"Finding Esta", the first in "The Supes Series" by Shah Wharton, is what can be called the coming of age story of a woman (Luna) who struggles to define who she is. The world that she knows crumbles around her as she struggles in this journey. How far would you go to solve the mystery of a baby that was stolen from your family? Would you be willing to go into an underground world that will end up making you question everything, including what am I?
Shah Wharton has created a cast of characters that will draw you in. Luna is someone I can find myself drawn to on many levels. She is a budding journalist and that is something that I also strive to be. Luna goes on a very personal journey to find Esta, a baby that was taken from a family, and I think had it been me I would do the same thing. The writing in "Finding Esta" is really good with a flow to the story that really works. The downfall and everything that happens with Luna as things crumble do not just happen in one page or two, it is gradual and I like that. There were some twists that I did not see coming but enjoyed them. I can say I was sad when this book ended and I wanted to stay with Luna and her story longer. I cannot wait for the next one to come out. If you enjoy a deep adventure with characters who are not perfect, you will enjoy Shah Wharton's "Finding Esta". Be ready for things you will not expect.
