My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Gwen Frost is your average teenage girl going to high school. Accept she has a gift hand down from a gypsy ancestor, psychometry. She can see a persons memories by touching them or objects they have touched. She is not the only one with the gift both her mom and grandmother have versions of the same gift.
One day after gym class, Gwen touches her friend Paige's hair brush and is horrified by the images she sees of Paige suffering from horrible abuse. After telling her mom, a police officer, Paige is save but Gwen's mother is killed in a car accident while driving home after working late. Now Gwen's grandmother has enrolled her in the exclusive and strange Mythos Academy.
This is a short story that begins before Gwen is sent to Mythos Academy. Its sets us up for the first book Touch of Frost. It gives a clear understanding of Gwen and her gift so you understand her better when we meet up with her next.
