Just your average high school science geek…or not? When a haphazard smattering of freckles on her arm start to change causing a series of unnerving hallucinations and odd side effects that only Anna seems to notice, she can’t help but wonder if she’s losing her mind or if there truly is something to the visions. Her roller coaster senior year of high school may make it easy for her to live in denial, but she'll…
4.3Overall Score


This is the first book I've read from this author but I really enjoyed it. I haven't read a book about space in a while and never with such strong astronomy references but I found this book amazing.

First off, the story line was very interesting…once it started taking off. A lot of the book was describing Anna’s day to day & i didn’t find a lot of plot building at first. The synopsis gives hints about some supernatural elements…but when they surface in the book i found them sorta questionable. Towards the end however there is a huge twist and you realize exactly what’s going on. I guess my description here may sound confusing…but once you start reading you’ll probably understand. In the end, i very much appreciated all the detail and description that was put into the beginning of the story.

The characters were written awesome. My faves were Anna herself along with Steve and Jared (cough, cough). I also liked Heather and Andela. I disliked Michael and most of his friends, lol. As far as Anna’s role, i think see was very well written and realistic. She has pretty strong morals and a love for science, which i can def appreciate. She did show slight signs of immaturity…but she is a teenager.

This author’s writing overall was very detailed and descriptive. A few times she mentioned someones facial expression or outfit, which had nothing to do with the actual story line but it really does enhance my visual of the scene in my head. On the dreams and daydreams parts, i could clearly see, hear, smell & feel the scene. The author did an excellent job in that area.

Overall, i didn’t really find anything wrong with the story. The ending was a slight cliffhanger….and of course, the next book isn’t out. Haha, why do i always do this to myself? Lol. Im excited for book 2 though. Id recommended this to anyone who likes space books, science or ya in general. It does have a lot of astronomy and science but its overall story should have a wide appeal. There was no drinking or sex, only a slight reference to drugs.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
