Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The details about how the gift works are fascinating, including seeing the future as a distribution of probabilities. The idea that you inherit the gift from your actual family not your biological one was amusing.

Con: There isn't a real story here. Kayla isn't really trying to do much of anything; things just happen.

  1. I think it was clever to put the second half of a story about premonitions in future tense. However, it was still distancing and odd to read.
