Meanwhile, lightning storms are breaking out all over town. They’re getting worse every week, and seem to enjoy striking kids who just want to pass science class and mind their own business. When Malcolm and Valentine discover a connection between the house and the storms, their situation goes from mysterious to crazy stupid dangerous. Someone is controlling the great machine, and their purpose is nearly complete.
In a race against time, the twins must uncover the chilling plan, the mastermind behind it, and the force that’s driving the deadly storms. They’ll hunt a powerful enemy that threatens their town’s existence, and the only clues are written in the sky.
** from Goodreads
It’s been quite some time since I agreed to read something out of my typical realm of fiction. Yet, when I read he synopsis above for The Year of Lightning I was intrigued. But I wasn’t ready to pick up the book and be enthralled.
Every page of The Year of Lightning is non-stop adventure that’s, oddly enough, completely believable. When I read that this is a “YA Time-travel adventure” I thought maybe it would be ok but really it’s not like that, it’s completely amazing. And it’s funny. Snarky and teenage romantic.
This is the first book I’ve plopped down in front of my son and says must read…. and he didn’t put it down.
When can we have another?
