Heartbreaking. I think if I had to sum The Reverse of Everything up into one word, that’s the word I would use. It creates the question, if you knew when you were going to die, what would you do?

Tara Brown’s writing is incredible. This is my first book by her, but it definitely won’t be the last. I’m in awe at the world she has created, the feelings she was able to draw from me as a reader, and the complex characters she has penned.

The Reverse of Everything is one of those books you should try t

oh my god!!! Tara Brown totally broke me. She has ripped my heart out and stomped on it and then melded it together again LOL I really loved The Reverse of Everything. Completely different than anything I have read before. I do warn, you will need the tissues for this story. This is one story you don't want to miss, definitely one of those ugly cries that you need in your life. Tara Brown's world within The Reverse of Everything definitely makes you think about what life would be like if things ...more

If i could do 3.5

I dislike that i liked this story damn it! I say that kindly! At first i was like wtf seriously its going to end like this?!?! Then i finished it and i grudgingly accept that you did good Tara Brown. I didn't ugly cry but it did get me in the feels here and there. I'll def reccomend this to my friends. I didn't hate any of the characters and how awesome is that?!? I don't want to say anything because i think the book would be best read going in blind its worth the read even thou

I don't even know where to start with this review. It was amazing, tragic, heartbreaking and so good. It is a story about fundimental human behavior while learning to love oneself and those around you. It is about being more than just yourself, it is being a part of a collective and fundimentally enforces the knowledge that family isn't just people you are related to, it is those people who reside in your heart.

In typical Tara Brown style, I simultaneously want to love and hate her at the same

You kill me Tara!!

I don't know why I consider you my all time favorite author. Again, I'm crying and heartbroken. BUT, this has tied Born as my favorites!
The world is ending. The countdown began with everyone over 100. Every week, something or someone has signed the death warrants of the age groups. Knowing when you will die, what would you do? Survive? Take advantage? Give up? Or live the time you have left to the fullest?

The Reverse of Everything by Tara Brown is a full length, standalone romance novel set in a dystopian world.
It's the story of Celeste, Zoey and their friends. A story that kept me on the edge of my seat and glued to the pages, a story set in a world where life isn't worth much. It can be over in the blink of an eye. What would you do when you knew tomorrow at 8am you'll be dead?? A scenario incomprehensibly.
I enjoyed reading The Reverse of Everything and give 4 stars.

Wow, just wow!!!

I was emotionally not ready for all the feelings that this book stirred up in my soul. The journey of these friends was amazing and heart wrenching. Every time I got comfortable with the scene, BAM, the dynamic changed. Tara Brown, you are a master of storytelling and the words that flow from your pen are simply amazing.

Devastatingly beautiful

I was broken while reading this book, this masterpiece of writing. Utterly destroyed at Chapter 25 and glued back together at the end. I’m grateful for the beautiful ending because I was close to never picking up another book again. This truly sets a high bar.

You have to read this book!!

This book is definitely a must read. This story and the characters will pull you in and grip you from the first page to the last. Make sure you have a box of tissues handy. You will definitely need them.

Well. I’m no stranger to this author’s work. BORN was my first love all those years ago, But this review isn’t about that book. It’s about The Reverse of Everything.
I went into this story blind.
I didn’t read the blurb.
I had not heard anything about it.
Didn’t even know what genre it was.
All I saw was TARA BROWN.
That was and is the only thing that mattered to me. This book is filled with an INCREDIBLE story. What a unique plot. I’m still in awe at her creativeness and brain. I felt something

Good.

I wasn't really feeling it until the last 3 chapters then I got hit with all the feels! Nicely written and edited, just lacking in that spark.

Every since I saw the title and blurb for this book, I couldn’t WAIT to get my greedy little hands on it. And dang, Tara did NOT disappoint! I can’t tell you how much I loved, and hated, this book all at the same time. Definitely going on my top favorites list. It was spellbinding, an epic page turner with lots of twists around every corner.
I couldn’t stop reading.

Never have I ever wanted to skip to the ending of a book before, but I was dying to know how all this crazy ended. I didn’t though,

Buckle up, buttercup, it's about to get painful.

This book... no one has come up with words capable of describing what happens within these pages. Snorfgagmardem... yeah ok, that looks right. That's basically the nose that came out of my face hole nearly the whole time I was reading. I'm broken... not just emotionally either. These characters gave me my first grey hair, in my eyebrow... 10000% sure it's from all the crying! At one point I was getting irritated with a high pitched whining noise t

I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.
My family will tell you it doesn't exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I "Cook" from a takeout menu with my face plastered to my computer.
I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and two do
