Forces of Nature: Natural Selection
About the Author
Elizabeth Sharp learned to read at a very early age. She was always telling stories, so it came as no surprise to my family that as soon as she learned how to form letters, she started writing stories. Her first attempt was very predictable, but it also showed a gift for description and character development. From that point on there was no stopping her. Outside of writing, Elizabeth has a passion for art. After designing her own covers, she received such positive feedback it wasn’t long before she started creating covers for others. A self-proclaimed “techno geek”, she loves cell phones, computers, tablets and all things technological. The internet has to be the greatest invention since the wheel, in her opinion. She lives in a quiet subdivision with her husband, three cats, and far too many electronics. She has a near crippling Facebook addiction, dwarfed only by her addiction to Dr. Pepper. She enjoys making jewelry and costumes. She’s always loved Halloween because it's the one day of the year that you can be what ever you want.

Then strange things start happening as she starts high school. Her brothers best friend, Xander, who she's known for so long seems to have electrocuted her. On top of that he went away for the summer and came back looking even cuter! She can't deny she was attracted to him before, but now he is WOW!
Amelia learns a lot about the secrets her family seem to be hiding from her. Secrets that seem to be putting her in danger now. These secrets are also the same ones they've been hiding that help her to transform into the beautiful women she is to become.
Amelia also learns why there is such a pull/connection between her and Xander and who her siblings really are.
I was definitely pulled in by this book and Lia finding out she is a "natural spirit". I love YA books like this! If you are into magical YA books you definitely want to pick this book up and read it! Elizabeth Sharp writes this story very well and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next!
( because it was free ) and decided that even if I didn't like it, I wouldn't be wasting my money. So I got it. It took me two days to read it. This is a very good book. I'm not a star wars nerd so I don't know what some of it is, but it caught me up in th long run. I really like the romance but I think that there should've been more. That the characters ( Lia and Nate ) were hesitant. I really enjoyed how Xander was the overly protective big bro, and Sariah was the "cat-in-heat" acting bid sis with no flaws what so ever. The parents were a little mysterious to me and Evylin was down right dramatic.
** If you haven't figured this out by now, this is a spoiler alert and if you don't like Sam's then please stop reading... thank you**
I really do think that Sharp could've taken advantage of the many opportunities for more romance. Romance is the key for a YA book. Sorry just my opinion.
Thanks for reading! :)
Lia is a likeable heroine, is sensible, capable, and clever enough. The world building I enjoyed too, the Gaia creatures quite unique and interesting.
As said before though, some of the meta jokes just fall flat. Making wry comments about sparkly vampires, referencing story construction tropes or pop culture in general... Perhaps that Isi moly not my taste in humour. That being said, the story was enjoyable enough or me to finish the series.
