Giveaway, Read-Along, and Review of Owlet by: Emma Micheals

Welcome to this stop on Emma Micheal's Tour!  I am thrilled to have her!!  For those of you who are following along and, for those of you just joining us, do I have a treat for you!!  Let's take a look at the book details:
Owlet Summary
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 façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.
“I think we both need to do this. You should get to see the island and I need to face my fear. It isn’t like either of us has to swim there or anything.”

“I don’t know how to swim,” Iris said with a shrug, trying not to fall asleep again.

“I know. Don’t go into the water, because if anything happens I can’t swim to get you. So you have to promise me. Okay?”

“It isn’t like I have a death wish or anything! Do you have any idea how cold the water here is supposed to be? I used a search engine after you gave me the ticket. No one can swim across even if they wanted to.” Iris watched Diana’s face as relief swept over it, immediately replaced with a look of total confusion.

“You can find the island with that? Just from a ticket?” Diana turned and the trees that had surrounded them on the roads thinned as they broke through the woods and reached a beach.

“No, but you can find that one, and there were only three local islands on the map,” Iris said, pointing across the water to a large island in the distance. She was going to tell Diana about how hard it was for her to find the area and that she finally had to use satellite images to spot it, but she stopped when she looked across the water as the island came into view.

We are here. You found it. Let’s go!
