The Moon in Habock's Mirror + Giveaway
Review by Nancy
What if you were almost 16 and your life sucked? I’ll bet millions of “almost 16”ers could answer that one! However, your life probably doesn’t suck quite like Scarlett Cavanaugh’s. Yes, she climbs up the trellis to get in late at night and yes, she has talked her twin sister, Gwen, into covering for her. Typical? Yep. However, does your Siamese cat talk to you? I mean really speak. Though not!
Habock (aka Adonis the Siamese) has a mission and it’s over two years old. His job is to take Scarlett forward in time to see what has happened to herself and her family and it isn’t pretty. Scarlett has gone Goth and is a mean, spiteful girl child. She treats Gwen horribly and has been grounded to the house for various indiscretions. She can’t even speak to her boyfriend, Sparks, who isn’t deemed worthy of her.
Habock explains that this isn’t all quite correct but Scarlett has to stop a timeline crisis from happening and restore things to their old pattern. Scarlett must put aside what she learned as a child and become a young warrior, brave enough to talk to the moon (Avari by name) and secure knowledge to help.
A mid-teen life crisis story written well with characters any teen can relate to. I wish my cats had been able to talk (although not to my parents!). Pick it up and go lay out in the front lawn and read this one!
