The story is about two people who go through so much pain but find comfort in each other until something (dont want to give away too much) ruins that. I couldnt imagine going through what parker and freya go through. Beautifully written story. Worth reading!
This is the first time I have read anything by Jessica Prince and I loved it. Scattered Colours is well written and the characters draw you in straight away. Freya Linden had a great life she was doing well in school had great friends and a loving family. One afternoon that happy family life is ripped away when her mother is killed, in the next few months her father finds it hard to cope without his wife and throws himself into work even finding it difficult to help his daughter at this tragic time as she reminds him to much of what he has lost. Suddenly matters are made worst when her father decides to sell the family home and move to a small town for a fresh start.
Parker Owen is the popular guy in Freya's new school he has lots of friends and the girls are falling all over themselves for a chance with him but his home life is the complete opposite with a very depressed mum that he feels he has to care for and violent father. A chance meeting on a beach begins a change in both Freya and Parkers life are they just what each other need?
The path of true love is never easy and they both have lots thrown at them is the relationship they are both working hard for strong enough to survive?
This book gets a massive 5 stars from me and I will definitely be checking out the titles from Jessica.

When Freya came home one day, her father informed her he sold the house, and they were moving to Washington, he didn't let her know ahead of time, and didn't ask her what she thought of the idea. They moved into a house he bought, which was overlooking a beach, and when they got there, she went to the beach,to sit a watch the sunset. That was where she met Parker Owen her neighbor, and a boy her age. Unbeknownst to either of them at that time, Parker and Freya had similar problems, that would help them to understand what life was like, and to find happiness wherever they could find it.
I loved this book, I was actually sad when it ended, but it taught me a lot also. No matter how old or young you are, enjoy each day, make it count, and make memories, for yourself and for those around you that you love. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Happy reading!
Freya is my favorite type of female character. She’s broken, vulnerable, and struggling to accept the hand life has dealt her, but underneath the broken pieces there is an unmistakable fighter. She’s strong and feisty and fiercely protective of her friends and that makes her someone you can’t help but adore. Jessica Prince gave this character obvious flaws and fears that infused this character with an unquestionable authenticity, allowing for readers to be easily affected by Freya. The chemistry between Freya and Parker started out a tiny spark but the more time they spend around each other the hotter that spark becomes until the fire completely engulfs them. Jessica Prince did a fantastic job bringing to life not only the physical pull between them, but the emotional one as well.
Parker’s fight for Freya was one of my favorite parts of this book. I loved the ferocity with which he pursues her and his unwavering determination to help heal her. His love for her did not overshadow his respect for her, evident in his allowing her space and time to cool-down, process, or accept the constant uncertainty of their young lives. The easy pace and methodical progression of events gave Scattered Colors an addictive quality that had me devouring this book in one sitting. This novel overflows with deep and heartbreaking emotions that will have you feeling every aspect of this story wholly. Scattered Colors is a breathtaking New Adult journey of loss, love, and living that will leave your heart feeling absolutely full.
By Jessica Prince
"My story isn't a pretty one. The bumps in the road were monumental and infinite. But it’s my story. And the one thing that holds true is this…. Despite the hardships, I made it through to the other side."
The name alone spoke to me...Scattered Colors. It could mean so many things. But this beautiful story was not what I was expecting. Jessica took me away into the story so effortlessly. I was mesmerized from the first word and I was unable to put the book down.
"Month four was when I lost what was left of the life I’d grown to know. Month four was when what little I had was stripped away completely."
The struggles between the main characters was what made the story. Heartbreak, loneliness, hopes and dreams is what Scattered Colors means to me. There were numerous times when I realized I was crying while reading Freya and Parker's stories. Times that I had a huge smile on my face from the character's journey, and goosebumps from their intense connections.
"My hands went up and gripped my hair as I began to pace. I never wanted her to know. I never wanted to see the look in her eyes reflecting at me right at that very moment."
Scattered Colors took me away to a place where there are no millionaires, no private jets, and no mansions in the sky. Just brutal, honest reality...staring you right in the face. And the only way to get through it, is to survive.
The characters are very complex with interesting back stories. The alternating POV give you an insight to how the main character feel and the struggles they face daily. There are several supporting characters that really make the story pop. I really hope that future books will cover them more as I just fell in love with so many of them, and love to hate a few others.
If you love romance novels that have a plot that drags you in a holds you there.. this is the book for you. You will be consumed, in the best of ways. Can't wait to read more books by Jessica Prince in the future.
Scattered Colors is the story of Freya, a teenage girl from Chicago who's colorful world is turned black by a devastating accident. She and her traumatized father move to the small town of Sommerspoint, Washington where she meets Parker, a teenage boy who also shares her sadness.
Freya and Parker form a friendship that quickly and full-heartedly turns into more. But an ultimatum from THE mean girl of all mean girls threatens to destroy everything.
I loved this book! It has everything I enjoy about NA books - angst, bitchy exes, all consuming love. I felt bad for Parker. I kind of wanted him to get violent with Cassidy, she so deserved it. He was in an impossible situation. But at the same time I felt bad for Freya. I would have stubbornly held a grudge too.
I was in tears through half of this book. It reminded me of my own loss a few years ago. I thought Prince captured Freya and her dad's grief spectacularly. I highly recommend. Well done!
