This YA novel reminded me a bit of the Marvel ‘X-Men’ series in that it’s about a group of ‘gifted’ teens who are sent to a special school to help them learn to hone their powers. The main character, Laura, suffers from terrible migraine headaches and during one of these episodes she sees a horrific vision which then comes to pass. Apparently she can predict the future and so she is sent to the school so that she can learn to control her visions and potentially avert disasters from happening. There are lots of interesting characters at the school, and of course, Laura and her friends begin to suspect that everything is not above board. Without giving it away, danger and intrigue ensue. There is also a healthy injection of sexuality in that Laura and one of the orderlies are attracted to one another, culminating in a relationship. This aspect of the book may not sit well with some, but I think most teen girls will enjoy this book. It’s part of a series, too, which is always popular with teens.

Good read!

A fast-paced story sbout a group of teenagers with extraordinary skills, this book will keep you entertained til the final paragraph. There's a few spelling and grammer issues, but still a goid story. I'll be reading more by this author.

    Interesting novel

    Intriguing novel with interesting plot. This appears to be a series, and I will probably buy it. The majority of characters appear to be teen/ early twenties but this is a novel that has some sensual scenes hat is not appropriate for pre- teens or some teens.

    I do wish a better job proofreading had been done. Too much reliance on spell checking perhaps. The story itself is really interesting and I don't think this author should have trouble finding a publisher! The book is really interesting in the abilities it shows and the way the people with those abilities handle themselves. No real superiority over others; just helpfulness. Thanks for a great read.
