Today on my blog I have the It Started With Goodbye tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, guest post, and giveaway.
Sixteen-year-old Tatum Elsea is bracing for the worst summer of her life. After being falsely accused of a crime, she’s stuck under stepmother-imposed house arrest and her BFF’s gone ghost. Tatum fills her newfound free time with community service by day and working at her covert graphic design business at night (which includes trading emails with a cute cello-playing client). When Tatum discovers she’s not the only one in the house keeping secrets, she finds she has the chance to make amends with her family and friends. Equipped with a new perspective, and assisted by her feisty step-abuela-slash-fairy-godmother, Tatum is ready to start fresh and maybe even get her happy ending along the way.

It's a modern take on Cinderella filled with family, friends, love, humor, and so much heart. I couldn't out this book down. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author in the future. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
