A Penny Lost, Aspen Bassett

Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review. 

The Blurb

Penelope Grace, usually forgotten under the shadow of her twin sister's perfection, tries her hardest to hide her freakish ability to see into anyone's soul.

Until she senses an unusual energy like a human shaped void in the universe. When Penny investigates the source, she gets tossed through a crack in time along with the cute boy next door. The Void follows them through history, increasing the dangers as if testing Penny. But what is it testing for? And why does it claim to know her better than even she knows herself? Even as Penny searches for answers, she must fight to survive the tragedies of both the past and future in order to get back home.

My Thoughts 

I was very intrigued by this book, and I ended up finding it absolutely fascination.

Not only does it have a very original plot, I found that it also showcased a very interesting writing style, focusing on emotions and settings in a beautiful way. The scenes felt almost cinematic and were fast-paced, intense and well built. I absolutely loved the descriptions of feelings, which felt raw and gripping.

The characters were also great, and I especially loved Penny.

I really liked the historical elements of the plot, as well as how realistic it sounded, with a subtle dose of paranormal elements.
