About the Author
Hey, Thank you for stopping by, you're looking mighty spiffy today. Oh, this is supposed to be about me, I suppose. Well, my interest in writing first piqued during elementary school. My first published piece was a poem that I wrote in eighth grade. In high school, I had two English teachers whose passion for literature inspired me to pursue English Literature at the University level. While there, I met other creative writers, and the spark was set into flame. I am new to the e-book scene, but I sincerely hope that you enjoy my work. I love writing novelettes. I find the length to be quite enticing without being overwhelming. My favorite genres are paranormal romance and young adult. Check out my facebook page for updates as to when I will be releasing sequels and new titles. A. C.

This is a very fast-paced novella that sometimes skips ahead with little or no warning. Ellie is a seventeen year old, with a crush on her best friend's brother. One morning, as she is heading towards the library, she meets a young child who has a massive impact upon her life. I won't say any more about the story as I don't want to give anything away. There are a couple of things that stuck out for me in this read. The first thing is that there are NO conversations in this book... at all. It is all he said, she said. Told all from Ellie's point of view, it does make sense, but it was very strange to realise that no one actually 'spoke'. The other thing is Ellie meets the child, story moves on, the reader accepts what she has been told. However, she then goes to her grandma's cabin to find a letter from her that puts a whole new light on the situation. This was never clearly explained though. Does it skip every other generation? Was Ellie's change a foregone conclusion (obviously it would appear)? The basic storyline is a good one, however for me, I would have preferred some conversations in there and for things to have been explained a bit better. Still a good start though. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
