Flutter: A scary twist through time


 
Nearly fifty million people worldwide have epilepsy, a neurological disorder that causes seizures, and so does Emery Land. But instead of just experiencing seizures, Emery has what she calls loops—moments when she travels through time. Her only problem: nobody believes her.

 

Emery is stuck in the hospital while her Dad and a team of doctors study her as her seizures become worse. But Emery is noticing something else too, she used to feel completely Zen in her loops, and now they’ve become kinda scary.

 

Deciding she no longer wants to spend her life as a “lab rat,” Emery decides to travel to Esperanza, a town she visits in some of her loops and where she meets Asher Clarke. Ash has dedicated his life to helping others because of his dark past, but Emery can’t help but feel like they’re connected. Trying to stay away from her father, Emery must try to understand her connection with Ash and her loops.

 

Flutter by Gina Linko is both a science fiction and romance novel that gets you thinking from the very beginning. Linko beautifully flips between Emery’s loops and real life, helping you piece together connections between her and Ash. But, wait. You still won’t believe the ending.

 

Be sure to grab a copy of Flutter (in stores Oct. 23). Then come back and share your thoughts.
