#BookReview: Vicarious (Vicarious, #1) by @pstokesbooks @TorTeen

 
Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, work as high-tech stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you—for a price.

When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter is devastated. She won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the digital recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.





Paula Stokes grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where she studied psychology and nursing. In between her degrees, she spent a year teaching English in Seoul, South Korea. Paula is the author of several books for teens, including Liars, Inc.When she's not writing, she's reading, kayaking, hiking, or seeking out new adventures in faraway lands. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon.


This one was pretty interesting. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This one has everything you could ask for in a great story. Romance, Action, and some great Sci-fi blended in to create a really awesome story. This one starts out with a bang and ends the same way. I am so glad that I got book two because I couldn't put this down.  The story had great pacing and the characters were wonderful. I loved Winter and her ever determination. I loved getting parts about their her and Rose's past and getting bits of the mystery. I never saw any of it coming and this is one that you will want book two near you so you can start it right after finishing this one!
