Book Review! Anomaly by Tonya Kuper

Anomaly (Schrodinger's Consortium #1) by Tonya Kuper 
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy/Science Fiction/Romance)
Date Published: June 1, 2010
Publisher: Entangled: Teen

Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it… 
Worst. Birthday. Ever. 

My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…

Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.

When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…

Anomaly is the first book in the Schrodinger's Consortium series by Tonya Kuper. The story is told from alternating point of views between Josie and Reid. Josie is a nerd. She's super smart, pretty, and at times awkward, but it only adds to her charm. Reid is quite serious, but he also knows more about what's at stake and takes training Josie and her newly forming powers very seriously.  Both characters are very likeable. I'm not a fan of Josie's mom though. I question if she really loves her kids. She seems to be all about "the job". What's her deal? With that being said, I'm not sure which of the two organizations to trust either. The Resistance or the Consortium?  Right now, I don't trust either of them. Actually, I don't trust anyone else in the book either. I hope Reid and Josie don't either. It's not going to be an easy road for them regardless.

The pacing was a little slower than I was expecting, but it picked up towards the end. I love the premise of this story, and I'm pretty intrigued by Josie and her world. I'm excited to see what she has in store for us next.
