Seventeen-year-old Lisa’s life is quickly coming apart in folds: after her mother and father divorce, their house is foreclosed on, and her mother checks herself into a psychiatric hospital, which forces Lisa to relocate to a boarding school in Massachusetts, where she’s housed in a tiny shack with two of the strangest teenagers ever to walk the face of the earth. To top it all off – as if things couldn’t get any worse – she soon learns that her problems are only just beginning when she’s suddenly struck by lightning...

Based on all the aforementioned facts, you’d think that CIN was just another depressing tale of melodramatic teen angst; instead, the debut installment in author Christina Pritchard’s intriguing new series takes quite a different approach to the typical challenges of contemporary young adulthood. In innovative fashion, Pritchard uses the effective combination of multi-dimensional characters and subtle subplots to expound on the universal theme of “adolescence-as-a-backdrop-to-learning-the-truth-about-one’s-real-self.” In Lisa, Pritchard has crafted quite the sympathetic protagonist, to which teens will easily relate: chronicling both her internal and external struggles with a genuine sense of the familiar, thereby inviting young readers to explore the depths of their own conflicted feelings. In so doing, they will find it easy to identify with the challenging – yet ultimately rewarding – journey she must take on the road to self-acceptance.

A tough, yet rewarding read, CIN is strongly recommended for teenagers seeking to make sense of a world where logic and reason often seem like foreign, unattainable concepts.
