Gifted: Better Late Than Never (Young Adult)

Released June 2009

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

The second in the Gifted series, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER focuses on Jenna Kelley. When Jenna's mother checks into rehab, Jenna moves in temporarily with classmate Tracey Devon--catch up here!

Jenna's routine takes a drastic turn when the father she's never met suddenly reappears hoping to become a part of her life. While Tracey is convinced the man has ulterior motives, Jenna's thrilled to finally have a parent who is truly there for her.

If you are new to Marilyn Kaye's Gifted series, the books share the stories of a group of teens with special powers. Tracey has the power of invisibility. Jenna is able to read people's minds. Other powers include being able to take over someone's body, hearing dead people and predicting the future.

The books are truly engaging and hook the reader from the start. My 'tween loves this series and is now anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. I'd love to read about Ken next and hopefully more learn about the very mysterious Carter!

If you enjoy paranormal books like the Twilight series or Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series, don't miss the Gifted series. The author takes everyday teens-jocks, Goths, wallflowers and the popular girls-and places them in situations any teen can relate to.
