Have you ever heard of somebody who could see the future, but didn’t want to? Or someone who could give away that same ability (and many others), but also didn’t want to?
Have you ever heard of somebody who could see the future, but didn’t want to? Or someone who could give away that same ability (and many others), but also didn’t want to? And what do you think would happen if their paths crossed? Well, in the book Touched by Cyn Balog, that is what happened. Two extraordinary people happened to meet, and strange things happened after that.
Meet Nick Cross, a junior in high school who has a crazy thing going on, he can see the future. But it comes with a price. To make sure that the future will happen, he has to follow exactly what his brain tells him. But it is not like he wanted to be this way, it happened to his mom when she was pregnant with him. Somehow, he got it too.
One day, he heads off to his job as a lifeguard, when he sees a girl that is tying her shoe and a truck is about to back into her. He rushes to her side, helps her out of the way, and then they have a short little conversation. He suddenly feels a large pain in his head, he turns toward the beach. A small crowd has gathered around the water. A little girl just drowned, and if he had listened to his head, he would have saved her.
The girl (that Nick DID save) and Nick are suddenly caught in each other’s worlds, and work together to change what happened. Nick learns strange things about his father, and is soon faced with a vision that he cannot change no matter what he does. Just to warn you, this book contains some situations for older audiences, but it is still an amazing book.
Touched is a book combined with suspense and surprises, and it will leave you shocked at every turn. By the end, you will be breathless. So if you need a new book to read for school, or just want something to snuggle up with on a boring afternoon, you just found one. Have fun reading!
