Smashwords book reviews by Giulia Lorini

    I received a read and review copy from the author. I was positively surprised by this book: it's based on an highly original idea, has an interesting plot and it's well written. It just keeps you reading, you can't put the book down till you've finished it. It's a novella so it's pretty short, but there are quite a few things happening, though it never seems chaotic. The main character is Gemma, a fifteen-year-old girl who's an Averter, she has the ability to see if a person is about to do something that will have a bad impact on his life and she can "convince" him not to do it. It's more than convincing, actually, she can put her thoughts in that person's mind so that he will think that what he was about to do wasn't a good idea after all. He won't remember what she said nor he will remember her, or at least that's what should happen. But when she averts Russ, things don't go quite as they should. Very good book, I recommend it. It leaves you wanting to read more, so now I can't wait for the second book in the series to come out!
