Product Description

In Unfolding by Jonathan Friesen, it's a post-apocalyptic world in Oklahoma where 18-year-old Jonah Everett wishes he could get the girl next door, but the two are worlds apart. Jonah's physical condition is debilitating, with epileptic seizures that fill his life. Stormi is seemingly carefree but with a unique talent of foresight. When Stormi begs Jonah for help, he finds himself swept into a dark mystery that his small town has been keeping for years. And the answers that Stormi needs about her past could possibly destroy everything Jonah has ever known.

Publisher's Description

Jonah wishes he could get the girl, but he’s an outcast and she’s the most perfect girl he knows.

 

And their futures seemed destined to fork apart: Jonah’s physical condition is debilitating, and epileptic seizures fill his life with frustration. Whereas Stormi is seemingly carefree, and navigates life by sensing things before they happen. And her most recent premonition is urging her to leave town.

 

When Stormi begs Jonah for help, he finds himself swept into a dark mystery his small town has been keeping for years. And the answers Stormi needs about her own past could possibly destroy everything Jonah has ever known—including his growing relationship with Stormi herself.

 

Advance praise:

"Friesen's story unfolds with so much intrigue, swells with so much heart, I had to keep reading. And the writing? Beautiful!"

—Jay Asher, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Thirteen Reasons Why

"As someone with Tourette Syndrome, I grew up with a condition that others did not understand. It affected the way I was viewed and the way I viewed myself. I applaud Jonathan Friesen for telling a story about overcoming such a challenge in Unfolding. Hopefully, this will inspire others growing up with such conditions as well as help everyone else better understand  what is involved."

—Tim Howard, former US national team goaltender and current goalkeeper for the Colorado Rapids

    Wow. Just wow.

    This book kept me up very, very late. And I have a baby. Staying up all night reading is not a luxury I can afford to take. However, I could not stop reading Unfolding!

    Ok, so this is not a light, easy-breezy story. This is an intense, edge of your seat, flinching due to every small noise kind of story. But what do you expect with a small town riddled with secrets and a secret society and...I'd better not say that part. ;) The writing voice is different, yet so unique. And I absolutely adored Jonah! His perspective and voice would have been make or break it to the story. Jonah sounded like a real dude. ;) Also, speaking as someone who's had a lot of involvement with disable adults, I found his feelings regarding his disabilities to be realistic with what I've seen. However, I am by no means an expert.

    Fans of paranormal, mysterious, secret society YA and/or of Ted Dekker will love Unfolding by Jonathan Friesen. Seriously. You will want to buy this book immediately.

    What are you waiting for?

    Ive read a couple books by Jonathan Friesen in the past, but Unfolding (available everywhere from Blink and Zondervan January 31, 2017) just might be his best yet.

    In Gullary, Oklahoma, Jonah wishes he were whole. His life is filled with pain from a debilitating physical condition and seizures steal moments from his life. What Jonah wants more than anything is his best friend and neighbor, Stormi. But he doesnt believe hes worthy of her. Besides, Stormi has her own secrets and a seeming ability to sense the future.

    Yet when Stormi needs him, Jonahs there. As the two are swept into an adventure that reveals secrets about their small town and reveals things about Stormis past, their relationship begins to change. Stormi begins to change, to disappear from herself.

    Friesens story is both captivating and engaging. While slow in a few parts, the mystery and adventure quickly picked up and kept me engaged. Jonahs condition is written in a beautiful way, giving readers a glimpse into Jonahs pain and frustration at his limitations. A wonderfully written story for adults and teens alike that will sweep you away for a few hours.

    Disclosure statement: Thanks to BookLook Bloggers, I received a copy of Unfolding and the opportunity to honestly review it. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
