Not only have I been under deadline, but I was at the beach for Spring Break all last week and just catching up.
I know most of you know Alyson Noel, especially her Evermore series. But she just started a new MG series with a spin off on Riley's character that is awesome.
Radiance came out last year and it was adorable. Well the sequel Shimmer just came out and hit the bestseller list.
I met Alyson Noel last year and she is just as
sweet as this series. IN Shimmer - Alyson has packed a lot of stuff into it - slavery, death, humor. The story of Rebecca and the slaves on Virgin Islands during the turn of the century is heartbreaking. In this book, Riley is forced to mature when faced with serious issues and anger.
Having solved the matter of the Radiant Boy, Riley, Buttercup, and Bodhi are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. When Riley comes across a young ghost named Rebecca, Riley soon learns Rebecca's not at all what she sees. The daughter of a former plantation owner, she is furious about being murdered during a slave revolt in 1733. Mired in her own anger, Rebecca is keeping the ghosts who died along with her trapped in their worst memories. Can Riley help Rebecca without losing herself to her own nightmarish memories?
