***Review*** Once Upon A Tag by Anna Adams

On the Back of the Book

When David, a young French painter, unexpectedly meets Rita, an infamous Parisian street artist, his convictions are shaken to the core during a night he is unlikely to ever forget.

Pre Read Thoughts

I'm Choosing This Because:

After I review Anna Adams' first book, "A French Girl in New York" for her she asked if I'd review "Once Upon A Tag". I said yes but heard nothing back. A few weeks later I received another email off Anaa informing me that "Once Upon A Tag" was going to be free on Amazon if I was still interested. Of course I was and so I got it. I've finally got it and I'm looking forward to reading it.

Judging a Book By Its Cover:

The cover's a grower. I've only just started noticing how nice it actually is to be honest. It's very old fashioned looking yet with an urban twist due to the spray paint and graffiti. The bright colours and classicness of the cover definitely make it stand out once you've really sat back and taken in all of the different elements of the design.

Pricing the (Possible) Awesomeness:

Now after a quick search on Amazon, this book is currently retailing at 77p. Which is cheap. It's only a short story so obviously there's no print copy. I got my copy from Amazon during a promotional thing where the book was free, so though the author asked for my review I had to get my own copy so my review will be as untainted as always.

Post Read Thoughts:

Since this is only a short story this is going to be a mini review. Otherwise we could end up with a review that gives too much away.

I found this to be a charming and cute story. One of the things that I enjoyed most about Anna's full length novel, "A French Girl in New York" was her actual writing style and that's a fact that continues with "Once Upon A Tag". While the length means that it's really quick and easy to read, (no seriously, it's perfect for while you're having a cup of tea and a biscuit) I'm sad that it's so short. I feel that there could be so much more to the story and would've definitely kept reading if it had been longer. 

David - He's very snotty towards Rita at first and I didn't like that. It just seemed unfair to judge her even though she was doing wrong with the street art and all that.

Rita - She's very defensive when David confronts her but I have to say as she works out plans in her head she really warms up. Of the two main characters she was definitely my favourite. I loved how gutsy she was and how vibrant and alive she was.

Overall this is definitely a short story I would read again and again. Even though it only took a few minutes to read, I got a snapshot into an underground world in Paris that I want to dream of. I loved the twist at the end of the stories when it came to the characters and thought it was a clever addition to the tale.

My Rating


4 stars - charming, cute, but not perfect. I would've liked more. Wanting more is a great achievement for the author but as a reader I felt short changed. I could've grown attached to those characters and the chemistry they were building up. Definitely recommended to those who love YA contemporary tales that don't eat up all you time. So what are you waiting for? It's only 77p!!
