Quinn is the oldest of the Avery sisters and is struggling to uphold her perfect and brilliant demeanor. When her mom lost her job, everything changed for the sisters. Quinn was stuck with the “good girl” role and is working hard to keep the family together. However, once they start moving out of their house, Quinn starts rebelling and doing all the things she couldn’t do. As her image slowly slips away, Quinn starts seeing what she was missing, including love. The Avery sisters are heartwarming and realistic, and so are their methods to cope with tragedy. The author creates, once again, likable characters that will make us engaged and emotionally attached. “Brilliant” is, in fact, absolutely brilliant. Rating:4.5/5

Quinn was definitely my favorite of the three sisters. My heart broke when she lost her red room.
