The carnival is in town and charlie is finally home. The fresh smell of bunt cakes, the cries of children not winning at the rigged carnival games and the most terrifying rides make charlie happy. But when she meets the guy of her dreams, her plans change and spiral in an opposite direction. While spiraling she learns to let loose and let go in order to live life. Carnival is a book that reminds that living is only possible if you let go and let it happen.
The characters in Carnival are lively, real and a great representation of life when you don’t know what to do after living a constructive life. Charlie is a great girl, with a plan to go to college with her best-friend. She is a smart, funny, thoughtful girl who evolves into a storm of spontaneous. To make her any better, Blue is the guy that gives Charlie a reason to be spontaneously fun. Blue himself is a spontaneous question mark because of the way he moves around without anyone noticing; besides the side that keeps silent, he is thoughtful, cool,sexy guy who knows how to live. Summer, who is Charlie’s best-friend, is a free-living spirit with a desire to got to school. She is a great inspiration for charlie to take risks while till being safe in life; Summer is a very important part of Charlie, they’re like each other’s half. Dylan is a different kind of person because of how he’s acted about certain things, I feel like he was the drama queen of the whole book. There were so many characters in their clique that writing about them all would keep you here for hours.
Basically the book was mostly about figuring out life to the best of your ability while having fun, and I mean felt this theme was dominant in the story. The theme was consistent throughout the whole story making it really fun to read the book. But not to give anything away from the plot, theres romance of Blue and Charlie, action of family problems and drama of where togo in life. This book deserves a lot of praise because of everything fitting in and working well together. I rate this book a 5 but with a warning that 17+ only read this book, because of the content in it. Besides my warning, this book is amazing and you guys should definitely purchase this book. So thanks for reading this book review and I had a pleasure reading this book and I think you guys would too. So I love you guys and have a great day.
