The Lovereading4Kids comment

A slick and sexy debut thriller from a talented new author. Losing Lila is the second.


Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson

17-year-old Lila has two secrets she's prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she's been in love with her brother's best friend, Alex, since forever. After a mugging exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust - her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they've found them. In a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realises that she is not alone - there are others out there just like her - people with special powers -and her mother's killer is one of them...

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
