My review of Rise of Alpha by Lorenz Font

Brian Morrison seems to be living a life of somewhat misery. He has two close friends - Mark Stanton and Darryl Martin but he lives with Tourette's Syndrome which leaves him with uncontrollable tics and swearing in the middle of class.

Then on a bit of a dare from his friends, the three boys decide to visit the local psychic, Madame Elizabeth for a Tarot Reading and he rushes out - unsure of what his future is. But when he begins to have dreams that come true Brian knows he needs help.

When the beautiful Shannon McKesson is partnered up with Brian in several classes it doesn't seem to be a coincidence and it looks like they will be spending a lot more time together when it looks like Shannon's life is in danger. Yet the danger may be different than any high school bully that he has ever come across before. Brian must rely on his old friends and his new ones to protect Shannon and lead him to a life he wasn't expecting.

I really enjoyed this book and found it quite different than others I have read lately. Right from the beginning I loved Brian as he was bullied for something that he had no control over and you wanted him to succeed. Mark and Darryl were such great loyal friends that never backed down from what they were up against.

Shannon was great and never backed down from what she believed in, even if it was the "unpopular" thing to do. She was definitely not as weak as you think she is at the beginning of the book.

Can't wait for the next book in the series!
