Publisher Comments:

When the old woman died, she left her grandchild Nancy with the extraordinary gift of magic. Nancy can read people's minds, know their thoughts, and make them do what she wants. Will she use her gift for good, or satisfy her own selfish desire? From the bestselling author of "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Synopsis:

When the old woman died, she left each of her grandchildren something very special. For Kirby, the gift of dance. For Brendon, the gift of music. And for Nancy, the most extraordinary gift of all . . . the gift of magic.

Kirby is an incredible dancer. Brendon can play music without having been taught. Nancy can do tricks with her mind: knowing what is going to happen and knowing what someone is thinking or doing. All of these powerful skills were left to the children by their grandmother, but can they handle them or will they only harm themselves and others?

I first read this book when I was a kid, and still enjoy it now. The characters can be a touch cliche but are interesting none the less. The writing and the plot are a bit simple but enjoyable.

This was a pretty decent book, but it wasn't one of Lois Duncan's best work. It's still okay though.
