Super Slide

* Reviewed this ARC via a tour put on by the author
* Book will be released March 27, 2012

4 gnomes out of 5 gnomes for having a character who’s quirky yet believable and a killer mystery.  

I love the premise of the story.   It feels plausible too because if the person you trust most looks at you like you’re crazy then it would be hard to know who to trust.  Trust is important in this story and you’ll probably be wishing that the main character Vee trusted the right people sooner.    

Vee has narcolepsy but not exactly the normal kind.  Narcolepsy is one of those diseases that kind of sounds made up but would be horrible to have the more you think about it.  It’s a great/inventive way to explain her ability though.  She for reasons unknown to her is able to slide into people and experience everything they do.  Once she’s slid into someone she can’t help but see what they are doing and feeling.  Because of this she knows much more then she ever wanted to about many of the important people in her life.  

She’s undergone quite the transformation since she slid into her ex-best friend and watched her do nothing as something horrible happened.  Vee has a lot of pain to work through after her mother died and her problems just keep piling up.  Her narcolepsy/sliding problem seems to be getting worse.

She finds herself sliding into a murderer and through their eyes sees one of her sister’s best friends killed.  As if that’s not traumatizing enough, everyone thinks that the girl committed suicide.  Vee has no one to turn to because she hasn’t told anybody about what she can do since her dad didn’t believe her when she told him.

There’s not all doom and gloom in this book though, the relationships are all well portrayed and complicated.

This is the kind of story where there are two obvious love interests but the heroine only notices one of them at first.  This means that there’s not really a love triangle because Vee takes so long to notice that the other guy actually likes her.  

The mystery in this book will leave you guessing.  I sure didn’t know who the bad guy would turn out to be.  Even after the big reveal there are still a lot of questions about what Vee’s future will be and how her family will cope.  

This is a great story with a big mystery and a lot of twists and turns.  Vee’s quite the character and I can’t wait to see what happens next.


  1. Looking forward to reading this. I love mysteries that keep me guessing. Great Review.

    1. Thanks :) Yeah this book is a great mix of mystery and supernatural elements. (I also really liked that it wasn't an easy mystery to solve.)
