YA Speculative Fiction
Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Except she harnesses electro-magnetic energy to communicate. Oh, and she's really, really far from home. All she’s been trained to do is blend in, observe, and stay away from Earth’s primitive males. But after she finds one boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she learns the real reason she's supposed to keep her distance: mates from her world can die if separated. Mira's only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment--before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.
Seven years ago, a book about a high school girl who was from far...far...away...was released to the world. Within a few days it became an Amazon best-seller and a top pick in Barnes & Noble stores. Then stuff happened and books two and three never saw the light of day. Eventually Suzanne figured out "stuff" was happening. Weird stuff that she couldn't explain. Then she figured out that the whole ExtraNormal thing was going on around her. In real life. Once she got that figured out, she got back to the books, and is happy to be making a come back with a global launch.
ExtraNormal is ExtraOrdinary. ExtraNormal is a book that I had been waiting to read for a long time now. I finally got to read it and to say that it was awesome would be an understatement. It was infinitely better. I took my time writing this review and talking about things I really, really liked in ExtraNormal...The story of ExtraNormal is very interesting and I loved how it progressed. The pace was perfect and the world building took me on a ride and left me breathless. The concept behind ExtraNormal is extremely innovative and highly interesting to read about. Suze Reese is a genius for creating the world of Mira and Jesse. In other words, I simply loved ExtraNormal.
So surprising: it's WONDERFUL.....and, charming, and insightful, and well written!!
I wasn't sure about this book when I started, but quickly was sucked into the story. Mira and her best friend on another planet were quite likable, and I liked the descriptions of the other planet. I'm hoping there's more books to come with these characters!
This was a really great book, along the lines of The Host by Stephenie Meyer (Yes, THAT Stephenie Meyer). I loved the story line, don't want to spoil it for anyone by revealing any details so I won't! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I really enjoyed this book! Fast moving and light! I laughed and cried! Full of laughs, suspense and romance. Totally wonderful!
We'll send the first 3 chapters, and keep you up-to-date on the global launch.
