Troubled teen. Juvenile delinquent. Aja Harmon is familiar with the labels. She and her mom live like gypsies, moving every year. Her mom works as a psychic and Aja fights to suppress her own intuitive abilities because the power scares her.

After losing a cool job at Abercrombie & Fitch, the only work Aja can find is as a waitress at an elderly residence home. Slowly she begins to enjoy working with the seniors. Unlikely bonds forge, making their worlds bigger while shrinking the generation gap.

If only a corrupt police officer hadn't set his sights on Aja—a beautiful girl with a sketchy past. An easy target to add to his twisted collection.

Snow Globe is a story about a teen who tries to do the right thing but continues to find trouble with her smart mouth and fearless attitude. Working at the assisted living facility, Aja learns compassion and how important yet fragile life is.

 Loved this story. I had great dynamic characters and a story that drew me in and kept me engaged the entire time. I have never read any work by this author before but will certainly be looking for some now!

The story had me on the edge of my seat. A beautifully flawed and down on her luck character Aja was just he sort of vision you want to root for, the one you keep reading and hoping that things will finally go her way. This is the character I have been waiting for.

The plot was fast paced but not rushed, I didn't feel like I was confused, or annoyed with anything being thrown at me, it all seemed to flow really well.

It was refreshing to read this story, it was its own and didn't read with the familiar pressures of making these flawless characters. We got to read along with a lead who tried to make the right choices but didn't always get to reap the benefits. This is one of the better ARC's that I have read so far, and I'm in love with the story.

The only thing I felt dragged on a little bit was the wrap-up, it almost read like it could have been summarized in fewer words, but I did like getting to see how this character finally gets to come to terms with things and moves forward with life.

 If you love face paced (but not rushed) stories with amazing main characters and lots of action sand suspense, read this!
