9780064472654: Gifted Touch (Fingerprints, Book 1)

Sometimes, when I touch things, words fill my head. Words that feel like thoughts--thoughts that are inside of me...but not mine.

I used to think I was crazy. Used to.

I'm starting to wonder if there's a reason for all the voices that tangle together in my mind. And if I'm right, then it's not my sanity I'm worried about--it's my life.

About the Author:

Melinda Metz is the author of the ongoing young adult book series Roswell High, which is the basis of the WB television series Roswell. Melinda has also written books for several book series, including The New Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley, Ghosts of Fear Street, and Goosebumps Presents. She lives in Manhattan with a pen-eating dog names Dodger.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-This engaging mystery conveys themes of self-discovery and self-acceptance within a classic whodunit framework. Rae Voight can read the minds of others by touching their fingerprints. Throughout the book, readers encounter jagged, boldface words invading her normal thoughts. These interruptions are at first disorienting because they come without explanation, but readers will soon empathize with Rae because they are just as jarring to her. As these foreign thoughts increase, the teen has a breakdown and is hospitalized. Returning home, she finds it difficult to go back to her suburban private-school lifestyle. These troubles are compounded by an attempt on her life. As the hunt for the would-be killer ensues, she develops several relationships and is able to accept her abilities. The true gifted touch, however, is possessed by Metz, who has an uncanny ability to capture the rhythm and inherent self-consciousness of teenage thought. A good title for fans of Metz's "Roswell High" series (Pulse).-Louie Lahana, New York City Public SchoolsMOORE, Ishbel. Dolina's Decision. 128p. (Dolina Series). CIP. Roussan, dist. by Orca. 2001. pap. $6.95. ISBN 1-896184-74-X. LC C00-900203-0. Gr 7-10-In this third book in the series, Dolina comes to terms with finally meeting her father and with her crush on Spencer, the ruggedly handsome farm boy with whom she happens to be sharing a house. She is impulsive, immature, a bit on the wild side, and slightly annoying. Her feelings for Spencer cause her to act unreasonably, and her insistent search for her father becomes obsessive. The story is fast paced and Dolina is interesting, but the novel does not stand alone. Teens who loved Dolina May (1997) and Dolina's Grad (1998, both Roussan) will want to know the young woman's decision, but others will find the book unsatisfying.
