You love a good mystery. The first one is: which book do you start with?
Mia’s daughter is missing, stolen from her own front yard. Though Fortune is having a grand adventure, Mia is watching her whole life fall apart.
When Fortune disappears, the police converge on their home. They are supposed to be helping, but they are holding her back from finding her daughter. When the FBI shows up, it seems there are even more secrets she didn’t know. Her husband has been cheating on her in more ways than one. And Fortune’s doctor has far more information about Mia’s daughter than she should. More than maybe is legal. Will there be a home for Fortune to come back to?
Fortune is a two book set that tells the same story from two perspectives by a USA Today bestselling author. Learn more about the secrets eight-year-old Fortune is hiding. Find out why was Fortune taken. . .
FORTUNE'S two books follow the same timeline, so you can read either one first. We call it an "E-quel." If you can’t decide which book to start with, let our randomizer pick for you! www.ReadAJS.com/Fortune/
AJ’s concept of an “E-qual”, not a prequel or a sequel, pays off in the two books of Fortune. In the grey version she gets to display her sensitivity toward the characters on one side of an incident. In the red version, which is the ultimate of intensity, AJ gets to illustrate the feeling a mother on the other side of the same incident.
AJ also points out that incidents of this kind, where often are treated alone, are added to the normal pressures and problems of the day.
The descriptions remind me of my own mother taking to task a principal of an elementary school for paddling me for something I had allegedly done at school, and a teacher that gave me an “F” on a paper after psychoanalyzing its content. I had chosen to write an immoral story and used different handwriting styles to indicate different moods in the story. It must have taken 5 times the amount of time than the time to whip out the replacement good feeling moral story that my mother convinced the teacher to accept.
But this is about AJ’s book! Recommendation - Read the grey version first.
And thanks AJ for another couple of sleep deprived nights.
