KLIATTHigh school student Sabine Rose has moved to live with her grandmother since her psychic gifts got her expelled from her last school. Although she is trying to start over as an ordinary teen, her psychic guide, Opal, is still inside her head and dreams, showing her increasingly painful visions of a girl with a dragonfly tattoo. Because of her involvement with this girl, Sabine is accused of a crime she didn't commit and must find a way to not only clear her name but also to avert a looming disaster. Sabine, with Opal's help, gets to the girl before her suicide attempt is fatal. And Sabine begins to explore and enjoy her psychic gifts in a new way. The final chapter sets up the sequel, Last Dance. Tailor-made for those teens who enjoy Annette Curtis Klause (Blood and Chocolate) and Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (Demon in My View and In the Forest of the Night), as well as Lois Duncan. I may even recommend this to my Lurlene McDaniel fans as a slight change of pace. The black-into-lavender cover with its stylized dragonfly will draw attention as well. Well-packaged light chills should make this a hit with teen girls. (The Seer, Volume One). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2004, Llewellyn, 269p., Ages 12 to 18.
