Somewhere between falling and flying... there is a girl. Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the fa ade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.

“Owlet” by Emma Michaels is definitely an interesting story. Iris is a 17 year old girl that has severe asthma. She has a dream about an island with white feathers that she is able to escape too. When she learns that this island actually exists, she is sent there were she learns more about her past and why she doesn’t remember her mother at all. Iris begins to learns so much information about herself to the fact that she feels betrayed by her father because he never told her.

The writing in this story is the disappointing part. The concept and plot were great but this novel is just poorly written. It felt rushed and way underdeveloped. The characters were hard to connect too and get to know. The story could have been a lot better with just developing the characters better. I feel like the story needs to be more developed and maybe slow down a bit.

The story could have been much better if it was just taken a back a pace or two. I feel like there was probably a lot of information that was being missed because the story was rushed. I think so much information was crammed into the short 122 Pages and it could have been done a little better to not feel so crammed and rushed.
