New Release Sunday #6

The book released this week that I am most looking forward to checking out is Flutter by Gina Linko. This novel has 352 pages in the hardback edition, and is published by Random House Books for Young Readers.
Basically this book is a sci fi adventure about a 17 year old girl who sufferes seizures, and during her seizures she travels through worm holes back in time. There is also the suggestion of some romance, and a mystery to unravel.
This sounds like a really unique and interesting idea for a novel, and anything involving time travel is good with me.
Blurb:  "All Emery Land wants is to be like any other 17-year-old—to go to school, hang out with her friends, and just be normal. But for as long as she can remember, she’s suffered from seizures. And in recent years they’ve consumed her life. To Emery they’re much more than seizures, she calls them loops—moments when she travels through wormholes back and forth in time and to a mysterious town. The loops are taking their toll on her physically. So she practically lives in the hospital where her scientist father and an ever-growing team of doctors monitor her every move. They’re extremely interested in the data they collect when Emery seizes. It appears that she’s tapping into parts of the brain typically left untouched by normal human beings.

Escaping from the hospital, Emery travels to Esperanza, the town from her loops on the upper peninsula of Michigan, where she meets Asher Clarke. Ash’s life is governed by his single-minded pursuit of performing good Samaritan acts to atone for the death of a loved one. His journey is very much entwined with Emery’s loops.

Drawn together they must unravel their complicated connection before it’s too late."-Goodreads
