This author is a prolific writer and almost everything I have read of her works I have enjoyed--some have been okay--but others I have loved.  This is one of those books  AND bonus--I was able to read this book on Kindle Unlimited.  My tight fisted self does LOVE to get a bargain.  In case you are not a member of Kindle Unlimited (highly recommend) HERE is the link to the book.  AND here is my disclaimer--I am an Amazon Associate and IF you buy the book following my link I will be compensated a VERY small amount---I cannot remember the last time they paid me anything.  Also any funds I receive I donate to the least of these causes.

NOW enough of the business stuff and on to what matters---THIS BOOK!  I really loved this book for it is based on a coming of age -Tom Sawyer type-story.   AND Tom is a female in this story.   Being an orphan at the ripe old age of 13 must be unbelievingly difficult, but compound that with the reality of having to live with an aunt with whom there is no love lost on either side--might make any of us to  want  to flee.  Add to that--being a genius and in college at 13 (Shades of Young Shelton)  and living with a family hundreds of miles from home.  The mother she lives with has a son who is "different"---and though we are only told he dresses and looks "different"--I suspect there is much more.  Our minds are left to take our best guess.  These two form a strong bond---NOT anything more than friendship--but captivating to see how it grows.   These are the two main characters--who lead an adventure of a lifetime at 17 and 13 years of age.  Wanting to satisfy one item off their bucket list--they head north in search of the Northern Lights (aurora borealis).  The details of the adventure, the people they meet along the way all lead to a wonderful story.  I will NOT spoil the ending--but suffice it to say--it was satisfying.  I HIGHLY recommend this book.
