My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Yes, I got to read the book a little bit early - and I'm so lucky!
Though I really liked Blue, Red is my favorite book out of the two to be honest. The characters and setting, both so well drawn in Blue, are even more rich in Red. Cricket and Jules have had time to grow up a little bit and it's so fascinating to see who these characters are after the initial incident that caused their riff (no spoilers) the previous year. We get to see Cricket's world open and expand in ways that are age appropriate and teetering on more uncomfortable growing pains- as well as all of those around her, including her hilarious and weird mom and Jules's mourning dad.
If you liked Blue, you are in for a can't-put-down treat with Red. It's fun, it's beachy, it's the book I'll be reaching for again this summer.
