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 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…

Tonya Shares Josie's Playlist:
Thank you so much for having me on your blog today! Today, I’m going to talk about music, which plays a big part in my writing process. I often make many playlists while I’m writing/revising/editing a book. Some songs are very much Josie, while others are Reid, and since ANOMALY is written in dual points-of-view, I have playlists for the book in general, but also from each character POV.
This playlist is comprised of songs, lyrics, and tones that would convey the events and emotions of ANOMALY from Josie’s perspective. Her musical tastes are more varied than Reid’s. She enjoys pop, rock, alt rock, punk – everything – whereas Reid tends to stick to alt rock. If you’ve read the book, let me know what songs you’d add to Josie’s playlist!
Our thanks to the delightful Tonya Kuper and to YA Bound Book Tours for organizing this blog tour!
