      enjoyable YA fiction

      Since getting my kindle I have exposed myself to all sorts of books and literature that I would not normally pick up in a shop because of the great free section on amazon! I may not have picked this book up in Waterstones because the cover makes it look very boring, and doesn't reflect the subject matter at all. The black implies that it will be very dark but this is in fact not the case, it is a fairly light young adult supernatural read which is really enjoyable and quite unique, it has been described as The Time Traveller's Wife meets Twilight.

      The words come find me two years ago changed Arizona Steven's life totally. Two stories are intertwined in the novel in past and present, while Arizona is discovering what is happening, her mother is explaining why it is happening. Arizona Stevens was catapulted into an alternate dimension where she is totally different and has no clue why, gone is the ice hockey and it appears that she is a cheerleader, with a brother! It appears that she's been in this life for a while but she can only remember the other dimension and will struggle to find the answers to all the questions that she now has.

      I really enjoyed this novel, I found it really engaging. I love supernatural books these days, and this one just seemed to have a new take on things since it took a fairly realistic world, bringing science into it rather than being so focused on creatures and vampires! It is one that takes a bit of thinking and provokes a lot of questions, which will hopefully be answered in the sequel which I'm planning to buy immediately which is the beauty of the kindle, I can't wait to start reading and discover what happens next, but there isn't particularly a cliff-hanger so you could just leave it at that if you didn't want to spend any money. The characters were created really well, I liked the stark contrast between the two Arizona's and how much the different life changed her.
