Today has been a crazy day! From a Christmas Bazaar to Kohl's to an outside neighborhood party in the cold, today's been anything but normal. So why not go along with that theme and write about a book that's nothing close to normal? It's Rippler by Cidney Swanson!
Summary: "Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can’t control it, and it’s getting worse. Afraid of becoming a lab-rat, Sam keeps her ability secret, until fellow runner Will Baker sees her vanish into thin air. Will promises secrecy and help, and Sam begins to fall in love.
Together, the two discover there are worse things than being a scientific curiosity. Someone’s been killing people who possess Sam's gene. A mysterious man from France sends letters that offer hope for safety, but also reveal a sinister connection with Nazi experiments.
The more time Sam spends with Will, the less she can imagine life without him. When Sam uncovers secrets from her past, she must choose between keeping Will in her life or keeping Will safe." (Goodreads gets the credit for that.)
While this book can be tedious at times, the plot and happenings are very interesting. Everything written is very visual, so you can definitely have those movie-in-your-head reading sessions. Sometimes, Sam's decisions and who she keeps leaning on gets annoying, but the whole mystery that's being solved, and what it's tied back to is more than captivating! The characters and their back stories are great, and I do think that this novel is one to put on your reading list!
In Conclusion: It's interesting, and I'm more than ready for the sequel to come out!
