Emi Price may be a romantic, but real life is rarely what the movies make it out to be. When a strange letter leads her to find the granddaughter of a famous movie star, Emi is prepared to solve the mystery of a lifetime.
When I picked up Everything Leads To You, I had extremely high hopes.Nina LaCour’s We Are Okay remains one of the most heart-wrenching stories I’ve ever read. Thankfully, this book met and even exceeded my hopes. Emi’s story is so utterly human that it almost hurts. She longs for a romantic, film-worthy story, but what she gets is the sort of realism that films can only hope to capture. In some ways, this is so much better.
The imagery in this book was astounding. Maybe it has something to do with having a set designer as narrator, but I felt like I could really see what was happening throughout the story. Every scene is insanely vivid. This goes even beyond the physical description – each character’s emotions are so clearly articulated that it’s not hard to tell what they’re feeling unless Emi is in the dark as well. All in all, Everything Leads To You was a beautiful book that I’d definitely recommend.
Yours in love and literature, Page.
