Sight: The Delta Girls - Book One Jul 14, 2015
I sometimes like reading young adult books as they sometimes surprise me very much and be more like a cleaner version of an Adult novel. This book is very good, with an interesting and unique story-line/twist, likable characters and a good mystery to go along with the speculative fiction bent.
However this book is exactly as advertised –a YA novel and I mean for younger audiences –perhaps in the 12 to 16 year old range.
When Savannah one of five sisters awakes from a comma, it seems that the sister’s reality shifts one step to the right. Now they have visions (for lack of a better word) and each sister ‘sees’ things (future things/ past things) with a different sense. Five senses, five sisters. One sees things visually, one via smell, touch, taste and sound. This makes for a very interesting new life for these teens.
Along with this dilemma, normal teen angst abounds what with the girls moving to a new town and going to a new school…getting your new boyfriend to believe you really aren’t a nut-case and that you really can see his dead father.
There is also a mystery involving arson to add some spice to this story.
All in all a good read for any age.
