Out of Sight, Out of Mind (Gifted #1) by Marilyn Kaye REVIEW

Out of Sight, Out of Mind (Gifted, #1)

I was a little annoyed at Amanda, since she was always acting so snobbish, even though she had a reason to be. I see what the authors trying to do, but I can't help but to be irritated with Amanda sometimes. Tracy is your typical shy girl... who dresses horribly. It was a little heart-wrenching to know how her family treated her after her mother had septuplets(!). It'd kind of make you feel invisible. Jenna is your average bad girl... or is she? She just wants to look tough, but she's actually a total softy... which is rather interesting.
The plot of this story, not to mention the whole series is fun, and not too boring. The way that the author wrote this book was fun to read, and I just gobbled it up in no time (did I just say gobbled?). I'd have to admit though, that their powers--- I mean, gifts, are a little too original. There'd be more humor in it if the author made up really random powe-- gifts for each of the characters.
Overall, Out of Sight, Out of Mind was definitely a fun read. If you're looking for a book that isn't too intense to possibly fry your brain with details, then you should read this book. And I'm looking forward to reading the second book and finding out more about Jenna.
COVER: 5/10
FIRST LINE: Sometimes, I look in a mirror, and there's nobody looking back. - page 1
SUMMARY: from Goodreads
Queen of Mean Amanda Beeson, 13, gets the shock of her life when she wakes up one morning to find herself in the body of one of her victims, Tracey Devon. Amanda discovers that Tracey, ignored at home and school, has the ability to become invisible. When Amanda finds herself in a special class that Tracey usually attends, it becomes clear that at Meadowbrook Middle School the definition of “gifted” has a whole other meaning. Can Amanda rescue her one-time target from obscurity and get her own life back on track? In order to do so, she will have to reveal her own startling gift and take her rightful place among Meadowbrook’s very secret clique.
