Welcome to the magical world of human/dolphin DNA-engraved relationship.
Clicks is about friendship, family, trust, strong traits embedded in all the characters.
It's about the sea, the dolphins, our commitment to earth, sea, animals and our planet as a whole.
The premise? "It takes a village to raise a child."
Ms. Evans demonstrates it takes courage, devotion and love for the raised child to make the life saving decision to act against the will of her elders and the whole community.
She is boosted with the love of her soul mate and her twin dolphin, through a telepathy mode of communication.
If you want a clean, healthy romance, this is it.
If you want to learn about intuition, soul communication, healing love, surfing, little island life community, science fiction medicine, teenager relationship, first love, connection between twins, private goals and self determination, ethics and compassion, this is it also.

This novel takes place on an island off the coast of California where the relationship between mankind and dolphin pods is extremely sacred and revered. Natives of the island, Cami, her twin, and her group of twin friends understand and acknowledge the rituals and bonds of The Guard, but it isn't until Cami experiences calling and swimming with the pods that she begins to understand her real connection to them. But all too soon the bliss of the summer, tourist season, and the Surf Carnival is brought to a halt as people begin drowning and dolphins begin dying. Shrouded in mystery, Cami must use her wits and her connection to the environment to figure out what is happening to her island, and the secrets Evans weaves into her tale are epic.
I really liked Cami's character; she's a self-assured young woman who wants to excel in all, and finding her white dolphin is like a gift come true. She values and respects the ocean, understanding its power, and her relationship with her dolphin allows her to connect with the environment in a way that she previously was unable to. Watching her interact with her dolphin was extremely cool to watch, and Evans has a way with writing that puts readers right there with the characters, as if we're swimming alongside through the pages. And I loved that the entire novel is cloaked in mystery. As the plot unfolds, more events happen that send the island off-balance, and healthy young teens lose consciousness without medical reason, spurring the reader on as Cami and her friends attempt to find the reason behind the sudden changes; to find the cure.
While I'll admit that I figured out the secret behind it all much sooner than the reveal within the novel due to foreshadowing, I still really enjoyed the aspect of the mystery as it lined up and each characters' involvement was laid bare. As we learn about the island and the plague that tormented the residents of both land and sea in the not so distant past, everything really begins to click (no pun intended), and I really enjoyed Evans' execution of this entire story. The sorrow, fear, and resolve was extremely strong throughout the novel, and the added romance made for some swoon-worthy escapades that brought a smile to my face. Young love can be so beautiful. I highly recommend this to any readers out there curious about dolphins, the ocean, or who are looking for an overall good, clean read.
Clicks is about Cami, a 16 year-old island native anticipating the Surf Carnival, an annual surfing and swimming competition that brings star athletes (and tourists) to Pinhold's shores. This year's event does not go as planned; injuries disrupt the races and an unknown illness shatters Cami's world. Determined to find a cure for her brother and friends, she must unearth the truth about what makes her island unlike anywhere else on Earth.
There are aspects of Clicks that make it a truly original story. One is that the culture of Pinhold is deeply rooted in its relationship with the pods of dolphins that surround it. Elders say the connection is literal, while the younger generations consider it symbolic at best. This tension between truth and lore is a wonderful facet of Cami's world, and it brings to light the conflict between conservation and progress.
Another thing: there are five sets of twins in Cami's generation. This is the result of attempts at enlarging the dwindling native island population. The twin bonds are enhanced on Pinhold, making the siblings closer than usual. An unexpected surprise is that each set of twins are named with anagrams: Cami's brother is Mica, for example. As a reader, I found this to be so creative - and humbling, as I should have caught on long before it was explained in the book.
An underlying theme of Clicks (for me) was the importance of relationships - teens can be wired to think mostly of themselves. Cami is forced to look beyond her struggles and recognize the links between people, places and things: nature, home, family, love, and in her case, one special dolphin. It is a tremendous coming of age story filled with laughs, love and action; you should read it.
