Book Promo: Swimming to Tokyo

Some of you may know that I love swimming/water and the Asian culture (since I'm asian and all) so I thought this would be an interesting book to share! Check out that cover. It's hott, isn't it? ^_~

About SWIMMING TO TOKYO:

Releases July 29, 2014 from Spencer Hill Contemporary 

The rules for swimming are simple:
Rule #1: There is no lifeguard on duty.
Since her mom died three years ago, nineteen-year-old Zosia Easton’s been treading water. Living at home. Community college. Same old Saturday nights. So when her father breaks the news he’s taken a job transfer—and by the way, it means renting out the house that’s been her refuge—a summer in Tokyo feels like it just might be a chance to start swimming again.
Rule #2: Beware of unexpected currents.
Finn O’Leary has spent God knows how many years trying to drown out his past. Juvenile detention. Bad decisions. Worse choices. He’s managed to turn it around – MIT, Dean’s List, a sexier-than-thou body with a smile to match – at least on the surface. When his mom asks him to spend the summer with her, Tokyo seems as good a place as any to float through the summer.
Rule #3: Swim at your own risk.

Book Review: Pulled (A Flawed Short Story)


Eight-year-old Juniper has been labeled many things—troubled kid, orphan, runaway—but none of her foster families have known what she really is: a girl with a unique and brutally inconvenient ability to teleport.

Her spontaneous jumps are not only beyond her control, they get her into trouble. When Juniper disappears, no one believes her wild stories, so she's stopped trying to convince them.

One day when Juniper gets pulled away, finding her way back is harder than ever. Stranded on the side of a deserted highway, she must rely on her own instincts to determine who is a creepy stranger and who she can trust.
Resourcefulness may get her home, but is getting home enough when you don't have parents that love you?

Juniper knows something most people don’t: there are others like her with unexplained abilities. Until now, she’s exercised stranger-danger caution, but maybe these people can offer what she needs.

Will Juniper find a family she can share her secrets with?

Pulled is a standalone story set in the same world as Empath. Juniper is able to teleport but she is unable to control it. The author makes the abilities appear as a flaw but I'm glad to see that someone in the story sees these abilities as special and unique. As someone who would love to have a special ability I didn't love being told that it was a flaw but I am glad to see that not everyone in the story believes that.
