C I N (C I N #1)
by Christina Leigh Pritchard
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance/Suspense
Release Date: August 31st 2010
Seventeen year old Lisa Brown’s life is falling apart. First, her mother and father divorce, then their house forecloses and now, her mother has decided to commit herself to a psychiatric hospital.

If that weren’t enough, she must leave sunny south Florida to attend a boarding school full of geniuses in cold, Lynn, Massachusetts. The city where the locals chant “Lynn, Lynn, city of sin; you never come out the way you went in.”

And, they aren’t kidding. Lisa must live in a tiny shack with two strange teenagers, a dog named Pig who growls when you look at him and a cat named Rat. “Mind the cat,” everyone says. What the heck is wrong with this place?

Lisa thinks she’s landed in her own house of horrors with the anti-social Alex and his facetious sister Ally. But, the real drama begins the day she is struck by lightning…

My Review 

Title: C I N
Author: Christina Leigh Pritchard
Format: Digital copy
Source: Author

C I N was definitely an unusual, yet entertaining read full of unexpected twists.

Lisa, our main character, has been sent to stay with her aunt while her mother seeks help for her mental and emotional health. While staying with her aunt, she'll also be forced to attend C I N, an unusual boarding school for geniuses...even though she's of average intelligence as her aunt loves to remind her.

Once she arrives at her aunt's home she encounters an eccentric cast of characters, both two and four-legged including siblings Alex and Ally, a dog named Pig and a cat named Rat. It's obvious to Lisa that this is going to be a big adjustment for her as she doesn't fit in her new environment.  Things get even stranger when she's struck by lightning...twice!

As Lisa gets used to her new temporary home, she discovers some family secrets and interesting facts about her new friends and the town of Lynn. Things that have a major impact on her and the world she knows.

I am not sure what I was expecting when I started this book, but it definitely wasn't this fun, yet deeply emotional read. While the story is filled with humor and fun characters that I'd love to get to know, there is also a heavy and emotional underlying plot involving Lisa's parents that I wasn't expecting. 

Like Lisa, I could sense there was something different about her new home and I couldn't wait to see what new discoveries awaited us.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

My Rating: 4 Stars
