    "First of all, this listing is for a movie, not a book. Second, the Netflix page comes up empty. Matilda the movie is based on a book by Roald Dahl about a girl with telekinetic powers, so that qualifies!"

    "In The Lightning Thief, a boy discovers he's the son of a god. The book is certainly entertaining but falls well short of living up to the promise of the book's premise."

    "I really enjoyed The Last Council from the Amulet #4 series. In this book Emily travels to Cielis for help but the cloud city is quite unusual and provides a very interesting story. I think this series makes a great gift if you know anyone who likes books about children with special powers. "

    "I found this to be a beautifully written retelling of an old fairy tale. It's very engaging, and I loved depth of the characters involved. Ms. George's storytelling style suits me I think. This is actually my first book of hers, so I will be looking at more in the future!"

As the how point if the book is on how her family suddenly disappears it takes you on a wild ride on how a child comes to find out how she seems to be different from all the other kids. How she seems to come across her powers when put in a strange situation. Its a must read for scfi fans."

    "This book can easily fulfill the topic requested. First of all the price on amazon is decent and affordable, second the reviews are fantastic and actually has an abundant amount of reviews indicating that it's really popular and subjectively good. This also reminds me of stranger things which can get people to like this book as well"
