Life can get pretty complicated for any seventeen-year-old girl, but for a home-schooled telepathic black girl trying to survive in a prestigious private school in small-town Jonesborough, Tennessee, it can be maddening – especially when her telepathic father keeps eavesdropping on her thoughts!
Jaycie Lerner’s family isn’t the usual mom-dad-kid setup. Jaycie’s mom’s MIA, but Allison, her personal live-in ‘trainer,’ is more than a mom, with her own special abilities, like being able to lift cars and run incredibly fast. And Jaycie’s godfather John is more than persuasive – he can literally convince anyone to do anything.
As far as the rest of the world’s concerned, Jaycie’s on the outside looking in. The townsfolk love Jaycie’s pediatrician father, but she doesn’t fit in with ‘normal’ kids, and she doesn’t really want to. Most of her free time is spent training to keep her telekinetic and telepathic powers under control. But there’s one thing she can’t control – and that’s her feelings, especially when her best friend Matt is nearby. If only he knew what she was truly capable of...
Everything seems to be status quo for Jaycie until she receives a cryptic message from a stranger and meets a very unusual girl new to Jonesborough. Then all hell breaks loose!
Darwins Children is a required taste. It’s full of super powered chicks and lots of action. Ok so it’s like chocolate… chocolate is still a required taste. Sure the people who hate chocolate can barely be called human but… of never mind. I personally love chocolate Darwin’s Children.
It’s a wonderful tale about a super powered girl named Jaycie finding her place in the paranormal world. This story has powerful expertly written characters that you will fall in love with from the start. Between Jaycie who knows who she is, and doesn't take crap from not one, and fragile broken shy Haylee this book will have you smiling one chapter and wanting to cry the next. The story has some parts where it's a little slow but it's a great story over all!
