Review: Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson


17-year-old Lila has two secrets she's prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she's been in love with her brother's best friend, Alex, since forever. After a mugging exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust - her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organization called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they've found them. In a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realizes that she is not alone - there are others out there just like her - people with special powers -and her mother's killer is one of them.

My Thoughts:

OKY … this was an enjoyable and fun read. I liked this book so good. 

The story is placed in the current century where our heroine 17 year old Lila has the power to move object with her mind … although she not so keen on her power … but when she first discover her ability she start to learn how to use it.

Then one day two teenage boys attack her on her way home in London ... and in that moment her power got out of control and she got so scared that if this happen again she may hurt someone or even worse people will find out about her ability and she will turn to find herself a lab rat so she run to US to her brother Jack and his best friend Alex who happen to be the love of her life.

After she went to her brother a lot if things happened … she found out that her brother and Alex where hunting people who’s like her people with special ability  … and the people the catch no one ever return … what worse is that the person how killed her mother when she was 12 year old is a person with special ability.

Furthermore,  Lila found out that the unit where her brother and Alex work aren’t telling the whole truth of what they really do to people like her when they catch them or what are they really are and then she will meet people like her who are good and bad … what will Lila do? Is she going to fight for her family and love or will she choose to go to live with her kind.

Mystery, suspicion and romance in one book :D

Rating: 4/5
