For lovers of YA paranormal fiction. Not to reveal too much of the plot--you 'll have to read the book for that--Mia finds that her odd disability, synesthesia, allows her to sense interdimensional portals. Many are interested in her ability--some are nice and more are nasty. What I liked about this book is that it avoids the cliches of the genre. Mia isn't an orphan. She's not a witch, a vampire or a shapeshifter. She's not an alienated loner. She's just a teen with issues that include a missing brother, an alien boyfriend and a homicidal mom. The action moves along nicely, with engaging characters and oddly realistic situations--considering that this is paranormal fiction. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?

Thoroughly enjoyed this new novel by Brinda Berry. The main character, Mia, is on a quest to find her missing brother and finds herself in all sorts of trouble when she discovers a portal to an alternate reality. This is a pacy, multi-layered novel and Mia is just the sort of girl you would want as a friend - feisty, fun and, at the same time, sensitive. The story is told through her eyes and her voice carries you through the twists and turns and suspense. I'm saying no more about the plot as I don't want to give anything away. This is the first in a new series called 'Whispering Woods' and I am looking forward to the next instalment. Aimed at the YA market, this is a winner. Highly recommendedWas this review helpful?
