One Blog Tour

I'm delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for a book you may or may not have heard of called One by Leigh Ann Kopans.  I don't normally take part in blog tours for books I haven't read yet but the story sounded so awesome that I simply couldn't say no.  Just in case you haven't heard of One, here is the beautiful cover and synopsis:

When having two powers makes you a Super and having none makes you a Normal, having only one makes you a sad half-superpowered freak.

It makes you a One.

Sixteen-year-old Merrin Grey would love to be able to fly – too bad all she can do is hover. If she could just land an internship at the Biotech Hub, she might finally figure out how to fix herself. She busts her butt in AP Chem and salivates over the Hub’s research on the manifestation of superpowers, all in hopes of boosting her chances. Then she meets Elias VanDyne, another One, and all her carefully crafted plans fly out the window. Literally. When the two of them touch, their Ones combine to make them fly, and when they’re not soaring over the Nebraska cornfields, they’re busy falling for each other.

Merrin's mad chemistry skills land her a spot on the Hub's internship short list, but as she gets closer to the life she always wanted, she discovers that the Hub’s purpose is more sinister than it has always seemed. Now it’s up to her to decide if it's more important to fly solo, or to save everything - and everyone - she loves.

One sounds like a super hero story about star crossed lovers and basically has my name written all over it.  Sadly, I have not yet had a chance to read and review the book, mainly because I have been on holiday but I'm going to try and get to it as soon as possible.  In the mean time, here's a little bit of information about the author:

Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.

Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream.

One was published on 11th June, 2013 and the sequel entitled Two will be published on 8th October, 2013.
