Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.
Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.

5 OF 5 OWLET AND FALCON
I would like to give a HUGE Thank You to Tribute books for allowing to read and review Owlet and be a part of the tour. I have to say that this book had me gripped from the very first page. Lord can you imagine losing your memory. You can't remember your friends your family nothing your brain is just a blank canvas. That has got to be the most frightening thing ever for someone to experience. Well welcome to Iris's world. She has lost her memories and when she asks her father about things he is evasive not telling her a thing. She has so many questions and no answers.
Iris lives in a fantasy land because she has these dreams and she wishes she could go there to this place she dreams about and to meet the boy she dreams about. One day her wishes comes true because she has an asthma attack and her caretaker brings her to an island at her fathers request. This is where all the secrets and lies will be revealed because Iris soon finds out that the flash backs or dreams she has had are true things that have happened to her. Oh and the boy, yes he is not imaginary but real and has secrets of his own.
Once on the island Iris starts to uncover the truth and find out what her family has been hiding from her. What will she do when she finds out the truth? What will the boy she dreams about do? Come along for the greatest ride. I loved how Emma told this story unfolding with different things at different times and never once slowing down. I need the second book ASAP!
READ ALONG SNIPPET:
He looked shocked as he stared into her eyes, the same eyes he normally couldn’t force himself to look at when he was emotional. They exactly mirrored her grandmother’s unique eyes, a light hazel that was almost yellow, with just a touch of green that offered a hint of mystery. They were the one thing he remembered about his own mother and Iris knew it. He had told her once that his parents were never a part of his life; he only remembered that one remarkable feature.
Tell him quickly. He doesn’t understand. He needs to understand.“I have had the same dream a few times. It is an island covered in feathers...well, snow, I mean. I just think about them as feathers. It has a house on it with this red door. It must have been from a book but...it is just so vivid and striking...so beautiful.”
“Stop,” he said; his eyes grew wide, looking everywhere but in her direction, and his face had drained of all color. “What do these feathers look like?”
