Which reality would you choose? Seventeen year-old Emily's dad is in prison for securities fraud and her mom's strung-out on pain meds, leaving Emily to parent herself and her younger brothers and sister. She's got things mostly under control until a couple weeks before Dad's release, when voices start whispering in her head, and Gabe, the hot lifeguard at the pool, notices the strange brands engraved on her arm...the ones she's trying desperately to hide.

If you could sum up Riven in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, heart-wrenching, page turner

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how the author created a story that incorporated both fantasy and realism. The reader is able to see how the heroine evolves and learns things about herself and how she deals with the things she discovers. I found myself wanting to escape into the fantasy world with her.

Which character – as performed by Jane Alvey Harris – was your favorite?

Emily

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
