You are Pink, not the prettiest girl, but smart and with plenty of resources. What do you do when your best male friend offers to have sex with you, because he thinks you’re a lost cause? You plot your revenge with your two best female friends, of course!
It seems you’re in luck when a new and mysterious student appears. And, to top it all, he seems interested in you too. He could take part in the plan. But then, he seems to have a plan of his own… He insists he’s not just an ordinary boy. And what seemed so easy to begin with, gets more and more complicated when Heaven and Hell come knocking at Pink’s door.
Pink Matters is the story of Pink, a 17-year-old girl, a good student, articulate and smart. But she has never been the centre of attention or made the top ten of the most popular and attractive girls at school. When two guys, both claiming to be angels, insist that she is, indeed, ‘special’, fight for her attention and help, and tell her she is the key to the future of the universe, she is quite cynical. But these guys can ‘do’ pretty amazing things, even miracles, so she has to wonder….
Review: From the off, one can easily see this work is orientated towards very young teens… especially girls. The language, idioms, conversations, and overall style are perfectly suited.
The characters are well-developed. I especially like those of pink, G, and Azriel. The storyline is promising.
What I found lacking was substance. While there is a good knowledge of theology evident lending this work towards a Christian fantasy for young adults, there’s not really a whole lot going on in the greater scheme of things… Hopefully this will improve as the series continues.
