9780007132744: Gifted Touch (Fingerprints, Book 1)

Rae can read people’s thoughts by touching their fingers and their fingerprints. But someone else knows about her powers – someone who is out to kill her…

When 16-year-old Rae first hears the voices in her head, she thinks she is going mad. When she returns to school after a summer of psychiatric help, she is ostracised by her friends and her boyfriend. The only friends she can talk to are Yana, whom she met in the hospital, and Anthony, the dyslexic tough guy she regularly locks horns with in her therapy group. When Rae is nearly killed by a bomb set in the girls’ bathroom, it is Anthony who helps her work out that she isn’t mad – she has a special gift. But Anthony is the prime suspect for setting the bomb in the first place – and incriminating evidence is found in his bag…

Who can Rae trust? Who is out to kill her?

From the Back Cover:


Sometimes, when I touch things, words fill my head. Words that feel like thoughts – thoughts that are inside me…but not mine.

I used to think I was crazy.

But now I'm starting to wonder if there's a reason for all the voices that tangle together in my mind. And if I'm right, then it's not my sanity I'm worried about.

It's my life.
