Summary:

Fifteen year old Shaya Willow has just arrived to her first foster home in Chicago. With nine new siblings and a whole summer break ahead of her, she's ready for anything; except the strange accidents that follow her everywhere she goes. Is it coincidence or is someone out to get her? Was her family's death not an accident — a truth far more devastating than being on someone's black list. Can she stay alive long enough to figure it all out?

Thank you! Funny you mention that, because I just decided to try writing it in third. I think it'll fit the story better. Thanks so much for the comment!

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

I am working on a fantasy novel as well, and I don't have any problems with writer's block. I like the idea of writing the chapters in a different sequence so as not to forgot previously mention details and prevent plot holes!

I like it! Not a huge fan of first person POV, but the way you wrote it is very clean and descriptive. I like how you describe your characters more with actions than physical descriptions. I think I'll stick with this...can't wait to read more!

The plotline is actually what's keeping me from writing more. The characters come easily to me, but creating a believable plotline is going to be tough if I keep with the direction I'm headed.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

This book is coming along really well! You're developing a great story here :) I'll definitely be checking back for more, but it looks like you're on your way to an incredible plotline

THANK YOU EVERYONE! You've all gotten me from 218 to 22 place in the matter of one week! I'm getting together the next chapter as fast as I can, but I want it to be perfect, before I post it. Oh and I can't change the title, but the actual title is now THE TRIGGER. Thank you all so much!
