Entangled Teen

Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away.

And now, the Pit Viper is back.

Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town…except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge.

But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him.

Frequency was great and weird all at the same time.

I cannot even begin to explain it.  When I started reading, it brought to mind that old Pied Piper legend, but darker and more twisted, not that the old legend was sunshine and rainbows.

So here we meet Fiona as a young girl as she witnesses an interaction that has a huge impact on her. Go a few years later and we see Fiona meeting Pit Viper.

Just so you know Pit Viper is a DJ (our modern Pied Piper) and Fiona is very much into music, but their styles differ.

Things are not as they seem.

Luckily, Fiona is smart…

We have some interesting twists and surprises that is for sure.

As much I really liked Fiona, I really did not like Pit Viper.  There was something about him that was so off, I cannot even put my finger on it, but usually, I can always find something I can “relate” to in a character and this time my friends I am drawing a blank.

Maybe this is what made Frequency feel weird to me, but I can tell you for sure that it was very different from what I expected.

I like to be surprised from time to time and Frequency did that.

If you are keen on books that are a little different than what you would normally expect then Frequency is the one for you.  What I appreciated most about it is that my reaction to it was different and that makes it a standout.

I am certainly not likely to forget it anytime soon.

I am going to be recommending Frequency to you all, and I hope you love it as much as I did.

“It is you,” he said, his voice dark and smooth, like a black diamond, “isn’t it?”
Fiona wanted to play it cool, to pretend like she barely remembered him, but that was impossible. Her heart raced. Her head spun.
“Yes,” she said, her eyes locked on his. “Of course it is.” A smile crept across the Pit Viper’s face. “I knew it was
you,” he said. “At the party. I recognized you.” She nodded. “And I recognized you.”
His smile spread wider. “I was worried you might have forgotten me.”
She bit her lip. Whatever he was making her feel, awe or excitement or whatever, she knew he was feeling the same. “How could I possibly have forgotten you?”
For a brief moment, they were silent, entirely lost in the energy flowing between them—and then Fiona realized, in a blast of cheek-burning embarrassment, that all eyes were on her.
