KLIATT
Lucy thought her life couldn't get worse after her mother died—but she was wrong. Miserable at the home of her distant aunt and hostile cousin, she goes out walking one night and stumbles into an old graveyard, where a dying girl passes on a strange and unwelcome power. Now Lucy has strange visions and horrible dreams, and a distinct feeling of being stalked by an unseen person, or thing. Nobody believes her—except a young man at school with a mysterious and slightly sinister past. Can Lucy believe in her own perceptions, and can she decode their meaning before it's too late? It Begins, the first book in the four-part Unseen series, grabs the reader from the beginning and never lets go. The atmosphere of foreboding is wonderfully done, and there's plenty of mystery to make the reader hungry for more. In Rest in Peace, the second book in the series, Lucy is plagued by dreams and visions and by a mysterious stalker. She has trouble getting over the death of her friend and the disappearance of her hostile cousin Angela. She has nowhere to turn as the mystery deepens and the terror worsens. Who can she trust? Her friend Dakota wants to believe her, and handsome young priest Matt wants to help her, but Lucy is on her own. She must learn to understand her new powers and discover the meaning of her dreams before her unseen pursuer claims her—forever! The second book in this series is even better than the first, as the plot thickens and the red herrings fly. Bound to be a hit with the vampire set, this series is highly recommended. (The Unseen, Part 2). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Penguin, Speak, 304p., Ages 12to 18.

Gr 10 Up-Lucy is sure that someone is following her when she stumbles across a bruised and bloodied girl who passes on her psychic abilities just before dying. Now the teen is tormented by visions indicating that the killer is stalking her. Her only confidant is Byron, the murdered girl's handsome, brooding brother. At the end of part one, however, the two are involved in a car accident that leaves Byron dead and Lucy found clinging to life by her stalker. In the second installment, Lucy escapes after three unconscious days of captivity, but now must deal with the loss of Byron and an even stronger feeling of being haunted by someone, or something. So far, there are hints at a tortured, ancient soul with a vampirelike appetite and an ability to take on any physical form that he desires. While the author effortlessly builds suspense, the real mystery is why this is planned as a four-book series. Too much of the plot consists of Lucy braving one harrowing experience after another, often in a predictable sequence. Flat characters plague the books, with a new friend and romantic interest to replace the old ones when they die. While there's nothing new here, these books will likely appeal to Cusick's devoted fan base.-Emily Rodriguez, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

I read this book and it was very scary and it was the best written book i have read in a very long time. It is as good as R.L. Stine book call Dangerous girls. I had a very good time reading this book. I am looking foward to reading the last two books.
