I get wanting to love this book, but I could t quite do it. I'll say I really liked it. I felt like the characters and their experiences were pretty realistic, but I felt there could've been more time spent developing Ash's character development and her growing realization that she was gay. I'd give this a 3.5.

{My Thoughts} – Jessica turns thirteen and receives a special rose quartz necklace from her moms best friend. Her moms best friend also happens to be the midwife that had assisted in delivering her thirteen years ago. Her mom and Nancy the midwife seemed to have hit it off well and had chose to remain friends. Jessica viewed Nancy more as an Aunt figure then just her mothers best friend.

They is a lot of strange that takes place in this book. It all dates back to when Jessica and two other babies Heather and Tom were all born on the same day. They were also all delivered by Nancy. Apparently Nancy was doing some top secret research and experimentation with colleague of hers and they had stumbled upon an interesting discovery.

The research had started because her colleague had wanted to find a way to cure his pregnant dying wife. He had tested some of their discoveries on his wife, however, the day he had run his last test his wife had died. His son Max however was doing wonderful.

Jessica starts learning that she is able to become invisible when her friend Izzie tells her just as much, when she wakes her up during class. Jessica freaks out but eventually learns to accept it and control it. This book then becomes a trial in error type thing. Jessica starts trying to find others like her, she tries to find more information about what happened to her and she tries to understand what it all means. With the help of Izzie she is able to figure a lot of things out, however it isn’t until she actually talks to Nancy that things become much more clearer.

If you like books that are passed on super human powers, want to learn a laid back interesting mystery or just wont a soft read, this book will probably be right up your alley. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by this author in the future.

Much better than the last few books in terms of plot! I enjoyed the unique take on Atlantis so much that I was able to overlook the occasional cheesy moments (Neptune still being one of them unfortunately). Hopefully the next installments keep getting better!
