From the start, the author does an excellent job setting up a peculiar town which, as we discover through the eyes of our protagonists, is brimming with paranormal secrets and mystery. The family at the heart of this story--a husband, wife, and their teen-aged son and daughter--are bursting with personality and likeability. The dialogue is clever, the dynamics are relatable, and the characters feel relatively fresh. Usually, teen characters are often swarming with overused stereotypes. While Jules and Elliot do harbor some of these typical teen traits, their overall nature and connection to each other, their parents, and the strangeness surrounding them gives them a unique edge that makes them a joy to read about.
The story is nicely paced and the tension builds well, the atmosphere of Anywhere is excellent, and left me wanting to read even more! I do hope the author revisits this world! I'd highly recommend this story to fans of the paranormal, or those simply looking for a different kind of story revolving around teenagers.
