Wow! This book sounds fantastic! This reverie alone had me sold. I love young adult and sci fi books. I can't wait to read in full details everything that Piper goes through and discovers about herself.

"Prophase: A Present Tale" by Mitchel Street sounds quite interesting. Piper must be devasted and lonely after her mum's death. Also, the responsibility of taking care of an alcoholic father and younger siblings must be a tough one. She is trying to make most of her life by moving forward regardless of her background. Kudos to the author.

Wow. I honestly couldn’t put it down. In Prophase: A Present Tale, I was intrigued right off the bat. The scene of Piper’s mother giving birth pulled me in but also left me with so many questions. I NEED to know what happens next. What was her mother trying NOT to think about? What was she hiding?

Street clearly has a knack for suspense and is able to build on his characters in a way that makes them feel completely real. I feel like this story wouldn’t be the same without both.

I think what blew me away as a writer, was his ability to quickly develop the supporting characters as well. I didn’t know I need that much info about them but now couldn’t see it the same without it.

The book has an interesting storyline, but the magical aspect stops me from reading the book. I'll pass the book. Sorry.

Already hungry for a read because the plot is insightful to purpose discovery in life. Some situations and circumstances comes only to expose the true reason we were born for. Piper's, mother's death, and the boyfriend's disappointment, all came for one reason I assume; to expose her purpose. Thanks for the informative review.
WE BELIEVE IN EXCELLENCE.

Looking at the book cover I'm starting to wonder if Piper was a wolf or something. Intetesting. Thanks for a grear review.

The premise of this novel sounds very interesting, and I do enjoy fantasy novels & coming of age novels. I’m not quite sure if this book is for me, but it’s worth checking out. Thank you.

Thanks for your review. I like coming of age books as it's interesting to see characters find their true selfs. This one is not for me though, as I rarely read fantasy.

This sounds like a fun coming of age novel! I love the fantasy aspect mixed in with real life problems. It's too bad about the character development; that's a major thing I look for in a book. Thanks for an interesting review!
