Richardson writes a likable main character in Marcie. She’s got the makings of being a strong-willed yet kind-hearted protagonist along with other abnormal (not quite paranormal) gifts. – TR Horne

Catalyst is an enlightening YA story that is not very focused on plot but more on characters, the issues at hand and what’s between the lines. It makes you think about what is being said, and about everything that’s left unsaid, and I think that’s part of what makes it so powerful. – The Artsy Reader

This was a very enjoyable book and a rare YA with a thoughtful message. I really liked the characters and the premise of a young girl and her friends using their extrasensory abilities to try to save our earth and its resources. – Maureen

Catalyst is a fun young adult book with a strong lead. I recommend it to readers who are invested in making the world a better place and to very patient sci-fi lovers, as the sci-fi part comes up later in the book. I enjoyed Catalyst and I really hope you do too! – Ari Drummer

I have to agree that there were some unlikely parts to this book, but overall it was really enjoyable and I would definitely recommend to any science fiction fans or anyone who is an advocate for climate change and are against fracking or any other harmful activities to the planet. – Ellie Read to Ramble

After reading the first few chapters, I was hooked.

The book talks a lot about the dangers of fracking and needing to move away from natural gas and oil for pure energy needs. I absolutely loved that aspect of the book! – Sarah Anderson-Pagal

THE FIELD is a One of a Kind Story

Amazing review of The Field from Chick-lit Café.

The Field by Tracy Richardson is an imaginative, engaging read about soccer, teenage angst, science and the supernatural. Readers will revel in this one-of-a-kind story.

Eric Horton is an exceptional soccer player and goalie. He has the ability to perceive where the ball is heading and is able to block it with uncanny accuracy. Eventually, he begins to question and perceive that this ability could be coming from a supernatural source. He is a good student and takes an AP class in Environmental Science, taught by a new teacher from France. Then, he is lucky and manages to go out with the French teacher’s beautiful daughter, Renee. The new physicist teacher convinces Eric and his friend Will to be test subjects for some scientific research he is conducting, and Eric soon discovers that he has the natural ability to communicate through telepathy and perform astral projections.

But, when things start to go wrong with his friends, Will and Rene, he begins to doubt himself. He must pull it together and use the gifts that he never knew he had. Eric has frightening dreams and forebodings that torment him, and they are beginning to come true. But, with the use of his recent source of energy and strength, he manages to take control, and perform supernatural feats.

The Field by Tracy Richardson is a fabulous book for teens and young adults. It is filled with intrigue, mystery and sweet romance. The author has a lot of scientific knowledge and it is apparent throughout this story. This a great read for those who think outside box, and desire to explore the idea of how everything in the universe is connected, and the possibility of the paranormal and supernatural, specifically from a scientific approach.

Tracy Richardson has created realistic and relatable characters that teens and young adults will connect with. Parents will get a clue from Eric’s character and mind, as to what is going on in a teenagers head. Richardson has a unique way with words, and had me feeling like I really knew and understood Eric. Her descriptive writing pulled me in from the very first chapter and kept me fully interested all the way through to the astounding conclusion. The plot is great, and the book is full of drama, mystery and romance.

The Field is thought-provoking, entertaining and completely different from anything I have ever read. Chick-lit Cafe recommends it to those who love science fiction, the paranormal and the mysterious universal connections between energy, humans and matter.
