A while ago I read The Gifting by K.E. Ganshert, which is the first book of the Gifting Trilogy. Since then I've read book #2, The Awakening, and I'm about to delve into book #3 (The Gathering). I really love this series and I can't wait to read book three. My mother and sister have read all three and they both really enjoyed them as well.
This trilogy is an excellent read if you're like me are sick and tired of the usual blah that seems to make up a lot of Young Adult books these days.
The books are set slightly in the future, and tell of a world that we may find ourselves living in sooner than we'd like to think. The book is written from the POV of a girl named Tess. Tess is able to see into the supernatural world... and in a world where no one believes that the supernatural exists, she's considered crazy. The story follows Tess as she tries to find answers and discover if there are others like her. It's fast-paced, enticing, and filled with relatable and well-written characters. It keeps you wanting to read more and more and more. (Not to mention: there's zero language and very little romance.)
To put it simply, I'd definitely give the Gifting Series 5 out of 5 stars for upping the game of Young Adult novels and providing something new, unique, and interesting for teens to read.

I hope you guys enjoyed this review.
Thanks for reading!
(P.S. I know it's been forever since I've updated "Wings", but I decided to wait a bit longer. Things are a little crazy right now due to the fact that "Infiltration" comes out next Saturday. However, new "Wings" installments will be coming your way the first weekend in August. )
Have a great day!
