KLIATTLucy 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 1). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Penguin, Speak, 296p., Ages 12to 18.
