Book: Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
Release Date: August 4th, 2011
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK
Description: The novels follow the story of Lila, a 17-year-old with the power of telekinesis, and Alex, her brother’s best friend and long-time love interest. When a mugging on the streets of South London goes horribly wrong and exposes her unique ability, Lila runs away to Southern California, where Alex and her brother are working for a secret organization called The Unit and searching for the men who killed Lila’s mother five years before. Lila unwittingly becomes embroiled in the hunt and a suspenseful murder mystery ensues.
Alright, so a mystery/adventure story about a girl who has the power of telekinesis? You can definitely count me in. I love superpowers, adventure stories and mysteries. Basically, Hunting Lila sounds like a winner to me :)
UPDATE: Some of you have been asking when this is going to be released in the U.S. and unfortunately, there isn't a date set yet. However, you can preorder the U.K. paperback edition from The Book Depository for $8.60 (with free worldwide shipping!).
