“Since problems don’t exist in the euphoric world she envisions, my life will never measure up because it will always be problematic.”

Heather Reiner isn’t your typical teenager. With abilities reaching far beyond the norm, she’s just beginning to discover the possibilities.

Growing up different from her peers hasn’t been easy. From being ridiculed by classmates to her mother’s unwillingness to accept anything paranormal, life’s been rather difficult.

At an attempt to escape their past, her mother moves them to another state. Heather soon realizes though, you can’t run from a problem that begins inside yourself.

A guy from her new school, Barry, is captivated the first time he sees her. Determined to know her better, he soon learns her layers of complication run deep. With persistence, he chips away at her shield until each protective layer starts unveiling itself.

Heather wants a chance at an ordinary life, one where her abilities remain hidden. But secrets never stay hidden forever. They have a way of surfacing, revealing themselves when you least expect.  Is normalcy obtainable, or will the mystery about herself be discovered? And if discovered, will Barry be like everyone else and turn away?

A smile crept across my face as I thought about the guy sitting behind me in my physics class. On my second day of attendance, he went out of his way to make sure I had proper notes from the lesson they were currently on. Right before the teacher arrived to start the lecture, I felt a soft tap on my shoulder. A warm, jolting sensation shot down the side of my arm, causing me to whip around. My eyes grew wider as I took in the sight of him. Staring back at me was the most gorgeous guy I had ever seen. His sandy blond hair was disheveled on top, giving it that just-so-sexy look. But it was his eyes that captivated me in that moment. They were warm and inviting, tinted the softest shade of hazel. I sat there for a second with my mouth slightly ajar as I just stared at him. I was caught completely off guard. Nobody had ever captured my attention that way.

Finally blinking, I couldn’t force myself to turn away as the corners of his mouth drew up into a half smirk, obviously aware of my ogling. A warming sensation zinged through my body as the heat crept into my cheeks. I glanced down, embarrassed that he could elicit that type of response. What the heck was I feeling anyway?

He waved a stack of papers back and forth as if he was trying to get my attention. Finally, I snapped out of my trance at the realization he was trying to hand them to me. As I snatched the papers, I barely heard him murmur something about notes from the current lesson before turning back around. It was such a nice gesture, especially since I came part way through the lesson, and I was sincerely touched by his kindness. He certainly didn’t have to do that. But in that particular moment, I wasn’t thinking clearly.

A small chuckle escaped as I remembered my response. Instead of playing it cool, or even pretending to be appreciative, all I said in return was a generic thank-you. Then I turned around and discounted him, as if he wasn’t important. I didn’t even bother with introductions, which I thoroughly regret now, since I still didn’t know his name. Why couldn’t I have come up with a proper “thanks?” I cringed at the thought of him thinking I must be the biggest snob.

I took me a while to get into the story, but once I did, I found it to be a good story.

About Kimberly Readnour

I have always enjoyed reading books, but within the last five years discovered my passion for writing. Ever since childhood, I dreamt of writing a novel, but never took the time to pick up a pen. Oops, showing my age… I mean laptop. When my daughter reached her teenage years, I found my reason to start composing those stories.
I worked for fifteen years as a Registered Nurse before hanging-up my stethoscope. Now, I run my own business while continuing to write during any downtime.
I’m blessed with a wonderful husband and two children. The dynamics in our household changed when my oldest left for college, but I can’t say it was bad. Different, but definitely not bad. When she returns, we enjoy hiking, camping, and simply hanging out as a family. Each stage of life has been amazing, as to which I’m truly grateful.
My debut novel titled Visions was released Dec 15 2014. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
