'Unless You Can Be A Unicorn' by Delphina Henley - Review


Always Be Yourself.
That was the last advice Scout's Grandma Nora gave her before she died. Scout has spent her life trying to be anything but, but she has a chance to start anew as she moves several states away to college. She had always thought the glowing aura she saw around some people was a childhood fancy, but when it starts coming back just as she's starting her new life, she learns there was much hidden about who she truly is.
Thankfully, she has a motley crew to help her along the way: a spunky bookseller, a trustworthy pub owner, a commanding grandmother, a possible best friend, and a hot rocker boy who only has eyes for her.

Unless You Can Be A Unicorn is a NA Paranormal Romance with content appropriate for the YA audience.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Delphina this year at UtopYA. She is so stinking awesome!!

My Review
*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This one is a work of art!

Delphina Henley takes a story and weaves it around the characters so well that you are feeling every emotion that they are feeling; fear, joy, I couldn't put this one down and I read it in a 24 hour period. I am already impatiently waiting for the next one!

Love at first sight is always a favorite of mine and when our main character Scout heads off for her Freshman year she is looking for normal- which is 100% not what she is. Scout sees things, things she does not understand. Scout goes out for what is seemingly to be a fun evening with her roommate- and she finds much more than she bargains for- she finds him or did he find her??

Scout does not realize at first just how their lives are entwined or just how much she had needed to find this new "family" of hers, but once she does find them she learns more about herself than anything and she learns what it means to belong.

I would love to see a little bit more towards the end as far as the action goes, but this in no way shapes my opinion of the story or how the reality of Scout's life made me feel.
You simply MUST get this book when it comes out and you MUST tell me.... 
Do you believe in Unicorns?
