Kara was a miserable character. Her whole existence was based on her friend Jordan a ...more
I've been curious about Melody Carlson's True Colors series back when I first saw them during the Manila International Book Fair. However, because of my series completion compulsion back then, I never got it. For one thing, there are about 12 books in the series, and another, I couldn't find the first book.

This book had it ups and downs. where to begin? how about the beginning.
Well, kara completely overreacted. Her friend missed where they where they meet to walk to school. Once. And her reaction was: I guess our friendship is over.

Wow, Kara was such a downer! I really disliked Jordan in her book, but I can see why she'd want to ditch Kara, honestly. I also don't even feel like she really did. She kept trying to talk to Kara but KARA is the one who decide ...more
