Book Review: Bubble World

Bubble World by Carol Snow

Freesia’s life is perfect. She lives on the beautiful tropical island of Agalinas, surrounded by idyllic weather, fancy dress shops, and peacocks who sing her favorite song to wake her up in the morning. She has so many outfits she could wear a different one every day for a year and not run out.

Lately things on the island may have been a bit flippy: sudden blackouts, students disappearing, even Freesia’s reflection looking slightly . . . off. But in Freesia’s experience, it’s better not to think about things like that too much.

Unfortunately for her, these signs are more than random blips in the universe. In Bubble World by Carol Snow, Freesia’s perfect bubble is about to pop. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

When we first meet Freesia, she seems to have it all:  a beautiful house on a magical island, a loving family, beautiful friends, a closet full of gorgeous clothes, and a perfect life of no responsibility.
But you know that old saying about if it's too good to be true...

Freesia doesn't pay too much attention to the little things, but even she eventually notices that not everything is as it appears. What's with all of the black-outs lately? The odd glitches? The nasty nightmare where she's in a little dark room and her reflection isn't her own? Too scary to ignore, but she's not sure what it all means.

Found the premise of this book fascinating, as we discover alongside Freesia that her perfect life in paradise is not quite what it seems. Part of the fascination is that I could see her situation becoming a reality not too far down the road (if it's not already here)!

This is a fun, bubbly story that makes a great summer read! Recommended for anyone looking for a fast read or something light and fluffy for the beach.

  1. A beautiful house on a magical island, a loving family, beautiful friends, a closet full of gorgeous clothes, and a perfect life of no responsibility? Grief, I'm hating Freesia already.

    Seriously though, this sounds like a fun read. Thanks for the recommendation.
