Emma Willis is a ten year old who has special abilities she inherited from her Grandmother Dottie; her father's mother. Emma can see things that have not happened yet and she can also see the past. Emma is very talented and powerful but her father told her a long time ago that she has to keep her abilities to herself. She is not allowed to talk about or tell anyone what she is can do. He has no idea what Emma goes through day after day; things that a child should never have to live through. Emma has no idea how to use her powers or what all she can do. Emma has to live with her secret and she has to keep it all bottled up inside. If it were not for her Grandmother's dairy or book of shadows that has been passed down from generation to generation that explains how to use her powers then she would not have a clue as to how to control her powers or what to do with them.
Someone is going around killing little girls in Emma's town and she knows who it is. When the killer learns that she can identify him, he stops looking for other little girls to kill. Now he is always hot on her tail. He has to get to her and kill her before she can find out who exactly he is and then tell the police. Emma is lucky that her teacher over hears a conversation between Emma and one of her best friends Tommy. Her teacher steps up to the home plate to help Emma to stay safe. Her teacher once dated a detective who works at the police department downtown. Emma learns that she can trust her teacher and the detective and knows that they will help her find who is after her. Both of them have promised Emma that they will not tell her father that she is helping them to find who is killing the little girls. Hopefully they will find and arrest the killer before it is too late.
Emma is a very smart and mature for a ten year old. But I guess if all ten years olds had experienced what she has then they would probably mature early as well. But Emma does still acts her age at times which is not a bad thing. No it is a good thing, I mean when she acts her age she is still a very kind and loving person.
There is so much in I Can See You that I can relate to. Some with Emma and some with other characters in the book. There is so many twist and turns that at times you don't know which way is up. Joss Landry takes you on the ride of your life with I Can See You. You get a whole lot of mystery, romance, friendship and family time too. Even Emma has a boyfriend well Tommy is not exactly her boyfriend but he is her friend and he is a boy. Little Emma is a very couragous little girl. She stands tall and brave when she gets herself into a little trouble sometimes.
I Can See You was a book that when I started, I had trouble putting down. I probably would have finished it in one sitting if I had gotten the chance.
Emma Willis is so likeable. She is a such a strong ten year old who is mature beyond her years. She has inherited a special power form her grandmother which she is learning more about.
She proves to be quite strong, especially when it comes to helping Detective Hank try to find the killer of the girls.
I very much enjoyed the mystery and suspense which the author sewed through the novel. I also enjoyed the characters, from their complexity to literalness.
I truly believe that this would make an excellent television show, movie or mini series and I could see this being shown visually.
I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Landry's work, thank you for the opportunity!
What I also enjoyed was that how the author masterfully interweaved some important social issues into the story, such as one’s choice between work and relationships; prejudice concerning one’s partner’s social standing while considering a possible future together; domestic violence and abuse and how it might influence unstable minds, and many more.
It was indeed a great, compelling read which I highly recommend to everyone. Five stars.
It keeps your attention. A mystery, full of suspense.
Murder, romance, mystery, and much more. You won't want to put the book down.
She inherited her grandmother's power of sight. A murderer is loose in Newark, who has a thirst for killing little girls, she now understands why her Grandmother called her sight a curse.
