LS: The Beginning by Kelvin O'Ralph
A handshake between strangers has never held so much promise for discovery.I started this book two weeks ago. And I just can not get into it. The story line sounds so interesting but I just can not relate to the main characters... probably has something to do with the fact that he feels like a self-absorb teenage boy pretending he is not. I am sure it's a good story and I maybe try to pick it up again, but right now I think I will move on.
When Stephen Wilson meets Lisa Morgan at his new school in Sloutenville, it is the simple act of extending his hand in greeting that flips both of their worlds upside-down. With the gesture, both discover that in some way they are connected, and that they share the ability to manipulate the elements, fire and water. Though their abilities vary, they share the gift of telepathy allowing them to communicate without words, which creates a bond between them stronger than either had expected.
As the two begin to spend more and more time together, David, Lisa's ex becomes wild with jealousy, launching multiple attacks on Lisa. In the fight against the dangers that await them around every corner, Stephen and Lisa soon discover that they are up against much greater odds than they had originally known, and that their struggles are far from over
