    4.5/5 stars

    Initial thoughts: This book was absolutely nothing like I was expecting. Elliott and Catherine are the two main characters/narrators (1st person POVs).

    Elliott is Cherokee/native. This was so interesting. And it played such an important part in the story.

    Both Elliott and Catherine had troubling family lives. This was a key part of the book.

    But the biggest surprise to me was that this book is part romance and part mystery. The mystery aspect added so much to this story. And the end!!!!

    You can't get someone out of quicksand if you're stuck in it, too.


    I'm notoriously picky when it comes to contemporary YA novels and even pickier when contemporary blurs the line with romance. Maybe it's that I overdosed on too many cliched stories of young love when I was in high school, or maybe my attention span has shortened to the point where the only declarations of love I want to see are in pauses for breath on a battlefield. Whatever the reason, I tend to be skeptical of tales that revo ...more

    There's something about Jamie McGuire's writing that just falls flat.

    I read BEAUTIFUL DISASTER when I was sick and glued to bed and despite all of her desperate tries to seduce me into liking it, I just kind of scorned both lead characters.

    ALL THE LITTLE LIGHTS had a bit of a thriller-ish synopsis. And I was sure I would totally dive into a plot like that, but I must say this one was even more flat than her first one.

    I think it's because her characters don't seem to be real people, or at least t

    Jamie McGuire’s “Beautiful Disaster” is one of my all-time favorite YA books. Travis & Abby will forever hold a special place in my heart. I was very excited to receive “All the Little Lights”, thank you NetGalley, Montlake & author Jamie McGuire for a free advanced copy for an honest review.

    The first time Elliott Youngblood spots Catherine Calhoun, he’s just a boy with a camera, and he’s never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight. Both Elliott and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet th

    What is it about Jamie Mcguire’s books that I love so much? It’s that they captivate me! I simply can’t put them down until I finish and that’s exactly how I felt when reading All the Little Lights.

    When Catherine and Elliot met they seemed to click right away. As young teens, both were dealing with their own problems, yet they became very close and started–what seemed like–an unbreakable friendship. When Elliot is forced to leave town, Catherine is left to fend for herself and as time moves on,

  • Sophie "Beware Of The Reader"

    I’ve been given an advanced reading copy of this book by Montlake Romance via Netgalley but it had no influence on my willing and always honest review.

    5 “I've been tricked” stars!

     

    When I learned that Jamie McGuire would publish a new book I requested this one immediately and …crossed my fingers. I was really overjoyed when I learned I could read it because:

    The cover is so pretty :-D ;

    I had a good feeling and so far my intuition never misled me.

    Now that it’s all read and done I can honest

    “ “I know. I’m Elliott. Want to walk down to Braum’s with me for an ice-cream cone?” He was half a head taller than me, but by the looks of it, we weighed the same. His arms and legs were too long and skinny, and he hadn’t quite grown into his ears. His high cheekbones protruded enough to make his cheeks appear sunken, and his long, stringy hair didn’t help the appearance of his oval face.”


    They soon became friends. Catherine was not alone anymore. They spent a wonderful summer together that ended dramatically.

    When Catherine lived the worst day of her young live Elliott had to leave suddenly without saying goodbye.

    Can you imagine what Catherine felt?

    Betrayed and lonely. Rejected once more. These were her feelings.

    When Elliott came back years later ….let’s just say that he had much groveling to do.



    This story about loyalty and love.

    Elliott’s loyalty to Catherine. His utter devotion to her. He was protective. He would have given his life before letting her be hurt.

    Catherine’s loyalty to her mom. I have never read about a more dedicated daughter to her mother. Her mother was fragile and Catherine had to protect and care for her constantly. She had no happy childhood or carefree teenage years.

    Catherine’s mom loyalty to the family house. She could not bear to be parted with this family inheritance even if it was in dire need of repairs and they had no money to care for it. This huge and menacing house dragged them down.

     

    This was a story about abuse, be it from bullies, from neglect by parents or by physical blows.

     

    This was a story about saving you and helping others.

    You can’t help others if you are trapped. You can’t get someone out of quicksand if you’re stuck in it, too,”

     

    This is a story about difference and racial issues.

    In this small town many people would treat Elliott badly because he was part First Nation or native kid. Elliott had to grow a thick skin and to let it go. But of course once he became the football star all was forgiven and people did not see his skin color anymore! I’m always angry when I read such hypocrisy! I consider someone’s worth not based on his skin color, religion or gender but I will rank him based on his actions. There are good and bad people in every culture. The same you have smart and idiots in every religion. To say witnessing such hypocrisy made my blood boil is an understatement!

    And on that topic I so loved that quote!

    “My uncle John says people can only make us angry if we let them, and if we let them, we give them power.” “That you either get good at rising above and meeting ignorance with education, or you get really good at being bitter.”


     

     

    I loved both main characters but Catherine was harder to really connect to. As he holds her secret close she held the reader at arm’s length. Hard to connect with someone who wants to be left alone for fear of having her secret unraveled! Yet I had so much compassion for that poor girl who shouldered so many responsibilities alone! When I discovered the truth I was horrified!

    Elliott Youngblood on the other hand was very easy to fall for. He was a handsome giant who preferred hitting trees when he was angry than risk hurting someone.

    Elliott is dedicated, protective, smart, artsy, handsome, courageous and loyal. The perfect her for this young adult novel.

     

    To conclude I would say that Jamie tackled very difficult topics with an absolute mastery in the storytelling. When you’ll reach the end of the book you’ll realize that Jamie spoke about a very sensitive and not so well-known topic in a realistic and skilled fashion.

     

    Recommend it? Without a doubt and please go on with the book, don’t DNF because you’ll miss the whole purpose of the story.

    *******************************



    Another favorite quote because it happened when Presley bullied Catherine constantly and Elliott defended her (it was sooo good)

    “You know why you’ll never outgrow the need to make others feel like shit so you can feel better, Presley?” She narrowed her eyes at him, watching him like a snake ready to strike. Elliott continued, “Because it’s a temporary high. It never lasts, and you’ll never stop because it’s the only happiness you’ll ever have in your sad, pathetic life that revolves around manicures and highlighting your hair. Your friends? They don’t like you. No one ever will because you don’t like yourself. So every time you give Catherine a hard time, she’ll know. She’ll know why you’re doing it, just like your friends will know. Just like you’ll know that you’re overcompensating. Every time you throw insults Catherine’s way, it’s that much less of a secret.” He made eye contact with each clone and then Presley. “Have the day you deserve.”


     

    Once again a huge thank you to Montlake Romance for its trust.

     

    Let's chat: do you love surprises in books? Have you read Jamie McGuire's books before?

    Thanks for reading!

    All the Little Lights has a bit of thrillerish vibe going on throughout the book for me. I wasn’t sure how I’d like this from her previous reads, but I must say I did like it, it isn’t anything like her precious books though.

    Elliot & Catherine have that once in a lifetime love that carries with them through separation. My heart ached and healed during this read. There are many twists and turns and surprises that will keep you guessing 😁

    Although I struggled with the middle of this story, I
