GoodReads Summary:
Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can’t control it, and it’s getting worse. Afraid of becoming a lab-rat, Sam keeps her ability secret, until fellow runner Will Baker sees her vanish into thin air. Will promises secrecy and help, and Sam begins to fall in love.

Together, the two discover there are worse things than being a scientific curiosity. Someone’s been killing people who possess Sam's gene. A mysterious man from France sends letters that offer hope for safety, but also reveal a sinister connection with Nazi experiments.

The more time Sam spends with Will, the less she can imagine life without him. When Sam uncovers secrets from her past, she must choose between keeping Will in her life or keeping Will safe.

I wasn't sure what Rippler was going to be when I first asked Cidney Swanson if I could read it. I assumed it was going to be a young adult paranormal romance, just like everything else I read. And I was right...sort of.

There is a bit of romance in Rippler but it definitely doesn't dominate the story.

Right away, on the very first page, we're thrown into the storyline and left to figure out what the heck is going on, where the events fit into the story, and how it will all play out in the end.

The book centers around "rippling", an idea that I have never read about before. So I applaud Cidney Swanson for writing a book with a subject that I have never heard, thought of, or read about before.

Also, that cover is absolutely beautiful!

Favorite Character: Will.
Rating: 3 Stars.
