Blog Tour: Owlet by Emma Michaels

Today, as part of the Owlet blog tour, I have the exclusive next part of the read along.

So without a further ado...
“I have to get back soon,” Iris said, remembering that she had only told Diana she was going for a walk. By now she had been gone long enough to make Diana worry again or even come searching like the day before.

“Please. I can’t explain everything...just follow me.” Iris met his eyes and started to worry. Staying where she was, she watched him. Her feelings were so strong and so new that she really didn’t trust herself with him yet—just as she didn’t trust the voice speaking inside her.

“I really should get back,” she argued, but she still followed him, not wanting to lose track of where he was going and end their conversation on a bad note. Then, she saw the gazebo. They walked up the steps and stood at its center.

“Will you at least sit with me? I will help you find your way back afterwards. Please? I don’t want you to leave and...”


“Forget me, I told you yesterday.”

“I haven’t forgotten you so far. Why do I matter so much to you?”

“This would be so much easier to explain to you if you remembered before...”

“Then help me remember. Or, at the very least, tell me if I look like she did. I always wished I could look like my mother—have something from her. I saw a drawing and the ferry man said something about it but...I am still not sure.”
About the Book:
Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.

Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.
About the Author:
Emma Michaels is the author of the ‘A Sense of Truth’ and ‘Society of Feathers’ series. Her goal with her latest YA novel 'Owlet' is to give others what she did not have growing up; a strong female protagonist with asthma.

Her day jobs include being a cover artist, marketing consultant and silk screen designer.

As the founder of The Writers Voice blog ( she loves to connect authors and readers. As a book blogger turned author, she was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, until she moved at eighteen to Washington State. Suddenly, the world was a new place filled with tall green trees that reached further for the sky with every moment, making her want to do the same. Ever since, she has tried to make her life something new and different from what it was before, pursuing her future career, setting high goals and reaching for them. With the support of her fiancé, Chihuahua, and her amazing blog followers and fellow bloggers, she wants to prove to the world that anything is possible and help inspire fellow literary lovers to reach for their dreams.
