Customer Reviews of Gift
I have never read a book with a plot like this before, and I really enjoyed the originality of the story. I was pulled into the story from the first page and did not want to put the book down. This book has four main characters: Daisy is electric--she can effect how things like cell phones and computers act ; Vivi communicates with a ghost and seems rather spaced-out at times; Kevin is Daisy's boyfriend, he excels in English class and has epilepsy; Danielle is Daisy's best friend, who feels a bit left out of the group, though she does have the same dreams as Daisy. The characters are portrayed well and the interaction between them is excellent. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
