Rising Calm Book Tour AND Giveaway AND Review!

I feel like such a procrastinator.

The Book File's very first blog tour is tomorrow, and I haven't posted anything. At all.

Oooo-kay. So all day tomorrow , we're hosting a blog tour, on the book Rising Calm, by Haley Fisher. It's about a girl, named Cara, and her very *coughhotcough* mysterious friends, with certain habits and peculiarities. Read more to find out about the review, guest post, book giveaway, and interview--

On Cara Weaver’s first day at her new high school—merely the next in a long line of new schools—she meets two senior boys: James Sable and Crispin Calaway. They’re new too; they’ve been at the school just longer than she has, and they’ve never made an effort to reach out to anyone. Until she comes. When her friends find out, they’re awed. But Cara can't shake the feeling that there’s more to James and Crispin than the two are telling.
As the days go on, everything at her new home seems to be going better than it has in any of the previous cities she’s lived in. She loves her friends, gets a job at a bookstore, and even starts to spend more time with Crispin and James. She’s happy. But all that begins to change when she comes to realize that the two boys she’s becoming close to are hiding something. It’s then that she knows her unexplainable wariness of them has been justified all along. But she keeps it a secret.
Days later, when a stranger accosts her outside a small shopping center, Crispin and James arrive just in time to help her. But they seem know the attacker. And instead of running him off, Crispin and James take Cara away, for her own protection.
With little explanation, Cara is told that she’s important and that she can’t go home until the boys have sorted some things out. In the meantime, Cara’s world is being turned upside down as she finds out that there is more to her life than she possibly imagined.
Okay. Review time. 

I'll give it a 4/5, which is what I gave it on Goodreads. Nice plot, very constructed. The ending shocked me somewhat, but...c'est la vie. I specifically loved Fisher's characters, who were not only realistic, but also original. Her whole theme and general idea for the story and where it was headed was very unique.
  Sophie was one of my favorite characters. :) She was so innocent, and so sweet, and so...cute! Soph wasn't a total airhead, either. And she likes Pokemon!

  I docked one point off for the slowness at the beginning. I had to pick it up, then put it back down, then back up again. Maybe it's just me, and my sometimes apparent lack of concentration and obvious procrastination, but...still. Slow start, good read.

Rising Calm Author Haley Fisher
I'm Haley Fisher, a college student in Kansas, and I've just signed a contract with a company called Silver Tongue Press to publish my first book!

For as long as I can remember I've been an avid reader and an aspiring writer, but the step toward actually getting a book published is an enormous one for me. This is a big deal. And, as I've been told, the next step to being successful is getting the word out that my book exists.

So, though it's not in print yet—it's coming out February 14th—I'd love for people to keep an eye out for Rising Calm. It'll be the first in a series of books about a young girl who finds out her life and her fate are far bigger than she ever realized. At the risk of giving too much away, the most I can tell you for now is that there is magic, prophecy, new worlds, and a cast of characters who I love to write. 



You can buy a copy of Rising Calm here:

See you tomorrow, bright and early as I can get up!
