When Mom first handed me The Gifting by K. Ganshert, I was a little conflicted. Not that I don't love a good read, it was just that I usually don't read books like this, and by this I mean it looked like it would be scary! When I see the words 'Ouija board' I usually run fast and run far. I made it past the first couple chapters with no problem, but once I made it to the spooky scene I skimmed it as much as I could.

I didn't need vivid descriptions and imag My 15 year old daughter's review I didn't need vivid descriptions and images of demons and ghouls floating around in my head! After oh so bravely continuing to read, I slowly began becoming more and more interested. He just seemed so boring! So dull! I'm pretty sure he never smiled in the whole book. If he did, I don't remember it. I sort of feel like his whole character was based off his good looks, not his personality. All the other characters had at least two significant traits about themselves, but not him.

He was just Other than that, I loved the book! Especially that twist ending. I feel obligated to read book two. Smart move K. Smart move. I won a copy of this book at a blog giveaway. This did not influence my review of the book.

Jul 04, Romana rated it it was ok Shelves: ya-fiction , urban-fantasy , s. I was going to give this book 3 stars. But then the ending happened. I am SO pissed off by the ending. I mean, I pushed through pages of a book that wasn't bad, but it wasn't very good either. Not much happened and I really hate the whole weird-new-kid-in-school-meets-super-popular-hottie thing as a general rule.

But I kept reading because I was intrigued, because I wanted to know what happens, what exactly are those things Tess sees, how does it work? And then, right when it's about to be r I was going to give this book 3 stars. And then, right when it's about to be revealed Very abruptly. It's not fair to end a book in which hardly anything happens on a cliffhanger. I am so angry about it. It honestly feels like some ploy to get people to buy the next one and that pisses me off.

Oct 06, Melissa Extremely Behind rated it really liked it. Ganshert has written a fast-paced, engaging novel, beginning a trilogy that will appeal to teens and adults alike. Tess is a down-to-earth character, and her relationship with Luka is a good balance to the action and suspense of the rest of the story.

After an incident with a Ouija board, she sees strange men and Ganshert has written a fast-paced, engaging novel, beginning a trilogy that will appeal to teens and adults alike. After an incident with a Ouija board, she sees strange men and creatures that no one else sees.

Her family moves across the country to give her a fresh start, but also so she can receive treatment from a private facility and not have her experiences reported to the government. When she meets Luka and discovers that he too can see what she sees, they set out on a course to find out the truth — even if that puts their lives in danger Mar 09, Staci rated it liked it Shelves: read-in This YA futuristic and dystopian novel was more miss than hit for me.

I enjoyed the details about society in the future such as the governmental process of giving fetuses approval to be born or not and getting rid of the second amendment. All very frightening and perhaps not so far fetched in a generation or two. The visualization of the scenery and buildings was well done.

The pacing of the book was slow for me and while it picked up towards the end, I was never engrossed with the story. I am not This YA futuristic and dystopian novel was more miss than hit for me. I am not compelled to continue reading the series.

While I very much enjoy Katie Ganshert's contemporary novels for adults, this series in a different genre were a miss for me. View all 4 comments. Jul 01, Lindsey Books for Christian Girls rated it liked it Shelves: cf-fantasy-dystopian , cf-young-adult , read-reviewed , read-kindle.

Every quarter we're going to try and do a Teen Week! A week where every weekday has a new review of a Christian book written just for teens! I have very mixed feelings on it all. Therefore, I have very mixed feelings on this book. I've been meaning to reread that series, due to having remember really liking it and it's been over three years since I first read it. I feel like this might have been boarder line—if not crossing—my comfort zone of these topics.

I'm really not sure what to think. I did not like that those parts were pretty detailed, with all the skeletons and creeps-with-no-eyes. Probably not the best thing to read about at night. I'm really disappointed in the language, I was more than a bit shocked and not thrilled at all when it was repeated again and again, as you can probably imagine.

There also were those kisses at the end, that made me uncomfortable due to the ages of the characters being near mine, but that's just me. All that said, the plot and Tess really interest me and I plan to continue the series. I'm just hoping it will be cleaner. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author. Oct 02, Kara Swanson rated it really liked it Shelves: marvelous-modern-ya , fantastic-fiction , supernatural-ya. I am such a sucker when it comes to good YA romp about a girl who can see into the spiritual realm.

Angels, Demons and everything in between Tess has always known she was different. Ever since she was young, she's been seeing things that no one else can. Things that shouldn't exist. In a time when her biggest worry should be moving to a new school, making friends and getting good grades, Tess is terrified that she will become like her grandmother. She discovers that her Grandma could al I am such a sucker when it comes to good YA romp about a girl who can see into the spiritual realm.

She discovers that her Grandma could also see the impossible, and that the woman was torn away from society because of it. Locked up in an asylum and experimented on. Why would the government care so much about the demented ramblings of women who are supposedly crazy? Because in a world where God has been erased from memory, where the physical is all there is to believe in, seeing another realm is dangerous.

Crazy is dangerous. But, unlike her Grandmother, Tess is not alone in her strange abilities. And she is not about to go down without a fight. Katie has created an impressive debut into the YA genre. I really found myself relating with Tess's character, and even her relationship with her younger brother brought to mind my own siblings. Luka was also a very intriguing guy character and I was glad to see a young man displayed in YA literature who didn't really care what the rest of the school thought of him.

Someone who shook off the advances of any forward girls, and instead sticking close to his friends. Not to mention what an amazing twist it was to find that he was actually a survived abortion. That his mother decided to keep him, when the government had pushed her to abort.

So many wonderful twists and turns in this novel. However, there were a few things that stumped me, so I had to dock off a star for those. It is a little issue of propriety and lies. The characters seemed adept at spinning a web of falsehoods to any adult they came in contact to including parents and never with any repercussions.

There was no punishment or even acknowledgement that lying is wrong, and it will always hurt someone, even if that person isn't you. As a teenager, I find that this "parents are idiots and you can go around them" perspective is constantly being pushed at me, when its not true. Generally, adults are wiser and able to help in dire situations. These lies even led to some situations that made this reader a tad uncomfortable.

Luka is able to sneak into Tess's room at night, to talk with her, and they have no accountability. No adults are even aware that there is a boy in their daughter's room. Even something harmless and gentle as him sitting protectively next to her as she sleeps, so that she will be safe, can turn into an awkward situation if the teens aren't careful.

Not to say that I expect characters to be perfect, but to at least be smart. And pure. And careful. It can be so easy to play with someone's heart, when we are fragile creatures. Even high school drama can turn into something that could shatter a soul.

With those details in mind, I still would highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of YA paranormal. Such a unique perspective on the supernatural, and to see the battle of light and dark set against a backdrop of a dystopian government. Don't miss this wild ride--it truly is a gift. Dec 19, Trisha rated it liked it. This was cute but maybe a little young for me. I thought the characters were interesting and so were the dreams I found many parts to be silly and unrealistic but, with a younger reader, I think the adventure would spark their interest and they will love it!

I just wish we'd gotten more answers in the first book instead of a cliffhanger and JUST getting the title of the book. Jun 19, Dawn rated it it was amazing Shelves: diminishing-pile-of-tbr-challenge , ereader-challenge , read-in , kindle-book , read-in This was absolutely wonderful.

Not at all what I expected, but absolutely wonderful. Full of intrigue, action, and leaving me anxious to begin book 2. I really enjoyed this novel and give it 5-stars because of the story, the plot and the characters. It's a YA book and has all the excitement and coming of age that you'd expect in a good YA, laced with the fantasy and mystery of what is happening to Tess, Luka, Pete, and more.

Excellent writing style and I think this was a fantastic YA, coming of age, fantasy novel. Jun 01, Beth-Anne rated it it was amazing. I'll be honest, as a Christian reader I felt uncomfortable with the Ouija board scene and the man that Tess sees in the beginning of the story. But I think that was the point. I just wasn't far enough in. So I stopped to see if I really wanted to continue reading this book. But I have a lot of faith in this author her other books are a completely different genre and so I decided to press on.

And I am glad I did. If you pick up this book, and are uncertain, keep reading, I was pleasantly surpri I'll be honest, as a Christian reader I felt uncomfortable with the Ouija board scene and the man that Tess sees in the beginning of the story. If you pick up this book, and are uncertain, keep reading, I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and spiritual aspects of the book that I wasn't expecting.

It shows you that just because you think you know where a book is going, you don't always know. The discomfort I felt, I was supposed to feel as a reader. The Gifting is a face paced, edge of your seat, kind of story.

I was reading as fast as I could to see what would happen next, and there was no way you could guess what twist would happen next. I cannot wait to read the other two books in this series. This could easily become the next biggest thing in YA lit. The story line is a dystopian, romance, that includes the supernatural.

The romance is clean but Luka and Tess will draw you in as K. Ganshert writes their stories in such a unique and powerful way that you feel that you could be Tess or Luka experiencing those things. The romance written is a strong force that goes beyond a typical high school romance. It shows what real love can be. The dystopian aspect will cause you to stop and think.

Analyzing our society and how it is similar and yet different to the setting of Tess and Luka. In ways that the Hunger Games or Divergent made you consider society's "norms" and question them, so will The Gifting. The supernatural or paranormal aspect will give you chills. The further I got into the book and the more I read the more certain I was about the underlining truth that Ganshert was telling.

I am eager to read the rest of the series to find out. Fan of Frank Peretti,and Ted Dekker will definitely want to check these books out. I received this ebook in exchange for my honest review. Rating 3. I enjoyed this book, but there were also parts I struggled with. This book reminded me a lot of Ted Dekker's book, Eyes Wide Open, which I read which also had a lot of questions woven through the book which made me keep on reading for answers.

Since this is a dystopian fantasy focused on YA which also focuses on the general market, not on the Christian market, I will try and focus my review on that factor. On that bases t Rating 3. On that bases this was a great book and I understand the high ratings it received.

Even though the time period is in the future, it seemed real and not far-fetched. It is a world which want perfection and turned their backs on God. The characters, Tess and Luka, were believable and even though I struggled in the beginning to connect to them since they are still in high school , they grew on me. There were also some twists which I didn't expect. The book deals with series issues - abortions and the spiritual realm.

I enjoyed seeing how Tess comes to accept her gift and how she and Luka steps into fighting evil. I did not like the hypnotherapy and dream catchers references since I do not agree with that personally. I enjoy spiritual warfare books, but the way the characters did the fighting in this book was a bit weird. I also did not like the few times there were a foul word used.

The theme however I got from the book was good - you cannot turn your back on God and play with the evil side of the spiritual realm without serious devastating consequences. I want to see what happens, so I will continue the series. I probably won't recommend this to anyone younger than 18 though.

Sep 12, Jennifer Fromke rated it it was amazing. Update: SO amazing. This is YA at its finest. Action-packed, spirit-realm battling, dystopian-ish, teenage-angst-y, romantic, and empowering all rolled into an incredible story I could not put down. Seriously could not put it down. Read all 3 books in five days. My family is starving - okay, maybe not - but they wondered what happened to me Reminded me of The Selection series which I loved , but it's so much deeper, more creative, more intense.

READ this book, and you won't be able to resist books 2 and 3. Seriously - I'm so obsessed with the series, I cannot write a review today almost done with book 2, can't wait for book 3! Suffice it to say: Way Better than Hunger Games. That is all for now. Jul 07, Kara rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , ya , fantasy , contemporary.

A fabulous beginning to this amazing series. Ganshert kept me on the edge of my seat the entire way through and I loved it. Dec 31, Gretchen Scott rated it really liked it. I thought that this book was really good. I loved to see how she described the future of where our nation was headed. I cannot wait to read the next books and look forward to more books by this author. Dec 15, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: tough-heroines , ya-series , audible , series-complete , reads , dystopian.

In the beginning, I was somewhat skeptical because there are some YA cliches; girl is an outcast and doesn't know she's special, brooding and reluctant hero could falling for said girl Despite that, once the storyline began to fully develop, I found the supernatural element to be interesting. I look forward to the next installment.

Audio - Heather Masters is an excellent narrator and actually sounds like a teenaged girl, which seldom happens in YA audio. It is definitely a good book. This is a well written YA story about a girl who can see angels and demons. It's a near-future world that regulates mental illness and disability in general. The premise is decent and the characters are moderately likable. I'm just having some problems with the ideas here.

I think they're being handled well - I just don't want to go down the path that this story is taking. The story is clearly addressing the abortion issue, which is fine within the context. The angels and demons thing is ok. But I have a feeling that it's going to have people dying and turning into angels - which I have a problem with, because that's not what happens. People are people and angels are angels, both created beings, and one does not turn into the other.

I also wish it would stop trying to dance around the social issues and just confront them outright. We don't need a dystopian world to frame out what is being talked about here. The book has a strong good and evil element, light and dark forces battling. Like I said, it's a good premise. I think I'm also just growing weary of kids in high school dealing with angst and self-image and confidence around the opposite sex - so I'm putting this aside and encouraging those who like that kind of thing to read it.

It really is good. It's just not for me right now. Jun 18, Mary rated it it was amazing Shelves: book-club. Clear your schedule - as soon as you start this book, you literally can't put it down. This story is so intense and riveting. The Gifting does end as a cliffhanger, so be prepared to read the whole series!

I devoured this novel before Book 2 The Awakening was released. Oh the agony! I recommend this series to everyone I know. I recommended it to a lady in her 50's and she loved it so much that she made her college aged son read it too! A friend of mine is so busy with her kids that she just do Clear your schedule - as soon as you start this book, you literally can't put it down.

Yet sadly, as George Dohrmann's Play Their Hearts Out demonstrates, such a paradise is fading fast in today's corporate sports world. Dohrmann provides a first-hand account of the rise of a nine-year-old basketball phenom and the grassroots programs that both helped and hindered his dreams of superstardom. To call this story a cautionary tale is to sell it short, as Play Their Hearts Out is an unflinching look at the increasing need for hype in youth athletics. Fans of the brilliant Hoop Dreams documentary are advised to add this book to their cart immediately, as Dohrmann's masterful ability to remove himself from the plotline achieves an honesty that leaves any and all judgments to the reader.

In , while working at the St. Dohrmann lives in San Francisco with his family. This is his first book. Basketball fans frequently hear references to AAU Amateur Athletic Union summer leagues, in which young players have a chance to hone their games.

The AAU leagues are often criticized for exploiting young kids, but most of these charges have been based on rumor or hearsay. Until now. Dohrmann, the last sportswriter to win a Pulitzer Prize, spent approximately nine years researching this book; the story begins in , when he convinced AAU coach Joe Keller to give him unfettered access to his team, the Inland Stars. The only condition was that the book wouldn't be published until the players—then 9 and 10 years old—were in college.

Keller is a fascinating subject, a mix of positive characteristics—he is a genuinely caring father figure for many of his players—and profoundly negative. In Dohrmann's portrayal, Keller emerges as a shameless promoter of himself and his players, a poor coach, and a man for whom ethics are always relative.

Money, of course, is key; surprisingly, there are lots of ways for coaches to profit in the underground basketball world, mainly from shoe companies the real villains in this story in the form of cash as well as products, prestige, and influence. An eye-opening look at the underbelly of modern American sports. Starred Review. Dohrmann, a Pulitzer Prize—winning reporter for Sports Illustrated, spent eight years chronicling the struggles and triumphs of a select group of California youths who chased their dream in his wonderful and immaculately reported first book.

Dohrmann largely focuses his work on Demetrius Walker, the hoops phenom who seems destined for stardom at a young age, his travel team from California, and the club's complex and bombastic coach, Joe Keller. Dohrmann began reporting on the book back in , when Walker and many of his teammates were only 10 years old, and followed them through to their high school graduation. Along the way, he shows the brutal nature of "grassroots" basketball, in which coaches can view their players as "investments," the power of sneaker companies in youth basketball, and the cutthroat antics of collegiate recruiting.

But this is equally a story about relationships and the sad deterioration of many of them, whether it be among teammates, parents and son, or coach and player. It's a brilliant and heart-wrenching journey, and a cautionary tale to any basketball player who thinks the path to the NBA is a slam dunk. All rights reserved. Chapter One The Frank A. Gonzales Community Center sits on the corner of Colton Avenue and E Street in a mostly Latino neighborhood in Colton, among houses with unkempt yards and low-sloped roofs and next to a baseball field with an all-dirt infield.

Like many public buildings in the Inland Empire, it is less inviting the closer you get. The bottom third of the building is painted a reddish brown, the rest a dirty pink, and the whole rectangular structure appears in need of a good hosing. During a development spree in the s, many similar structures were built—elementary schools, community centers, government buildings—and aesthetics were forsaken for speedy construction.

All around the Inland Empire, these buildings rose along with cookie-cutter housing developments, each more soulless than its predecessor. Sneakers sliding, a leather ball pounding on the wood floor, coaches urging players to get back on defense, parents shouting at their kids to take the open shot—you hear none of it. The milieu of Southern California abounds: cars speeding by on Colton Avenue, the zip of an air gun from one of two auto-repair shops across the street, a constant hum from Interstate The sounds of its residents, meanwhile, remain locked within that windowless cement box.

Inside the gym, on the far side of the court, Joe Keller stood with his arms folded in front of a black golf shirt. Fans seated behind him were forced to either end of the aluminum bleachers to gain a clear view of the court. He watched intently a game between a team from Santa Monica and another from Orange County. The kids on the floor were no older than eleven, some as young as eight, and it was difficult to see basketball greatness amid the chaos on the court.

Looking at Keller, I wondered if he possessed a clairvoyance that enabled him to see the game and its participants differently, to find greatness in the folly of children. Another AAU coach, only twenty-five and in his first year of coaching, stood next to Keller.

They discussed the players on the court, beginning with the eleven-year-old point guard for the Santa Monica team, the only girl in the tournament. She deftly dribbled through defenders, slipping the ball through her legs and around her back with ease, and her outfit was equally refined. The red rubber band holding back her ponytail matched the red trim on her jersey and on the black Vince Carter—model Nikes she wore. He was clearly deferential and at one point folded his arms in front of his chest and widened his stance, striking the same pose as Keller.

Talk turned to the point guard for the team from Orange County, an Asian kid with whom the coach was clearly impressed. That kid is fast, sure, but how tall is he going to be? Not tall enough. He next brought up the portly center on the Orange County team, the tallest player on the court.

This prompted a dismissive glance from Keller that suggested he had never heard a dumber question in his thirty years. He can barely move. Look at his legs. A fucking helmet. A couple times, my guys blocked his shot into the stands. Why do that to a kid? Coming off a high screen, she got free on the right wing for a clear, albeit distant, look at the basket. Her body scrunched downward like a jack-in-the-box; the elbow on her right arm dipped so low it seemed to touch her knee.

She then sprang up and slightly forward in one sudden motion—more of a heave than a release—and it seemed unlikely a decent shot would emerge from such an ungraceful motion. Yet the result was a high-arcing shot with silky backspin. Monica hopped a little on her left foot as the ball floated toward the rim, and for a moment it looked good.

But the ball grazed the front of the rim and rattled within the hoop before bouncing out. As the Orange County team celebrated, Monica put her hand to her forehead and rubbed down her damp brown hair. She bent at the waist and placed her hands on her knees, staying there even as the next two teams to play circled the court, beginning their warm-ups.

One of those teams, the Arizona Stars, wore white uniforms, and its players were a mishmash of gangly and squat, black and white, athletic and awkward. In short, they were a team of children, not unlike the two squads that had finished playing moments before.

The other team, the Inland Stars, was something else. Every boy was African American, and they were bigger and taller. From just watching them circle the court twice, it was clear none possessed the clumsiness one associates with rapidly growing boys. They wore black warm-ups over black uniforms and black shoes, an intimidating ensemble that contributed to my first impression: There was no way they were in the same age group as the other team.

He placed his hand on her back and she looked up. He said something only she could hear and pointed toward the basket, as if to show her how close her shot had come to going in. Monica straightened up and put her hands on her hips, listening as the tall boy, who wore number 23, went on. He was smiling the whole time, a wide smile that flattened his thick top lip, and he continually shifted his weight back and forth. Finally the boy said something and Monica shook her head, as if shaking off the defeat, and then she smiled too.

The boy stuck out his right hand and Monica slapped it. Mission accomplished, he pivoted on his left foot and literally jumped away from her, bouncing back into line with his teammates. Keller had pointed this boy out earlier. His name was Demetrius Walker, and Keller spared no hyperbole in describing his abilities. At first glance Demetrius appeared to be unique. He had a large head and well-defined cheekbones, which could be evidence that he was taller and more athletic than other boys only because he matured earlier.

But his arms, shoulders, chest, and legs were those of a prepubescent boy, smooth and lacking definition. He pulled them up to his true waist, and that gave the impression that his legs bypassed his hips and connected directly to his chest. There were other indicators I learned about later, such as his shoe size 14 and the height of his relatives his mom was six foot one, his uncle six foot eight , but at first I was not sure how to judge his potential.

Few endeavors are less exact than trying to forecast athletic greatness in still-developing children. Keller might have unearthed something special, but how could anyone say for sure? Keller sidled up to me as Demetrius and the rest of the Inland Stars continued their warm-ups. He said the boys had been lethargic in practice the day before and a few were nursing minor injuries.

As he spoke, he scowled and punched downward, as if he were hammering a nail with his clenched fist. Please consider your language — No Profanity. Most of the Inland Stars had their heads down as Keller spoke, but Demetrius looked down the court, sizing up the Arizona Stars. This was most obvious when Demetrius stood facing their center for the opening tip.

They were the same height, but the Arizona center had chunky legs accentuated by white socks pulled up to his knees. He tapped the ball to a teammate, who cruised in for an uncontested score. Whatever he said, it was clearly a command for the top two players in the press to trap the ball handler.

His players reacted instantly to his barks, moving toward the opposing guard with such speed that they overwhelmed him. He panicked and aimed a pass across the court to a teammate, but Demetrius stepped in front of it and walked in for a layup. The next two possessions ended with similar results, and I began to wonder if Arizona would ever get the ball across half-court. If one of his players missed a shot, even if it was a good attempt, Keller berated him.

If an Arizona player made a miracle 3-pointer, Keller went ballistic. He reacted so strongly to perceived mistakes that he lunged forward as if he were going to run onto the court, grab one of his players by the jersey, and rip him out of the game. Like a versatile baller, George Dohrmann swings seamlessly from position to position: investigative journalist, social critic, gifted storyteller.

The result, Play Their Hearts Out is a gem of a book that addresses THE question central to contemporary basketball: how does such an unseemly culture spring from such an essentially beautiful game?

The second limo pulled up, its bullet-diffusive armor shimmering purple in the late afternoon sun. The bodyguards climbed out first, muscles bulging under their custom navy jackets. They radiated hostile thoughts in my direction, as usual. I unnerved them. The executives in shiny nove-fiber suits came next, their hard-soled shoes scraping the cobbled driveway as they jockeyed each other with fast-paced thoughts about supply-chain management.

My dad followed in his trim black jacket, subtly angling himself between me and the bodyguards. I could easily jack the goons myself—I was more of a threat to them than the other way around—but my dad was extra protective these days. The executives joined Mr. Trullite on the steps of the mansion, a twenty-thousand-square-foot behemoth with north and south wings, plus a west wing tucked behind the thick marble columns of the entrance.

I mentally brushed over the usual assortment of cooks, maids and executive staff inside. My featherlight touch on his mind barrier popped up his name. As I pressed into his mind to find more, the gardener surprised me by reacting to my mental touch. What the…? How had I missed that he was a jacker? Were my skills getting that rusty? Maybe he was just a linker—a weak jacker who could only link thoughts, not control minds.

Then the gardener shoved me out of his head and mentally hunted for me, something no linker could do. I was outside the reach of most normal jackers, so his search netted him nothing but the staff inside the mansion. That was when he panicked and ran. But Mr. Trullite was paying me to find hidden jackers, no matter what their situation, even if they were relatively harmless rooks.

I left Mr. I needed to get closer. Now that he was on full alert, I could barely stay in his head, much less stop him from running off. Maybe my skills really had gotten weaker. Back in the camp, when I was mentally wrestling with jackers all the time, I had gotten stronger the more I used my abilities. He landed knee-down in the grass. Fear stung his mind as an image flashed through his thoughts: a man in a dark, skin-hugging mask. A contractor from Jackertown. The kind that set up deals between mindreaders with lots of cash and jackers willing to do anything for it.

I sucked in a breath. He was a jackworker. This was not good. Dad— His thoughts rushed a million miles an hour. What are you doing? I should have linked in earlier, before I took off running. The gardener who works in back.

South lawn. That was the only threat that would make either of us break a sweat. Let me handle this! He could be anyone. I slowed to let my dad catch up. Yeah, well, Mr. Anyone is getting away. He staggered out of the gardens and tore across the lawn. My dad let loose a mental curse, the kind he never let my mom hear, and sprinted past. I caught up to him at the end of the south wing, ready to put on some speed.

Then again, maybe the masked contractor that hired him to jack Mr. Trullite would be waiting in the woods with a gun. No one was there, but Mr. Still, not really a situation I wanted to get into. I quickly checked back on Mr. Waves of fear pulsed through their minds and distracted them while Mr. Trullite tried not to think of my real name.

He was more concerned about keeping my identity secret than his own safety. I focused back on the jackworker, more determined than ever to stop him. Near the edge of the neatly manicured lawn, David was about to disappear into the thickets. As I reached for his mind, my dad stopped cold, drew a gun out of a holster inside his jacket, and fired.

Nearly a hundred yards away, the jacker went facedown in the grass. My breath caught, and I stumbled to a stop. Did my dad just kill him? Then I realized the gun barrel was too wide for a regular gun, and his shot had made a pop-whoosh sound. I unlocked my legs and jogged up next to my dad. I wanted to ask, And when did you start carrying a weapon? The same sedative that the government had used in gas form to subdue jackers in the concentration camp.

My dad flipped the body over so we could see his face. Were the contractors in Jackertown using kids for jackwork now? I never intended to publish it, but I was approached by a friend who was starting a small publishing company and was asked to submit. Would you please tell us about the premise of this series? Susan: Mindjacking is the term I use for mind-control. Kira is a mindjacker, and the hidden world of mindjackers within the larger mindreading world drives the story.

The exploration of what we can do with our minds is endlessly fascinating to me. TRC: If the MindJack series is a runaway hit with the readers, will you consider writing future storylines or novellas? Susan: This is a great question! It would have to be as compelling as the Mindjack trilogy before I would be willing to commit to that, though. I think each book, and trilogy, needs to stand on its own.

Would you please tell us something about the premise? But safe to say, the story of mindjackers is just beginning. How do you do that? Is everything written in italics?? Then I realized that the mindreading and mindjacking experience was a very physical one see above and that helped make the story more concrete, less esoteric. And more reasonable to render onto the page! What do you feel is the attraction for adults of the many YA storylines and series?

Susan: I love reading and writing YA because the stories are fresh, fast-paced, and deal with universal experiences. Susan: I hope your readers enjoy the Mindjack books! Favorite Food Cheese. No, sourdough bread! Ok, cheese AND sourdough bread. Favorite Dessert Any form of chocolate. Dark or Milk Chocolate Yes. Hunger Games. TRC: Susan, we would like to thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. Please keep us informed about your future projects.

Discrimination and stereotyping will force the mindjackers into hiding-fearing for their lives. Kira Moore is a mindjacker. It has been 8 months since Kira revealed to the world that Agent Kestral and the FBI were performing illegal experiments on changelings. With her family now secluded and hiding under false names, Kira and her father are working for a powerful man thought to be on their side.

Complicating matters, Clan leader Molloy appears to have aligned himself with other mindjackers in the hopes of finding his brother. Kira soon meets the other housemates who are hiding in Jackertown. Julien, their leader, is hoping that Kira will help find and rescue his sister, who has been taken prisoner by Agent Kestral to another mindjacker experimental facility.

With the revelation that mindjackers exist, security is tight, and government officials are hoping to round up everyone perceived as a threat. Kira is introduced to several variations on the mindjacker phenomenon. It is the mage more than anyone that the FBI fear. But it is Sasha that will truly scare Kira-as a scribe, Sasha has a special ability that could easily make him a weapon in the war against the others. Security becomes a necessary evil, but detection and discovery will result in lives lost and the loss of a friend.

But the biggest loss for Kira will be her heart, when the one person she loves most in this life, is the one person who is no longer himself. The story is fast paced, the characters are real, and the discrimination against those that are different is a definite possibility in the world in which we live.

Susan K Quinn writes a thought provoking series that can easily reflect the mindset of many countries, groups and faiths. A combination of paranormal and science fiction, Open Minds follows Kira Moore as she traverses her way through a world of mindreaders and zeroes.

In a world where mindreading is the norm due to decades of contaminated water those without the ability are known as zeroes, but there are a few who possess a power greater than most, and Kira will learn first hand, just how different is she. At the start of another school year, Kira has yet to change. Without the ability to mindread, she is at a disadvantage with schoolwork, friendships and future employment. In a world where all communication is done through mindreading, she is considered a zero-a nobody.

But an accidental encounter with fellow student Simon Zagan will reveal that Kira is more than a mindreader-she is a mindjacker like Simon-she has the ability to control others with her mind. Hoping to engage Kira one on one, Simon directs Kira into a world of manipulation and power. Practicing the art of control, Kira soon learns that there is more to her mindjacking than control-Kira is special-with powers that have yet to come into their own.

But there are others who wish to acquire Kira and it is Simon who has been instructed to bring Kira to the Clan. The Clan, headed by the mysterious Molloy, is an organized family of mindjackers that seeks revenge against those who are kidnapping and experimenting on the mindjacker changelings. In a world of mindreaders, mindjackers are a threat to their peaceful existence-with the ability to control others, mindjackers are perceived as dangerous, and there are those who have the ability to strike out and destroy.

Following a government raid on the Clan, Kira finds herself in a concentration camp for mindjackers. Physical violence, medical experiments and missing friends have Kira and the changelings fearing for their lives. Escape is the only option, but when Kira returns home, she finds her family is now under surveillance. Hoping to contact her parents, Kira soon discovers that she is not the only mindjacker in the family.

The dialogue is mature, the narration clear and to the point, without any of the condescending ideals of teenage drama. Yes, there is some teenage interplay between the haves and have-nots, but the harassment and high school drama is kept to a minimum and does not overwhelm the story. Mind Games is a small introduction leading into the Mindjack Trilogy that will help explain the premise behind the story.

When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price. Like a mash-up of all your favorite science-fiction adventures from Star Wars to The Legend of Korra, it blends nonstop action, nail-biting escapes, and great romance. I absolutely loved it!

A great series conclusion—a must-read.
