Review: Reswyt

After her father's death and her grandfather's disappearance,  high school freshman Sabine Jahn moves to Sacramento with her mother.  She doesn't fit in well in her school and the fact that she hasn't been able to sleep at night isn't helping.  Sabine has a tendency to fall asleep in classes and the popular kids like to pick on her.  In fact one breaks a necklace that Sabine's grandfather gave to her.  Actually Sabine discovers that the necklace is actually fixed and then all kind of strangeness starts.

It's no secret that I enjoy reading young adult novels.  I find a lot of times that the plots are fresher and more enjoyable then books written for adults.  RESWYT happens to be one of those novels.  

There is the usual teenage drama about romance and high school that one finds in this genre.  What makes it unique is the mixture of Egyptian mythology and dream interpretation that is added to the pot.  I found that adding in those additions really made for a unique storyline.

Mr. Mayer also did a wonderful job on his characters.  I enjoyed watching Sabine deal with her issues surrounding her father's death and the maturity that she increasingly shows in dealing with problems that I keep cropping up.  I don't want to say more about this issues as that would give too much away about the book.

I was very impressed by this book and recommend it to readers of all ages.  I plan on picking up the next book as soon as I can.

I rate this book a 4.5.
