Melanie is less than happy when her teacher asks her to help Imogen, the new girl in their class, to settle in. Mel would rather have her nose in a book than in a conversation. But as she gets to know Imogen, Mel realizes that there's something different about her. Imogen has a way of knowing what's going to happen in a book before she's even read it. And not only does she know it, she seems to actually feel it, as if it's happening to her. Unlike Imogen and her family, Mel can see that this power is more of a curse.

I first read this book when I was probably about 10 years old. I had never been one of those people that enjoyed reading before this book. I actually hated reading but when I read this book I realized it was a matter of what books you read, and that not all of them are bad. As a matter of fact, a lot of books are great! This book really kept be interested and I enjoyed almost every part of it. The week that I read this book my teacher had told me that we all had to have in reviews/summaries for 20 books we had read that month, by the end of the week. The problem was, I hadn't read ANY books yet, I probably hadn't read any that year! But I was a smart kid and managed to pack 20 books into one week starting with this one, which really got me into the whole reading thing. Now I am constantly reading something, whether it's a great novel, the newspaper, or just instructions. haha. I definetely recomend this to anyone who is just starting to get into reading, or would like to actually enjoy reading for once, and also to anyone that is looking for a fun easy read. Good book for any age, but especially for pre-teens, and older kids. (ages 9-13). I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did.
I don't really like the other Anne Fine books, but I couldn't put this one down! I reccomend it to anybody, and it is the perfect book for a rainy day, because it's short and easy to read!
I think this book was intresting, but I've read better. It was really short and easy for me to read! I think, that it was a great story but Anne Fine could have written it better. Really i think i'd give it 3 1/2 stars! ( =
This book is about an avid book reader who has to accompany the new girl. The newkid is really weird because she can touch a book and she feels what is going on inside the book. If you like weird books, then this one is right for you!
