The Journeys of John and Julia review & giveaway

The Journeys of John and Julia in Chapter One: Genesis is the first book in a new series of novels.  It is geared towards young adults, but I more than enjoyed it myself!  It starts off in the summer as Julia finds out that she can no longer go to the summer camp that she worked so hard to get into during the school year.  Instead, she is going to be spending the summer with her grandmother.  It is a place she hasn't been since her grandfather passed away, and she isn't entirely sure she wants to be there.

John lives in the same town as Julia's grandmother, and had always enjoyed hanging out with Julia while they were growing up.  Julia's grandfather's death was also very difficult on John, who looked up to him immensely.  John is more accepting of supernatural tendencies, and will help Julia through their journeys to understand her own abilities.

What happens behind these scenes is very exciting.  We come to find out that there is a group called The Twenty-Two, and they have a hand in everything that happens in the world around us.  This book puts you in the line of thinking that perhaps there is some greater force out there that influences our decisions.

This book is just the first in the seven book series, so we are only scratching the surface.  The book is incredibly entertaining, and if you enjoy fantasy type books, this will be right up your alley!  There is an online community being built as well, which you can visit here: This Mind is Not for Sale and the book site here:  The Journeys of John and Julia.
