Synopses & Reviews
After being expelled from school and sent away to live with her grandmother, Sabine Rose is determined to become a normal teenage girl. She fits right in at her new school--making friends and even catching the eye of the adorable Josh DeMarco. No one suspects Sabine is hiding psychic abilities, except her grandma Nona, who also has the gift. But try as she might, Sabine simply can't ignore the compelling images that creep into her head. A girl with a dragonfly tattoo in certain danger ... a broken-hearted soul seeking revenge ... an angry spirit trapped for eternity... the spirit of a former classmate with urgent warnings... With help from Opal, her spirit guide, she solves the mystery that each vision brings, while trying to cope with problems in her own life-like finding a cure for her beloved Nona who's suffering from a fatal hereditary illness. Filled with sharp observations about friendship, family, romance, and self-discovery, Linda Joy Singleton writes candidly about the painful process of growing up with an extraordinary talent.
