*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
Anna is about a typical high school teen who finds a strange scattering of freckles on her arm that has her maybe a bit concerned; and, because Anna is a typical teen, she can’t help but also find herself distracted by her crush on Steve, her trouble-making adolescent brother, and an innate love for physics. But once Anna begins to experience hallucinations and horrible rashes/pain on her freckled-affected arm, she soon learns that maybe she doesn’t know herself as well as she thought.
So, the first thing I thought I’d mention, was the fact that this book wasn’t quite what I’d thought it to be when I’d read the original summary. I had been expecting much more in regards to fantasy, and for the book to touch on Anna’s strange freckles more than just mentioning them a few times throughout. But strangely, I still really enjoyed this book. I found myself actually liking the rhythm, and though it read more like a contemporary, I didn’t mind.
It’s maybe about 75% through when the fantasy aspect finally starts to kick in, and things began to get more interesting. Unfortunately though, the book ends a bit abruptly, and we have to wait for book 2 to see what exactly is going on; but after this first book, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
Overall, this was a pretty well-written book, and I liked that Meghan Riley seemed very well-informed when it came to science, and being that I’ve personally never been good with science, so everything she’s written sounds right to me.
Now, in conclusion, I liked this book and can’t wait to see what the next one has in store for Anna and her new discoveries! Definitely recommend!!
