I met Mimi and the gang in the first book of the series, "The Seventh," and I knew they were going to have problems with one member's family considering their background. I already knew what was going to happen, so I wasn’t surprised when it was confirmed in "The Rift."
During break, they each looked into their powers more and started practicing. I was in awe of some of the things they could do when they got back. Drew and Mimi are still kicking, which is just cute. Each member was made for the group but there are some who I really just want to smack. If they’re not arrogant as all get out, they judge or think they know everything. Me being the person that I am, it gets annoying very fast.
The plot was good and the sentences flowed well. Mimi’s gift gets better and better, but with it also comes a price that not only affects her but others as well. It was very interesting seeing them try to figure out what works and what doesn't when it comes to their "gifts", as Ms. Deering likes to call them. I still think out of all of them, Mimi’s gift is the best because really when you think about it, who wouldn’t want to talk to ghosts if they got the chance?
I also loved the fact that Wasley gives a preview of the next book in the series, "The Deluge." I can’t wait to read it.
“I longed for normality. Even our own, off-the-wall brand of normality.”
She’s finally got things together. Mimi’s dating a hot guy and has a place in the school’s Gifted Program with her awesome friends. Yes, she still attracts the dead. But there’s only one ghost these days, and he doesn’t seem to have an awful lot to say.
Just when Mimi’s life is looking pretty good for the first time in years, the unthinkable happens ... one of the seven gifted teens is torn from their close-knit group. The unity of their circle shattered, things begin to go terribly wrong. It’s ruining their focus—and with the threat of the Astarion cult growing stronger each day, the gifted seven need all the focus they can muster.
In The Seventh, Mimi found her place in a circle of seven extraordinary teenagers. In The Rift, she must face what happens when the circle of seven is broken.
