In The Unsacred Gift, we meet Sissy. Sissy was born with the gift of being able to see the way people will die. She is very accurate. This first happened when she was six years old and her sister Misty went missing. Her entire life she isolates herself to avoid contact with people so that she will not see the horrific ways people die. Her life was moving along in this very isolated way until she goes home for the weekend for her grandmother’s birthday party. It is during this weekend that she begins to have horrible dreams so real they are leaving remnants behind. Sissy begins to feel as if she is going crazy. But, when all is said and done it becomes a weekend of love, enlightenment and sadness. Sissy discovers things that will allow her to change her world and accept herself for who she is.
In general this was a good book. It seemed pretty short, but it was a nice complete read. I wasn’t expecting the ending at all. I knew it was gonna be something big, but was kind of disappointed when the twist erased everything that had been going on. The book felt like it could have bordered on an Adult book if the author wanted to take it in that direction. I was a bit distracted by a bunch of spelling and grammatical errors. I think the editor should have looked more closely. But, aside from the spelling and grammar, the story really stood up on its own. I was even thinking about it days later. I was thinking how frustrating and mad I was about the ending, but a good book will do that to you. It sticks with you. If I had one wish for this book (besides a different ending) I would have liked it to end a bit more thoroughly. The story kinda just dropped off after the twist. All in all it was a good Young Adult read and I will probably read it again…just to get mad all over again. 🙂
