Saturday Reviews #5

With a wonderful influx of books, I find that I have to pick which ones I review. I don't like doing that. I want to review more. With the definition and exploration of a review on this post, I present this week's Saturday reviews!

The Medusa Project:  Hunted by Sophie McKenzie
Release Date:  January 2011
Publisher:  Simon & Schuster UK
320 pages, Paperback
Review copy

Children's Fiction
Contents:  Thriller, special powers, friendship and crazy people.


Summary from Simon & Schuster UK

Dylan, the daughter of the scientist who created the Medusa gene for psychic powers, has never felt she really fits into the crime-fighting Medusa Project. But then she makes a discovery about her father's death which changes everything. As she and the other Medusa teens search for the truth, Dylan meets Harry - a boy who seems to know more about Dylan's past than she does. But can Dylan trust him? While Dylan searches for the mysterious legacy that her father has left her from beyond the grave, her dad's killer closes in. But just how far is the murderer prepared to go to keep Dylan from finding out the truth?


Nayuleska's Thoughts:
I have read other books by Sophie, but none in this series. I felt up to speed with the summaries. Dylan is so likable because she is moody and wants to isolate herself from the group, which is normal for a teen. Her attitude leads to mistakes, and a chilling revelation at the end has me staring at the empty space on my shelf where the next book will be.

Final Rating:
