Book Review: Earthbound by Aprilynn Pike
Earthbound is a modern day story of a girl named Tavia, who happens to be the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed everyone, including her parents except for her. Luckily her aunt and uncle come to claim her and offer her a chance to come and live with them. She quickly agree's, and almost a year passes with nothing more than getting past the trama, nightmares and lots and lots of therapy.
That is until one day she realizes she is starting to have visions of a boy she's never met or spoken to. Little by little things start happening to her, that has her questioning everything.
When Tavia starts looking for answers, she uncovers more than she could have ever imagined. Before she knows it, her life has been turned upside down again and her aunt and uncle are looking more and more like suspects who are responsible for the plane crash.
Feeling as though the only person she can trust is her best friend Bensen, she takes off on a mission of self discovery and at the same time follows her visions to see where they might lead her.
Earthbound is action packed and is filled with lots and lots of twists and turns. So many that I don't even want to mention any of them because I would hate to ruin this wonderful story for anyone. But let me just say, you will like!
I see a lot of similarities with the Wings series, even though the storylines are completely opposite. Aprilynn is a true romantic, and I love that right from the beginning you know your going to get lots and lots of that. I also love a great love triangle, and Earthbound definitely has plenty of that too!
This is a well written, fast paced YA that if you are like me will devour in just a couple of sittings! If your a fan of her Wings series, you will absolutely love Earthbound!
About the only thing I didn't like is, now I have to wait until next summer to find out what happens next.
This is a YA book, however the main character is 18 and all the others are older. I recommend this book to any age who enjoys a great read!
