Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson

ISBN: 9780857071958
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 318

17-year-old Lila has two secrets she's prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she's been in love with her brother's best friend, Alex, since forever. Or thereabouts. After a mugging on the streets of South London goes horribly wrong and exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust - her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they've found them. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hunting Lila! It was wonderfully written, and as a result had me hooked from the very beginning. I really liked the concept of this book. Before reading this book I had never read a paranormal book where not only were all the supernaturals considered as criminals, but where the paranormal part of the book took a backseat to more important "normal" aspects of the story. My favourite character was Lila, because of her stubbornness and determination. I really like the cover, it's inkeeping with the story within.
