Caroline Sands has never been particularly good at making friends. And her parents’ divorce and the move to Arizona three years ago didn’t help. Being the new girl is hard enough without being socially awkward too. So out of desperation and a desire to please her worried mother, Caroline invented a whole life for herself—using characters from Felicity, an old show she discovered online and fell in love with.
But now it’s time for Caroline to go off to college and she wants nothing more than to leave her old “life” behind and build something real.
However, when her mother discovers the truth about her manufactured friends, she gives Caroline an ultimatum:Prove in this first semester that she can make friends of the nonfictional variety and thrive in a new environment. Otherwise, it’s back to living at home—and a lot of therapy.
Armed with nothing more than her resolve and a Felicity-inspired plan, Caroline accepts the challenge. But she soon realizes that the real world is rarely as simple as television makes it out to be. And to find a place where she truly belongs, Caroline may have to abandon her script and take the risk of being herself.
*Felicity is an American Drama Series*
The best thing about Finding Felicity was undoubtedly the plot. It was very relatable, very very relatable. Maybe it was more relatable to me because I am of Caroline’s age, and the condition she is in, before she moved to the college or first few days after joining the college is something I had faced(maybe not much of the before joining condition though, but definitely the after joining condition was something I had faced when I first joined college). Finding Felicity was such a read which kept on reminding me of myself every now and then.
Finding Felicity is a story of finding oneself, of making peace with yourself. You are important and you can only save yourself, make your life better. This is one message that is given through the book, and I think this is something we should all remember.
Caroline’s character was obviously very relatable and I really loved her. Other than Caroline I really loved other small characters too, especially Lexi, who was not very friendly first but eventually she became one of Caroline’s best friends.
Had to add this paragraph!!!😅If you had not guessed till now (which I am sure you have), I should tell you this I absolutely loved this YA tale of Caroline, it was really awesome. I loved it a lot.
I think people of all age should read this book, because I feel that someway or the other everyone would be able to relate to Finding Felicity and Caroline and would totally enjoy this book.
