Title: Visited ~ Author: Janince Caldwell ~ Genre: YA Coming of Age, Fantasy
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours
Seventeen-year-old Joanna Murphy has lost faith in her life. Vying for her mom’s attention, she’s resentful of her stepdad’s intrusion to their family. Her best friend, Tommy, has no clue she’s in love with him as he dates girl after girl without noticing how it tortures her. The final kicker, though, is God’s sick joke to make her freakishly tall when everyone knows boys prefer petite girls.
Then in a bizarre accident Joanna meets James, a breathtaking teen who appears to her after an unusual falling star sighting. Suddenly, her dream for an alien encounter becomes all too real. But when she finds her life has been made unrecognizable, she’s forced into an explosive study of the original design for her life that just may have her regretting every wish she ever made.
My Review:Be careful what you wish for . . . because you never know what you're going to get. That is exactly what happens to Joanna. And she learns a lot from her mistakes. This book teaches not only the main character, but the reader.
Janine is a fantastic author who has once again, created a story that pulls you right in and keeps you in place, reading until the book is over. Visited is a wonderful story that all teenagers should read!
Visited is a wonderful book and I look forward to Janine's next one! I absolutely loved how the characters grew, how you got to see each side of them, and I absolutely love the way things turned out in the end! <3
Janine lives in Anthem, AZ with her husband and two sons. As a lifelong literature fanatic, she knew it was only a matter of time before she would become obsessed with writing her own work. With relatives like the Brothers Grimm and Anita Loos (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), she figured fantasy writing had to be in her DNA.
Books published by Janine include Visited, a YA coming-of-age fantasy, Rematch and Double Fault—the first two books of The Vortex Series. The final book in this YA fantasy romance, Deuce, will be released fall 2013.
