Strange Girl by Christopher Pike: Review + Giveaway

Strange Girl 
by Christopher Pike

Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
Paperback: 432 pages

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike comes a brand-new fascinating and seductive new novel about a girl with a mysterious ability—but one that carries an unimaginable cost.

From the moment Fred meets Aja, he knows she’s different. She’s pretty, soft-spoken, shy—yet seems to radiate an unusual peace. Fred quickly finds himself falling in love with her.

Then strange things begin to happen around Aja. A riot breaks out that Aja is able to stop by merely speaking a few words. A friend of Fred’s suffers a serious head injury and has a miraculous recovery.

Yet Aja swears she has done nothing.

Unfortunately, Fred is not the only one who notices Aja’s unique gifts. As more and more people begin to question who Aja is and what she can do, she’s soon in grave danger. Because none of them truly understands the source of Aja’s precious abilities—or their devastating cost.

Love Aja or hate her—you will never forget her.

In Strange Girl, #1 bestselling author Christopher Pike has created the rarest of novels—a love story that swings between a heart-pounding mystery and a stirring mystical journey.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved having this book written from a male point of view. Fred was a very likable lead. He was your typical teenage boy. There wasn't anything special about him, which is what made him so great. Fred met Aja, and she changed his life forever. Not in any dramatic, over the top way...but slowly and subtly. She gave him something to believe it, and he loved her for that, or maybe in spite of that. Aja was quite interesting in her own way. Innocent to the point of fault, she touched everyone she met in some way.

This book told the story of Fred and Aja, but in it you also see the beauty and cruelty of human nature. Humans are selfish race, but once in a while you will find something worth living for.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
