Tempest

Tempest
by
Holly Hook



Description:
Sixteen-year-old Janelle never thought the gray spiral birthmark on her arm meant anything special.  That is, until she meets Gary, a boy her age with a birthmark exactly like hers.  Gary’s attractive, brooding, and perfectly normal…except for the fact that he materialized out of a dangerous hurricane right in front of her.  Janelle’s certain of only one thing.  Gary’s mark—and hers, too—mean something, but he’s reluctant to tell her what. 
 
At last she squeezes the truth from Gary about their markings.  And the truth is utterly terrifying: Janelle and Gary are more connected to the destructive power of nature than she ever dreamed possible.  And learning the truth about herself is only the start of her nightmare.  
 
 
Reviews:
"I really enjoyed this book. I cold not put it down. I liked the theory about the Tempest. I hope to hear more from this author. I would reccomend this book to Young adult and adult readers.

First we have Janelle who you can't help but root for. She moves to Florida and all of a sudden she is very strong and strange things are happening to her when she touches ocean water. She has a birth right that her mother expects her to follow through with but she does not want to. When she moves to Flordia it happens to be during Hurricane Gary.

Then we meet Gary who lives with his Guardian. He is sixteen. And happens to come out of the eye of the Hurricane. He ends up in a hospital and on the run from his guardian. Where he seems to run into Janelle alot.

This story has love, action, adventure. Alittle bit of everything. I could not get the story out of my mind when I was not reading it. I hope to see a sequel in the future."
 
 **********
"Tempest by Holly Hook is a suspensful tale of a young girls journey of self-exploration and identity brought on by a secret that has been withheld from her all her life. Everything she thought she knew was a lie and it has left her questioning who she really is and just what she is really capable of.

Janelle Duvall has lived a somewhat normal life in Flint, Michigan. When economic times go bad, her father moves her to Florida where they settle in just as Hurricane Gary makes its way through. Janelle has noticed that her father has been behaving strangely in the week they've been in Florida, for instance, as the wind and rain howled outside their house during the hurricane, Janelle begged to go to the shelter but her father remained strangely calm, happy even. It wasn't until the police forced them to go to the local high school shelter that he gave in and went.

It's there were she meets Gary, a boy who seems to literally appear out of a water vortex in the parking lot. The strange thing is he has the same birthmark that Janelle has. Not just similar, but identical! The birthmark, oddly enough looks like a swirling hurricane. It's this meeting that sets Janelle on her journey to find out who she really is and just why her father is acting so whacked out! A journey that is rich with nail biting action, suspense and edge of your seat anticipation. The ending is incredibly satisfying yet leaves room for a possible sequel.

You'll have to read the book to find out more and I guarantee you will be enthralled. Janelle and the supporting characters are believable and real. The story itself is fascinating and brings a new element to the young adult paranormal genre."
