What would you do if you discovered an ancient book written about your entire life by a complete stranger?

Growing up in the invisible and sparsely populated village of Livingston, Michigan, Fiona Kent used to despise her life. Every single summer had always turned out to be the same: along with babysitting her younger brothers, Logan and Tommy, the days always turned out to be long, extremely hot, and utterly boring. Just as Fiona was beginning to drown in the tiny sea that she called her world, though, lymphatic lymphoma whisked Tommy away, shoving her parents in a sheer panic and leaving Logan to lose himself in a deep depression. Shocked by her little brother's quick and unexpected passing, Fiona suddenly feels grateful for the tall walls that separate her and her little town from the rest of the world and embraces what little innocence and naivety she has left...

Three years pass and only one photograph of Tommy can be found in Fiona Kent's house. Though their small minded neighbors had eventually stopped gossiping about her brother's death, Fiona was well aware that the rest of her family had made little process. Logan was still caught up in the dark, deathly winds of his depression and her parents acted as if Tommy had never been born at all. All of that changes, though, when Fiona discovers jaw dropping letters written to Tommy by an ancient, nineteenth century prodigy known by the name of Sophia Grant. Determined to prove Sophia's wild and accusatory predictions about her precious, deceased brother wrong, Fiona snaps Logan out of his depression, brings the mysterious book to the attention of her two best friends, and begins the unforgettable journey of a lifetime.

My Review

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. It was something new and completely different than I've read before. Ms. Kent did a wonderful job on her first novel. I wish the book was longer because I wanted to find out what happened! But I guess that's the good thing of having a sequel :) I also wish the book went into a little more detail with everything that was going on, but still really enjoyed it! I also loved the view points going back and forth between Fiona and Kyle. Gave a different perspective of what was going on. Well done!
