With a title like "The Athena Effect" I wasn't totally sure what I was going to get with this book. It ended up being about mystery, adventure and love which I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
The story begins when Cali is taken away from the wilderness where she grew up and moved into the big city. Interwoven with the plot of a young girl trying to find herself, is a story about finding love and a story about psychotic maniacs and the life Cali's parents left. The stories are all told beautifully giving you just enough of each to make you feel satisfied but still leaving you wanting to no more.
I would recommend this book to anyone. It is light enough for younger readers but has enough to keep more mature readers interested.
A very interesting and exciting read! I cannot wait for the sequel!!
