An Exceptional and Engaging Book ~ Snow Globe by Jeanne Skartsiaris

Troubled teen. Juvenile delinquent. Aja Harmon is familiar with the labels. She and her mom live like gypsies, moving every year. Her mom works as a psychic and Aja fights to suppress her own intuitive abilities because the power scares her. 

After losing a cool job at Abercrombie & Fitch, the only work Aja can find is as a waitress at an elderly residence home. Slowly she begins to enjoy working with the seniors. Unlikely bonds forge, making their worlds bigger while shrinking the generation gap. 

If only a corrupt police officer hadn't set his sights on Aja—a beautiful girl with a sketchy past. An easy target to add to his twisted collection. Snow Globe is a story about a teen who tries to do the right thing but continues to find trouble with her smart mouth and fearless attitude. Working at the assisted living facility, Aja learns compassion and how important yet fragile life is.

The beauty and mystique of Snow Globe's cover grabbed my attention and wouldn't let go so I decided to read it.  I wasn't sure if this book was a good fit for me but I was taken by surprise and found I really enjoyed it! 

I found Snow Globe to be at times humorous, sad, loving, engaging and the thriller/suspense part had me on "the edge of my seat". All in all, a very good story! 

Snow Globe reminded me that it's best "not to judge a book by it's cover" and that people are not always who and what they seem to be. 

If you're into reading the author's notes as the end of the book, I highly recommend it. She has an interesting story of how she came up with the ideal of this book! 

4 Stars!
