Chaos Theory by M. Evonne Dobson

Seventeen-year-old Kami is into science, way smarter than she should be, a little obtuse, and born to investigate. The kind of girl who excels in Martial Arts and runs a chaos theory experiment in her locker.

Kami finds a way to focus her talents when she meets Daniel, whose younger sister Julia died from an overdose of prescription drugs—drugs that the cops think came from Daniel’s stash. First Daniel turns up at Kami’s MA class, and later she saves him from a couple of drug dealers at the local skate park. Neither episode endears him to her, but Kami views life as a series of data points, and in Daniel’s case, the data do not add up.

I was not thrilled to start this book, but once I did, I couldn’t stop. I was literally getting lost in the words and it was like a movie going on in my head. The story was very developed, but slightly unlikely or unrealistic. I understand that this is a work of fiction but it would’ve been nice to say “Wow! I can’t tell whether this is real life or not!” It was a truly wonderful book nonetheless.

I did not, however, like Kami. She was just slightly more than annoying throughout all this ordeal. I did appreciate her love for science though.

This book was a complete shocker. The blurb doesn’t do it justice. It was a really good book and by the end (SPOILER) I was crying. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery. This book is getting a hardy 4/5 stars.

[ I received a free copy of this book on a read to review basis thanks to its publisher and Netgalley.]
