Touching Darkness

Title: Midnighters #2 – Touching Darkness
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Genre: Fantasy/Suspense
Pages: 328
Rating: @@@@@
Price: $16

Summary: Only two weeks after she learned about the secret hour, Jessica Day and the other Midnighters are once again in danger. Dess has been ‘mapping out’ the secret hour, and came across the best surprise yet – one of the old Midnighters. Secrets abound, but how do you keep secrets from a mind reader?

Opinion: Scott Westerfeld quickly rose up to my favorite authors list as soon as I read Uglies, and Touching Darkness did not disappoint. Creating and adjusting the rules of the secret hour has to be hard, but Scott has made them real and believable, with real teen reactions and romances.

    What a great blog! I couldn't derive half the fantastic ideas that you come up with.
    My garden statue site is off topic but still noteworthy. Can you teach this kind of creative thinking? Is it something you were born with? Keep the fabulous ideas coming!
    Lets say a prayer for our boys in Iraq and hope for the best!!
