Book 1: Premonitions

Life hasn’t been good to Gracie. Her father left when she was 2, and her mother recently passed away. To top it all off, Gracie has premonitions.

Now a teenager, Gracie lives with her Aunt Shay and her cousin Diego. But she still feels like an outsider, like she doesn’t quite belong. And to make matters worse, her best friend Emily has gone missing. Emily is not the type to run away. Someone must have kidnapped her. Gracie has premonitions about Emily’s whereabouts; she sees a boat and a waterfall, and she knows that the kidnapper is someone Emily thought she could trust.

While the police investigate different leads, Gracie follows her visions. But going after Emily might not be such a safe idea. Because now the person who kidnapped Emily is after Gracie.


Book 2: Disappearance

When Gracie eats lunch at a seaside restaurant with her cousin, his girlfriend and a group of obnoxious jocks, one of the boys decides to dive off the restaurant's railing into the water. Gracie knows something bad will happen. But it’s not what she expects. The terrified boy finds a man’s dead body in the water. And so the murder investigation begins.

If discovering a dead body isn’t staggering enough, Gracie finds her father waiting at her house. How can he just show up after all these years? He left her and her mother and now he suddenly wants a relationship? But what if his sudden appearance is connected to the dead body?

  • I'll read them every once and a while.
  • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.

In my point of view, every animal has rights. However these scientists need candidates to test out their new formulas or ideas. The effects of these formulas have such serious results; either good and bad. But the animals are being deprived of their rights. So it has a yes or no answer.

This is where you can make suggestions to improve kidzworld!!! Maybe don't even comment a suggestion, just type in something to support someone's ideas or something. We need to get this thread popular so eventually Jordan will see it!!! My first suggestion is to make it so you can go to settings and say notification alarm where everytime you get a comment, reply, or pm, it will make a sound. And you can choose from a whole bunch of noises. And they should add a page that is just youtube, and they can minimize it so you don't have to listen to the KW radio stations. You should also be able to minimize a conversation in PM so you can do other stuff while chatting.
