Gift - Andrea J. Buchanan

"High school sophomore Daisy Jones is just trying to get by unnoticed. It doesn't help that she's the new girl at school, lives in a trailer park, and doesn't even own a cell phone. But there's a good reason for all that: Daisy has a secret, unpredictable power-one only her best friend, Danielle, knows about. Despite her "gift" (or is it a curse?), Daisy's doing a good job of fitting in-and a cute senior named Kevin even seems interested in her! But when Daisy tries to help Vivi, a mysterious classmate in a crisis, she soon discovers that her new friend has a secret of her own. Now Daisy and her friends must deal with chilling dreams and messages from the beyond. Can Daisy channel the power she's always tried to hide-before it's too late?"

Firstly, let me say I struggled through this. I don't mind ghost stories, and I love paranormal books, but I felt this book was lacking in a few places.

Daisy is basically a loner with one best friend. She has a "gift" which she hides, but it does come in handy in the end. I felt the character's weren't fun enough for this book. I was bored by them most of the time. Daisy's gift, also left me disappointed. The blurb for this book really makes it sound amazing, but I really couldn't get into it.

The killer twist in the end, ALMOST makes up for the rest of the story.

Read it, if only just for the twist :)
