Book review | A Girl Like Lilac by Victoria L James

Genre : young adult

Pages : 350

Published : July 5th 2018

My rating : 🌟🌟🌟

The first time Toby Hunter got arrested for defending Lilac Clarke’s honour, he was only fifteen years old, but he’d loved her from behind his black-rimmed glasses for as long as he could remember.

With a desperate need to protect her from a distance, one arrest turned to two, two soon turning into three, and before Toby knew what was happening, the sleepy village of Southwold was turning against him for daring to stand up for a girl like Lilac.

Beautiful Lilac with her flowers in her hair, her camera in her hands, and her sweet, pink, sugary-lipped kisses.

They could hate him for loving her all they wanted. Toby was a boy who did what was right, not what was easy, and he was always going to grow to be the man willing to give her what she deserved.

Even if that meant losing Lilac forever

I first heard about this book on a author’s Facebook page that I follow , i was really intrigued when I read the blurb and seen it on kindle unlimited I thought I have to have this, although I enjoyed it I found it abit young for me.

I really enjoyed Toby’s character, I really enjoyed how he protected lilac and was there for her but thought there could of been more building in the romance side of it.

The story is told from lilac and Toby’s POV and I found it really easy to follow the story, I think they could of been so much more to the story.

I’m not going to go into the plot, I can’t think of a way to put it without giving the story away.

I found this a cute , teen read that explores the struggles teenagers and young adults may face. I would recommend this to older teens.

“A young girl once told me to hunt for magic. I guess I found it in her. Now I’d do anything to protect it.”

“I’m glad you can look through my dark clouds and still see the way my heart beats for you.”

We were beautiful and tragic all at once, and I couldn’t get enough.

“I’m not worth that kind of trouble.” “You’re worth a war, Lilac.”

If you keep chasing something more, you’ll end up losing what you already have, and you’ll never look at it the same way again
