You in Five Acts

51dgb4z3-el

I voluntarily received an ARC of You in Five Acts by Una LaMarche in exchange for an honest review.

Description

It’s always been you—you know that, right?

At a prestigious New York City performing arts school, five friends connect over one dream of stardom. But for Joy, Diego, Liv, Ethan and Dave, that dream falters under the pressure of second-semester, Senior year. Ambitions shift and change, new emotions rush to the surface, and a sense of urgency pulses between them: Their time together is running out. 

Diego hopes to get out of the friend zone. Liv wants to escape, losing herself in fantasies of the new guy. Ethan conspires to turn his muse into his girlfriend. Dave pines for the drama queen. And if Joy doesn’t open her eyes, she could lose the love that’s been in front of her all along.

An epic ensemble piece in the vein of Fame and Let’s Get Lost, You in Five Acts is a eulogy for a friendshipthe heartbreaks, the betrayals, the inside jokes, the remember-whens. And the tragedy that changed everything.

Review

Have you ever finished a book and happened to be completely speechless? Una LaMarche will have leave you speechless and in shock with You in Five Acts.

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t sure if I liked the writing style. Each act of the book is written from a different point of view in a letter form, and it took me a little bit to figure out who “you” was in each act. However, LaMarche’s writing style quickly grew on me and I enjoyed the unique way You in Five Acts is written.

I went through every emotion possible. There was happiness, anger, frustration, love, and absolute heartbreak. This book is absolutely amazing and really leaves you thinking.
