I 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.
Thank you so very much Southern Belle Promotions for sending me a copy of Weightless!! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂
This was my first time reading Ms.Steiner’s work and I couldn’t have had a better reading experience! It was realistic and raw which was really refreshing. My heart broke many times throughout and I couldn’t help but shed some tears. This story not only addresses subjects and struggles that aren’t usually mentioned in books but it shows how harsh words can do damage. No matter what remember you are beautiful scars , flaws, and all. Weightless embedded that into my mind. Even though it’s a very deep story with serious situations it has lighthearted moments that shows there is brightness in the dark times. I’m looking forward to picking up more of Ms.Steiner’s books soon!!
Natalie Poxton was a character that was heartbroken and trying to better herself in the aftermath. How people treated her ticked me off and angered me. She was so nice and had a great kind of humor. I could relate to her on so many levels and my heart seriously shattered. In my opinion she was so much more than she realized and shouldnt have judged herself. I extremely disliked her mother. I hoped that she would be happy in the end and live her life the way that she wanted to without interference from others.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that shows how a girl can overcome obstacles and how it takes being knocked down to truly find out what path you should take in this world. It was emotional and so very beautiful. I could have punched a few characters at times. This story will stay with me for years to come. I don’t think I’ve ever connected with heroine as much as I did with the one within this book. One-Click this heart-wrenching and awesome story! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
