Girls Heart Books Tours: The Color Keepers by Catriona Crehan- Review & Dream Cast

The Color Keepers
By Catriona Crehan
Publication Date-May 1st

Hoping to have a good change and good ending to go with it, Emily, a 16- year-old girl from Ohio, has moved to sunny California.

Moving to a new town can be scary, especially a new school. So when Sam, the most popular kid there, looks her way, she can’t believe this is happening to her.

Everything seems to be working out fine. That is, until her mother buys an enchanted mirror by mistake.

Suddenly, Emily finds herself in a whole new world, full of talking animals, magic and more change than she was hoping for.

With the help of her new crush, Sam, and her annoyingly goofy 12-year-old brother James, Emily sets out to save their world and ours.


The Color Keepers by Catriona Crehan is a Young Adult novel with a beautiful cover-- It is honestly what made me want to read this book. I loved the irony of this blank brown/black/white cover with such a title as The Color Keepers intrigued me from the beginning.

This book is not on my normal drama level. It is definitely geared toward a younger audience and, to be honest, I don't mind that at all. While it's still not graphic or vomit inducing (the fact that's my MO says a lot about me, eh? ;D) it is still a pretty good read. The characters are all very well developed and the plot line is steady and kept at a good pace.

I am very glad I was so drawn in by the cover. Great read!

My Rating:

*If your book was made into a movie, who would you cast as the main characters?

I love doing this, as I can already envision it being a movie! That would be so cool,right?

Emily, our main character would HAVE to be played by Hailee Steinfeld. I loved her in True Grit, she’s a fantastic actress.

Sam, her crush, would be awesome if played by Josh Hutcherson, from The Hunger Games. I think he’s a great actor and would pull off Sam, perfectly!

Her brother, the annoying and goofy kid James, would be played by Asa Butterfield. He was the star of “Hugo”. I loved that movie. I remembered seeing it and thinking, he would be PERFECT for James!

Last but not least, The Crow Queen... HAS to be played by Liv Tyler. I’ve only ever seen her in nice roles. It would be a great change to see her play someone evil. Not to mention the Crow Queen is supposed to be extremely beautiful and she fits the bill :)
