Theme Thursday (Location)

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event, hosted by, that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)

  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading

  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post

  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)

Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week's theme is:

LOCATION (reference to the location where the story is happening)

Here is mine:

Rippler (The Ripple Series, #1)
"There were red dots concentrated in various countries, the heaviest concentration of dots in locations that I knew recreated a map I'd looked at before. There were lots of dots immediately north of where Las Abuelitas snuggled into the base of the Sierra." (Page 105)
Rippler by Cidney Swanson

Synopsis (from

Samantha Ruiz has a freak gene that makes her turn invisible, or ripple. She can't control it, and it's getting word. 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 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.
