REMEMBER UKRAINE NOW ReadingReindeer (readingreindeerproximacentauri) | 42 comments

Julia’s family is moving to the Amazon, from London, with next to no notice at all. Her father has found a new position there, and hopes to get out from under the family’s financial difficulties. In a sense, Julia and her mother ought to be happy for the trip, because her mother’s mother is an Amazon native, a member of the Kanauyed tribe. But Julia’s mother has always distanced herself from that heritage, which Julia can’t understand, and doesn’t want to leave London life-neither does Julia. But it seems they have no choice. What it all amounts to is a tremendous uproar for a sixteen-year-old, who has to abandon her school friends, her home, and her Grandmother. Adding to her anxiety is a night-before-departure dream that escalates from simply puzzling, to bizarre, to terrifying and painful.

“Swirls” is more than just a YA-adolescent with tribulations story, though, and Julia’s dream will prove both prophetic-and incredible. Author Hershey does a fine job of weaving in paranormal and science fiction elements, while keeping the story line level and the reader intrigued but not skeptical or scoffing. In other words, the suspension of disbelief comes easily. This novel is listed as for YA readers or younger, but it’s certainly effective for older-that is, adult readers-as well.

Elsa Carrion (ecarrion) Done great job, loved it! And here are the links.

I tried to place it on smashwords but could not since I did not purchase it from there. They really need to change that. If the book is listed and we are a member why not let us leave the review. Oh well I tried.

Thanks again!

Alana ~ The Book Pimp (loonyalana) | 501 comments If it makes you feel any better- in the last month my whole family got taken down just before Easter with bronchitis and I also had a car accident a week ago. I'm not just being lazy
