Welcome back! I hope you are having a great 2015! I wanted to share with you my review of Chaos Theory.
Chaos Theory (The Kami Files) by M. Evonne Dobson is a young adult crime novel. Kami is a seventeen year old girl is loves science. She is conducting a “chaos theory” experiment in her locker. Kami tends to be oblivious to other things going on around her, she likes martial arts, and likes to solve problems or find answers. Daniel is the new boy in school. He had been in military school until he was arrested for drugs (according to the school grapevine). Daniel’s sister, Julia, committed suicide with drugs and Daniel claimed the drugs belonged to him. Daniel gets arrested and is turned into a confidential informant in order to get the people who are actually obtaining the drugs. Something does not add up for Kami when she hears this story. As she gets to know Daniel, Kami is determined to find out what happened to Julia. So Kami, Sandy (Kami’s BFF), Sam (Sandy’s boyfriend), Gavin (boy who is interested in Kami) and Daniel start to investigate along with help from the local police (these kids actually ask for help). This book is hard to get into. It is very disjointed at the beginning and jumps from one scene to the next. As you get further into the book, the scenes flow better and it is easier to read. Once I got further into the book, I enjoyed reading it and wanted to find out how things were going to turn out. It is a good mystery, but very easy to solve. I think with a little bit more editing (at the beginning), this could be a very good book and the beginning of a great series. Chaos Theory will be out February 3, 2015.
I received a complimentary copy of this novel from NetGalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you for visiting and reading my review. Have a great week and Happy Reading!
