Daisy has an electrifying secret that could save her life—or kill her
High school sophomore Daisy Jones is just trying to get by unnoticed. It doesn’t help that she’s the new girl at school, lives in a trailer park, and doesn’t even own a cell phone. But there’s a good reason for all that: Daisy has a secret, unpredictable power—one only her best friend, Danielle, knows about.    
                                                                                         Despite her “gift” (or is it a curse?), Daisy’s doing a good job of fitting in, and a gorgeous senior named Kevin even seems interested in her! But when Daisy tries to help Vivi, a mysterious classmate in a crisis, she soon discovers that her new friend has a secret of her own. Now Daisy and her friends must deal with chilling dreams and messages from the beyond. Can Daisy channel the power she’s always tried to hide, before it’s too late? 
Extra features include:  A short graphic novel telling Vivi’s story
Danielle’s journal, revealing her deepest thoughts •   Lyrics and video links for Kevin’s music (songs composed by Fredrik Larsson, otherwise known as YouTube sensation FreddeGredde)

This story is mainly about a girl named Daisy who has an extraordinary power, she is electric. She can mess with any electrical device; and has to practice yoga and meditation in order to be able to control her ability. 
This book surprised me. I went in expecting it to be mediocre and it was great. I loved everything about it. I couldn’t put it down!!! 🙂 The puzzle to solve the creepy dreams the girls had and the twist at the climax of the story was great!
Well I don’t want to give the story away, but it was quite good. It started out really slow, and I kept thinking, how is this all going to work together. There is the new kid, Kevin, who has a history of being in a metal institute. Danielle and Daisy who believe they are reincarnated and are both having the same dreams from another life. And Vivi, who communicates with a ghost, but she can communicate with him better if Daisy is around, since Daisy’s electricity helps him to channel.
This is a great coming of age story with some paranormal aspects. Even though Daisy has powers that normal teenagers do not many of the challenges she faces are the same that other teens face. Such as fitting in, making friends, falling in love, and finding out whom you truly are.
Overall, I would recommend this book to all young adults who love to read. The Gift by Andrea Buchanan was a treat to read.  I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from this author!
