Contact by Laurisa White Reyes

July 16, 2014 Reviews 0

Contact by Laurisa White Reyes is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl who after her sixteenth birthday develops a rather unusual gift…..erhm….curse.

She believes it’s a curse until her mother falls into a coma and Mira believes that the cause is more than her mother’s diabetes. So this book fell flat for me. Don’t get me wrong! The characters, the plot, even the tiniest bit of suspense were good, but just not for me. Let me start with the characters. Mira Ortiz is… Read more »
