This is one gorgeous novel. The vivid, precise language drew me in and kept me there with Sovern as she negotiates her grief, and then explores the amazing talents she begins to recognize. I, right along with Sovern, kept searching for patterns and reasons, and the quest kept me mesmerized. And this story, as with the author's first novel, was set in the wonderful ski resort town of Crystal Village, which comes alive in the books. In addition to their physical world, the story allows us to explore the worlds of quantum mechanics and dyslexia. I highly recommend.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738747300, Paperback)

Silence is safe. Fate is not.

When Sovern Briggs survives a car crash, she stops talking to seal in the memory of the final sounds from her mother’s life. As conflict with her father builds and failure in school looms, Sovern seeks relief in a dangerous boyfriend and in speed’s adrenaline edge. These needs collide, leading Sovern to a snowboarding accident that changes her future and perhaps that of our universe.

Life at the Speed of Us weaves dyslexia, math, cutting-edge science, genius, and love into a young woman’s reluctant journey toward grace.

(retrieved from Amazon Tue, 04 Aug 2015 23:48:40 -0400)

After surviving a snowboarding accident, eighteen-year-old Sovern Briggs, still grieving over the death of her mother, experiences uncanny insights into new realms of perception.
