Review: It Started with Goodbye

It Started with Goodbye by Christina June
Reviewed by: Jill Hart
Genre: Victorian Gothic Mystery, Suspense, Romance
Publisher: Blink
Publication Date: May 9, 2017

It Started with Goodbye is a fresh, modern story loosely based on the Cinderalla tale.  Tatum Elsea feels like she can never do anything right. She just landed in hot water – again – and is now in more trouble than ever with her dad and stepmom. And, to make matters worse, her dad is headed out of the country on business, so she is under the rule of her stepmom for the summer.  To add insult to injury, Tatum’s stepsister is cold as ice and won’t give her the time of day.  It’s looking like it’s going to be a long, long summer for Tatum.

However, when Tatum discovers some new friends right in front of her, as well as a way to make a difference in the lives of those around her, she realizes that there might be more to the people in her life than she realized.  Tatum sets out on a journey of discovery – of who she is, and how she relates to her family and friends.

This is a sweet, fresh young adult novel.  It’s so well written that I breezed through it and enjoyed every moment.  Tatum’s discoveries are refreshing and by the end of the book you’ve watched her grow and lived with her through a little mystery and romance. All in all, I loved this book and Christina June will be going on my list of authors-to-purchase. Can’t wait to read more of her work!

Rated PG-13: This is a great book for tweens and teens. Not only will they enjoy the story itself, but it makes a great conversation starter.
