Review: Unfolding by Jonathan Friesen

Book Description ( provided via booklook bloggers )  

Jonah wishes he could get the girl, but he’s an outcast and she’s the most perfect girl he knows. And their futures seemed destined to fork apart: Jonah’s physical condition is debilitating, and epileptic seizures fill his life with frustration. Whereas Stormi is seemingly carefree, and navigates life by sensing things before they happen. And her most recent premonition is urging her to leave town.
When Stormi begs Jonah for help, he finds himself swept into a dark mystery his small town has been keeping for years. And the answers Stormi needs about her own past could possibly destroy everything Jonah has ever known—including his growing relationship with Stormi herself.

My Review:

Unfolding was very fascinating. Strange... but still very fascinating. It definitely kept me captivated and held my attention throughout the entire book. Although I did like the story, I feel like sometimes it was just a bit too out there and left too many things just flapping around in the wind without resolution or reason. With that said I did feel like this book had interesting characters that sometimes really carried the story when bits of plot where missing and the story may have otherwise fell flat. The fact that the main character had a physical disability was something different and unique that really set it apart from other fiction books that I have read. The descriptive writing was absolutely one of my favorite things about the story and at times was very poetic and moving. Overall it was a pretty decent read and should appeal to someone craving something different to read.
