Bowtie...'till I DIE.
Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.
He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.
Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.
And their deaths.
For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, it was only the beginning…
Can I just start off by saying that T.M. Frazier has become one of my favorite authors. I started reading her books when Dark Light Of Day had just been released and she put a spell on me. Every single book she has written has utterly blown. my. mind! That being said, Preppy was a highly anticipated book for me.
We got to know and love Preppy when we read King, which is the first book in this series. He's tattooed, foul-mouthed, and loves his bow ties! Samuel, A.K.A. Preppy is in a category of his own, he says what he thinks and is completely unapologetic about it! I love the way he and Dre meet, it's very unconventional to say the least, the very opposite of a meet cute. The book spans over a period of time flashing back-and-forth between past and present. We learn a lot more of what happens even before King begins, and I for one am ecstatic about it! Preppy and Dre's relationship is so very unique. Neither one of them is what you would call "normal", they each have a whole closet full of skeletons, but somehow they learn how to understand each other. One of the things I love about Frazier's writing is that her stories are always the opposite of what I expect, so I've come to realize not to expect, just read.
Frazier has a way of making cringe and laugh in the same sentence. I have become infatuated with her writing, her characters, her uniqueness! If you want a book that will make you swoon from all of the hearts and flowers being thrown around this isn't it. But I you're ready to delve into a darker, more raw, more taboo, and a little more corrupt part of yourself then READ THIS NOW! Now if I can just get my hands on the next book my life would be complete!
