Radiance (Riley Bloom Series #1)

Radiance - Alyson Noel I read this in just a few hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. I guess this is a spin off of the Immortal Series, which I have on my shelf, but unread. If this is any indication of the writing, I am going to pull them out and start them right away. This is the debut of this series and it starts out wonderfully and I can't wait for the next one. It is written in such an easy way that you can really believe this is a twelve year old girl and what she is thinking. I love how she comes into her own and develops skills that make the most out of her personality. This should get even the most reticent readers on board. I am glad to add this to my recommended books for younger teens and older kids. Nicely done!
