Title: Chasing Power
By: Sarah Beth Durst
Publishing Date: October 14th 2014
Lies, secrets, and magic — three things that define Kayla's life.

Sixteen-year-old Kayla plans to spend her summer hanging out on the beach in Santa Barbara and stealing whatever she wants, whenever she wants it. Born with the ability to move things with her mind — things like credit cards, diamond rings, and buttons on cash registers — she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up a safety net, enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again. Well, that, and the thrill of using her secret talents.

But her summer plans change when she's caught stealing by a boy named Daniel — a boy who needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it. Daniel has a talent of his own. He can teleport, appearing anywhere in the world in an instant, but he lies as easily as he travels. Together, they embark on a quest to find and steal an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago, all to rescue Daniel's kidnapped mother. But Kayla has no idea that this rescue mission will lead back to her own family — and to betrayals that she may not be able to forgive... or survive

Magic, teleporting, suspense, blackmail, and stealing ancient incantations... Sold! I love the idea of this book. Teleporting back in time to find ancient incantations that are written on three indestructible stones how cool does that sounds? If done right I think this book will be fun to read mostly because of the time traveling to the magical past. Our main character Kayla is having to do this all with a boy that lies so good you never know what's true or a big fat lie. How can she trust someone that cant even tell her the truth? Her life sounds like its really held in this boys hands. Oh and it seems like Kayla's family may be part of the kidnapping of Daniels mother. There just sounds like so much epicenes going on in this book I can't handle the potential this book has! What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
