used on the title is what first drew my attention to this book, as well as the
is retreating to her mums holiday hideaway where her brother Ben stays. On the way she fills up for petrol and
stumbles across a mysterious, drop dead gorgeous guy – who happens to be around
the same age as her brother. Hannah’s personality
had me in stitches as she came across as a bumbling teenager when she first
meets him and then analyses every thing she says and did, so funny! It isn’t until Ben brings his childhood friend,
Josh round, that she realises it was Josh she met at the petrol station.
isn’t all he says he is – and sometimes its frustrating to read as he tries to
distance himself from Hannah for an unknown reason, which we find out as the
work out a few things before Hannah did, such as the true friendship between
Ben and Josh. The tension and thrill of
the storyline and the unknown threat to Hannah kept the story a page turner, as
Hannah (and us) are left in the dark for a while until Josh slowly starts to
share his story with her, and Hannah realises the implications of her
nightmares and dreams.
think this is a fairly well thought out book.
The only thing I wasn’t too keen on was how easy it was to defeat their
common enemy after all the history that had gone before, it just seemed a bit
too convenient for me.
adored the backdrop for this and the heritage and history that went into making
the storyline, which felt authentic. I can’t help but wonder
who would play these characters if it made it to film – I see it as a cross
between Dancing with Wolves and The Time Travellers Wife.
All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after
her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben
for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There,
she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The
little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling
more for him than just friendship.
But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and
quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the
past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come
closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?
Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.
