This book is awesome!!!! The story starts with the main character Lindsay Scott being kidnapped by two young boys trying to help her. But they don't know her biggest problem, also a secret. If she left her house, she heard EVERYTHING ANYONE was saying about her ANYWHERE...

    OMG!!!!

    I absolutely loved the book im hoping the main character will end up being in a romance but that is not highly possible.
    Of course im glad she found her mom and grandpa.
    Sad that her dad had to die.
    Sweet that the boys tried to 'rescue' her from her dad
    Stupid that the boys figured out that her dad was dead and she really did'nt need saving
    Amazing how there are people out in the world just like her!
    Who knows?
    Maybe the gift is real!
    I sure would want it. I could be all like I heard you talking about me you insecure person.
    Leave me alone and do something else but critisize people.
    So yeah, very good book :)

    This is a good book but I'm still sort of confused about it all. I never really got a clean picture.
