Goodreads Synopsis:

When 15-year-old twins Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert moved to a new town, they never imagined that the old house across the street could bring them so much trouble. A secret machine has reawakened inside, with the power to pierce time itself.

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.

So happy to be able to help authors! SST is definitely something I plan on sticking to. It helps authors, readers and blogger!
P.S. Like my graphic? I’m trying 🙂

Admittedly, I was kinda nervous leading up to reading this; it was my first time participating in a street team and also because this was in a way required reading. It was something I had to read because I made a commitment. And if you haven’t notice, I’m a mood reader. Which means my overall vibe affects what genre I (or book) I feel like reading and at the time I wasn’t really feeling Sci-Fi.

My Thoughts:

I was so relieved when I started reading this book and found it caught my attention despite not being in a Sci-Fi mood. There were a number of things in here that I found refreshing to see and I think thats what made me want to continue on with the book.Read More »
