I was recently contacted by Jessica (Twitter here) and asked if I would like to read her new book called 'Gifted' and review it and I jumped at the chance and let me say. I am so glad I did.

'There is no chosen one in this story. Avery Gray was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and happened to make a decision that alternated her future forever. It happens to all of us everyday.

Avery is a size twelve university student with a penchant for dry humour and she's as normal as they come. One rainy afternoon, Avery had to make a choice: go through the alleyway or around it. Two possible options. One would have had her future continue on as planned, the other would ensure that her future never remained the same again. She unknowingly went with the latter.

Change can be good. It can bring new opportunities, new friends and a life you never thought possible. Change can be bad. It can bring you people determined to burn your city to the ground.

It all depends on the decision you make.'

My Thoughts:
I devoured this book the moment I opened it. I found the story engaging and fun to read. I found the world building to be so great that I could picture the different cities in my mind which made it more exciting. I thought all the characters brought something to the table and none were left behind. 

I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen next and I loved the humour that was shown in the book. I loved the ending which has just left me wanting so much more that I can't wait for the second book to come out. 

One negative I did however have was that the timeline was jumpy and when I thought only a few days had passed, one of the characters would say something about it and it turned out months had gone by and even a year at one point which was slightly strange and it made the timeline more jumpy. 

However I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would give it a good 4 out of 5 stars and I can't wait to see what will happen in the next upcoming book.
