Review: Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra




Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra
Review by: Lauren
Also reviewed for: TeensReadToo


Kara is haunted by the day her father passed away and she died for eleven minutes. She wakes up and finds that she now
has a unique ability to see signs on people that relate to something that will happen to them. The puzzles often don't make
sense for awhile, but she still has to keep at it or suffer severe headaches and the fact that she might be allowing someone
to come to harm.

As the story progresses, Kara starts a relationship with a guy who helps her out of danger during a gang fight, starts losing
touch with a best friend who has secrets of her own, and must figure out the new "vision" involving a gun before someone
is hurt.

INVISIBLE TOUCH is a unique storyline full of bi-cultural characters that are all well-rounded individuals. This book will
have readers flipping the pages as fast as they can to find out the next step in the puzzle, as well as the search to find out
more about Kara.

This book shows that when you're always looking to the future, you often forget to deal with the past.

An amazing, touching novel that deals with big issues in an original context.
