    Ruby Red Review À 108 Ruby RedThe romance was what ruined this book for me I loved the whole plot the adventurous start and the mysterious way of dragging me in the plotline I loved Ruby’s thoughts but at the same time thought she lacked in character She’s beautiful okay but that’s about it I don’t know anything else about her –she has basically no flaws which makes it a nose wrinkling readAnd don’t get me started on how terribly the romance ruined this book I loved the beauty of this story; the way a girl hides from the world because she mixes with those who’re considered below her Also the author did a wonderful job of basing this on a true

    Ruby Red Review À 108 Ruby RedThis is one of the best books I've read in a while and I'd highly recommend it Its a young adult fictional novel that deals with an historical event that we don't usually see in YA but it doesn't feel like you're reading a historical book which is in my opinion the way it should be The synopsis is a little misleading because the romance was not in my mind the main plot in the novel There was much to this bookThis book seems to be relatively unknown not one of my 200 goodread friends had read or even added it to their to read shelf I definitely think this should changeThis novel is set in 70's South Africa during Apartheid I have little to no knowledge of this era but it was in very simple terms the segregation of whites and blacks There was also extreme tension between two white races; the English and the Afrikaner peoplesRuby Winters our protagonist belon

    Ruby Red Review À 108 Ruby RedI don't think this is my kind of book sadlyI'm not into romance and I don't think the one in this book was done well It pretty much went like thisThe boy You're the hottest girl I know–let's make out in a boatRuby I think you're hot too Let'sSeriously the protagonist has chemistry with this black artist chilling in her house that she thinks of as a big brother The boyfriend's a better plot device than character and the only reason they seem like to like each other in the first place is because they're both attractive yawn The main character was bland and every character was one dimensional her dad was a wannabe Atticus her mom was petite pretty boy was bad Uncle D was flamboyant and the black lady who

    Ruby Red Review À 108 Ruby RedSet in 1976 in South Africa Ruby Red describes the life of 17 year old Ruby Winters whose parents have no black servants and do not believe in discrimination based on skin color This in itself was revolutionary in South Africa reigned by the Apartheid regime The fact that Ruby’s mother has an art gallery and is involved with black township artists giving them a chance to express the injustice done against them even adds to the fact that Ruby has to hide her family life from everyone she knows At school she behaves like a model student so she can just blend in but at the same time she has the feeling she has to hide who she really is Added to this societal commentary is a love story between English Ruby and Afrikaans Johann that has to show that Apartheid wasn’t

    Ruby Red Review À 108 Ruby RedIt was okay I thought the idea was wonderful but it just wasn’t pulled off as well as it should have been and the characters didn’t grasp me as much as they could This book is written with uite ‘flowery’‘poetic’ language and it just didn’t work for me There were also multiple incidents of foreshadowing which became tiresome after the third as they were unnecessary It’s a shameEDIT it is now 3 months later and I saw this on my bookshelf I couldn’t even remember whether I had read it never mind what ha
