How is your summer going? Anything exciting going on? If you are getting the mid-summer duldrums, Struck by Jennifer Bosworth (featured as this week's Tuesday Trailer) could be the book to kick you right out of it.
Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s
survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in
storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.
Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia
feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the
city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The
beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland,
where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night,
the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two
warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their
opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the
freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more
devastating storm that is yet to come.
Lightning addict?! A little too thrilling a hobby for me. I'm assuming none of you do anything that crazy either. But if you want to win this book, tell me about what sorts of thrills you do seek out for excitement. No thrill too small!
