Finding Sky (Benedict, #1)Finding Sky by Joss Stirling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(I was given this book for free on a read-to-review basis.)
16-year-old Sky has issues. She can’t remember much of her life before the age of 10, not even her real name. Dumped on the streets at the age of six, she can’t remember much before she was adopted by Sally and Simon her new parents, and if she’s honest she doesn’t really want to remember.

Now Sky finds herself in a new country and a new school. Her parents have just accepted new jobs in America, and she’s had to move with them, from London to Colorado.

All is not lost though as Sky begins to make new friends, and also attracts the attention of Zed Benedict, the schools resident motorcycle-riding bad boy. Zed is not what he seems either though- Zed is a savant – he can talk with other savants telepathically, and he can even see a limited view of the future.

Sky is in for a shock though when Zed tells her that she too is a savant, and not just any savant, but Zed’s soulfinder – his other half.

I really enjoyed this book. Everyone was just so normal – even the ones with superpowers! Sky was really down-to-earth, and I don’t know how anyone could fail to fall in love with Zed. Not only was he a bad boy but deep down he was a total sweetheart, and really tried his hardest to keep Sky safe, without pushing the whole soulfinder thing on her too strongly.

The mystery surrounding Sky’s past was just right, and kept you interested and wondering what the secret was, and the mystery surrounding Zed’s family, although unexpected was actually a nice touch.

Overall – a good young adult romance,
7 out of 10.
