synopsis header
“After surviving an infamous family tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has made it her mission to keep her brother’s search through the cosmos alive. But then something disturbs the frequency on his radio telescope–a pattern registering where no signal should transmit.

In a neighboring county, seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really happened to his brother, who disappeared the day after Nolan had an eerie premonition. There hasn’t been a single lead for two years, until Nolan picks up an odd signal–a pattern coming from his brother’s bedroom.

Drawn together by these strange signals–and their family tragedies–Kennedy and Nolan search for the origin of the mysterious frequency. But the more they uncover, the more they believe that everything’s connected–even their pasts–as it appears the signal is meant for them alone, sharing a message that only they can understand. Is something coming for them? Or is the frequency warning them about something that’s already here?” (Goodreads)

I’ve wanted to read this since seeing it on NetGalley last year. I didn’t get to read it then since I was declined, but I did find a hardcover at my Half Priced Book Store Earlier this year for only $2. I couldn’t beat that price!

The book chapters are split into two point-of-views: Nolan and Kennedy. Each teen is trying to figure out what happened in separate cases that involve their families but somehow they are connected by a date and frequency.

When I first started reading this it was talking about frequency waves and satellites. My mind automatically went to aliens but obviously that wasn’t the case, ha. The plot was nothing I was expecting and that’s usually a good thing, it also was in the case of this book too. I wanted to keep reading and find out what happened next because it easily pulls you in as each plot twist is unraveled.

I had never read a book by this author before but after reading this one I would definitely check out her other books. It’s been a bit since I’ve found a YA Mystery / Thriller that I really enjoyed reading.

Overall, this was the perfect book to take a break from fantasy.

  1. Haha honestly, reading the synopsis has me immediately thinking aliens as well 😂 I’m even more intrigued now since you said it’s obviously not that! This sounds like a thrilling read. Great review!
