When I first started reading this story I wasn't to interested but then after the first chapter it really pulled me in. I normally don't read such young stories or stories with such young characters but this one stood out. The storyline is very interesting and the plot is good, kind of obvious after a certain point though. The chracters are very realistic in terms of middle school students and very educational. It also shines light on some of the trouble certain youths face in life, like home situations and so on. The description is through the point of view of a middle school girl so it is easy to follow but also not all over the place. The tone is light and airy. Nothing to dramatic or thrilling. A good read for young teens.

I read the first book of Gifted, and there were so many interesting conflicts and problems in this story. A girl, Amanda Beeson, is the most popular girl in all of Meadow Brook Middle School. She wasn’t nice to anyone but herself, but no one knows why. Amanda is mean for a reason but her reason isn’t revealed until the middle of the book, then that is when a big problem starts. She starts to feel bad for a very shy girl named Tracey Devon. No one would even talk to Tracey not even her own family talks to her. Tracey was a very strange girl and seemed invisible. Tracey had a class everyday called the Gifted class. There were eight people in this class and they each have something special about them. Towards the end you would find out why this book is called Gifted. I recommend this book to 5th grade and higher. In my opinion I think kids 10 and older would really like this book. Please read this book, you won’t regret it if you do.

Does anyone remember the REPLICA series by Marilyn Kaye? It was quite popular with my middle school students about 10 years ago. (Geez, that's probably before most of you younger bloggers even knew how to read.) Anyway, Marilyn Kaye has a new series, and I'm predicting it will be just as popular with my students. OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND is book #1 in this new series. Once again there is something special about a group of young people. This time there are nine teens that are "gifted". These "gifts" include things like being invisible, reading minds, and seeing future events before they happen. A girl named Amanda stumbles across this unique collection of individuals when she discovers a "gift" of her own. Usually, Amanda is known as one of the mean girls around school. She struts around like a queen bee and verbally harasses her classmates. What people don't know is that her behavior is a cover-up. She learns as a little girl that if she feels sorry for someone, she becomes that person. She sort of inhabits their body so that she feels their pain, both mental and physical. This time she accidentally feels sorry for geeky Tracey, and the next thing she knows she is waking up in Tracey's bed in Tracey's body. It's all confusing for Amanda/Tracey until she finds herself in one of Tracey's classes. It is a special class Amanda never knew existed. After several days living as Tracey and attending this class, she is beginning to understand that the small group of students has powers they call "gifts", and they may be more important than she ever realized. Book #2 is titled BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, and book #3, HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW came out in October. These books are fast-paced and simply written, but just like Kaye's earlier series, they are addictive. I'm starting book #2 and will most definitely purchase any others that follow.

The novel Out of Sight , Out of Mind is a good book to read for middle school students. The main character is Amanda Beeson. She is the "Queen" of her middle school. When she was young she realized that she had a gift: her gift was she could change bodies with other people. Unfortunately for her, she could not just do it when she wanted to, she had to feel bad for that person for it to happen. When she feels sorry for one of the least liked girls in her middle school, Tracy Devon, she gets trapped in her body. While she is in her body all she can do is wait anxiously to get back to her own body. While she is in her body she stands up for the previously "no body" Tracy Devon. When Tracy gets her body back she looks much better and has a better life with her family. This is because Amanda taught her how to stand up for herself . Once Amanda gets back in her body she gets put in the gifted class with all the other gifted children including Tracy.
