After moving to Mexico with her parents, Winter Gutan had been hoping the local alternative medicine doctor would cure her mother’s illness. When her mother does not survive his controversial treatments, Winter’s life spirals in despair. Her father, a software engineer, insists his computer program, Fractalistic, will enable them to communicate with her mother’s spirit. But as his sanity begins to slip, Winter confides in her friend Rafa, a computer wizard, who tells her he’s found information about using fractal technology to treat false memories—nothing paranormal about it, leaving Winter confused and without hope. Will she lose her mother forever?

Suspecting her dad is hiding a deep secret, Winter runs Fractalistic behind his back, unveiling a sea of computer-generated imagery swirling on the screen. Her mother appears to her…begging for help! But is this all just Winter’s imagination?

Fractalistic may enable Winter to communicate with her deceased mother, but it might also unleash more mysterious memories buried within Winter’s mind. To figure it all out, Winter must hack into her father’s system to uncover a horrifying truth...or remain in the dark forever.

REVIEW.

Since reading Bacon Pie, which Gerardo Delgadillo wrote with Candace Robinson, I’ve been eager to read more of the author’s work. Bacon Pie was such a fun read, the two authors worked together so well, and I wanted to see what the author was capable alone. Although I have Summerlypse on my Kindle, Fractalistic appealed to me more. It seemed to have a science-fiction air surrounding it, and I have a big weakness for science-fiction.

I want to make it known this is not a science-fiction read. It sounds like it could be, but it’s very much a young adult contemporary. It wasn’t quite what I was looking for due to this, but it was a story that had me turning the pages to see how everything came together.

At first, I was a bit worried about this one. The story felt disjointed, it seemed to be bouncing around a lot, and I was worried about what this meant. It turns out, it’s a vital part of the story. In fact, it’s a choice made in the style of storytelling. When I realised this, I became more intrigued.

Within Fractalistic, we have what you expect from a young adult contemporary. There is the drama and angst, the romance and friendship, and the story dealing with a very real topic. I’m extremely picky about my young adult contemporary reads and found this one wasn’t quite to my taste. Things were dealt with a bit too quick and easy for my liking, it didn’t quite have the depth I like, but it kept me turning the pages. Thus, I can clearly see how this would appeal to many readers of the genre. It ticks all the boxes for lovers of the genre, and it’s an easy to read book that keeps you hooked.

Although Fractalistic wasn’t what I’d expected, it was a fun quick read.
