–Does your sister let you touch her, Gemini?
-Barely, but, yes, more than anyone else. I remember even in preschool when the teacher would grab her hand, she’d stare at the spot where their skin connected as if it were an affront to her existence. Just stand there and glare like she wanted to hurt someone.
–Junipera suffers from a rare phobia.
-Please, what does June not suffer from?
–When did she start chasing storms?
-In third grade she started obsessing about the rain. Full blown? I’d say after hurricane Katrina she never looked back. And she didn’t just chase them, June became those wild storms.
Junipera and Gemini Jones, Irish twins born during the month of June, survive a childhood of neglect and poverty by looking out for one another. Destined for a group home, the girls are rescued by a rich aunt and uncle who move them from Northern Minnesota to Fairfield, Connecticut. One sister thrives while the other spins out of control. A violent assault leaves Gemini searching for clues, but what she finds might be questions that are better left unanswered.
Touched by Mara White is completely unlike anything that I have ever read before. I still can’t believe that I only recently discovered this extraordinarily talented author a few short months ago. Her writing is not only emotionally captivating, but it’s got this poetic feel to it that captures a readers heart and hangs on for dear life from start to finish. My heart is still reeling hours after finishing and all I can think about is how I am supposed to write a review that reflects the author’s undeniable talent?! This story was hands down addictive and I promise that readers will be taken on an unforgettable journey. Be prepared for the feels because this story certainly has them…
