Title: The Sight
Author: Judy Blundell (writing as Jude Watson)
Ages: 13+
Rating: 5


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?

The Sight by Judy Blundell will keep you on your toes. It’s a fantastic mystery book for teens, where the protagonist dives right into the investigations. Kidzworld recommends this two book collection to any teen reader. Tell us what you think of The Sight in our comments section below.

  • I'll read them every once and a while.

@rainbowpoptart Well, I'd have to disagree with you there my friend. Naturally the audience that buys Barbie dolls are young girls. At a young age and with multimedia today girls are highly influenced by what they see on the TV, Magazine, and you guessed it their toys. Seeing is believing and with the unreachable beauty standards you see in magazines, it's kinda hard for girls to not want to pursue to be skinner and the likes. But anyway, your right with the Barbie being independent woman that don't need a man. But I think this new line is showing that all types of girls can be independent. This new line is expanding its skin colors, giving different hip sizes and different heights and different types of hair styles. It's no longer the blond haired and blue eyed type of deal. I think this is representing that there are many different kinds of people and different kinds of shape a sizes. With the television showing perfect fictional girl characters, or models on magazines, and other places, I think that it's good that they're showing different body types.

@urifour11  I don't disagree with that. Well, not entirely. I disagree with your Barbie comments. Pink is Barbie's everything, and making something not pink for the female Barbie dolls would be a bit.. not Barbie.  I don't like their changing of the body shapes all too much. Barbie is supposed to be an exceptionally good-looking woman who shows girls that they don't need a man to be happy with their lives (though some people may think otherwise because of Ken's existence) and that they can do literally whatever they want to. It sounds really harsh, but I think it's the individual's fault for thinking they need to look a certain way to be accepted.  Although I strongly disagree with the newer dolls, I do completely respect why they're doing it. I'm sure they're working on the Lego sets. They already have dolls, so Legos should be here any day now, haha. And @Pink_Cool_Girl I want to look into the computer thing you were talking about to continue that discussion, but I'm super busy right now (I'm multi-tasking like crazy ugh). It'll have to wait until tomorrow. :P
