Serenity is first book of Forever series. It’s brilliant and I loved it.
Blurb (in my words)–
This novel featuring a 17-yr-old, Serenity. She was born different, had a gift to see aura of people, having a dreams of brown cloaked woman who giving signs to her in her life.

When I read ‘Blue Water’, India was a new author to me, I loved that book and I had a feeling that I’m going to like all of her books. After reading this book, I think it is confirmed now and I’m going to add her to my favorite authors list. I feel a kind of challenge in writing the review of this book because it’s such an epic novel that I don’t have words to describe it. Even I take longer time to read this book than usual, as I needed a break in between so that I can grasp this amazing book properly. Okay I’m doing all the talking this time which is not my style of review so, back Yesha mode! 😉
My favorite line from the book:
“Belief is one of the strongest strength of all mankind, some just choose not to use its power…”
This book is about social abuse and bully, how that can affect so deeply to a person, struggle of coming out of that suffering to a whole peaceful person. How friendship and love can heal anything in life.
Characters- Crew – the Wheel of this ship – Serenity, Dereck, Josh, Jolene, Rocco, and Skyler- they were so adorable. I wish such friends in everyone’s life. The boys were so loving and I could feel the pain of girls. I loved Josh and Jolene the most in the book, without them I can’t imagine the life of other crew member. The love between these couples- Josh and Jolene, Dereck and Serenity, Rocco and Sky- was incredible.
What I liked in this book- Everything…! Characters, their powerful emotions, love and friendship of crew- they just drew me in their world and I was lost in them. Poems and songs- they were remarkable. I like how India include music in her books, it make them so unique. Deep moral behind the story that can motivate children/women who has faced abuse in their life.
If I start writing all the points in detail what touched me and what understood from the book, I will end up writing a short story. So, I will save you from that pain and will just say – read it.
I was literally crying from climax to the end. This part of the book touched me the most. I am going to read this whole series.
It’s cocktail of dysfunctional family, abuse, friendship, funny, happy and lovely moments, heart-wrenching agony, and love.
Who should read it? I recommend it to everyone.
