MEANT TO BE by TIFFANY KING was one of those books that I read in one day. It was one of `those' books! If you are an avid reader then you know what I mean! When you pick up a book and the very first paragraph grabs you immediately and you whisper to yourself "I'm not letting go until the very last word!" That's what debut author Tiffany King's new novel MEANT TO BE did to me!

The main character, Krista is incredibly intelligent, a model teenager with loving adoptive parents. Krista's never had friends and keeps to herself, not out of preference but out of necessity. Krista is severely empathetic, unable to get to close to anyone without becoming overwhelmed by their emotions. She doesn't just feel one emotion; she feels them all, sometimes to the point of making her physically ill. The only thing that has kept her sane are her nightly visits with an unknown boy she meets on a twilight beach in her dreams. He has the power to soothe her during these dreams so that she can go on to face another day. She's had these dreams all her life yet she never sees his face but he is as familiar to her as her own self.

After a tragedy, Krista and her mother move to Santa Cruz, a place that Krista has always felt drawn to. It's a special place where she immediately feels at home. The ocean and the beach soothe her but her dreams take a drastic turn the day she arrives in Santa Cruz. Despite Krista's inner turmoil, she vows to make her life there as best as she can for her mother's sake. Krista's enrolled in a prestigious private school where she meets Samantha (Sam) and for the first time in her life she feels connected to a real person and has a true friend who not only understands her but also has the exact same empathy as Krista only she's learned to control it.

When I read the plot synopsis, I thought, "Yes! This is going to be good...I can't wait to read it." The plot synopsis is the reason this is a two-star review and not a one-star review; it really did have promise.... I'm sorry to say it; I mean, I tried to like this book (I paid for it, after all, and if I don't like a book, then I've wasted my money buying it), but just trying to read this book was an uphill battle.

For the purposes of this review, I wanted (needed) to put my finger on WHY exactly I didn't like it, and I came to the following conclusion: When I read a book, I look for a "rhythm" in reading it that has little to do with the plot (it's strictly mechanical in nature) -- this rhythm varies from author to author; once I get the rhythm of his or her writing style down, usually in the first few pages, it's all downhill from there. Then, I can enjoy the twists and turns the author takes me on. Think of it as surfing; once you get the rhythm down, you can rise and fall with the wave and enjoy a thrilling ride back to the beach.

I trudged along to 24% on my Kindle, and I never did find a rhythm. The writing style was either choppy with short, blunt sentences, or tedious with run-on sentences that I thought would never end. I found myself repeatedly going back to paragraphs and trying to figure out what exactly I had just read -- going back repeatedly disrupts the natural flow of reading. Again, using the surfing metaphor, it's like repeatedly falling off of the board before you even catch the wave.

Also worth mentioning is the (lack of) editing in this book. I'm by no means an expert, but I paid attention in English class. There's a difference between "affect" and "effect," and on at least one occasion a mistake between these two words was made.

Krista is not your average teenage girl. She is exceptionally intelligent and can feel the emotions of those around her. The ability to feel these emotions make everyday life very difficult for her. She is unable to even read a sad story with out the emotion consuming her for days at a time. At times these feelings are so intense they make her become extremely ill. On top of that every night for her whole life she has dreamt of the same boy, on the same beach. She feels so connected to him and has yet to see his face. She feels a strong pull to Santa Cruz and, after her father dies, her mother decides that they will move there to start over after losing him.

Here, in Santa Cruz, she finally meets people she can relate to and be friends with. This is something that she has never had the capability of doing. Her life feels like it's making a turn for the better, especially when she finds out that these new friends seem to be able to relate to her more than she could have ever dreamed. These four friends will need each other more than they could ever have imagined.

This is a fantastic debut novel. The story line was amazing and very original. The detail was superb. I was easily able to picture every scene that I was in. I have never read anything quite like it. It was an extremely quick and enjoyable read. I also love that she left it open for a sequel! Yay! I love sequels! I highly recommend that you pick this one up!

The author needs to either a) hire an editor/proofreader, b) take courses in English, or c) get fellow writers to read her books for her and edit/proofread them. While the story is intriguing, I'm suffering through it due to the raw quality of the grammar and spelling. Here is an example:

"True to his word, Mark and Shawn were on my doorstop thirty minutes before school started the next morning. I threw myself in Mark's arms the instant I swung the front door open. I felt no shame for my exuberant reaction when he crushed me to him. The loss of our dreams seemed more pungent this morning. We gave no notice when Sam and Shawn gave us privacy and headed for Mark's Navigator."

This is a fairly random paragraph in the book, and like so many others, it is rife with errors. Ignoring for the moment the style issues, here are a few glaring usage errors:

doorstop = the little thing you use to hold the door open. I doubt two guys could be on one. I think she meant "doorstep."
pungent = smelly. I think she meant "poignant."
gave no notice = when you quit a job right away, without notifying your employer in advance. I think she meant "didn't even notice."

So, good raw material, but I would consider it a draft, not a final version at all.
