There was a review (a GREAT one!), there was an exceprt from the opening of Random and a sneak peek at the second book in the series, Wolf. I did a guest blog giving you an insight into the background of these books, and had a fun interview. And 76 of you signed up for the giveaway as I write this.
Thanks to the Author Visits site – and stay tuned – more goodies on “Random” are coming soon on the Internet near you.
About that review: I hope you’ll go to the site and read it all, but here’s an excerpt.
Random is a complex emotional journey of a young girl looking to make sense of a sense-less event that impacts her life and that of her family’s. As she learns the truth behind her sister’s death, she reconciles with Celia’s demise but also finds ways to memorialize her sister by finding purpose and perhaps even conclusion. That is until a double whammy completely changes the course of the story that will undoubtedly be the center of book two.
The quality of the writing is stellar. Well composed and thoughtful, Alexander chooses to give Jazz a mature voice that I appreciated as an adult reader. What I mean by mature has to do with tonality. There is an interesting cast of characters to complement Jazz and Mal’s story and adds dimension to Jazz’s search for answers. The book has no compromising situations or unsavory language.
My rating: a must read. 4 stars. ~ Veena Kashyap
