Safe House by Meg Cabot
(Started: September 14, 2010; Finished: September 17, 2010)

JESS MASTRIANI was on vacation when Amber went missing. Most people blame Jess for Amber's brutal slaying, but how could Jess -- even with her psychic ability to find anyone, anywhere -- have stopped the cheerleader from turning up dead, without having known she was even missing? When yet another cheerleader disappears, Jess has a chance to redeem herself. If she can just find the girl before it's too late, maybe Jess will finally have a chance to be part of the in crowd. Except that it's starting to look like being in might just get you -- not to mention your loved ones -- killed. So much for popularity. (From Goodreads)

Disclaimer: This is an old review (published last September 16, 2010) but this version is improved and edited.

I actually find this book pretty cool than the previous one. The storyline was actually pretty common and realistic because of the events in the story which made it predictable. But to my surprise, it did creep me out. I guess it's due to the fact that my imagination is always “fired up” when I'm reading and I have a habit of putting myself in the shoes of the protagonist. This habit actually helps the reader understand the events more because you feel like you're also going through the protagonist's situation. I also want to mention how Jess's power evolved. It was impressive that's why I'm looking forward to the next book.

Anyway, as I've mentioned, the events were more intense in this book than the first two. Murder, kidnappings, and torture were all over the place, and it was up to Jess to solve it. It's riveting and I can't put it down.

Love lots, xx
