Calvin isn’t a teenager, not really; instead, he’s spent his life trying to protect his mother and sister from his alcoholic father. Calvin keeps a knife close and sleeps with one eye open, even years after his father has left the family. A summer vacation spent at their late grandfather’s estate promises him and his sister the chance to leave their problems behind.

You know when you get so caught up in an ebook that you don't even think to charge your kindle and then it dies when you're madly swiping to the next page and you want to cry?

Yes. That happened.

It's fair to say that this book is nothing like what I expected it to be.

I loved the relationship between Calvin and Cleo and how much Cleo changed - she needed to grow a pair and she did. And I loved how Natalie put such a spanner in the works.

The whole For

Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/book-tou...

I wasn’t sure what I’d think about Forecast, based on its descritpion, but I ended up enjoying the book more than I thougth I would. Calvin is one of the most realistic protagonists I’ve come across in YA literature. He knows hardships, he knows troubles, he knows what it’s like to get hurt, to protect others, what pain feels like. His reactions to things are so incredibly realistic I expected him to crawl out of the

This book is a standalone but could be part of a series if the author chooses too.
It is a bit long winded but is well written. It will make you feel different emotions.

Their mother sends them to their dead grandfathers house for the summer break alone , but for the housekeper of sorts.

I enjoy books that have a quick moving plot and adding magical elements just makes it better. No matter what age it is targeted towards. Calvin is a great character in a book filled with many wonderful characters. His grandfather’s house is extraordinary and has many secrets; if wasn’t a house then I’d be raving about the character development.

Once Calvin goes through the stone door in the forest he has the gift of foresight, but since everything that happens affects the outcome of the future th

I received a review copy

I’m not a huge reader of young adult, but I am a big fan of magical elements in my reading and this book caught my attention right from the beginning. The mysteries that surround the family were exciting and engaging, and once Calvin goes through the door, it was near impossible to put this book down. I also enjoyed the dynamic not only between Calvin and his sister, but all the relationships within the family. A very intriguing and unique read!

First I would like to thank the author Elise Stephens for giving me this book for an honest review. I love this story, the characters are amazing. They are believable and you can identify with them. I love how believable the relationship with the twins Calvin and Cleo and their father Martin. The characters had flaws, no one was perfect. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Interesting book, a story of redemption and forgiveness. Much better content than most YA, no questionable content. It was a slow start for me, but the last half went quickly.
