Product description

Review

Amman's writing is addictive, candid, hilarious, and evocative as she describes the powerful conflict between irresistible attraction and common sense --Renni Acre, author of His Huntress

One of the best - and definitely the worst - thing about this book is it is SO HARD to put down! Sometimes in life, you just can't wait to see what happens... it's the same with Leda. Well written, engaging, some really good insight and tips for life. FANTASTIC! --Susan Byrde, author of Bruce's Fall

I really loved this book. It appears this is going to be a series and I'm anxious to see how it goes. I loved the setting, the time period, and the characters. I felt this was beautifully and truthfully written. The author captures the 90's feel very well. I think that Leda's list for happiness transcends time and is just as applicable now. Leda is a smart, strong character who is learning not to be afraid of being herself. --Autumn Friedli, Librarian

About the Author

Gaia B. Amman was born and raised in Italy. She moved to the United States in her twenties to pursue her Ph.D. in molecular biology. She's currently a professor of biology at D'Youville College in Buffalo, New York, where she was voted the professor of the month by her students. Her research and commentaries have been published in prestigious, international, peer-reviewed journals, including Nature. A bookworm from birth, she wrote throughout her childhood and won two short story competitions in Italy in her teens. Gaia is an avid traveler, and many of her adventures are an inspiration for her fiction. Mostly she is passionate about people and the struggles they face to embrace life. Her highest hope is to reach and help as many as she can through her writing and her teaching. She authored the Indie Author Guide, the LGBTQ sci-fi fantasy Linked Will Empathy Save the United Terrestrial Democracy?, The Italian Saga, a series of four novels that follows Leda s adventures from childhood through the end of high school, and the Sonder Series, of which you just read volume one. The books, light-hearted and funny at first sight, deal with issues like sexuality, divorce, friendship, abuse, first love, and self-discovery. Among Amman s favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Jandy Nelson, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Antoine de Saint Exupèry.

4.0 out of 5 starsI have a love-hate relationship with this book. It started well, the middle bit was endless, and the ending was pretty good.
