Présentation de l'éditeur

Fans of fantasy, paranormal, superpowers, and romance will be entranced with this book. 
Sixteen-year-old Calli Courtnae surprisingly breaks the 100-meter world record at a high school track meet and is whisked off to Montana to train for Olympic tryouts. Upon arriving, however, she finds something totally unexpected. Her fellow athletes are secretive, mysterious, paranoid, uncommonly beautiful--and endowed with the same gift of superhuman speed she now exhibits. The truth, Calli learns, is she has been brought to Montana to join an elite clan of Runners who train to undertake highly secret missions for the benefit of superhuman kids everywhere.



When three Runners from her compound are kidnapped by a clan of evil terrorists who can kill with their thoughts, Calli is assigned to the team that must deliver a rare magic diamond to the terrorists in exchange for the hostages. Calli is just beginning to accept her new world when it is turned upside-down by a mysterious woman who secretly gives Calli the real diamond, while the team leader is given a decoy. Almost immediately the magic diamond in Calli's pocket unleashes within her a startling range of supernatural powers and mind-reading abilities. Using her new-found powers, Calli exposes traitors among her team, has visions of her companions' tragic futures, and learns she alone holds the power to change the outcome. While Calli knows her powers derive from the secret diamond in her pocket, her companions do not, and Calli dreads the fast-approaching day when they will discover the truth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book, original concept. 13 août 2011
Par Catch that Bee..!!!! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I really enjoyed A Diamond in My Pocket. I read it in one sitting without even realizing that time had passed. It is a YA Paranormal, although I think this book will appeal to any age. Ahem... I am FAR from a YA...I am not going to tell you my age. Let's just say over 35. lol! I would say that it is for an older teen audience...maybe PG-15/16(?- Depends on how mature the child is.) There is bullying, attempted kidnapping, suicide and death.(some violent)

I hope the author is working on the next book, I'm really curious to see where the story goes. In the meantime, I may check out her other Kindle offerings.

Happy Reading

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good overall! Better if proofed! 15 août 2011

I found this book to be so interesting that I couldn't put it down! I read it straight through in a matter of five hours! I haven't read anything like this and I've read thousands of books! I have one suggestion: if you had this proofread, find someone else to do it after them. The first few mistakes are easy to overlook, but it becomes annoying after the first ten. I would be more than happy to assist you for the mere pleasure of reading another of your wonderful stories.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting idea. Poorly executed. 28 août 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

The idea behind the novel is original. In its favor are the unique plot, good pacing, and potential to expand the story. It could have been a really good book but for several issues. The character development is very shallow. The textual errors are very distracting ("vein" vs "vain" and inappropriate apostrophes for example), and there are many. And the writing is highly inconsistent. A good editor could have massaged the idea into a decent book series. Two stars for originality and voice.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent, doesn't really stand out 12 août 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

More of a paranormal YA novel than a superhero story, "A Diamond In My Pocket" is decent, but didn't quite grab me. The writing style is alright, but something was lacking. If I had to pin it down, it would be whatever's the prose equivalent of meter- rhythm, maybe? It's the effect of using comma's instead of semicolons, breaking sentences up versus keeping them together, and a thousand other stylistic elements that really define the writing style's sentence pacing. Whatever it's called, the lack made the dialogue seem a bit stilted and unrealistic, the descriptions a tad boring. Similarly, the characters didn't have quite enough development, the main plotline lacked the minor side-elements that make a truly great story, and the worldbuilding had a few annoying inconsistencies. Nothing was bad enough to really slam the novel on; neither was anything good enough to promote it. Still, it was free, and ok for a free novel. Possibly enjoyable to teen readers, those with different preferred rhythmic structures to writing.

Par Fall Into Books - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is a quick read and packed with adventure. However, the main character isn't that believable as a teenager, which really hurts with the whole willing suspension of disbelief philosophy. I noticed that many of the characters didn't react within the bell curve of normal in this novel, and the overreactions took me out of the story quite a bit. I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if the characters' reactions had been believable. Instead, they all seemed bipolar half of the time.

Calli, the main character and narrator of the book, is not believable as a teenager. Even the geekiest teenager wouldn't use the words that Calli uses to describe things. Her wording is that of a 30+ year old woman with a college degree, not that of a teenager. Also, her outlooks, both on her life, and on herself are very logical. That's also not normal as a teenager. Considering teenagers have new chemicals firing off in their bodies all the time, it's nearly impossible for them to remain level-headed. That being said, Calli is a nice and likable character, and at least she's comfortable with herself. She doesn't attach herself to and pine after random boys, and she takes the steps necessary to improve her life and herself.

The other characters didn't stand out to me very much. They were all kind of fillers and cookie-cutter stereotypes. The idea, on the other hand, was very interesting. A magical diamond which brings out more abilities for the person who carries it? That's cool within itself. Then when you pair that with the fact that Calli is already a supernatural, then you have the recipe for a terrific plot. There is plenty of action, including bullying, suicide, and attempted kidnapping. Mix that with people who run at superhuman paces, mind-reading, and psychic visions, and you won't be bored for a second with this novel.

The pacing of the book is pretty spot on, and the action starts pretty quickly. It's a shorter book, under 200 pages, and you'll fly through it in no time. This novel did a terrific job of building the world that Calli lives in, and I can't wait to see what happens in the sequel, A Diamond in My Heart, which comes out on January 31, 2012. You'll definitely want to check this book out!
