Helemonade: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES meets Beyoncé’s Lemonade
Lemonade is the greatest piece of art to grace our eyes and ears this year, possibly ever. Queen Bey totally gets us, and we think she’s also speaking to one of our favorite YA ladies – Helene, who slays in An Ember in the Ashes but keeps getting overlooked by Elias, the boy she loves. Don’t believe us? Welcome to #Helemonade.
**spoilers ahead if you haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes yet**
When Helene shows up to the party and is all fine and Elias is like “oh, she’s hot” but then doesn’t appreciate.
When she’s like “better call Becky with the good hair” and obviously Laia = Becky.
When she’s fighting with Elias and he’s about to kiss her but gets distracted by Laia.
When she outright tells him at the end that “loving you is the worst thing that has ever happened to me.”
When Elias asked Helene to heal Laia and she’s like wut.
When she’s in the last trial and Elias is about to choose Laia and Helene is like, K SO I MEAN NOTHING.
When other guys are interested and she’s like, “Why do I still love this fool?”
Stay fabulous, Helene. #Helemonade.
