Jivana was happy; she was thriving in her personal life and her career was at a phenomenal level. She was a junior marketing VP at her company and she was soon up for a promotion. She had one goal and it was to climb to the top of the corporate ladder and earn her worth. However, she gets the shock of her life when her promotion is given to the nephew of the CEO, who also happens to be her ex. With her world upside down, she finds something that will shake the core of her existence. She finds something that can give her new hope to live her life in a different way, but will she take the opportunity?

RAVE: Mythophrenia by Jivana is a modern take on the American Dream, talking about how people are ready to do whatever it takes to get what they want. I think we all can find a little of ourselves in Jivana. We all want to succeed monetarily but very few of us actually think about if that is something we really want. Jivana is a very relatable character, one that goes through the ups and downs of life just like a regular person. Her reactions were very human and real, which made me connect with her and become invested in her progress. I enjoyed how she handled herself, even when things were not going her way and she was just desperate. Her reactions were very real, which made her growth realistic for me. The pace of the novel was fast, but Jivana had a lot of time to slowly get her feet back under her and learn about herself again. I love this kind of growth where it is justified! Needless to say, I loved this book.
