The writing was okay and the flow was good, but the way the messages were handled did not sit with me well. Somebody is depressed so the kids start bullying him for trying to commit suicide. 😤 Even his father treats him like garbage which could be where his depression comes from but was not really ta ...more
I am surprise to find that this book is the first book by Miss Chase. This book took me by surprise. The theme of depression and suicide is highlighted on this book. Everest and Beverly are 2 characters that is just opposite of each other. They have different family background, social status and even skin color. And yet during 1 day, they met on the corner of library and their world change. They brings out the best of each other. And ultima ...more
‘Saving Everest’ got me curious and yes, it delves into the heavy angst bit that seems to be the pre-requisite of such books these days along with the weightier topics of depression and suicide, familial fractures and the difficult routes out of these states.
Essentially, there are no surprises in here: the blurb is as the story goes an ...more
I greatly wanted to love this book. The premise sounded like I was going to fall head-over-heels in love. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Despite that, I still enjoyed this book a lot!
Everest is the popular kid in school who soon turns into a pariah when rumors circulate he tried to kill himself. Beverly is the quiet girl at school who suddenly doesn't want Everest to be alo ...more
Please, do not get me wrong, Sky Chase’s SAVING EVEREST IS written well, the author has clearly poured out a dramatic story, but for me, ...more
Adored this book! The characters were adorable! I loved the relationship between Beverly and Everest: from their issues to the cute little pet names for each other. The slow romance build between the two characters had me craving more and more. I seriously couldn't stop reading.
The character development was amazing as was the writing. The biggest concern I had was that the author seemed to forget that Everest had attempted suicide ...more
Everest is a handsome and wealthy. He’s captain of the football team. Yet he’s still unhappy. He even tried to take his own life.
Beverly is African american. She’s quiet and shy. She’s a hard worker. Doesn’t have the best of home lifes. But through that all she still manages to stay positive
There’s so much angst. These two help each other grow . First time reader and overall a good read.

I liked the beginning and was happy that it was about depression. I was wrong. Only a few chapters had mentions of depression and then it was all them falling in love gradually. Oof. At some points the author did remember to sprinkle about mentio ...more
All in all the love story was cute. Everest and Beverly are a couple to root for and that’s a hard thing to accomplish.
Worth the read if you down mind the subject matter
This isn’t a hateful one star review, more so just a ‘this book really wasn’t for me’ one star kind of review. Netgalley really got me with that cover. And I really hate to say it, but the content inside didn’t feel reflective of the beautiful cover. I felt that Saving Everest had confusing characterizations, no real point of contention and was just juvenile in it’s execution.
I think the nicest thing I have to say about this book is that it reads like a good fan-fiction ...more
I received an ARC of this with the promise of an honest review, so here it is. I wanted to love this book, like really love this book, but by the end, I ended up skimming just to finish. I didn't know this was a wattpad book until after I started reading and you know yah girl is always going to support Wattpaders :) I loved Sky Chase's writing, but do wish they would change some of the plot. I believe this story started off strong. I loved the aspect of the truth that is faced when on ...more

There was a lot of moments that could have been improved imo.
