“I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.”
When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.
The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.
But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.
A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.
This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.

Sight is a great start to a new young adult paranormal series. Savannah is a teen who has just woken up from a coma. She finds herself with the ability to see into the future, but she isn’t the only one changed. It seems that when Savannah woke from her coma, something woke up gifts in her and all her sisters…all five of them. Each gift gives them a different perspective of an event by enhanced senses. Lots of action, wonderful family bonds between the five sisters, and a genuinely sweet but fast paced story, Sight is a great prelude for more to come. An all around delightful read, Sight provides the perfect dose of magic, mystery and just plan enjoyable entertainment. I received this ARC copy of Sight from Diversion Books in exchange for a honest review.
Sight by Juliet Madison is the first book in The Delta Girls series. Savannah Delcarta is almost sixteen years old and has an aneurysm in her brain that needs to be removed. The surgery goes well, but Savannah is left in a coma for two months. Just before she wakes up, Savannah feels a strange sensation (like bubbles rising through her body) and then she gets a vision of a scene at the beach. Savannah awakens to find her four sisters surrounding her. Savannah is a triplet. Thankfully, they are not identical (their poor mother). There is Sasha (six minutes older than Savnnah) and Serena (two minutes older than Savannah). In addition they have two older sisters: Talia and Tamara (twins). A few months later they are moving into their new home at 3 Roach Place (what an awful name for a street). Their mother, Rose decided they needed a new start and moved them to a new town (near the beach). The girls are at the beach and a volleyball game is in progress. They all gasp at the same time. Just before Savannah woke up, this was what she saw. Turns out that all the girls had a similar sensation and vision (sort of). Each girl received a different sense (the five senses—see, taste, smell, hear, and touch). After some experimenting, the girls figure out how their new gifts work. There have been fires set around the town, but the police cannot figure out who is setting them. When the girls start seeing visions about the fires, they try to solve the case. Savannah gets her first boyfriend in the boy across the street. His name is Riley Pearce and he plays volleyball. He is being raised by his older brother since the death of his parents. Riley has a lot anger inside over the death of his father. He believes his father killed himself. Savannah, in addition to the visions, starts seeing ghosts. The first one is Riley’s father. Will Riley believe her or push or her away? Savannah can help Riley come to grips with his father’s death and move on with his life. Savannah will also get a chance to help her own family when she sees a familiar face (a ghost, of course). I give Sight 3 out of 5 stars. It is an interesting story, but I think the author could have done so much more with the girls abilities (maybe she will since this is the first book in the series). The book contains the requisite teenage romance with its ups, downs, and misunderstandings. I did not understand why the girls were not more curious to explore their abilities at the beginning or how their mother could be so oblivious. I think the series has possibilities and it will be interesting to see what the author does. I received a complimentary copy of Sight from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review** Savannah had four sisters. She had a brain aneurism and she opted to have surgery to fix it. She ended up in a coma for two months. When she opened her eyes, her sisters were all hold hands including hers. When they were home, each girl realized she had gained a psychic sense. Savannah was a good girl. She loved her family, including her dad who was missing, believed dead. She could be determined. She was kind and sweet. I loved her character and all of the characters in the book. It was a good plot and overall story. I highly recommend.
We have another uniquely told young adult entertainment gem here! Sight by Juliet Madison is a pleasure to read! Low on teen angst, high on family ties, positive attitudes and special sisterly bonds, the suspense and mystery of a serial arsonist is like the cherry on top of this fast-paced, paranormal read! When Savannah wakes from a two month coma, her world becomes “more.” We’ve all heard of people with traumatic injuries or prolonged comas coming back to us, changed, well Savannah now has the gift of “sight” and things are happening around her that are lie déjà vu moments. She isn’t the only one changed, each of her four sisters have gained another of the senses, and together, they can experience events as if they were there, which actually makes for some humorous moments. Seriously, would you like to be the sister with the gift of scent or smell on garbage day, or worse, after fajita night? (Just saying…). Together these five sisters become their own mental detective agency, and their very gifts may put them on the radar of evil. But where is the romance? Where are the twists and the revelations? They are all here and told in the spirit of good storytellers everywhere, thanks to the spin Juliet Madison places on her writing. Never weighed down with overly detailed scenes, but filled with action and the camaraderie of five sisters this gem is a quick and fascinating read that will leave you smiling, until you realize that book two is not sitting waiting for you! A definite summertime read with characters full of spirit, a competitive streak and the imaginations of youth! I received an ARC edition from Diversion Books in exchange for my honest review.
