I Can See You
“Emma stuck her face to the window to watch the rain. Lightning in the background drew a fiery specter in the sky while her eyes traced the water droplets running down the pane like tears.” Emma Willis is ten years old and has a secret. She not only inherited her grandmother’s power of sight, she can accomplish much more. Like most children without siblings growing up amongst adults, she is precocious yet at times LONELY. When a murderer is loose in Newark, a maniac with a thirst for killing little girls, she begins to understand why her Granny Dottie called her sight a curse. She will need all her powers to catch a killer and help the people in her life: Detective Hank Apple, her teacher Christina Tyler, and her little family of three. Only … the madman knows who she is!

So, Emma is a gifted 10 year old. Emma gets visions, like I know what’s going to happen before you do. And boy, I kinda feel bad for her, because who wants to deal with that as an adult, much less a little kid. She got it from her paternal grandma, but wait… she can also see visions of the past. I know poor kid right! But her father made sure she knew she could never tell anyone, so she struggles not just with the gift, but with growing up with it bottled up. I kinda hated that, because people who want to dictate things like that never have to know how it feels. Plus, Emma has no idea what she’s doing or how to do it, so it’s a constant battle. This made me wanna hug Emma and hide her away! Emma found her grandmother’s diary, so she at least has a little something to follow.
Now here’s where things get real tricky, someone is a serial killer of little girls, and guess who knows who it is. Poor Emma. She is in real deep, because the killer has found out that she can identify him, so he doesn’t serial kill anymore, he is hell bent on killing Emma no matter what it takes. And then, by a stroke of Luck, and every prayer under the sun, her teacher over hears her and helps to keep her safe. AND her teacher has a detective ex boyfriend. 🙂 So, we get a little adult time, but the main story revolves around Emma. Plus, Emma still can’t even ask her father for help. UGH!
Emma is world class. I mean, I couldn’t do it. And Emma has taken a piece of my heart. She is kind, and sweet, and loving, and mature for her age, but she had to be. And even with all this, she is still almost innocent in nature. The other character who gather around to help her are wonderful. And all of the characters are amazing, and well written, with a depth to them that will make you believe you know them. And the killer, well let’s all say a prayer we don’t know one of those.
The writing is well done, and the plot is magnificent. I can’t call it horror, but I can call it suspense, because I was on the edge of my seat a lot! 😉 I wish all people would be able to take a stand like Emma! And there’s also some romance, and mystery of course. I almost want to say it’s like the Lovely Bones, because there were some similarities, but still quite different, because you see things through Emma’s eyes. It’s a sweet story that has some very dark moments. It’s haunting and enveloping, and makes you cheer all at the same time. Well done! 5 PAWS!
