Review: Out of Sight, Out of Mind - Book #1 Gifted series - Marilyn Kaye - Feb 2009
Imagine if one of your worst nightmares came true ? How would you cope , what would you do to fix it ? Meet , Amanda Benson she is the Queen Bee of the local high school. She is the IT Girl. Being the IT girl and Queen Bee , comes with alot of responsibilities and some of those are the not -so-nice tasks of bullying those in what you call the "social rejects or loser pile". One of the girls who is a constant target for Amanda's bullying is a girl called Tracey Devon. When Amanda starts to feel sorry for Tracey , strange things start to happen and Amanda somehow ends up in Tracey's body as we discover Amanda has the gift of body snatching. As Amanda tries to discover a way out of Tracey's body , things start to go a little haywire as Tracey starts to fade into the background more and more until she has disappeared completely as Tracey too has been hiding a secret - she has the power to go invisible. Can Amanda bring Tracey out of the darkness and bring light and happiness to Tracey's life and in doing so, will Amanda be able to examine what it's really like to walk in somebody's shoes. A great start to a wonderful series about a group of misfits - it reminded me of The Breakfast Club who have been brought together as they have one thing in common - they all have special abilities.
