    1. This was a YA paranormal story about a boy who could talk to ghosts.Ken was an okay character, although I did think he should be a little careful about telling people what he could do, especially when he didn t know the person well The storyline in this was about Ken attending a s ance and meeting a boy whose father had died in a car accident The boy s father had purchased a winning lottery ticket before he died, and the boy and his family were unable to find it, so Ken wanted to help them.The [...]


    2. Don t let the 2 star rating fool you.It was a good book, considering it is not really my type of books.The reason I actually read it is because my friend told me made me do so.It s not 2 star material becuase I did not dislike the book, yet I can t bring myself to give it any.

    5. I actually would give this a 3.5, but in math we round up so I shall do that here too To be honest, I wasn t a major fan of all the books in this series I never got too into it, but each book has been getting better This story is about Ken, who is my second favorite character He is really relatable and a decent guy His predicament sucks though best friend dead, can now speak to ghosts in his head It was really interesting to learn about how he became the way he was Though his part was cool, I h [...]



    6. So this book definetely got me back into the series, but it also made me officially hate a character During the first three books, I could deal with Amanda, she helped Tracey, she had her short love that made her a little bit sympathetic, and in the third, she wasokay, but I officially hate her in the fourth I ve never hated a main character this much, besides Zoey from HON I really tried to like her, since she was technically the first main character, but when you keep secrets that could mean t [...]


    7. Finders Keepers by Marilyn Kaye is a sequel to the Gifted series In this book, a character named Ken Preston starts to hear people who are dead talk, which is entirely stuck inside Ken s head, and this all started when Ken Preston injured his head I find this truly amazing that you can listen to dead people talk inside your head, but I find it a lot creepy That is very unusual in reality whenever people injure their heads Throughout this book, I felt like this character, Amanda had liked Ken Pre [...]

    10. The fourth entry into Marilyn Kaye s Gifted series shares a view into Ken Preston s life If you ve missed any of the previous books, they do work as stand alone novels However, I ve been reading them from the start and can t imagine not wanting to get to know all of the students powers.Ken Preston is one of the Gifted His ability to converse with the dead drives him crazy, but, at the same time, also intrigues him because he has the power to help those who have passed on resolve their unfinished [...]


    11. This book was a good addition to the series building on the events of the previous book we are getting to know the members of the gifted class one by one The main character in this book is Ken, a guy who used to be popular but has become isolated since the death of his best friend and his gift which appeared shortly after Ken has been almost a silent character before this book much like the others but with this series it seems that once a character has had a book based on them that they become a [...]

    13. I found that there were too many gifted characters in this book to keep up with There are only a few that I can actually tell you from memory what their special talents are I realize, however, that this is the 4th book in the series, so perhaps if I had read the first 3, I would have a better grasp on the characters.As far as the storyline goes, it was all right But again, I didn t get the significance of Serena and the references to things that had happened to the group in the past went over my [...]


    14. Ken has only had his gift for a short time Ever since his recent head injury, he has been contacted by the dead He wants to find out about this talent and see if there are people like him A mysterious note lures him to a seance where he finds a kindred soul and a child in need At least that is what he thinks.I enjoy this series I like the characters and the way the group is coming together In this book we get some hints about the people who are trying to use the gifted class Thhis story was p [...]

    20. I do like this whole series And I do like that the author shows how sweet hearted the main character is I just really hated Amanda at the end Yeah, they were being rather mean to her But is she really so childish as to keep such dire information from them Apparently so Over the past three books, she s been slowly seeming to change It looks like she hasn t changed at all, which kind of makes me mad.


    21. The book is an amazing story about a boy who cant talk and thats how he figures out his gift and 2 charters are to busy on wanting to lose their gift to be normal people that they dont know how good their gifts could be good for the world this book is a really good one if u like things like gifts of telekinesis or bodysnatching also talking to the dead then this book is good for you.i dont read that much but ik enough to know this book is fantastic mind blowing and excitement on every chapter.


    22. YAWN I was ok with it about a year ago, but now, it is turning out to be a big flop I guess the author was too bold, and struck a little too soon Or, I outgrown this thing I mean the first book was allright, the second was better, the third had the same quality as the first, but this book, the fourth, well it s o.k But, for people who are about 12 or younger can read it, and possibly be crazy over it I m just saying.


    23. En sonunda i ler ciddile meye ba lad dedim Serinin en iyi kitab demeyece im nk hen z seriyi bitirmedim puaaBu aralar kafam ok g zel Kendimi k sa ve basit kitaplarla avutuyorum yi geliyor mu Kesinlikle Sizde yap n te saatler ge irmeyi ve her saniye kitap okudu um g nleri zledim San r m y lba ndan sonra sahalara geri d nece im puhaha.Ben ka ay m sizi ok rahats z ettim.


    24. Ken got an invitation to a sience and he tried to help one of the people there because he felt bad for them He figured since he could talk to dead people he could help But his classmates in his gifted class suspected something wrong So they follow him and they find out the leader of the sience was a scam artist and she was using him All in all everything turned out okay Thanks to Ken s classmates he is safe and nobody else found out about their gifts.


    25. Although, I am afraid of ghosts, afterlife, dead things, dead people, curses, wandering souls O.O.d so onter reading this book, having a gift to talk to dead people doesn t seem all that bad because one my most favorite dramas had a main character, who could also talk to ghosts but still, I love the Gifted series, especially the corresponding book covers, they look sick


    26. La primera pareja de la saga o al menos que podr a darse Ya de por s me agradaba Amanda pero comprender que podr a cumplirse su deseo de estar con Ken era motivador para seguir leyendo En cuanto a Ken, era agradable saber su punto de vista aunque tambi n hacia querer entrar al libro para que este tome las decisiones correctas.


    27. Although quick reads, these books seem to get be getting better I am interested in what happens in the next book What threatens one of us threatens all of usWe need to think of ourselves as a team And each of them dealt with their gifts in different ways.


    28. I am on page 51 right now and whats been going on so far is Amanda s going to be out of school for a few days People has been teasing her about her gift Ken got a mystery letter in his locker from somebody talking about did he wanna meet other people with his gift.


    29. Ken in yetene ini nas l kazand n reniyoruz.Bu sefer k t ki iler onu kullanmaya al yor.Bu insanlar kim diye reniyor Amanda bir eyler ama kendine sakl yor.Her kitapta bu k z olmak zorunda m yaa P
