The Girl Who Saw Clouds
A Novel by Judith A. Barrett
The Girl Who Saw Clouds is a Young Adult novel. It’s about a girl. Who saw clouds.
Aimee Louise, who lives on a farm with her grandfather, is a bright, quirky 14-year-old with autism. She does not understand facial expressions. The “clouds” she sees instead of faces reveal a person’s true feelings and intentions – happy, calm, angry, or even dangerous. Aimee Louise’s ability to recognize danger saves her and her extended family more than once. However, her knack for avoiding dicey situations does not go unnoticed.
After an explosion at a substation plunges the surrounding counties into darkness, Aimee Louise and the local Sheriff predict there will be a much wider-spread outage. Their warnings are heeded by some, but ignored by most.
The second outage, a cyber-attack, takes down the grid across the US. The Sheriff, his family, and others join the farm family. Hard work and corny jokes keep the family going.
Those who are responsible for the outages are determined to find the missing, irrefutable evidence of their ultimate plans. Aimee Louise’s gift of clouds is key to thwarting those who are trying to retrieve that evidence at any cost.
