Description

Katie Welker is used to being alone. She would rather read a book than deal with other people. Other people don't have silver eyes. Other people can't make things happen just by thinking about them!

But these special powers make Katie unusual, and it's hard to make friends when you're unusual. Katie knows that she's different but she's never done anything to hurt anyone so why is everyone afraid of her? Maybe there are other kids out there who have the same silver eyes . . . and the same talents . . . and maybe they'll be willing to help her.

    Book worm nerds with telekinesis!

    This had a flip side of Village of the Damned run up, with a sudden, now I have friends ending. As I really didn't like VotD and the environments Katie endures are so hostile, I wasn't really enjoying this much, then it ended. If I'd read a review or so I would have known it wasn't an adult novel nor quite what is now going as YA - high body count ending in cuddles - so I was reading it as an adult novel about a young girl, which it pretty much is until the last couple of chapters.

    This was a gift from my mother and immediately it was the cover I enjoyed. This story is about a girl who grows up feeling separated from people and not understanding why. Because of this, she is very reserved, quiet and perceived as withdrawn. Despite Katie feeling differently about herself, she does not put up too much of an argument. Her character is very thoughtful and she is trying to find connection despite her resentments. Her eyes are mistaken for a blue grey at first, but as you get closer, they are actually silver.As the story progresses, she has an ability, a power of telepathy. When she moves with her mother and her mother's outlandish, but good natured boyfriend, she begins to meet people around her and form relationships. She finds that she really cares for others despite knowing how different she is.It's not long until she meets a boy with silver eyes too and the story really takes off. More action at this point and an exciting, uplifting finish that suggests a feeling of belonging.A good young adult reader that combines fantasy with realism.

    This was my absolute favorite book in 6th grade and I still enjoy it today. Back then I liked the fact that Katie was telekinetic. Now I think her search to finding other kids like herself is the best part of the story.

    The story of a pre-teen girl with telekenetic powers who tries to find others like herself. A favorite among my junior high readers.
  • (3/5)
    This story will resonate with children and teens who long to be special, but also to be understood. Katie doesn't understand why people can't accept her with her unusual intelligence and ability to move small objects with her mind. She longs to find others like herself.

    This was a fast, cute read. Never read it as a kid, though from the reviews on here, looks like everybody else did!
  • (4/5)
    Written by Mary, age 12: I loved the book. It was suspenseful. The characters were well written. I particularly liked the main character Katie - I could empathize with her. I wish she had made this book into a series.

    I forgot about this book! It was awesome. I still sometimes think I might be telekinetic if I just tried hard enough.
