BOOK REVIEW: SAFE HOUSE

SAFE HOUSE
Meg Cabot
Simon Pulse
2002

Available: Paperback Kindle, audible, library binding

   Sixteen-year-old Jess Mastriani was on vacation when a classmate disappeared and later was found murdered. Even though Jess had nothing to do with it, her classmates seem to think she could have saved the girl. Why? Because even though Jess denies it, she has a gift. She has psychic visions and can find people. This brands her as a little strange to her peers, which is one of the reasons she claims to have lost the ability. She wants to fit in. But when a second cheerleader disappears, she has to act even if it means her cover is blown.
    This was a nice blend of mystery, suspense and romance. Jess's voice is strong. High school girls will especially love the story and the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series. This is the third book.

Target audience: Grades 9-12
Mystery / Suspense: High
Kid appeal: Definate
