Review: Have you ever read a book about some thing very unusual but is fun to read? The story Flutter by Gina Linko is exactly like that. The book Flutter is about a girl with a special ability to mentally and physically travel to another dimension. Along the way she meets a guy named Ash and falls in love with him. I personally like reading about science fiction so I really enjoyed Flutter. It starts off a little slow in the beginning, not a lot happening, but then it picks up towards the middle of the story causing you to not want to put the book down.
The main character in this story is Emery Land who is an 18 year-old girl that experiences what they call, "loops" or seizures where she travels to another dimension. Her father who is a scientist is always trying to figure out why she is having these loops. Emery gets sick of it and wants to live life like every body else. Because of this, she escapes to the town of Esperanza where she meets some interesting people. She meets one boy named Asher Clarke who known a secret that has gone on for years that helps Emery figure out why she is having her loops.
Over all, Flutter is a very good book that gives a lot of suspense towards the end. Flutter has a very high vocabulary and strong language, which means it is most appropriate for readers age 13 and older because of the dialogue. I give Flutter a four out of five stars because it is very entertaining to read but the language was unnecessary and kind of made me uncomfortable. It gives so much detail about Emery's life that it feels like you are there with her experiencing every moment of it. All in all, if you are looking for a good book, check out Flutter.
