My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Delightful and winning! Engrossing, riveting-the very definition of a page-turner! YA, yes, but suitable for older readers too. The authors do a marvelous job of introducing an autistic child character and making him a full-on protagonist. I want to give this book 16 stars, as I was so totally absorbed, and can’t put it out of my mind. Over the months, I’ve read a few YA books that had this strong an effect on me: “The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer,” “Divergent,” the “13 to Life” series, “The Girl in the Clockwork Collar;” and now “Amber House” takes its place in that exalted pantheon. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
Gently budding romance; a dilemma between two possible romantic interests; Supernatural; time travel; precognition; the rock and the hard place of being a maturing adolescent vs. the issues of the parent; potential divorce; an autistic but very much beloved younger sibling; learning to trust vs. learning to discern-this wonderful, precious, story has it all-and I certainly hope for more novels in the future!
