Chasing Shadows

Read Chasing Shadows

N’t make you bulletproofAfter Holly and Savitri are coming unglued Holly says she’s chasing Corey’s killer chasing revenge Savitri fears Holly’s just running wild and leaving her behind Friends should stand by each other in times of crisis But ca Actual rating 25 starsFor reviews Cover Snark and visit A Reader of FictionsChasing Shadows didn’t get any marketing to speak of and I really didn’t know much about it What lured me into reuesting it was the mixed media element the combination of a regular novel and graphic novel Turns out Chasing Shadows is just as uniue as that suggests Despite there being a whole lot to like about it the book missed worming its way into my heart and I ended up feeling rather bored a lot of the timeChasing Shadows has a great hook The first couple of chapters are incredibly intense Holly Corey and Savitri are free running through the city leaping from rooftop to rooftop doing flips and handstands Holly and Corey are twins daring and willing to take risks Savitri’s the careful one the one who might be heading off to Stanford in the fall and leaving her best friend and boyfriend behind As they’re confronting this fact a shooting comes out of nowhere killing Corey and sending Holly into a comaBasically my jaw was on the floor Before you get on me about spoilers this all happens before page 20 It’s intense and terrifying and random I thought this was going to be totally my thing but then the book got weird The graphic novel sections then often show Corey in death where Holly’s trying to save him from Kortha an evil snake man Apparently this mixes a lot of Hindu mythology learned from Savitri but it was a bit much for me Every time that happened I was thrown out of the book and going “REALLY” It’s a uniue idea and I do like the way that Avasthi blended in Hindu mythology so I think it will work for some readers than it did for meSavitri is definitely the best character She works really hard to be a good friend to Holly who’s going off her rocker while also trying to deal with the death of the boy she loved For once a book depicts a POC character without making a HUGE deal out of her or having her end up being a terrible person Savitri’s the one who’s got it all together She’s smart she’s a planner and she’s a really good person There is mention of her heritage and it’s obviously important to her but Savitri is also very blended into American cultureChasing Shadows is often startling and terrifying If you connect emotionally to the characters events will probably ruin you On the one hand I did love the subject matter dealing with grief in the wake of Corey’s death but I just wasn’t sure if Holly’s reaction was realistic or not Her insanity after such a tragedy particularly knowing he was right next to her when he died and probably saved her life does seem possible but the whole thing with Kortha and the Leopardess her favorite superhero was so ridiculous I had trouble taking it seriouslyI also ended up struggling with the graphic novel sections They always happened in Holly’s point of view but she also had prose POV too It seems like the graphic novel bits are meant to represent her madness but it’s stated at one point that she’s very visual and that’s not a crazy thing to be It would have worked better for me if Holly were ALL graphic novel not just when she’s going off the rails because I don’t like the comments that makes on a visual thinkerUltimately I think Chasing Shadows has a lot of draws free running mental health and diversity Though I didn’t love it I would definitely recommend it
