Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-Emery is a 17-year-old epileptic who claims to time travel while she is having seizures. No one believes her, of course, but then, suddenly, enough weirdness happens during an episode to get the attention of her father, who is a muckety-muck research doctor. While hospitalized, she runs away and meets Ash, a boy whom she sees in her visions but who turns out to be a real person, and she is suddenly caught up in a whirlwind adventure. What are her visions trying to tell her? Who is chasing her? Is all of this real or a product of her seizures? Flutter is an interesting read, and the characters are well-rounded. There is enough suspense to keep readers going through the slow spots, and though the story can shift abruptly due to the time jumps, the plot progresses nicely and combines suspense, family drama, science fiction, and romance. Though readers will most likely guess the ending, they will enjoy the ride.-Saleena L. Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Seventeen-year-old Emery Land is brilliant but physically damaged. She sleeps every night in a hospital where a team of doctors studies her condition, as she suffers from frequent seizures. Emery calls them loops because, to her, they’re more like time traveling. She sees her scientist father as an old man, gently mellowed from his current distant self, and she sees a young boy with whom she clearly has a special, if undefined, connection. Desperate to find out what it all means, Emery runs away, taking a bus to the remote Michigan town that the boy told her about. There she finds a welcoming community and meets Ash, a handsome young drifter who is clearly trying to work through intense guilt with philanthropic acts. As her health spirals downwards, Emery begins to understand what’s going on and what her visions really mean. Comfortably predictable romance is deepened here by genuine curiosity about an afterlife and a strong ethical sense of karma. There are few surprises and minimal characterization, but Linko takes the reader on a reflective journey that will inspire discussion. Grades 7-12. --Debbie Carton

I don't think I had any real expectations for this book, but Flutter really surprised me. It captured my attention from the very beginning and held it all the way to the very end.

Seventeen year old Emery lives her life in a hospital, she has been having "loops" since she was little and as she became older it has become worse to where she can't even go on with day to day activities without looping (time traveling). The loops are slowly killing her and she knows it. When she loops she sometimes visits people from her past, she goes to the future and most of the time she meets up with a little boy. At first things are vague but eventually her time spent with the little boy becomes more and more vivid to the point where she runs away from the hospital and her father who looks at her as a lab rat to experiment on and ventures off to find out more about the little boy and what he wants from her.

Hmm where to really start, I really thought I knew what was going on the entire time but boy was I wrong about everything literally. And I loved it! This book was not predictable at all, I would have never guessed what was really up with her loops and no way did I even imagine for it to the end the way that it did. After I was finished reading I was walking around just a little shocked because I did not see it coming, the ending came out of left field. It was sad and beautiful all at once.

As for the two main characters Emery and Ash they both had depth to them, and I liked the fact that it wasn't all centered around Emery. Ash also had some messed up things going on in his life that made him and easily believable character. I loved the chemistry between the two and the fact that it took time for their feelings to develop for each other.

Overall Flutter was a wonderful read and I really am looking forward to see what else Gina Linko writes in the future.

This is a great choice for teens that love both realistic fiction AND sci-fi/fantasy. (And adults that can't get enough of teen fiction.) :)
Realistic fiction fans will relate to the character conflicts and salivate over the developing relationship between Emery and Ash. Sci-fi/fantasy junkies will be desperate to figure out Emery's loops. Is it really time travel? Is it all in her head (and body)? Or could it be something else entirely?
The building tension will keep readers glued to the pages: I literally inhaled the last 100 pages! I'll be recommending we purchase it for our YA collection at the library.

Awesome! Very interesting story. What does she have? Epilepsy, her dad and the doctors say. But she knows its really something else. Time travel? Where does she really go when she has a seizure?
The story unfolds with all the frustration, confusion, and speculation that Emery feels conveyed so strongly to the reader, one cannot help but get drawn into the story. The possibilities of what's really happening are astounding.

I found out this book was available for the Kindle and I downloaded it. After dinner that night, I casually started reading it. Little did I know that I would get hooked! I finished the book that night - I couldn't put it down. I found myself reading faster and faster - just to know what was going to happen next. I fell in love with the characters, and Gina Linko's writing made me feel like I was there. There are surprises as the story goes along - ones that made me gasp - out loud! Oh, and the ending made me cheer - again, out loud. I would highly recommend this book for young adults and even young-at-heart adults. This is a must read for anyone! I bought two copies for my nieces as Christmas gifts - but now that I've read it - they'll be getting it this weekend. :)

When I started Flutter, I wasn't sure if it would be up my alley. I mean, I am a teen, but I don't always like young adult because it's can be simplicfied, and I usually stick to adult fiction. But once I started, I was hooked immediately. Emery Land is a teen with some kind of epilepsy or seizures, and she is experiencing what she calls "loops" when she has these seizures that take her to another time. No one believes her, so she has to escape her controlling doctor father to try to figure them out herself. Once she leaves, she meets Ash, who is like the perfect male protagonist and love interest because he's trying to do good deeds to right his dark past. He's sensitive but a little dangerous because we don't know exactly where he came from. The two get roped into the mystery of finding out about her loops together, while stuck in a snowy cabin together. It makes for such a romantic, tense setting, and I couldn't put it down. What I really loved, though, is Linko's writing. She is subtle and smart, where many YA authors hit you over the head with clues and bad dialogue. Flutter us the kind of story where you just feel emersed in the author's world and the characters in it, and you can escape yours. I would recommend this book to any teens who like romance and sci-fi. It's worth the read.

If you like to be thrilled, this book is for you! Flutter is one of those books you don't want to put down because you are constantly wanting to know what's in store next. Emry's "looping" (from seizures) that takes her back and forth in time, along with the development of the various relationships in this book, makes for an interesting, suspensful storyline with exciting twists and turns. And the ending? GENIUS! Gina Linko amazed and impressed me with Flutter. I feel like I hit the jackpot and can't wait to see what else this author has in store for us in the future!
