Read in January, 2005

This story was captivating for me, and as well as being exciting and fun to read, I thought it had really important underlying questions about the way people interact and how they're motivated, and lamenting a sort of sickness that seems to permeate society. I just love the way that those messages are woven through a story about a girl with extended--almost psychic--senses. Those sorts of stories are usually very introverted and self-centred, so this is the most wonderful portrayal I've seen of powers that allow people to see beyond their own mind, because in this story Alyzon's sudden acquisition of powers actually lead her to learn more about the world and reach into it. I love reading this, again and again and again.
