Chasing Yesterday

by Robin Wasserman

Robin Wasserman does an excellent job writing these books. They are clear, descriptive, and fit the "classic" plot outline. There are still plenty of twists and turns, and the suspense will keep you under the sheets at night with a flashlight. Trust me. J.D. definitey has "problems", fighting her background, her mind, and her "metal powers" but that is what makes her character so lovable. Daniel always is fighting who he is until he meets J.D., and then he realizes that he still is worth something after all that has happened to him, what with his father and all. I still feel devastated in betrayed, for obvious reasons I will not tell here, because that would ruin the book. They are short, but still very good. I got the chills reading this because even if you aren't really into this type of book, it hooks you in. The idea of being able to move things with your mind is like a more modern wish to fly.
