really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult-fiction
Read in January, 1985

from Amazon: When the old woman died, she left her grandchild Nancy with the extraordinary gift of magic. Nancy can read people's minds, know their thoughts, and make them do what she wants. Will she use her gift for good, or satisfy her own selfish desire?

I'm not sure how old I was when I first read this, but I know I was a young adult and I still own the book. 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 written well. Lois Duncan is one of those rare authors who manages to write about these topics convincingly.
