“This was a GREAT book. Definitely a fantasy/ sci-fi-ish book. I got it for free on IBooks on my Ipod and i loved it. The next book isn't free though:-/”simran k wrote this review Wednesday, December 7, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Wow! Sometimes a book just hits you the right way at the right time! Talk about a great start to a new series! Being a teen is hard enough, add being the pastor's daughter, finding out about your 'special abilities,' family secrets, and have some boyfriend trouble-again, what a great read! Love the characters, the dialogue, the interaction (everyone seems so human, so not prefect)! The author did a fabulous job here, I was completely entertained! (Maybe she was under the influence of her orange house)”Dianne wrote this review Thursday, December 1, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I actually meant to read the book Glimpse by Williams, oh well. This book didn't do anything for me. At first I thought it might be like a modern version of Anne of Green Gables, what a great idea! But then it morphed into an awkward supernatural story that doesn't have any WOW factor with its plot or characters. I mean, the most glamorous setting is public transportation in downtown Portland? Really?”BookLicious wrote this review Thursday, November 24, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The story line was really unique but not very well written. I enjoyed the book, but not enough to read the sequel!”Susan V wrote this review Saturday, February 26, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“ I am so impressed. So impressed with Stacey Wallace Benefiel's writing, and to be honest a little confused as to why a larger publishing company didn't snatch her book up! I'm so glad that independent publishing companies such as CreateSpace allow authors like Stacey to share their work with us. Truly, this was a book I loved and I'm already looking forward to the next one!
Zellie is smitten with Avery. So smitten in fact that she gets in trouble in church (her dad is the pastor) for spending too much time staring at him and dreaming. First off, how sweet is that? However it doesn't end there, no not by a long shot. Zellie is a fiery and headstrong girl who knows what she wants and goes for it! Oh sure, her dad might disapprove if he found out but Avery is so good it just doesn't even matter.
I LOVED Zellie! I loved her tenacity, I loved how she is awkward at times and so brave and put together at others. I loved that Zellie is a typical teenage girl. She's someone who everyone will be able to relate to, almost like a "Jane Every Girl" of sorts. Layered on top of that also however, is a character who you will fall in love with from the very first page. Zellie says and does things that will make you laugh out loud at times, and make you feel deeply for her at others. I wish I could better describe this character, but really all I can say is just that she is amazing! You'll have to read for yourself.
Stacey's take on visions and seeing the future is really intriguing. Without going into too much detail, I will say that Zellie is fortunate to be able to do more than just see the future. In fact, her other power is so amazing! Sorry for the vague writing! I know. I'm actually hoping to tempt you more into reading this book. If that didn't work I have three words for you. Ghost Baby Daddy. Mmhmmm....take that as you will. Give this book a read! It is well worth your time!”
