Review of the ebook Forte by JD Spero #fortebook

Being the new kid at school is never easy, but having a talent and being so gifted at playing the piano makes the transition attract the attention of a boy named Jason and a girl named Brenna. This has been a gift of Sami's to play the piano so effortlessly and when her mom moves her from New York back to her home town to enhance that talent; Sami begins to quickly learn things aren't always what they seem. In order to fit in with the "cool" crowd Sami feels pressured to try out for the volleyball team. Then she is persuaded to drink some mysterious blue liquid called aquamarine that seems to improve her volleyball skills as well as the other players. She loves the feeling of fitting in and being accepted by the girls on the volleyball team, yet could it be at the expense of Jason and Brenna? What power does coach Payne hold over these girls and can that control be broken? Although she promises her mother she won't try the mysterious blue liquid ... sadly she becomes addicted to it and the side effects are becoming devastating! Will Sami be strong enough to turn her life around and help others who need her? A very interesting story line unfolds....

I really enjoyed this ebook and found I couldn't put it down! It was not what I expected, it was even better with all the twists and turns that occurred throughout each chapter. It was interesting to read how Greek mythology gets interwoven into a story that captures your attention and makes you wonder why and how are these things occurring? What happens is an unexpected thrill in what appears to be a young adult story, but it definitely exceeds beyond that into an enjoyable read for adults as well! There is interesting real life history about a Victorian mansion, called Skene Mansion that I found myself researching after reading the book. Highly recommend putting this book on your summer reading list! You can find it here on Smashwords. :-)
