This is a story I would recommend reading. Mar 17, Thomas Horton rated it it was amazing. This is the first book I've read by Holly Tierney-Bedord, and I found in her nameless, self-effacing, neurotic narrator a poignant connection. Living in the shadow of her older sister Valencia even long after her untimely death, the journey from outcast little girl to a woman with a charmed life she can't seem to fully appreciate is all too relatable. I will say first that Ms. Tierney-Bedord is a fine writer. She needs a better proofreader, because there were a couple of bothersome typos, but t This is the first book I've read by Holly Tierney-Bedord, and I found in her nameless, self-effacing, neurotic narrator a poignant connection.
She needs a better proofreader, because there were a couple of bothersome typos, but that's become the way of reading in the digital age. Her wry wit is indomitable, and she casts her narrator into discomfiting situations that are just absurd enough to give a droll smile, but not so wacky that it feels like an acid trip. There were a number of hints or perhaps, allegations that she could have done more with, but I don't begrudge an author leaving something to her readers' imaginations.
There were times and situations where I wish she'd fleshed things about a bit more. Lots of loose ends, but that's not necessarily bad. Still, I won't apologize for giving this five stars, despite my irked dissatisfaction with the ending. I won't give any spoilers away, but when she had a narrative voice so strong leading us through the story, it was haphazard and felt a bit bolted-on to shift POV in the last chapter. I was hoping for a stronger resolution.
Nonetheless, I think the craftsmanship of the novel deserves the benefit of the doubt, so instead of tottering on the line and giving it four stars, I will round it up to five. It was a captivating, intriguing read. Apr 08, Carrie rated it it was amazing.
This was a brilliant book and a crazy ride. The characters are wonderful and the story line is amazing and original. Once I got started, I could not put this book down. In this book almost every other chapter is a switch between present day and the past when our narrator was a kid.

Her older brother Van and his twin Valencia die in a car crash when she is around eleven years old, after that her life became even more bleak than she already felt it was. I feel devastated that she grows up the way she did with her parents treating her as if she was invisible and forgetting they had another daughter. She basically lives her life believing she is ugly, untalented, dumb and not worth anything to anyone.
She has no friends and the only person she can rely on is her husband Adrian. Adrian is a touchy subject for me. On one hand I do believe he has fallen in love with her, and does want to spend forever with her, on the other hand there are many secrets that his wife discovers that basically ruin anything they would have in the future. I solely blame him for not being completely honest with her from the beginning and letting her know what happened when he was younger that lead to them meeting and knowing each other.
There are so many twists in this book, some I saw coming and some I did not. The ending is left somewhat open, so I am hoping for a second book to continue on the crazy information we find out in the end. I would definitely recommend this book, it is very entertaining, mysterious and a great story. Apr 05, Anna Hirsch rated it really liked it. Surviving Valencia by Holly Tierney-Bedord 4 Stars This is a story about a girl who lives in the shadow of her sister, struggling to find her self worth and become someone. Growing up in a household with her older siblings Van and Valencia was hard.
The twins were practically perfect. Van the jock and Valencia the cheerleader. Both were vivacious, friendly and popular. She was the complete opposite. She was bland, introverted and had no friends.

She was invisi Surviving Valencia by Holly Tierney-Bedord 4 Stars This is a story about a girl who lives in the shadow of her sister, struggling to find her self worth and become someone. She was invisible. Valencia was the only one who saw her.
She was twelve when they died. Her life was forever changed. Somehow seemingly impossibly, it got worse. Her parents took their anguish out on her. They yelled at her, grounded her or ignored her. All she ever wanted was to fit in and be accepted. The book is written from the first person point of view which allows us to fully understand what she is feeling. Never once throughout the book do we learn her name. I think the author was smart in doing this. Her whole life is dedicated to living vicariously through others and not making waves. It is a sad story of a depressed woman living in the past and struggling to deal with specifically the loss of her sister.
This book was cleverly written with many twists and surprises that you never see coming. This is definitely not a joyous story with a happily ever after ending. It is a book with much deeper meanings, showing how death affects everyone differently. The author shows how one event can change your life drastically.
It was a gripping tale of self discovery. Apr 07, E. Surviving Valencia by Holly Tierney-Bedord was an okay read, that will keep you guessing. Not my first read from this author, so I was excited to get my hands on this read. This book was interesting, and has a good plot line, but at times it fell flat, and there are some loos ends that aren't sitting well with me.
The transitions between the past and present were done well, and it helped tie some of the plot points together.

The ending was a little off putting as well, and I do kind of get it, but at the same time it was bittersweet and not satisfying. But again, in a weird way, it fit. One point I would love to make, is that, you never find out what the younger sisters name is.
And it was something that I didn't notice until I stopped reading and started to process, and forming my review. Very well done, and a nice added touch to make this read more layered and complex. Overall this isn't a bad story, it has lots of good things, but at the same time, when the MC was narrating it was like she rambled and nothing came to a close. This made certain plot points confusing and unbalanced.
But, this book will keep you on your toes with its unfolding mystery, and trips to the past. This books gets my recommendation and my stamp of approval. Happy Reading -E.

This book is the story of a woman on a voyage of self-discovery. In her younger years she lived totally in the shadow of her siblings, twins Van and Valencia.
When Surviving Valencia is book by Holly Tierney-Bedord that will really make you evaluate your life. When her siblings died in a car accident her parents became even more weird than they had been before. Her parent definitely acted as if they had some sort of personality disorder. Always they strange left out kid growing up, our main character is now married to artist Adrian and is trying to find her way in life.
Jumping back and forward from the present day to the past, I did at times find this book a little difficult to follow. The author does a great job of developing the character and we really get into the head of the main character. This book is really interesting and thought provoking and I enjoyed it very much.

Van and Valencia die in a car crash on their way home from college for Thanksgiving. Everyone's life is changed. The story flashes back between the present and the past. As I write this review, I can't tell you the main character's name, because I don't believe it is every mentioned in the book. Which makes sense considering how she feels invisible all the time. That's actually pretty brillia Van and Valencia are the perfect kids for their parents. That's actually pretty brilliant!
The story is good, but I felt some of the flashbacks were not necessary for the book and made it feel slow to me. Things picked up for me when the envelopes started showing up. I found myself getting aggravated with her because she comes across so wishy washy and she is always giving into Adrian and never seems to stand up for herself. Until the end of the book, then I cheered for her. When her past comes back to haunt her, and Adrian, things get really interesting.
I would have liked to have seen more emphasis on this. While the ending does make sense with the way the book went, you still can't help but want to see a tearful reunion. But, like I said, the ending actually makes sense. Surviving Valencia was an emotional 5 star read. This was my first read from this author. She pulled me right in with her writing. She is now happily married to Adrian trying to move on with her life. They were the popular kids in high school and could do no wrong.

Your heart broke for the things this poor girl went through. Things take some interesting twists when Adrian gets a mysterious letter in the mail. Are things as great as they appear to be in their marriage? There is so much more that goes on in this great read. There are several twists and turns. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. I despised Valencia's parents, they were horrible. Overall I really enjoyed this read, I was pulled in by the story, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to see my home town mentioned as well, considering we are in a rural area of Wisconsin.
I look forward to reading more from this author. Mar 03, Maura rated it really liked it. Her shorts are light and fluffy and very uncomplicated reads. I chose this book purely on the author's name and did not read the blurb before cracking the binding. It was very different from the stories I've read from her before. This is a story that switches between past which reminded me of many of my favorite childhood things and present and always in the same "voice".
This story is basically told from a single point of view. We shall ca 3. We shall call her "little sister" because I don't think we ever really learn her name.
The story is full of mysteries and suspense and lots of twists and turns. As I was reading, I thought I knew where this story was going but that was not the case at all. It held my interest but at times I was very confused and a little disinterested. I was very surprised by some of her actions. This was an interesting story but the ending I have questions!!
I wonder if there is a crossover story that would answer these questions. I shall go investigate.

The more I got into the story the more I began to understand about the characters and their story. I sometimes find books that go back and forward in time confusing but I think that this book needed that to enable me as a reader to fully understand how the events of the past have influenced the lives of the characters in the present.
I think that the author wove a very original tale that whilst it took while to get into I am really glad that I read it! Their sister, always feeling invisible, never even divulges her name to the reader. This fascinating story stayed with me, long after the book was over. I really did not want to put it down! My mind kept floating back to the story when I was unable to read more, always curious about what would happen or what I would find out.
A mystery about a sister who survives the death of her older siblings. Years after feeling like she was still living under her dead sisters shadow, she finally feels complete in her life with her husband only to face the fact that everything may not be as it seems. Wow that sounded weird but we'll go with it. Sounds almost blurb-y? Is that even a word? Just ignore, I'm in a weird place today :P I really liked the book.
I love mysteries and this was just a great story. I loved the shiftin A mystery about a sister who survives the death of her older siblings.

Surviving Valencia is definitely one of those difficult books for me to review. I am torn in a lot of ways.

I can see where we could almost get another novel someday out of this storyline from Holly Tierney-Bedord, and I would not complain. I would simply hope it would maybe answer some of those gaps that are still there.
I truly felt a lot of compassion and longing for our main character here throughout the entire novel and truly wanted to just hold her. Anywho, the writing it strong and beautiful, vivid and flawless much like all of Holly Tierney-Bedords novels, and I am eager to see what we will get next from her!
