Title: Rippler

Author: Cidney Swanson

Series: Ripple #1

Summary via Goodreads: Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can’t control it, and it’s getting worse. Afraid of becoming a lab-rat, Sam keeps her ability secret, until fellow runner Will Baker sees her vanish into thin air. Will promises secrecy and help, and Sam begins to fall in love.

Together, the two discover there are worse things than being a scientific curiosity. Someone’s been killing people who possess Sam’s gene. A mysterious man from France sends letters that offer hope for safety, but also reveal a sinister connection with Nazi experiments.

The more time Sam spends with Will, the less she can imagine life without him. When Sam uncovers secrets from her past, she must choose between keeping Will in her life or keeping Will safe.


The screaming was the first clue that I’d turned invisible again.


“You need to recognize there are consequences for every action you take, Will.”

“Maybe I’m sick and tired of us not taking action,” Will said.

“Do you want people to find you? Who should we tell first? Do you want the experimental physicists to know? The CIA? How about the mystery assassins who took out Pfeffer? Our dad maybe? There’s an idea-Dad could just sell you off to the highest bidder.


Got this as a free Kindle book and I’ve heard mostly good thongs about it and the whole series. It sounds like a really interesting book and I’ll definitely be starting it soon.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice weekend.
