Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now Reviews
I absolutely loved this book. The seven day ride with Tiffany Sly was amazing. I enjoyed the emotional ups and downs. I laughed, cried, was angry right along with Tiffany. Tiffany suffered from PTSD and as an anxiety sufferer I could relate to all the feelings she felt when going through those moments. I loved being left in suspense to the very ending. I give this book the five stars it deserves and recommend it to everyone especially those who can relate to PTSD.
This is an incredibly complex novel, and one that fits a lot into it's short timeframe, which was fully impressive. I loved Tiffany Sly and I love all the pieces of her that Dana L. Daviw uses for her story.
Above all this was a story about family (Grace, if you're reading this: there's no romance!). To Tiffanny, family has meant one thing: her mother and grandmother. Now, her mother is dead and her grandmother is in Chicago, and Tiffany has a new family and more questions than she's ever had be ...more
First things first: That. Cover. To be honest, that's what initially drew me to Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now, but as soon as I started this book, I simply could not stop. I started this book yesterday and here I am, devastated!
Okay, let me back up a bit and start with the premise. In this book, we're introduced to Tiffany, who just turned 16 and is flying to Los Angeles from Chicago to meet a man whom she's been told is her father; however, she's never met him and has no desire to start a new life ...more
2.5 stars. RTC! While the anxiety representation was good, the amount of ableist language ruined the book for me...
I feel like someone just threw an entire box of COMPLICATED EMOTIONS at me. This book made me very angry at times, but also I'm intensely impressed with it and absolutely loved Tiffany like nothing else!! I raged at the bad and cheered for the good...a lot went down ok. It's a lot to digest.
The story follows Tiffany Sly who's going to live with her estranged dad. She doesn't know he has kids though, so it's like BOOM she gets hit with an instant family. And I'm not even kidding: her dad is an ab ...more
This was a really fast and absorbing read that pairs really nicely with HOME AND AWAY by Candice Montgomery, thematically. I loved the touch of their family being Jehovah's Witnesses, because that's really not something I've seen in YA (and now I'd really love to see a YA from the POV of a teen who actually is one, especially if they embrace and love it). Will definitely be picking up whatever Davis writes next.
So I really liked this book! I was excited when I bought it but when I started reading it I had some doubts whether I would actually like it or not but luckily I did. I gave it 4 stars because there were a few things that felt weird within the book (like how strong of a topic religion was) but I feel that confusion stemmed from my own likes and dislikes rather than the authors writing. Though, there is one character that kind of disappears halfway through the book and it made me question why he ...more
This book was amazing. I loved Tiffany and Marcus, loved reading about their truths. Highly recommend this one for anyone who feels out of place. <3
