This was great. Written well. Unique story that moved at a good pace. If you like YA put this on your list.
The Deepest Roots is a magical story about tight friendships. I can relate a lot to this book, not only because I have grown up in a town in Kansas much like Cottonwood Hollow, but also because I feel like my close friendships really helped shape me as a person when I was in high school. It's very easy for a reader to feel a kinship to any of the characters, and see themselves in one of them, or even all of them. Rome's snark reminds me of my own, and I appreciate her motivation to work hard. It ...more
ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
Okaaaay. So I took a long time finishing this ARC because it's a bit uneventful. Don't get me wrong, the premise is way good. The idea that there are talents is really appealing for me. Especially being a Fixer. It's really a cool idea.

Rating: 4.5 Stars
In a town where every woman had a "talent", Rome was a Fixer. A cracked screen, a loose wire, a rusty hinge - she Fixed them with very little effort, but when her home life began to crumble and her friendships started to crack under the weight of secrets, she found herself in a situation beyond her Fixing.
I'm supposed to be a Fixer, but it seems like everything I touch lately breaks to pieces.
• Pro: The central theme of this story was friendship, and what a wonderful one it was. ...more
#Deweysreadathon Book 1: Despite its convenient plot twists, I enjoyed The Deepest Roots, mostly because of the relationship between Rome, Lux and Mercy. 💜 3.5 stars
