Review of The Earth Painter

When a self-conscious young woman discovers the boy in drama class is actually the immortal who painted the world into being, she becomes the target of another painter who hates humanity.The Earth Painter is a Young Adult Supernatural Romance set in the small mill town of Chesnee, SC. It revolves around Holly Scruggs, whose family has just moved back to Chesnee after her dad lost his job along with pretty much everything they owned. Her image conscious parents correct her to the point of brokenness until she meets Theo. He is the artist responsible for all the beauty of the land and he thinks Holly is beautiful too. Together they will fight against Fritz, the water painter who hates humans and is hiding a secret under the high school.


Whenever a book can evoke any kind of emotion I consider it a good read. I loved The Earth Painter with its beautifully painted images and its haunting sadness. I love the world that Lee created. I wanted to know what was special about Holly and I despised her mother. I connected with all the characters in the book and that is an important part of good story telling.

The end left me wanting more, and that is another important part of good story telling. I think everyone should read this book! It is beautifully written and really makes you think.
