Awash in Talent
Blurb (from Goodreads):
So much Talent can kill you.
Welcome to Providence, Rhode Island, home of telekinetics, firestarters, and psychics!
Emily can’t escape her annoyingly Talented telekinetic healer sister without committing a crime.
Kelly must escape her pyrokinesis school and bring Emily’s sister to Boston—her mother’s life depends on it.
Appointments with Emily might drive her psychic therapist insane.
With so much Talent, sometimes it’s all you can do to function in an un-Talented society.

Awash in Talent by Jessica Knauss

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Awash in Talent “We have to take you in for assault and attempted murder.”

This book consisted of 3 stories about 3 different characters with paranormal abilities.

The first story was about Emily and Beth. Emily was Beth’s older sister, and didn’t really care for the way her parents gave Beth so much special attention. It then turned out that Beth had telekinesis and healing powers, while Emily seemed to have an unhealthy obsession with someone at her school who was already married!

The second story was about a girl called Kelly, who had pyrokinesis and wanted to change schools, and also met Beth and made use of her healing powers.

The third story was about Emily’s therapist, who was also a psychic.

These stories were okay, but I preferred the first one. The second and third were a bit of a disappointment after the first story, as I expected the story to continue following Emily and Beth. It was interesting the way that Emily and Beth popped up in the other stories, but it just wasn’t what I was expecting.

6 out of 10
