Considering this is a middle grade novel (Grades 5-9), I actually really liked this book. In fact, I think even older elementary kids would enjoy it. I have read the first 2 and liked them both. They are very quick, very easy reads but do keep me entertained. You certainly need to read the first two books to really get this one but it is written in a way that you could get by without it.

The plot of this one was interesting- the gifted students are being taken, one by one, and no one knows why. K

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow is the thrid book in the Gifted series that follows the lives of nine gifted 13-year-old students. In this book Emily, the girl who has visions of the future, starts seeing her classmates disappearing one by one. When she finally starts to have visions of what might be happening she gets abducted too. With half of the gifted class captive, the ones that are still free will try and find them before anything really bad happens.

I didn't like this book as much as the first

This one was soooo much better! Every character in the story seemed more unveiled in this third book. This time the story was more intriguing and the ending was more of a cliff-hanger which both gave me pleasure and disappointment bc now I have to wait unspecified amount of time for the next one! <3

Pretty damn good I might read the others.
This book was the best book in the series so far with a much more exciting storyline and bringing in how the outside world would react to the childrens superpowers.

In this book the main character is Emily a character who until this book has been living in the background. Emily has until this book has struggled to know whether her preminitions are true or not, but in this book there is a bigger threat to the group than their lack of understanding of their powers. People from the class are being k

The third book of ‘Gifted’ series was the story about Emily Sanders, who can foresee the future events. Unfortunately, the predictions were not always right. Also, she felt guilty with her father’s death. When she was young and not quite sure with her ability, she saw her father will be hit by the car when he left home. However, her father left the house and had an accident. By that, she couldn't easily talk even to her mother about the ability. And one day, she started to see new visions and It ...more

Life is difficult for thirteen-year-old Emily. Not only are her visions consistently fuzzy, but her mother doesn't believe that she even has them.

Add this to the fact that her latest visions show people in her Gifted class at school going missing, and you've got a heap of trouble. So when these visions start to actually come true, she's not sure what to do.

Suddenly, the opportunity to save her friends presents itself. Will she rise to the challeng

This third book is as good as the first two, with Emily having more visions, her accuracy improving, but the element of danger also getting higher. Madame's concerns about others wanting to use the gifted comes true, and it will require most of the group working together to stop something very bad from happening.

Here is where my concern comes in. To me, conspiracies often end up hurting the series. I've seen this in Millenium and especially in the X-Files. It looks like this series may be headed

Another enthralling read from the Gifted series. I loved this book and how the author was able incorporated the threats of exploitation into the plot. Learning Emily's story, and the guilt she has to live with because of her father and how he died, you'll be able to understand a lot more about Emily and why her gift confuses her so much. A weak point is when no one believes in her and it turns out she was wrong to keep her gift hidden in the fear of being made fun of when really she could have ...more

There is nothing really special about the story and the predicament thereof, but it was rather interesting than its predecessor—the cliffhanger ending proved otherwise; it was an unexpected redemption to the seemingly weak, mundane, and boring storyline that the first two books has already established. Moreover, being a keen spelling spectator myself, I noticed that the antagonist’s name was spelled differently at least once. Instead of Clare, it was spelled Claire. Oh well, a measly blunder to ...more

Emily's part of the Gifted class at school. Her specialty is premonitions, even if she doesn't always see the future accurately. She's working on puzzling out their meanings. However, one by one her gifted classmates are disappearing. No one knows anything, except that sometimes Emily has mini visions. When she's given instructions to meet at the corner, she too is taken. She finds her friends together in a house, with food and entertainment. Emily begins to realize they're there for their ...more

I finished my book finally...Yah! It was really good. This is how it went down. some children from the gifted class were kidnapped. They were gonna be used for a bank robbery, using their powers to help. It took a while for the other kids that weren't kidnapped to find the kidnapped. They stopped them right before they succeeded in the robbery. Before one of the people that kidnapped the kids got away Jenna read her mind. She said that the gifted students haved passed their test...all along it ...more

Compared to the other two books that feature as part of this volume, I was somewhat disappointed by this. I struggled to maintain an interest in the story (getting people with powers to rob a bank isn't exactly new), but I think it didn't help that I had read all three books so closely together and so parts I identified with in the previous two lingered and perhaps obscured, or even clarified, my thoughts when it came to reading through these pages. I am intrigued however to see where the story ...more
Emily's gift is seeing the future. But she does not think much of this gift. She see things but does not know when they are going to happen. She sees things that never seem to happen. But her visions of other members of the Gifted class disappearing are very real. And soon she will be added to the missing.

I really enjoy this series. It is fast and fun. In this third book in the series the group starts to organize. Now if we just knew what their mysterious teacher, Madame, seems to know. This is

This is the third book in the series and it is finally starting to get really interesting and enjoyable.

"....I'm worried for the world. And how my gifted students are going to have to save it"

"....classmates were special. They had gifts. Maybe now they'd begin to learn the real purpose of those gifts........there was a reason why they had these unique talents. maybe now in the face of something really big, they'd learn how to use them in the best possible way."

Emily saw the robbery ending in succes but in a way she was right and in others she was wrong. Ken and Jenna got Charles to help them save the others. So Charles took the gun from one of the bad guys and saved Emily. But that bad guy got away. So they went inside the bank to help the others. In the end everything turned out fine and everyone realized that thier gifts are all special and they all help out in serious situations

Wauw at first I already liked the series but it was ok to read other books in between. In this book, book 3 is the best untill now. In this book the characters are coming more to the front. I like that you get to know them better and there powers. This book contains a good amount of beginning excitment and use of gifts. I would like to read more of this series :D

This is the third book in the gifted series. So far this has been my least favorite. I liked the second one better then the first. The main character was timid and the other two books had stronger female leads. It is a cute series though and great for middle schoolers. Totally clean books for anyone and really quick reads.

This was the first one in the gifted series I have read, and I'm ashamed to say I only bought it because my name is emily. However once I started to read it I began to really enjoy it.
I thought the plot line was brilliant, but I would have liked it to be a bit longer.
If your looking for a bit of light reading I would definitely recommend this book!

In the third volume in this series, a group of Gifted students have been kidnapped, and it's up to Emily to use her gift of predicting the future to save the day. Emily's gift and the dilemma it presents (when will her visions come true? if she sees something, can she prevent it?) are thought-provoking. Another fun read for teen girls, though not for a religious audience.

This book is called Gifted: Here Today Gone Tomorrow. I think this is a good book. I think this is a good book because it's about some high school students have special , gifted skills. The authors name is Marilyn Kaye. The good thing about this book is that there's a collection. So it comes in 3 different series. So this is my opinion about this book.
