indigoWritten by Gina Linko

Everyone has special powers, but some people’s are more controversial than others. When Corrine’s sister dies while she is with her on an otherwise normal day, Corrine believes she contributed to her death. But as she begins to explore her powers with an unexpected ally, she begins to understand more how her ability works and how it might be used to heal rather than hurt. It comes with a cost, however, and she must learn how to cope with the idea that just because she can, doesn’t always mean she should.

This book is appealing to readers who have lost a loved one and felt that they could have done more, or differently, to save them. It speaks to everyone who has had to cope with the realization that sometimes you must learn to take care of yourself before you’re truly able to help other people, and knowing how difficult it can be to put limits on yourself when there’s so much more you feel needs to be accomplished. This book is recommended for all those people out there who believe in miracles and don’t always have to know the scientific explanation behind them to know they exist.
