Jim Powell and his extended family of friends throughout the valley are anxious for the power to be restored. Lights have flickered a few times and there seems to be activity at the nearest power plant. The government has sent out several messages about bringing the power back and what it would take for citizens to reap the benefits. The cost is something the Jim and his friends may not be willing to pay.
Horton’s sixth novel in The Borrowed World Series, Switched On is his best one yet. When I started reading it I had the feeling of sitting down to catch up with an old friend. No matter what I didn’t want to stop reading. The heartbreaking loss had me grabbing a tissue. To me, if there is an emotional response from me then that is a sign of a talented writer.
As good as the story was there were numerous errors that should have been caught prior to publication. For that reason alone, I cannot give it five stars.
4 out of 5 stars.
