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.~Goodreads
Interview with Bee!
If you had a choose a flower to represent yourself, what would you choose and why?
Well, Lisianthus are my favorite flower, but they're too easily bruised or crushed. I'd like to think I'm more like a dahlia. Or maybe I'm spray roses - several little tiny rose buds on one stem. Small and cute and feminine, but with enough thorns to scratch even the most skilled florist.
You know I have to ask, what's your favorite thing about Levi?
His hair. I mean - oops, that was the shallow answer. My real favorite thing about Levi is his persistence. Sometimes it's also the biggest pain in my neck, but that's okay. He makes sure I don't retreat even when I'm afraid.
Do you have any hidden talents we should know about?
I'm the unofficial Guinness World Record holder for both The Biggest Dork and The Most Awkward.
Oh No! You're trapped in an elevator, who do you hope is with you?
Four people: Levi (to talk me down), Matt Smith and David Tennant (I'd imagine they were the Doctors meeting and trying to figure out who to get us out of this trap), and Danny Elfman (to sing to me). This sounds like the start of a really bad "walked into a bar" joke so I'm going to stop this right here and now.
Most embarrassing moment?
That one time my dance costume got washed with some bright colors and turned orange. I was a very obnoxious petal among many soft, light pink petals at that recital. My crush was in the audience. It was horrific.
Sweet or salty?
Salty! (Oh great, now I'm thinking about sushi and I want to eat it.)
Early bird or night owl?
Night owl. I might actually be 1/3rd owl by now.
At 7 years old, Sierra Abrams decided that one day she would publish a book. For over a decade, in between exploring other career options, she kept coming back to that very first dream. Now her life consists of writing books of all kinds... Kissing books, angsty books, killing books, whimsical books, and sometimes books that are all of the above. When she's not writing, you can find her reading, traveling, consuming sushi, or daydreaming about Henry Cavill.
