It Started with Goodbye (Blink) by @ChristinaJuneYA @BlinkYABooks

It Started with Goodbye (Blink) by [June, Christina]

Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she's stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF's gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client).

When Tatum discovers she's not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela/fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

A modern play on the Cinderella story arc, IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE shows us that sometimes going after what you want means breaking the rules.
 

IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE will appeal to fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jennifer E. Smith.


This book is going to be a hit.  It is realistic, in plot and characters, while being heartfelt, honest and humorous.  I was taken away in the story and Tatum to be a character I really felt connected to.  It is a Cinderella story that did my heart happy.  A must read!!!
