning behind the fire and the water together.
Demetra surprised me with this book in a way that left me speechless, it is definitely one of the best thrillers I have read in a while! ❤️
This is a story about Theo Mackey. He is the captain of his school’s diving team and one thing that has been haunting him forever is that he believes he’s responsible for destroying his home and loosing his mom. After he loses his father as well, he now lives with a grandfather that doesn’t want him to ask anything about that night…
Everything about this book was amazing and epic because Demetra kept surprising me till the every end. There were so many twists and lies that I read this book slowly and carefully because I didn’t want to miss anything!
Theo was a character that while he struggled with his past and the nightmares he had every night, he proved to be someone who wanted to move forward but everything changes when the school assigns him a history family project. While at the beginning Theo believes it will be pointless because he doesn’t think his grandfather will help him, little by little he uncovers things that made him doubt everything.
There’s a time when Theo doesn’t know who to trust and I’m glad he had an incredible friend, Chip, who was always there supporting him and who helped him to understand what happened that night.
This a story that you definitely won’t want to miss. It’s amazing, and the twists here will left you speechless! It is one of the best books I’ve read this year!
