Worth the Risk by Izzibella Beau is a wonderful YA romance book- that took me on a interesting, funny, emotional, and memorable journey. This is a descriptive, detailed and well written story. It looks at social classes, cliques, the demands of high school life, responsibility and expectations, pressure from family and friends, finding love and deciding if love is Worth the Risk.
I loved the characters, Chelsey and Marcus are so wonderfully crafted and likeable. I connected with them and became invested in their story, rooting for them the whole way through. Though all the highs and lows, and the ‘battles’ they fought- I admired them even more. I didn’t expect to like this story as much as I did. But, I should have known that Ms. Beau would pull me in and keep me engrossed in her story and characters. Ms. Beau has a superb way with words and is a consummate storyteller. If you love a story that takes you on a journey both of mind and heart, then this really is a book you should read. I don’t want to give away too much- I think the story should speak for itself and surprise you, as it did me. There is a lot more to this book than first meets the eye. Well worth the read!
I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.
Thank you, Ms. Beau!
