When Lightning Strikes by Kathleen Rovner, 3 Cranky Stars


Julie Marin is a talented dancer, and her family has the means to make sure she can live her dream. Her life is close to perfect—until the night she leaves practice late and gets attacked. 

Then her world takes a terrifying turn. With no notice, her family has to pack up and move overnight. And they won’t even tell her why. 

Now everyone around her has secrets—her brother, her parents, and the disturbingly alluring Lucas Black, a new teacher at her school. And there’s definitely something going on in the small town the Marins move to. 

When Julie finds herself drawn to the arrogant but handsome Rory, nothing makes any sense. Is she just paranoid, or is she going crazy? Will these secrets destroy everything Julie has worked for—or destroy her as she fights against them? 

A 300 page young adult fantasy with romantic suspense.


Julie is just a regular teen with extraordinary dancing abilities. 

She has dreams, hopes and wishes but will she ever see them come true? Will she remember?

After two vicious attacks on Julie her family decides to move their family to the Island. Nothing is what it seems and zoning out and missing periods of time becomes the normal.

The storyline is pretty good and one that I haven't read before so definite props for this authors creativity. I did find it hard to follow in spots and found myself questioning more and more by the end. 

I think with a little concentration on the flow of the story and clean up the grammatical errors, this book has the potential to be a 5 star read. 

I look forward to reading book 2 as this one ends in a cliffhanger.
