~ Synopsis ~
The sequel to STIM…an Aspie new adult contemporary novel set in an earthquake zone.
Chloe is different. She has Asperger’s Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder and probably a few other inconvenient conditions as well. She’s a quirky, resourceful and clever psychology student, but her world is literally about to be shaken apart. A devastating earthquake sparks a chain of events that spiral her life out of control. She’s off her meds. Her oddly-named cat is missing. She doesn’t know what she wants out of life any more. Misfortune and uncertainty don’t mix well with bundles of energy and Chloe’s tendency to ignore consequences. It’s as if mayhem and trouble are her constant companions.
Will Chloe be able to cope with the earth-shaking events that rock her world?
~ Review by Laura ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Chloe has Asperger’s Syndrome and Bi Polar just to name a few that many doctor have diagnosed her with. She is quirky but likes to be organized or else it would throw her off the structured world she has made for herself. Chloe has her own routine and must follow it to function in the normal world. Her dad is hardly around but makes up for it by giving Chloe money. An earthquake happens and her house is destroyed along with her medication. The medication is what helps her function and without having it she retreats back into her dark hole with no hope. This is Chloe’s journey in how she deals with the aftermath of an earthquake and also other events going on in her life.
This book was very different from anything I have ever read. I read the first book called Stim and already knew of Chloe’s character. I love the fact she had Asperger’s Syndrome and how the author gave you such insight into her thoughts. It is a unique story and I love Chloe’s character. I highly recommend this book! It’s an enjoyable read and gives you insight into a person with Asperger’s Syndrome. I give this 5 books.
