Today I have a review for the Resilient Blog Tour! You can find the rest of the tour stops here.
Livia has never felt like she fits in. As normal as it sounds, Livia is anything but ordinary. She can feel every emotion of every single person around her, and it’s maddening. In pursuit of some psychic quiet, she moves with her family from New York City to Whidbey Island in the lush and sleepy Pacific Northwest. But when a horseback riding accident in her new home gives her a broken leg that heals in a day, she finds that another unexplainable ability has manifested, and her life isn’t about to get any easier.
Adam has no problem fitting in and making friends. In fact, he’s the top of the school, the boy everyone knows and loves. However, people only see what he allows them to. No one knows what Adam is truly capable of. After witnessing Livia’s accident, Adam sees something intriguing in her quick recovery, something that gives him hope that he’s not alone.
Adam is the only one whose emotions Livia can’t read. Afraid of not knowing what goes on behind his dark eyes, Livia decides to keep him at a distance. Yet the more she tries to ignore him, the more alluring he becomes, and while their personal quests for identity will inevitably bring them closer together, it is the confirmation of what they really are that threatens to tear them apart.
Resilient, told in alternating point of views, is a gripping story of survival and romance, in which two teenagers face the consequences of being anything but normal.

I love a book that takes me by surprise and this book sure did! I went into it not knowing what to expect and came away from it completely blown away. I love a book with alternating view points because I feel like I am getting more of the story that way and it feels like I know the characters better. Adam and Livia are so different but their strange abilities bind them together. The romance that builds between them will tug at your heart strings. The action and secrets will keep you on your toes. This book is amazing except for one thing- the cliff hanger ending will make you either tear out your hair or cry... maybe both. You have been warned! I give Resilient 4 fairies for an unexpected read that took my breath away.
