For Hanna, life has always been a bit, difficult to say the least. She lives with her grandparents while her parents travel the world researching one animal or another, and to make matters worse she has blackouts. Well she used to have them, she hadn't had one in over ten years until today. Golden! When she first had one all she remembered was waking up from it with no memory of anything before the blackout, nothing, no matter how hard she tried! Now she is having them again, and her only friend, newcomer to town Owen Pierce, who just happened to be a police officer, is now acting strange and then there is the stranger in town William Vann, who saved her life. She feels a strong connection to him somehow. The more she asks her grandparents about before the blackouts, the more they tell her to leave it alone, but Hanna feels a need to know, that something is going on, but what! Author Melinda Michaels gives the reader a wonderful fantasy, coming of age tale to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Although Golden is writing in the fantasy genre it is definitely a coming of age story, one where Hanna must come to terms with her past and her future. To learn what is most important and right and to do that very thing. It is not always easy and takes bravery and courage to do what needs to be done. Author Melinda Michaels gives you a strong main character that is tried of being outcast for reasons she doesn't have a clue about, she just wants to be herself, whatever that may be. Wonderfully engaging tale for teens, young adults, and adults alike. Would even be willing to recommend it for middle school readers.
