Reviewing Your Universe

Gift by Andrea J. Buchanan
ARC approved by NetGalley
Rating:  3 Stars

High school is difficult enough on the everyday kid. Throw in reincarnated souls, unfinished business and the ability to wield electricity and you’ve got one heck of a story line.

Daisy’s character is the right combination of strength of character, engaging personality and vulnerability. She faces difficult choices, and finds support from a group of friends she wasn’t looking to find.

The secondary characters help the story shine—mostly. Vivi is strange and fragile and engenders sympathy. Kevin is the perfect boyfriend. He’s got his own issues, but is willing to keep an open mind and help Daisy any way he can. I didn’t connect with Danielle, the best friend. She seemed selfish and shallow and very unaccepting when it came to her best friend.

Though the pace was a bit slow, I enjoyed reading Gift. And anybody that likes a little romance and mystery with their paranormal will too!
