Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn't want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.
Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.
When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee's summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
For fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson, THE COLOR PROJECT is a story about the three great loves of life—family, friendship, and romance—and the bonds that withstand tragedy.

Five Reasons Why You Should Drop Everything on July 18 and Read The Color Project
Lately I’ve been in a reviewing funk/slump, so I am back again with another list of reasons why you should totally drop everything, and I mean everything (except for homework and other real-life priorities despite the fact you’d rather read all day) on July 18 (WHEN THE BOOK COMES OUT!) and read Sierra Abrams’s debut novel.
The Use of Apps – I think this is a really minor detail, but I almost never see books that actually uses smartphone apps, and Abrams incorporates the use of at least one app I think almost everyone uses on a daily basis if not more.
Gorgeous Writing – I currently don’t have the copy with me by side as I’m writing this review, but Abrams has some amazing descriptors in her novel (most of which having to do with stars and constellations, which I adore). Have I mentioned the chapters are based on songs?!
Family and Friendship – Aside from the obvious romance, family and friendship plays an important role in The Color Project, and I loved how Abrams incorporated those two elements together seamlessly with romance.
So Much Emotional Feels – If anyone knows me well enough, I am not an emotional person when it comes to the books I read and the movies/TV shows I see. The Color Project brings out my emotional side, and I had so many tears as I got closer to the end of the novel. (Granted, I might have been watching far too many Boys Over Flowers episodes and reading about three other contemporary novels at the same time, but I never cryyy.)
Cute Characters – I am alll for adorable characters. Imperfect Chemistry is valid proof of that, along with many others I’ve been reading lately (from I Believe in a Thing Called Love to When Dimple Met Rishi). Bee and Levi are so adorable, I just want to pick them up from The Color Project and adopt them.
It was an absolute delight to read Bee’s and Levi’s story in The Color Project, and is perfect for those looking for a contemporary novel that has gorgeous writing and bring so much emotion.
