I didn’t want to take the traditional path. First, I wasn’t ready for college. Second, I was going to live with my best friend, Tiff, and work at the Haunted House. Third, did I mention the hot guy Josh that works there too?
The most exciting thing about Austria’s new job, at a local haunted house, was the fact that the toughest looking people screamed the loudest. But when she meets the boy without a home, Josh, Austria’s life takes intriguing and eventful turns. Up until now, Josh has managed to hang with his Street crowd, but they’re in danger, and so is Austria, the girl Josh recently fell for. The group finds themselves joining forces with previously considered enemies who also now find themselves in danger.
Deeply compassionate and full of twists, Altered Helix captures the struggle of polarized people that must work together for the greater good.
Altered Helix Book Excerpt
It’s amazing how easy it is to let go when you realize you have no other choice. Something changes in my body. The blood flows so fiercely I must be bleeding out. I’m dizzy. There’s a strong metallic scent. My eyes roll back. I must be spinning. Could every particle be floating away from me one by one? I feel weightless, as if I’m floating in the air. As if I don’t have a body, but just my soul is rising.
I feel emotions I’ve never felt. I don’t have fear, anger, or regret. Facts and figures that I never knew before run through my head. I know planets that I’ve never seen in a textbook or on the internet. I know the rate at which a black hole rotates. I feel emotion from the clouds, empathetic with the wind. I feel love from the sun. Not just light and heat, but actual love like a dear friend’s. What is all this?
