Ultraviolet is Ultra-amazing!

Ultraviolet by R.J. AndersonIn Ultraviolet author R.J. Anderson tumbles us into the middle of every person’s worst nightmare. Alison comes to herself for the first time in weeks and realizes she’s in a mental hospital. She’s been afraid for a very long time; afraid that she is somehow different from everyone else. And not in a good way. And now she knows it’s true.

My kids have been urging me to read this book for a while now so I sat down with it this morning and didn’t get up until I’d tasted every last word. Anderson’s fresh and vivid style drew me like a roller coaster and by the last dip and curve I just wanted to do it all over again. It’s in my head now and I find myself sifting through words and objects almost catching hints of colour and flavour that I’ve never seen or tasted before. Wow! I can hardly wait to read the next installment in this series. Science fiction at its best.

Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.

Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison’s condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can’t explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori — the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that’s impossible. Right?
