Review: First can we just take a moment and enjoy the cover, it is beautiful!
Now on to the details of the book. It's a coming of age story for Isadora who comes to San Diego to live with her brother. She is the daughter of Isis, the Egyptian goddess of motherhood, and growing up in Egypt she never traveled, had not been on a plane, did not know how to ride a bike or drive a car, and Isadora is very opposed to the idea of love. Throughout the book she experiences new places and emotions she didn't even realize she had.
She is required to work on an exhibit at a museum for her mothers art and while there she becomes friends with Tyler, Scott, and Ry. With them she learns to live and be free while learning to appreciate her parents. She learns to take risks and live for what she has now instead of concerning herself with the pain that may come later.
I was excited to read this book because I have read the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan and I loved the Egyptian mythology. Obviously this book is very different but it is wonderful to see how Tyler, Scott, Ry, and Isadora all evolve throughout the book.
When it ended I just wanted more I grew to love all the characters and I didn't want this to be my last time with them, but alas it is a standalone novel (well it is right now). It is a good ending but you just don't want to leave them behind you want to hold onto them.
I would definitely recommend this book!
