About this deal

Once Alice understands her skill, she manages to change how she thinks about it and uses it which makes for interesting and thought-provoking reading. Even more so – what does Alice do when face-to-face with someone whose intentions appear dark (just think playgrounds full of kids!

ROAR will be published in the UK and Ireland in Autumn 2018 by HarperCollins UK, and in Spring 2019 in the US by Grand Central Publishing. First off if this was the first book of Cecelia I had read I would not read any more, I also feel if this is how her books are going to be from now on I don’t think I will bother in future.She and her books have won numerous awards, including the Irish Book Award for Popular Fiction for The Year I Met You . Alice has a rare condition – Synesthesia, due to which she see colours as a sort of aura when she sees people. When she's young, she doesn't know what to do with them, but eventually, she realises different colours mean different things.

Like a baby is associated with gold color, it’s fascinating when Alice knows that her teacher is pregnant before her teacher knows herself.

Freckles was about a young woman trying to work out ‘who’ she was through those with whom she’s connected. Colours represent certain emotions, so she can see things before they happen by how people feel in the build up, and she can tell when people are being deceitful.

Granted, characters can be whoever they want to be, but their was such strong threads of martyrdom and victimhood in Alice, along with the paradox of the vilification and glorification of motherhood (with enmeshment in both accounts)—a real 'family is everything' message. I was entrapped by this novel immediately, the ability to see people from their aura certainly puts a different perspective on things but then there are the rare people who have no colour, how do you deal with those?
