Goodreads Book Review on The Third Eye by Lois Duncan
One of the books I read during the summer was The Third Eye by Lois Duncan. It’s about a girl named Karen and she’s in high school. She's finally part of the popular crowd in school because she’s dating this guy, until a kid in her neighborhood that she is babysitting goes missing. And somehow she can “see” the missing child. They end up finding the missing child. Then she ends up going on this weird adventure to find missing babies and find...more

The book starts out with Karen at a baby-sitting job, and this is definitely a recurring theme in Duncan’s books, like the only job teenage girls can or want to get is babysitting. Another storyline would be greatly appreciated. And the writing is, as per usual, mundane, boring, and very average.
“It’s unnatural,” Karen’s mother had observed accusingly. “When I was your age, I was out at parties every weekend.”
“People don’t have ‘parties’ these days,” Karen had told her. “They have...more

The book I’m reading right now is called the third eye and it’s about an 18 year old girl that could see images or pictures (of missing children) in her head/mind. I really like this book because it’s kind of mysterious and in a way, suspenseful. I recommend this book to people who like to read books that are kind of mysterious. There are 3 great reasons why you should read this book.
The first reason is that it’s suspenseful and you will really like it if you like...more

After checking with neighbors, Karen calls the police but no headway is made in locating Bobby until Karen has a psychic vision that tells her where to look for him. Bobby is rescued from the trunk of a car (where he'd hidden in a game of hide-and-seek, but had been unable to get out again). Impressed by Karen...more
High school senior Karen, who worries that her psychic powers will make her seem different from other people, is frightened at first when a young policeman asks her to use her gift to help the police locate missing children.
As stated in other Lois Duncan book reviews: I really enjoyed Lois Duncan's books; she was probably my favorite YA author. I have always enjoyed books with psychic phenomenon in them - ESP, ghosts, clairvoyance, etc - but it's so difficult to find them writ...more

Kindle or nook without a book...aaaahhhh oh noooo! I started to get the shakes from reading withdrawal! I had a two hour wait time and While mid panic I remembered there were a couple of bags of books from my daughters shelves in the back of the car waiting to be dropped of at the local library for donation. I'm glad I hadn't dropped them off yet. I went through them and there is a whole collection of Lois Duncan books so I chose this one. It...more
I got the digital library version of this - updated with references to cell phones and the Internet. The story itself retained certain marks of 80s YA fiction though: the protagonist's only relationships are with her parents, boyfriend and employers. How are you supposed to flesh out a young character without looking beyond the love interest and her babysitting job? What is she interested in? What sets her apart aside from the psychic abilities the book focuses on? Lois Duncan's writing can be...more
Lois Duncan has crafted Karen's supernatural psychic abilities into a realistic setting that delves into stressful parent-child relationships, duties and responsibilities, and the sometimes daunting task of growing up.
