Book Excerpt - Gifted by J.A. George

Title: Gifted

Author: J.A. George

Release date: May 10th, 2015

Genre: Young Adult

Book Description:

“Why do birds fly? Why do lions hunt deer? Why does the sun shine and the moon glow? Because it must. I wish I could tell you why, I truly do. It mustn’t be easy, such pressure weighted on such young shoulders, but we do not always choose the lives we must lead.”

Avery Gray had no choice but to be different. She was not born that way; she was chosen.
After having met a special, silver-haired woman, and the handsome and enigmatic Theodore-James Connors, Ava finds herself in Hayven, a city separated from the rest of the world, where only gifters – ordinary people with extra-ordinary gifts – can go. With Theo, his friends, Hayven, her gift, and the ability to ‘travel’ in different colours, Ava must now accept that she can no longer classify herself as normal. As friendships develop, and Theo and Ava become closer than she anticipated, it turns out her new gifted life comes with a catch. With no choice or say on the matter, Ava must save a city she is starting to fall in love with; a city that has almost begun to feel like home.

Book Excerpt

I was ordinary. I went to school, spent time with friends, visited family, and ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But then again, almost everyone thinks they’re ordinary. People who think they are extraordinary seem to look rather arrogant to others. I’m extraordinary, but I’m not arrogant; I’m a future seer. Or more simply put - I’m psychic.
