For sixteen year old Cami, the clicks won’t stop. They’re telling her to fall in love with the wrong twin, that her family is hiding something, and that Pinhold, her pristine Island home, is in danger.

It’s hard to put exactly into words what I thought of Clicks. While it was very different and original, I’m not sure I fully appreciated it, because it left me confused most of the time.

The best part of this story is definitely the originality. There are a bunch of teenage twins all living on the same Island. These twins can communicate telepathically with each other, and also have a dolphin to communicate with, kind of like a familiar with witches. But rather than a fantastical explanation for

When the author contacted AOR to request a review, I snapped this one up. YA Sci-Fi is my genre and the blurb was really exciting. A story about surf carnivals and dolphins that mixes in sci-fi. How refreshing!

Good friends, the beach, hot boys, healthy sports competition, and a mystery; YES! Clicks was a good read. The mystery of the drownings and the swimmers ‘going down’ (aka comatose) was intriguing and kept me guessing right until the end of the story. Although it moved a little fast for my

This novel reminded me of a mix between Sarah Dessen and Stephen King. It's full of twists and turns and is far from predictable. I suggest this novel to anyone who enjoys a book that makes them think and to anyone who loves a cute teenage romance.

Let me be clear that two stars is generous. After all, I did learn quite a bit about dolphins and the community of ocean born sports enthusiasts. I also found the budding relationship of two beautiful teenagers to be endearing.

I am afraid that is where my mediocre praise ends.

The characterization, or lack thereof, in the novel was completely one dimensional. Perhaps even less. All the characters fit into one of two categories; those who fit into The Guard run community of Pinhold and those who

I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting when I decided to be a part of the tour for Clicks by Amy Evans, but not only was the plot creative and well thought out, but the idea was absolutely original. Clicks follows 17-year-old Cami and her journey for the truth through a past shrouded in mystery and deception.

When Pinhold residents start falling prey to an unknown illness involving the vast waters and dolphins, Cami finds herself in a race to save her twins life and figure out what in t

This novel is perfect for summer: beaches, surfing, swimming with dolphins and first love. It is not, however, just an easy breezy beach book. There is action, adventure, deception and a medical mystery that will keep you reading (and guessing) until the very end.

Cami is a sixteen year old girl,living in a small island which holds surfing and swimming contests every year,and is currently falling in love with her best friend's brother. What will happen when swimmers start getting hurt and drown during the contests,what will happen if it happens to her own brother?

Well this book wasn't at all what I had expected,it surprised me, if you don't love dolphins be aware,this book isn't for you,you will get bored,but it still is an exciting,different summer read.

I've only read chapter 1, so I don't know if it got better after that.
From what I've seen in chapter one, it wasn't very compelling. There was too much narrative, and explaining of their island traditions, and not enough action. I need a reason to follow a character through the whole book. Introducing the character's island, is not the same as introducing the character. I think that the island or their particular culture could be introduced a little later on after we've gotten hooked on a stron

WOW! A different novel but amazing. A story about twins and dolphins and how they communicate and how they came to be. It has your romance, happiness, sadness - everything you could want in a book, plus swimming :) A girl's quest to find out why what's happening is happening and how to fix it. Can't wait to read more from this author!!!

To see my full review:

This is the first YA novel I’ve seen that’s been classified as environmental fiction, and I was so intrigued by that classification that I knew I had to read it, especially because my county is adding an entire unit to the end of 10th grade year in which students study their role in the world and environment. And, what a great story it is! Filled with mystery and intrigue, as well as homage to the ocean and dolphins, in particular, Cl

This was a really great read. I love how the people on the island are tied to the dolphins and culture Amy Evans has built surrounding this relationship--I would have loved to see more of it and look forward to learning more about these ties and the history surrounding the islanders in the future books.

The story is centered around Cami, who comes from a lineage tied to the dolphins surrounding the island and who is also special in that she is one twin from the five sets of twins in her generati

The idea was intriguing, and whilst I enjoyed the mix of science and mystic ritual it never truly came to force. There wasn't enough to ground me in the story as everything became too much about the emotional turmoil of Cami, who started out as a fun loving and determined character and spiralled into a whiny, emotional wreck. She encountered resilience from the adults and openly defies them which is fine, but nobody ever sets her straight, not even when she risks others' lives on a hunch. I foun ...more

This was an interesting read!! I thought the premise was very original, and I was immediately drawn in from the start with the mention of different-colored eyes and telepathic twins. Because there were so many sets of twins, I was initially a bit overwhelmed by all the new characters, but the way that they were introduced and continued to be described later really helped me get a handle on them; I never felt that I couldn't tell them apart.

With this initial groundwork, I was expecting a complete

This book had my interest the first time I read the concept, because it was so unique. The story totally transported me to living on an island, with a little magic, a little mystery, and some wonderful relationships. Again, SUPER unique. Definitely worth reading.

Content warning: This book is like a PG-13 movie (but cleaner). The language is entirely tame until one little word pops up in dialog.

This book is so good it's actually hard to put into words how I feel about it. It "clicks"!

What I liked: I found the multiple sets of twins, the dolphins, and the mystery surrounding the community intriguing. Cami wasn't bad as far as main characters go and I enjoyed the surfing and water aspect of the book.

What I found lacking: I really disliked the insta-love for Blake. He wasn't very enjoyable as a character and since Cami always preferred his twin to him up until the accident, I found her sudden attraction to him ridiculous. I also found the book hard to get into origina

I have to say I really enjoyed this book. It was a great YA novel that I found quite fascinating and was intrigued by the science that is between humans and dolphins and that was actually a large part of the story.

I cannot even put into words how happy I was to find a book that had dolphins in it, as a primary star to the story and not just there. I loved this book and the story. It was such an original story that kept me guessing from chapter one. The twins in this book all had a way to communicate with each other that they call "clicks". Is this just an anomaly for the twins or does it mean something more? I was gripped to the last page to find out what was going on and when everything would work out. T ...more

This book instantly sucked me in to the island of Pinhold, where love is in bloom, myths abound, and the balance between man and nature has begun to totter precariously. Clicks is a fantastic debut that kept me glued to the page. Amy Evans has created an idyllic island world, sprinkled in a healthy dose of romance, and topped it all off with a series of charming dolphin interactions. Her dialogue is quick and realistic, her characters crafted with depth and care, and her plot riddled with so man ...more

I have to say that I loved this book. It was well written. The setting of the island, the water, and the sun make this a great summer read. Unlike most summer reads however, this is no regular plot line to a story. Be prepared for action, plot twists, secrets, romance, and never quite knowing what is coming next. I have to say that I read this book, then turned it over to my daughter to read. She fell instantly in love with the story. I love the fact that she and I were able to read a story, lov ...more

This book was completely unlike what I had been expecting.....I was expecting a book of dolphin shifters, but got a kind of medical drama. Even though this was not what I was expecting I really enjoyed the story and am waiting for the sequel. According to the back of the book the sequel should be out already, but I can't find it. I got caught up in the twins and how they are connected to their dolphins....and where the connection truly comes from! This was my first book from this author and I wi ...more

Where to begin. This book is a wonderful, fresh take on paranormal, eco-awareness and romance. The author's ability to immerse you into the story is unbelievable. From the moment I started I knew this would be a book I had to finish immediately. At one point I even laughed out loud. My parents thought I was nuts but I didn't care this book had me that hard. I cannot wait to read more from Amy Evans. Consider me and official Click-o-holic!

The quintessential summer read for YA sci-fi folks. I like the surefooted writing. Surfers and bikinis and a Surf Carnival, but with a paranormal slant. The Universe is telling Cami something. There are mirror twins, The Elders, an albino...and a troubling romance. Paradise is not what it seems. What's not to like? An enjoyable read!

Loved it

I really liked this was easy to read and kept me hooked. and I loved the idea that something like this could really be possible. we have heard stories in the news of dolphins saving people in the water and of people swimming with the dolphins so maybe just maybe we are connected.people love dolphins and dolphins love people how cool is that.

The story was unique but I found the blurb misleading in the romance department. This made me expect something different to happen with her relationship. I don't know if this gave me preconceived judgments on certain characters if I actually felt like they didn't fit. The story didn't evoke a lot of emotion for me and I found it too long for the content.

I like the IDEA of this book. The problems are multiple: poor editing, poor characterization, and too many convenient scenarios.
