Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Oh My God. What an amazing book. Emerson is a 17 year old girl who just wants to be a normal girl. She has lost both of her parents and lives with her brother Thomas and his wife Dru. But it is hard to be a normal girl when you see ghosts, but it turns out they are a little more complicated than just being ghosts. Michael was brought to Ivy Spring to help Emerson with her problem. AKA Ripples. He is sympathetic, cute and just a little older than her. They have this strange kinda of connection to each other. And soon learn they have a lot in common. But he is really complicated, he makes her think he likes her and then he pushes her away. Ugh. He needs her help to prevent a murder, but it is in the past. They work together with the help of the others at the Hourglass. A place where people who have “abilities” go for help. The ending was such a twist I didn’t see it coming. This was beautifully written, and the story of Emerson and Michael’s romance was amazing. Its had mystery, romance, paranormalcy and time travel all wrapped up together. Who could ask for anything more.
