Let me start off by saying I am not a hug fan of young adult books. Plain and simple. Often times the story line is dry and to whimsical for my taste. Imagine my surprise when Tracy Clark‘s new book graced the inside of my inbox.

Quick Synopsis:

A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.

Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.

As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.

There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her newfound powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.

Scintillate is a fantasy story like no other, and is alone in the fray that is outrageously over crowded. While everyone is trying to make us fall in love with werewolves and vampires, Ms. Clark is making us fall in love with a simple young girl and her simple power. Seeing auras is something new and refreshing and kept me hooked into this story line.

Cora has a character seemed like every tween child out there: confused yet wanting to assert her independence. Although, much of her choices could be seen as questionable, to see her character more fully expanded would be titillating. Of course with every teen book there has to be a hot guy to which the lead character must fall in love with and Finn fits the bill. We aren’t really sure who or what he is until the end of the book but I have to admit it is very shocking.

All in all, this was a great read. From the endearing characters and outstanding writing I just can not wait for the next book.
