"The Girl with the Silver Eyes" by Willo Davis Roberts

'The Girl with the Silver Eyes' by Willo Davis Roberts

★★★★★ Ten-year-old Katie Welker knows that she’s different in more ways than just having those unusual silver eyes which freak other people out. She can move things just by thinking about them and read the minds of cats, but what else might she be capable of. After she discovers that her mother took a drug while she was pregnant that was later removed from the market she begins searching for other kids that might be like her. Her search becomes more intense when pesky neighbors begin asking questions about her and imply that she may be a criminal. Written for tweens, this exciting fantasy will definitely keep readers turning pages.
