Review: Some Act of Vision by Lori Ann Stephens

Some Act of Vision
by Lori Ann Stephens

Pages: 291
Format: eARC

Goodreads:  After ten years of ballet lessons, Jordan Walker has finally landed her first principal role in Romeo and Juliet. Sweeter yet, "Romeo" has asked her to the May Fling Ball at Winston High. But a massive Texas earthquake triggered by the fracking activity nearby tears apart the community and Jordan's future as a dancer. The Walker family survives the earthquake, but wake up the next morning utterly invisible. 

On the run from a military with nefarious plans, Jordan and her family are forced to abandon their old lives and flee to Galveston. It isn't until she meets Caleb, a blind musician, that Jordan dares to hope again. And the more their secret friendship develops, the more Jordan understands the danger she's placed everyone in.

Kritters Thoughts:  A little supernatural, a little political, and a lot of family take the center of this book.  With a large mysterious building that pops up in this town in Texas, comes some intrigue as to what is going on behind the closed doors.  After an earthquake, that doesn't seem to come from just nature, this town has an environmental hazard and a father must make a quick decision to save his family.

As the blurb above already spoils that this family ends up invisible, the book really starts there and how they must cope and try to see if they can find a cure.  Jordan, the daughter, ends up in an interesting friendship where her invisibility is a non issue and this relationship is sweet and innocent and I absolutely adored the underlying tone of we have flaws, but it is how you live through it that makes you a strong person.  

With a cliffhanger ending, I am hoping that book two is not far behind.  I also wouldn't mind a prequel that gave more information as to how this town became the center of this scientific lab.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
