#BookTour: Select Few (Select #2) by @MaritWeisenberg @JeanBookNerd #Giveaway

About the Book:

After rejecting the cult-like influence of her father's family, Julia moves into a fancy hotel in downtown Austin. 

But she finds herself alone except for her boyfriend, John--and her fears. Once again she's suppressing her abilities, afraid her family will come for John when they find out he's been developing abilities of his own in her presence. 

The FBI is also keeping a close eye on Julia hoping she can lead them to her father, Novak, as he's wanted for questioning in his former assistant's death.

With tensions high, Julia and John agree to go separate ways for the summer, paving the way for Julia to reunite with Angus, fellow outcast. 

Together they set out on a road trip to California to find Julia's mom and a way into Novak's secret underground world. Along the way Julia will learn the Puri perhaps aren't the only humans evolving into something different. . . and that maybe she's the leader her people have needed all along.

My Review: I love doing guest reviews for Crossroad Reviews!  Select has been one of my favriote series since I read book one. And so when I was given the oportunity to read book two early I was a full on YES PLEASE!!  This one in this one Julia and her boyfriend are on the run from her family and Julia thinks that if she splits from John that will keep him safe.  I really loved how this one was a great blend of fantasy/scifi, romance, friendship, and family.  

This book was well paced and all of the characters just glowed.  I was glued to the page from the very start and it didn't let me go until the very last page!! I can not wait for more from this world becuase, I want way way more! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes
