"Pulse" & Bad Miley Cyrus! (a review and counseling for your inner child by Lexi)

Our awesome readers,

You know, Miley's foam finger at the VMA's kinda left my inner child traumatized, so I'm currently watching "Casper" to sooth her, lol. I've missed this movie.

Anywho, there's this novel that I read that you guys will like! It's called Pulse, and it's by Patrick Carman!

Summary: "From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman, a teen fantasy-adventure of epic proportions. In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. Compulsively readable, with thrilling action scenes and a tender love story.

The year is 2051, and the world is still recognizable. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.
Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning, action-filled triumph about the power of the mind—and the power of love." (Thanks, Goodreads!)

This novel was really cool. This idea that there is a second pulse is cool. If you do have it, it means that you are advanced in telekinetics. This idea that it will eventually happen seems surprising, but fun to think about. (As for the "second pulse," do heart murmurs count? lol) Faith has a lot to learn in this novel, including a bit about her own family.

When you find out the secrets that are held in this novel, you won't be able to stop reading, just like I couldn't. This novel couldn't have been written any better than it has been. The plot itself was a lot of fun, and the characters are relatable.

In Conclusion: *chanting* Read it! Read it! Read it!


5/5 Caspers!!! (You know I had to do it.)
