What would you do if you suddenly had the power to see other people's true emotions, the ones they would prefer to hide? This is the question 18 year old Caitlyn Davis must answer after a strange encounter with a homeless man. Will she use her newfound gift to help those in need, or will her fear cause her to turn a blind eye?
True Colors is the story of an ordinary girl given an extraordinary gift. Caitlyn struggles with this gift throughout the story, as would anyone faced with such a huge responsibility. Her innate desire to help others coupled with this new ability leads her straight into a high school cheating ring being run by some very nasty characters. With several lives at stake, including her own, Caitlyn sets out to shut down the ring and save a friend from a bad situation. But even with a little help, this may be one challenge too tough for her to tackle.
I really enjoyed Caitlyn's character. She's a person with a good heart, but she isn't perfect. She can be far too meek one moment and completely reckless the next. Her intentions are always in the right place, but sometimes it causes more trouble than it helps. Her budding romance with Eric is intense. He's a guy with a lot of trust issues and insecurities of his own, which causes them butt heads more than once.
True Colors has a nice mixture of tension, drama, and romance, with plenty of hold your breath moments sure to have you anxiously turning the pages until the very end.
Eric Shore knew getting involved with a girl who could read people was risky, but he couldn't help himself. Caitlyn is gorgeous and he loves being with her. Things have been going great...until she tells Eric that his step-brother and star basketball player, Connor, is doing drugs. Having looked up to the guy for years, Eric just can't buy it. Things only get worse when Caitlyn starts to question the true nature of Eric's favorite teacher at UCLA.
Their first year at college together was supposed to be amazing, but their relationship is off to a rocky start, especially when Caitlyn refuses to deny what she's seen in order to keep her boyfriend happy. As more and more masks are peeled away, Caitlyn is thrown into a dangerous world where secrets are exposed and Eric once again has to decide whether dating Caitlyn is worth the risk. It doesn't take long for the young couple to realize that even those closest to you can be two-faced.
