    Brought back the thrill and anguish of being fourteen . . .

    Enjoyed this book and totally got caught up the in the big question of Delia's seemingly psychic powers. But more than that, it's about a freshman starting high school and navigating the complex social hierarchy there. It's also about family and friendships and maintaining relationships while adolescence is making you change in front of everyone's eyes. I think it really captures the tension between desperately wanting to belong and wanting to stand out and be an individual that isn't just a high school thing.

    Best Bits: I really liked how this one ended. It was a very understated, non-cliffhanger ending (so refreshing!). Even if this is the start to a series, I'm just so grateful that it didn't feel like 'Book 1 in the ______ series.' How often does that happen these day? It says quite a bit about Perez's style that after everything had basically wrapped itself up I was still interested how Delia is dealing with her abilities. I also liked that the mystery in the book was creepy without being too dramatic. I will say that the book focused more on friendships than it did on supernatural powers, but I didn't mind. It showed how hard it was for Delia when there was an adjustment to the hierarchy of the popular girls in school. Plus, it also has a great depiction about how jealousy and feelings of worthlessness can lead to bad friendships. It just takes Delia some time to figure out who her friends are, and what she really wants from them.

    Nit Picks: The reader doesn't get a lot of background on Delia's powers. I suppose that's realistic, but there were a couple of things that weren't explained enough for me to be fully satisfied. The book also uses the word "retarded." It's only used once, but it's a word that I really detest. So, that pulled me directly out of the story.

    Page turner

    The high school struggle of trying to "fit in" yet realize one's own identity is beautifully portrayed in this debut YA novel. The story is fluid and captivating, drawing the reader into Delia's world from the start, making the book hard to put down. (Just one more chapter and I'll go to bed, eat dinner, answer my pleading child's calls... lol) All in all a great read for both YA and adults alike. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

    I agree with donnajl's review -- this book really gets what it's

    I agree with donnajl's review -- this book really gets what it's like to figure out who you are in high school. What I love is that Elena Perez's approach to this coming-of-age story is so originally and compellingly told. Delia is such a relate-able narrator, and so interesting for how she views the world. I'm really impressed by this debut.
