This story starts the way many do, with love: My grandmother, Emily, was a black woman living in the small, rural town of Loreauville, Louisiana, who fell in love with the white parish priest in the years before Loving v. Virginia made interracial marriage legal in the United States. Learning this at the age of 30 remade my mother.
Unfurl (Ripple, #3) by Cidney Swanson
She ran from conflicts. A braying laugh. A dramatic forehead. A sense of loss that sits in my chest like a boulder that I have tried to fill with words and alcohol and 3 a. But no matter what I do, the loss of Emily and the effects of that secret remains a void in my person.
We inherit many things from the parents that came before us, but it is the unseen, less quantifiable notions of inheritance that often come to haunt us. The ethical quagmire of this offer is enough to make your head spin. We create legacies with a single touch, in how we consume, in whom we help or hurt.
The would-be vigilante escapes chase, but either way I imagine this moment will come back to bite Angela.
The tension between Laurie and Angela is sharp enough to draw blood. I enjoyed this book, it has left me wanting to read the others in the series. I was happy to read about a teenage girl not obsessed with her looks, weight or clothes.
The story was well paced pun intended! A really good read and even better, free! I could not put this down, every chance I got I was reading, I want to know what happens next so bad so I'll be straight onto chameleon. I need to read what happens next. It took a while to grip me but, when it did I didn't want it to end. I felt like I was watching a series and it was the episode with the cliff hanger. Not really a fan of cliff hangers but; it is a well written book.
So I really only got halfway through the second chapter. As a detailed oriented person this book just didn't do it for me. Samantha struggles to hide her genetic trait for invisibility. When she gets help from her crush Will, the two begin a mad race to outwit the geneticist who murdered Sam's mom, but soon Sam will have to choose what she'll keep safe: Will or her secrets. Suspenseful and romantic, Rippler and its sequels capture the collision of the beautiful with the dark.
Two further sequels form a complete trilogy. Additional book in series for those who fall in love with the Ripple world and want even more!
