Book Review: Energy Book 1: Jasmine

                              Today's review is on Energy Book 1: Jasmine

Jasmine is the first book that I have read form this author, and was a nice change from the other paranormal type books that I usually read.

Jasmine is a 16 year-old girl who's life is in constant flux. Due to her father's top secret job in the military, they move frequently. Because of this, Jasmine has learned to fade in with the background. To not make friends, and keep to herself. That all changes however, when her and her father move to Omaha, Nebraska.

During Art class, Jasmine meets Yumi and has an unexplainable feeling that she has known her before. Yuim too, feels the same. She feels that somehow Jasmine will be the key to "the mission" she and her friends are on. She just has to convince them of that too, but it won't be easy.

It's only when Yumi is sick for a few days does Jasmine find out the truth about this group of friends. Not only are they rude, and mean, they're not even human.

This promises to be an interesting series. My only complaints are that first, Jasmine didn't find out that they were not human until almost the very end, and second, there were a bit more editing mistakes than I would have liked. (Though I don't like to see any in a published work.)
There is definitely room for improvement, and I will be looking for it in book 2.
