About the Author
Young adult author Christina Benjamin grew up in the small town of La Plume, PA, where at an early age her playful imagination lent itself to love the art of story telling. She began to write short stories in grade school and continued practicing her craft all the way through college where she attended the University of Central Florida to complete her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Technical Writing. After spending some time writing for blogs and websites, she was inspired to get back to her true love of telling stories, and dove head first into The Geneva Project, her first novel. Christina now lives in Florida with her husband, dog and cats and spends her free time writing The Geneva Project series.

Secrets picks up where Truth ended. Pretty much that same moment, we go right back into it not skipping a beat. Tippy now knows she is Geneva, the Eva, the one meant to lead the Beto people and all on the island back to a peaceful way of life. The Book of Secrets gave her more than she bargained for with the whole destiny and a sister she never would have asked for. Still this is not the end she has many more secrets to uncover, some dark and mysterious. Geneva must decide who she can trust with her secrets and which she must keep to herself.
When we left Tippy, aka Geneva, in Truth she just found out her destiny and oh yeah Jemma, her enemy is now her older sister. Shock set in now. It's overwhelming to learn all of this. Add to that she had just put an end to an evil hunting them and she needed a moment. Things quickly get into gear as the gang joins with the Beto people in the forest, constantly on the move to keep themselves safe. My thoughts and theories about a couple things were in fact true, I'm that good. Though I admit it happened in a different way than expected. In Secrets we get to meet so many new characters while still learning new things about the ones we already love. My favorite new addition was Jovi. We found out more about the legends and history of the island. This is important if they wish to change the past and not let history repeat itself.
Along with tons of character development and growth, because Eva has some serious stuff to cope with. Sure she doesn't always make the sound decisions but she's young and she's overwhelmed and I had a hard time being upset about any mistakes or decisions she made based on flawed logic because of that. I loved being in her head and seeing just what she was going through and how she came to her decisions. Even when things are not explained to her fully or she is lied to and betrayed she still finds it in her heart to do what is best for everyone and not take a vindictive stance. That shows me she is a good leader. She has her moments and she may do some things against her personal desires and get a touch of payback in there but she at least feels bad after. Heads up I didn't feel bad at all. I'm not even going to try and describe the tension of all types between all the characters, lots of emotions and feels happening there but I think it was best to experience so I don't want you to be expecting anything specific and ruin the ah ha moment. I'll just say wow…some stuff is going down. High drama levels down right.
Secrets also focuses on their mission. They need to find the four pillars. Eva believes that the best place they will be is back at the orphanage they escaped from. They have to go back. No one is excited at the prospect of course but it's a necessary evil they must work towards with the best plan possible. The road is dangerous, more so as in this book we find out more of the other side, the evil group that are seeking out Eva and the pillars for a completely opposite reason than peace and unity. Seeing things happen from both angles and knowing how more than the other characters made it all the more intense.
There is so much happening in the book. Things never stop moving. The continued world building is astounding and completely natural as they learn about the legends and at the same time it blends so easily into the characters stories it's perfect. I really enjoyed this book and I'm beyond excited for book three: Lies to come out next month.
I loved this book. I'm so attached to these characters and are always rutting for them. I want them to suceed with each page. I am loving how many twists and turns there are throughout the series. I love that the theme of this book is secrets. They all have so many secrets and nothing works out well until the truth is revealed. That can't succeed with the secrets but they all feel like the secrets are protecting one person or the other. I think it teaches a valuable lesson to everyone. I have enjoyed this journey with all the kids that quickly became adults. Geneva is embracing her destiny and trying to save Lux which makes me smile. I love how much she has changed from the first book. The story is flowing so nicely. I can't wait to read the next book.
I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.
Some spoilers if you didn't read the first book
Geneva awakes hoping it was all a dream. She is sad to find out it wasn't. She now knows that she is Geneva, the chosen one who will lead the people to peace. She has left her old name behind. She now must face the fact that Jenna is her sister. They have never gotten along, and she has a difficult time reconciling the person she has known with a person that can actually be related to her. With everything on her shoulders, Geneva is overwhelmed.
The second book continues the saga. I would love to have the power to communicate with animals. It was fascinating. I was disappointed to have the love triangle continue. There is a good enough story that we shouldn't have to wade through that. Ok I am not a fan of the love triangle. I think it has been overused the last five years or so, but that is my opinion. Geneva also seems to be in danger a lot, and I mean a lot. It was an entertaining continuation of the series. I am looking forward to the third book. I hope that these books are eventually turned into audio books. Some stories are meant to be told out loud, and I believe Geneva's story is one of them.
