Untethered - Katie Hayoz

Published Date: April 3, 2013
Genre: Paranormal
Synopsis: Sylvie isn’t comfortable in her own skin. In fact, there are times she can’t even manage to stay inside it. But if there is one thing she’s sure of, it’s her love for Kevin Phillips. She’s willing to stake everything on it –her family, her friends, and possibly her soul.

Sixteen-year-old Sylvie has been best friends with Cassie forever. But everything is turned around when the boy Sylvie’s loved since fifth grade falls for Cassie. Devastated, Sylvie intends to get Kevin by any means possible, even if it involves treachery, deceit, and the dark side of astral projection. She is positive her plans will give her what she wants, but she doesn’t count on it all spiraling out of control.

Untethered explores the intoxicating and dangerous world of jealousy and obsession when coupled with paranormal ability. Finalist in Mslexia novel competition.

Sadly, this book did not grip me to any means. I was excited to read this book but I had lost interest immediately. The writing wasn't awful but it did not grab as writing should. The main character is rather childish with her antics throughout the book because she did not get the boy of her dreams and rather her friend did.

My thought process: "What? Why? What?" Off and on throughout my head and unfortunately this is a book that I could not finish although I do like paranormal stories. Delving into the world of jealousy and obsession, we find out what really makes Sylvie tick.

Though this is not the book for me, perhaps it will be for others.  Although it pains me for not finishing a book, there is not much that I could do to help myself but to stop reading this.

At a do not finish, did not finish, will not finish, and 2 stars out of 5 stars, I will blog you later, awesome book nerds.
