From the author of the Zellie Wells trilogy comes FOUND (Penny Black #1)the first book in a whole new NA trilogy set in the Society world.
Discover what happened to Zellie, Avery, Melody, and Ben!
And meet Penny Black, a girl with a past that can see the future.
Penny Black hasn’t had it easy. Just about everything you’d expect to happen to a harassed foster-kid turned junkie has happened to Penny. Add in the mysterious power to rewind time, conducting events around her, and it’s a wonder she held up on the streets for so many years. Now, at seventeen, the New Society has found her. Finally, Penny is where she belongs. But that doesn’t stop the visions, or the need to protect the victims shown to her.
Wyatt Adams is excited and intrigued when his sister Melody assigns him to be Penny’s Lookout. Being the youngest, and hopelessly ordinary in the family that created the New Society, has left Wyatt feeling like he has a lot to prove — and Penny is a big deal. She’s got abilities that surpass any he’s seen before…and pretty much every quality he looks for in a girlfriend, but no one needs to know about that, especially Penny
This book had a somewhat original story line, a young homeless woman with amazing abilities has been tracked down and brought to a special school to help her learn how to deal and develop her time stopping and psychic abilities.
Apparently this story is a spin off, I have not read the Zellie chronicles but after seeing a small glimpse of this world that Stacey has created I am looking forward to reading them.
The characters were well developed with lots of action although I thought that the story line sometimes was hard to follow and a bit slow, it wasn’t till I found out that this story is a spin off that it started to make sense. The cover was what originally drew me to found, I loved the simplicity of it and it made me want to know more about who the girl was and what was her story? I loved Penny’s story, how she came from the streets and fended for herself.
Although the whole boarding school story has been done to death, (even though I still enjoy them.) Stacey has managed to bring new dynamics to the story with new elements such as being a school for psychics and their look outs. I am not sure what the depth of the story is or much history of the school, I am assuming all that is talked about in the original stories.
Overall I enjoyed it as a short entertaining read, but I would recommend starting at the original stories first.
