Goodreads Summary:

After moving to Mexico with her parents, Winter Gutan had been hoping the local alternative medicine doctor would cure her mother’s illness. When her mother does not survive his controversial treatments, Winter’s life spirals in despair. Her father, a software engineer, insists his computer program, Fractalistic, will enable them to communicate with her mother’s spirit. But as his sanity begins to slip, Winter confides in her friend Rafa, a computer wizard, who tells her he’s found information about using fractal technology to treat false memories—nothing paranormal about it, leaving Winter confused and without hope. Will she lose her mother forever?

Suspecting her dad is hiding a deep secret, Winter runs Fractalistic behind his back, unveiling a sea of computer-generated imagery swirling on the screen. Her mother appears to her…begging for help! But is this all just Winter’s imagination?

Fractalistic may enable Winter to communicate with her deceased mother, but it might also unleash more mysterious memories buried within Winter’s mind. To figure it all out, Winter must hack into her father’s system to uncover a horrifying truth…or remain in the dark forever.

My Review:

When I read the blurb for this, I just knew it would be awesome. The concept is super intriguing, and I’ll just say the book does not disappoint. And that cover is so lovely, makes me want to float in it myself!

In Fractalistic, we follow Winter, whose Mom has passed away. Winter’s dad has been slipping since her mom died, turning to alcohol and becoming unattached, while using fractals to try to locate her mom. This concept is so cool!

Winter starts a new school and meets some interesting people—enter Julia and Rafi. Rafi was one of my favorites because he was both geeky and sporty, an awesome all in one package.

What I liked in this book was some of the strange things that happen to Winter. There is a really cool scene that occurs with her during her art class! And let me not forget about the nice twists in the book! Fractalistic is a very character driven with great writing, emotions, and originality!

“Hits the sweet spot!” ~New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins

Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games, hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.

Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of Horatio for the Hamlet school play.

When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal’s office, they’re forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival, or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation, especially when it interferes with Lia’s relaxed life and Kiev’s theater role. But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little love in the air.

Excerpt:
The door is
already wide open. Mr. Walker is missing in action, but two guys are already
there—Tweedle Jerk and Tweedle Jerkier.
I’m not
dealing with this crap today. I march up to Cole, who is sitting in my seat
again, and watch as Kiev’s eyes seem to follow me all the way until I’m
standing in between both of them.
“You need
to get out of my seat,” I say to Cole. Does he have his usual basketball shirt
on today? He does.
He holds up
both hands like he’s trying to tame a wild boar. “Calm down. Calm down, Miss
Ophelia Abbie. The bell has not announced the start of this oh-so-wonderful
class.”
I give him
a look of disdain. “Enough with the Ophelia stuff.”
“What’s
wrong with the name Ophelia?” Kiev pipes in. “It’s like the name from Hamlet.”
“What?” I
turn to Kiev, not sure what this idiot is talking about.
“You know,
O-phe-li-a.” He draws the name out super slowly to get his point across.
“I don’t
give a crap about Hamlet—that has nothing to do with my name,” I huff.
Tapping his
fingers on the desk like he’s typing on a keyboard, Kiev stares at my face.
“Are you sure your parents didn’t name you after the character?”
“Who the hell
names their kid after a stupid Shakespearian play?” I’ve read two, and I hated
them both.
“Plenty of
people. Juliet Weaver, in our grade, was named after Romeo and Juliet.”
“Quit being
pretentious.”
“Quit being
a—”
I narrow my
eyes at him. “A what?”
“You know
what you’re being.”
“Shut up,
Kiev. Oh, my parents named me after the capital of Russia, because I’m such an
important person who has to answer questions for people when they don’t need
help answering!” I yell.
“Um, Kiev
is actually the capital of Ukraine.” He bobs his head. “You know that, right?”
I hear Cole’s loud hooting to my right.
That’s it!
Without thinking, I slam my fist directly into Kiev’s nose.

Gerardo’s amazing bio.
Yup. Even though I’m like
one-hundred-and-fifty-nine years old, spelled all out, I love to write about
