Lights Over Emerald Creek by Shelley Davidow
Inspired, I suppose, by Pythagoreans music of the spheres, this is a teen paranormal romance with a rather different twist. When sixteen year old Lucy sees unexplainable balls of light hovering over the water near her Australian outback home and later finds a geometric shape in the sand there, she begins to research the mystery and in her online research contacts Jonathan, a college music major in Scotland. They send e-mails back and forth and he wants to come and visit her, but she does not want him to know that she is now paraplegic due to a car wreck that killed her mother. As she investigates the lights and sounds, she is drawn into another dimension, a parallel universe where only she can change things. As she is drawn there, Jonathan is drawn to her in this first book in a fascinating series. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I look forward to reading future books in this series.
