Anomaly by Tonya Kuper ARC Review

Anomaly -  Schrodinger’s Consortium #1
by Tonya Kuper

What they say: Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it… 
Worst. Birthday. Ever. 

My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…

Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.

When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…

Coming Nov 25th by entangled Teen!

Author Spotlight:

Tonya Kuper is the author of ANOMALY, the first in the Schrodingers Consortium Series, a young adult science fiction trilogy, releasing November 25, 2014 by Entangled Teen. She fell for Young Adult lit while earning her Master’s degree in Reading Education. She's a mom to two awesome boys, an alt music junkie, a Star Wars nerd, and in love with Sherlock.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I really loved the concept of Anomaly and felt Tonya Kuper did a good job introducing readers to Josie and Reid's world. Imagine being about to create things just by thinking about them, to literally be able to change reality with your mind. Then think of the consequences and potential dangers. As I kid I was obsessed with a cartoon called Penny Crayon about a girl who could create things with her magic crayons so it's no wonder this idea would intrigue me.

As you can probably tell from the blurb, Josie is having a bad day, like a really freaking terrible day but then something happens and everything changes...

For the most part I felt Josie takes the strange events and revelations in her stride, having a hot guy around to assist her probably helped. There were a couple of moments when I was surprised she didn't cause more of a fuss but I appreciated her lack of moaning. 

The tension was good and I liked the action scenes - it's difficult to say more without giving anything away.

I'm not sure about others, but I liked Josie's geekiness and found her endearing. I wanted to know more about Reid and his mysterious past. The story does end on something of a cliffy (don't worry no spoilers here) and I definitely want to know what happens next. 
3.5 Stars in my Sky.
