Gift by Andrea J. Buchanan
Gift by Andrea J. Buchanan was an unexpected pleasant read. From the synopsis, a girl who can manipulate electric waves sounded good so I gave it a go. The plot has it all YA, paranormal, a hint of romance, and of course, a twist. This book kept me on my toes, with the dreams and hint of mystery. I think it is geared toward a younger audience, but yet still a good read. I thought it could do without the illustrations, they were kind of cheesy. Overall 3 out of 5 stars.
Daisy has an electrifying secret that could save her life—or kill her

But there’s a good reason for all that: Daisy has a secret, unpredictable power—one only her best friend, Danielle, knows about. Despite her “gift” (or is it a curse?), Daisy’s doing a good job of fitting in, and a gorgeous senior named Kevin even seems interested in her! But when Daisy tries to help Vivi, a mysterious classmate in a crisis, she soon discovers that her new friend has a secret of her own. Now Daisy and her friends must deal with chilling dreams and messages from the beyond. Can Daisy channel the power she’s always tried to hide, before it’s too late?
