REVIEW: Weightless by Kandi Steiner

29840196I remember the lights.

I remember I wanted to photograph them, the way the red and blue splashed across his cold, emotionless face. But I knew even if my feet could move from the place where they had cemented themselves to the ground and I could run for my camera, I wouldn’t be able to capture that moment.

I had trusted him, I had loved him, and even though my body had changed that summer, he’d made sure to help me hold on to who I was inside, regardless of how the exterior altered.

But then everything changed.

He stole my innocence. He scarred my heart. He took everything I thought I knew about my life and fast-pitched it out the window, shattering the glass that held my world together in the process.

I remember the lights.

The passionate, desperate, hot strikes of red. The harsh, cruel, icy bolts of blue.

They symbolized everything I endured that summer.

And everything I would never face again.

REVIEW:

I have fallen so in love with Kandi and all of the books that I have read so far from her. She has a way of writing deep emotion into her books with the perfect amount of hope in there to keep the reader going.

As someone who has always struggled with her weight, I really connected to Natalie and her journey of self discovery. This is not just a book about weight, it is about family, finding one’s true friends, and discovering how much more important the beauty on the inside really is to the people who matter. Natalie was my hero in this book because I felt like I was a part of her journey from beginning to end.

Rhodes has definitely become one of my favorite book boyfriends. He is a little rough around the edges, but he needed someone to dig deeper just like he did with Natalie. Natalie doesn’t believe in herself, but Rhodes doesn’t think he’s worthy of being around people like Natalie. They both gave each other what they each needed, and travelled this journey of self discovery together. Rhodes saw past Natalie’s outward appearance to who she truly was, and Natalie did the same to him.

All I can say is that I hope one day that I find my Rhodes!

Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars!
