I first read this book when I was 15 years old, I'm now 24 and have read it a couple hundred times. The amazing part is I still find it captivating.
The story is about a girl named Amy Kaslov who's abusive and alcoholic Father kills her Mother in front of her.
Somewhere in Amy is the power to make people do things against their will. She struggles with the knowledge of this and many other starteling discoveries.
Don't take my word for it though, get the book right away, I assure you the surprise ending alone is worth $6.95 and much more.

I got this book from some friends of my parents whop where cleaning out their libary, and they gave me some books... I am normaly a fan of thrillers/action books (I'm a 14-years old boy) but I started reading it, I liked it so much that I raced trough it so fast, that it was out the morning of the next day... The rest of the day I had problems concentrating me on things, beacouse the book touched me in a way, only few books did before... I really recomend it to everyone, it's a really nice book, only the end is too sad for me :-( SO GO GET IT!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Amy goes from seeing her abusive father kill her mother with a hammer and into a foster home where she's being terrorized by the sociopathic son. The only thing she's got going for her is a special psi ability which helps her survive.

This book has an interesting premise that's trapped in extremely long descriptions of things like a throw-away character's facial hair, wallpaper patterns, and other mundane details that drag the story down. The shrinks constantly making Amy out to be some kind of monster when she's the victim gets old fast, especially when there is justice for abusive jerks and anti-social pervs being dealt out as appropriate.

Overly long, poorly paced, Amy Girl is the sort of book you read when there's nothing else around.

I must have read this book back when I was about 12 or 13 also, I am 20 now. I discovered it in my mom's bookshelf. I've read it 3times already and I want to read it again. It's an easy read but it's very compelling with a lot of imagery. The story about this little girl will touch your heart. You will wish that you could jump in the book and save her. Highly Recommended.

I, like many others, read this book when I was about 15 years old. I am now 33 and I still think of this book often. My cousin and best friend, Nicole, passed this book on to me to read. She passed away when we were 19 and this book remains in my life as a reminder of our friendship and kinship. This book grips you from the beginning and refuses to let you go even when you have finished reading it. I truly love this book and am glad to know that it has been a wonderful read for others like me.
