Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She's a Telepath--someone who hears the thoughts of everyone around her. It's a talent she's never known how to explain. 

Everything changes the day she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who appears out of nowhere and also reads minds. She discovers there's a place she does belong, and that staying with her family will place her in grave danger. In the blink of an eye, Sophie is forced to leave behind everything and start a new life in a place that is vastly different from anything she has ever known. 

Sophie has new rules to learn and new skills to master, and not everyone is thrilled that she has come “home.” There are secrets buried deep in Sophie's memory—secrets about who she really is and why she was hidden among humans—that other people desperately want. Would even kill for. 
I've been reading Shannon Messenger's blog for a long time now, so I'm very curious about her debut! It sounds like it'll be such a great story - and how awesome is that cover?

What are you waiting on?

  11. I'm a long-time reader of Shannon's blog, too, so it's completely cool to see her move from writer to author! Plus, this books sounds adorable.

  12. I'm trying to break myself out of the habit of ignoring MG books (I just recently read and loved The Star Shard by Frederic S. Durbin), so I think I might try my luck with this one at some point.


  13. I love MG books as I have a 12 yr old that reads a lot. I let him read any of my YA books he has an interest in and that are appropriate for him. Thankfully I read a lot of "boy" books. This one looks great! I can't wait to read your review of it. You don't see a lot of paranormal in MG.
