Wow! Just finished Shelli Johannes' Untraceable and had to write this post. Right now.
It's that good. As good as the cover - which I love! :)
Grace is a fabulous character. She's tough. She's smart. And she'll break your heart. She doesn't sit back and let life happen. She grabs it by the ears and tries to shake it into making sense.
All of the characters in the book are so real - even the secondary characters are flesh and blood. Shelli makes them really come to life.
Grace lives in the Smoky Mountains and she loves them. She and her dad spent many happy hours in them, but now he's gone missing and after several months, most people believe that he's gone. Grace wants to prove them wrong.
Grace is so real - touched by grief, pain, hope, love, loss, lust and terror. You'll love the rollercoaster ride of emotions she takes you on.
The action is awesome. At about the 70% mark, the world stopped mattering so much to me. Supper? Fend for yourselves. NaNo? Not tonight. Sleep? I don't think so!
So, do yourself a favour, go grab yourself a copy. And clear out a little time. You won't want to be disturbed!
Shelli will be back here in a couple of weeks for an interview - can't wait to learn more about her!
