WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS A LIE?
Population: Human … 7 billion. Others … unknown.
When 14-year-old Charlie Blake wakes up sweating and gasping for air in the middle of the night, he knows it is happening again. This time he witnesses a brutal murder. He’s afraid to tell anyone. No one would believe him … because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago – the day before his dad died.
Charlie doesn’t know why this is happening. He would give anything to have an ordinary life. The problem: he doesn’t belong in the world he knows as home.
He belongs with the others.
I found Talisman of El, by Alecia Stone, on NetGalley. Unfortunately I was skeptical because lately I have come across more than one young adult novel that just didn’t cut it. No I am not a young adult but I am young at heart so quite often I enjoy books in this genre. This book, thankfully, has put a major dent in my recent skepticism of new/unknown authors.
