The island hides a mysterious secret...

Julie Marin has it all: supportive parents, incredible talent, and the almost-realized dream of becoming a professional dancer. When she's attacked leaving practice one night, her seeming perfection comes crashing down. 

Without notice, her parents pack up the house and move Julie and her brother to a remote island. As she realizes her dreams may not come true after all, Julie starts to expect that everyone around her is hiding a secret. Meanwhile, she finds herself drawn to the disturbingly alluring Lucas and the arrogant but handsome Rory. 

With her thoughts clouded by love and a strange island phenomenon, Julie learns that if she's going to have any chance at the life she wants, she'll need to solve the mystery before it's too late. 

When Lightning Strikes is the first book in a series of suspenseful young adult 
fantasy novels with a touch of romance. If you like captivating stories, strong female characters, and mysterious paranormal twists, then you'll love Kathleen Rover's first book in a compelling series.

Really good. I love how well her expressions are described without overdoing it, and this entire first part is visceral. I'll keep reading for certain.

Thank you for making a story I can relate, except for all the wild paranormal though. (My dream is same, girl!)

I got the feeling that her crush on Mr.Black is  more than teen infatuation. Also, I love her nickname: Ghouls

Nice to see Mr. Black's  entrance! Interesting to see the similarity between he and Jamie's presence.
