Glow Girl: Book One in the Droit Series by Michelle Weidenbenner (Young Adult Supernatural)
Willow has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.
"Acceptance of the difference in others is core to this novel about Droits and non-Droits. Droits are feared because of their special abilities. It is also about acceptance of who you are. Willow tries to hide the fact that she is a Droit so that she will "fit in" in school. This book should be read by all teenagers and adults in my opinion!!" reviews Miki's Hope
"The book is about a teenage girl named Willow, who discovers from a young age that she has a magical ability. However, in a world where being different is shunned, her parents beg her to keep her talent hidden. A story that enables your imagination to come out and play. If you love the likes of X-Men or even Twilight then this book will be for you. A page-turner with lots of intrigue to keep you hooked." reviews Carly Louise Wilson
"This was a fun read for me. The story is set in the future and people are not accepting the Droids because of their special abilities, even when used for good. Willow is adjusting to her ability and she is trying to make good choices, yet second guessing herself as most teenagers do. She is pulled toward the new guy in school, who is there for a reason. Kids are missing and people are scared. The story is easy to keep up with, yet full of surprises and I enjoyed it and the characters." reviews Natalie McMenamin
Willow is just your average sixteen-year-old girl. Okay, maybe not so average. She can heal animals. But for her own safety, her veterinarian parents have made her promise not to use her powers. Unfortunately, sometimes her compassion takes over, and she can't help ... well ... helping.
Willow is a Droit, but hides her Droitism because people like her are feared and hated by those without special abilities. Two of Willow's schoolmates, rumored to be Droits, have simultaneously disappeared.
When Willow's non-Droit friend, Rain, is targeted, Willow wonders whether she should get involved--even if that means putting herself in the line of fire.
A mysterious new friend, Trae, just might be the key to unlock her courage.
In the end, she has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.
