Sublime Karma by Peyton Garver is a Young Adult contemporary romance book. The story is written in third person and told by 2 point-of-views: Jake and Brie. The former is a football player and the latter is the new girl at school. While they both are different, they seem drawn to each other.

At the beginning of the book, Jake is a little arrogant, he plays football and in a band whom he has recently joined. He is instantly interested in the new girl, who is introvert and seems to hide something.

The characters seemed a little flat to me, and I wasn’t really happy what Brie’s brother did. I prefered reading about Jake and Ari, his best friend, rather than Jake and Brie. I’m not sure if the author has portrayed very well the depression of Brie.

Brie has a secret that nobody in school knows, her mother is distant and is often away for her work, while her brother is a genius who works for an investigating firm.

I liked how Jake and Leif cared about their own sisters. Leif would do anything for Brie and protects her even though he made some drastic decisions for this, Jake has a complicity with his younger sister that makes them both adorable.

Another thing that I like about this book is the presence of deaf and mute characters. I think Trevor is a cute child. H

The writing style was fine and the book was enjoyable. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.



About the author

As a child, Peyton called places like Livorno, Italy; Orléans, France; and Augsburg, Germany home. She has since settled in Maryland, where she earned her degree in education at Towson State University, married her sweetheart of two years, and became an instant mother to three spirited young boys before adding another son to the brood.

When she’s not teaching or writing, Peyton enjoys traveling. The Caribbean Islands have become a favorite vacation getaway for Peyton and her husband.

  1. Wonderful review Angela! I was offered this book a while back from the author as well. I really loved how Peyton touched upon so many risky subjects such as self-harm, suicide, abuse, and depression so fluidly.
