Julie | 4 comments Looking for a book I read in the mid 80's. I'm thinking it is a YA but not sure. It involves a young girl who can hear others telepathically. She is on a quest for a silent city where everyone communicates telepathically. She is "helped" along by a man (30's?) who is really from her future (maybe a husband?) but she doesn't know this. Can't remember much else - maybe she can use throwing knives as a weapon. I think the man used some kind of head sheild to keep her from reading his thoughts. I think the girl may grow up to be some kind of scientist. The man may have some kind of ship where he periodically leaves her. Thanks for the help!

Julie--if you bump the thread up once every month or two, you will stand a better chance of getting it found. That way new members will see it and older members will have it in the forefront of their mind when they are out and about.

My idea about this specific type of thread is that it should stay in Abandoned, since it seems like the OP has abandoned it (and really abandoned it for quite awhile, at least two years, not a year or 18 months), but people should still feel free to solve it. Then if people arrive at a solution which seems convincing to everyone, we can call it Solved without the OP's participation.

Or, if anyone wants to message the OP or leave them a comment somewhere about this thread and see if they respond, that's fine.

I don't want to be so inflexible about it though that people get riled up.
