Somewhere in the Middle is a story about Everly Sayers, a 17-year-old girl who has given up on high school boys and is focusing on her friends and family. That is, until Roone Thorsen arrives in school and flips her world upside down.

Neither Roone nor Everly want to be in a relationship but are constantly being asked out. To counteract this, they decide to be in a fake relationship and convince everybody they are a couple. But as Roone and Everly grow closer, they become more and more invested in their relationship.

Everly knows that something is different about Roone, and slowly she uncovers the truth about who he is and where he comes from. Read Somewhere in the Middle for an endearing love story with a paranormal twist.


I thoroughly enjoyed reading Somewhere in the Middle by Linda Palmer. This novel captured my attention from the very beginning and held my interest until the very end. The plot moved along at a nice pace, making me want to keep reading at each chapter break.

I found the storyline interesting and really enjoyed the science fiction elements. I also loved the complex and intriguing characters. The author did a great job of developing the character of Everly and steered clear of typical teenage girl stereotypes. Even though she was in a relationship, Everly was portrayed as independent and strong, something I feel is rare for female characters in love stories.

I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone looking for the perfect mix between a love story and science fiction.

Explain your content rating: 

The novel contains some explicit language, as well as a few intimate scenes between the two main characters that may be too mature for younger audiences. It also has a few violent fight scenes.
