Review: Flutter – Gina Linko

All Emery Land wants is to be like any other 17-year-old—to go to school, hang out with her friends, and just be normal. But for as long as she can remember, she’s suffered from seizures. And in recent years they’ve consumed her life. To Emery they’re much more than seizures, she calls them loops—moments when she travels through wormholes back and forth in time and to a mysterious town. The loops are taking their toll on her physically. So she practically lives in the hospital where her scientist father and an ever-growing team of doctors monitor her every move. They’re extremely interested in the data they collect when Emery seizes. It appears that she’s tapping into parts of the brain typically left untouched by normal human beings.

Escaping from the hospital, Emery travels to Esperanza, the town from her loops on the upper peninsula of Michigan, where she meets Asher Clarke. Ash’s life is governed by his single-minded pursuit of performing good Samaritan acts to atone for the death of a loved one. His journey is very much entwined with Emery’s loops. 

Drawn together they must unravel their complicated connection before it’s too late.
My thoughts:
This book was light and easy to read, and one thing kept me reading and reading. What on earth is going on in this book?
Emery is not your average girl. She suffers from seizures and have to sleep in the hospital. And these seizures are killing her. While in them she sees things and comes to the conclusion that she is time-travelling. And this was the thing that pushed me forward. Is she really? How will she stop it from killing her? The mystery around her and her disease was good.
She travels to another town and meets Ash. He has secrets of his own, slowly I learn more and feel that their story is as doomed as they come.
The book is such a mystery. Time-travel, a strange disease, a mystery little boy that tells her to go to this town…making it into a good book that I had a hard time putting down.
And the end, wow, the end..that is all I am saying. I did not see it coming.
Conclusion
A twist, a turn, and there you have this book.

    I do not like the cover but I loved that ending. Even though I didn't feel much for the characters and I was a little confused about where it all was heading but it was a solid surprise (to me) ending.

    Horror nope (but it sure looks like it!)Paranormal, well I have to classify it as that but in the end, the only weird things is her seizures. Hard to put it in a genre
