“Chasing Fate” by Maria Miller, Reviewed by Jackie Anton

Copyright 2012

Available on Amazon in paperback or on Kindle

Chasing fate is the story of a high school senior in jeopardy of not graduating. Her studies, grades, and outlook on life plummet as her dysfunctional family’s problems escalate.

Kate is given a make up assignment to interview a person of interest. A successful interview will allow her to graduate. Her teacher has one of her father’s business associates in mind. They are all successful and respected members of the community. Instead, she chooses to interview the homeless man, Max, who lives in the park. That’s where the adventure begins.

The author did a good job of setting up the primary characters and their adventures in this Young Adult novel. Some of the secondary characters needed some fleshing out as to motivation.

This review was done from the Kindle edition. This version has some distracting formatting issues. Over all the story is very interesting and keeps the page turning. However, the ending lacks the feel and detail prevalent in the early part of the book. Still, Chasing Fate is an enjoyable read.
