"Twinge" by Leora Krygier


This book is pretty simple. An adopted girl deciding college plans meets a guy in a coffee shop. Pretty ordinary; right? Wrong. Nikki is as messed up as the colleges she makes. With coming of age and questions of identity, her life is spilled upside down when a mysterious guy she dubs The Reader gives her a printout of places to go each day. Taking a risk, she goes there and meets up with him each day. Both awkward in their own way, they cherish each other's company. Readers almost fall off the edges of their seats when they realize why The Reader wants to go to a different store each day. Cultural and friendship issues are briefly gone over, too. As inevitable as the romance is, it is not graphic; still, this book is not suitable for young readers. There are a few swears, and the Lord's name is also taken in vain. The book is riddled with grammatical syntax errors that will hopefully be addressed before publication. At the end of the book, there is not any huge climactic twist. The book just ends with a simple decision. Not many authors can get away with something like that. Readers know the feeling. You finish a book and realize that not much happened, yet you realize you never stopped turning the pages.
