Review: Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson

This was amazing. Beautifully written and the exploration into mental health was so fascinating and so well done. Alison has special powers. Powers that make her see sounds and taste words and hear colors. She is rumored to have killed a classmate but all she can remember is that Tori "disintegrated" into thin air. But that's just not possible,right? Well that is one of the many questions you'll have while reading this book.

The beginning of this book reminded me so much of Girl, Interrupted,which I loved. Michelline,Kirk & Sanjay all have their own demons to face and Alison is convinced that she is not one of them and that she doesn't belong at the treatment facility.

Until she meets Sebastian Faraday. After that,all bets are off. She begins to realize that nothing is how it seems.He makes her feel normal again.He makes her feel like she's not crazy even though her powers make her feel like she is sometimes.

I would highly recommend this book. I have no reservations about giving it 5 stars.

Go read it and let me know what you think. If you've read it already,comment on the post and let me know how you liked it.


  1. Great review, Alexia! I'm so glad you enjoyed this one. It was unlike anything I've ever read, which is always fun (and so rare these days).

  2. I'm seriously trying to move on but I keep thinking about that book!
