Jacie and her quite unusual family are special in the sense that they each have a supernatural ability. Jacie and her father are both telepaths and have telekinesis; Jacie’ mother figure and live-in personal trainer, Allison, is super strong and fast; and her godfather John has the power of persuasion. Jacie may seem like a unique girl, and she is, but she is also just like any other teenager…especially when it comes to her BFF Matt, who she has developed deep feelings for. Jacie not only worries about her evolving relationship with Matt, but also what he’ll think when he finds out about the things she can do. However, these are the least of her worries. After a stranger gives Jacie a very obscure message, she befriends a girl (Haylee) who may be more than she appears to be. With the help of Jacie and her family, Haylee learns things about herself that are frightening.
This book was very intriguing, suspenseful, and even funny at times…it was great! The plot was rather interesting and the character development was insane…especially in the case of Haylee.
I really liked all of the characters, well, except for the ones that weren’t meant to be liked (the monsters Haylee ran into, for example). The descriptions were fantastic, especially when referring to the supernatural abilities each member of the families possessed, which by the way I thought were all awesome! Also, much to my surprise, I actually enjoyed the various POV’s.
There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like…the story held my attention all the way through and I found it very interesting. Plus, the title of the book is very clever! I am really looking forward to reading book two!
