Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson
Reviewed for We Love This Book
Fast paced, thrilling and exciting; Losing Lila is the absorbing sequel to last year’s Hunting Lila. Lila is a psy, one of a small group of people with extraordinary abilities. Lila’s gift is telekinesis, she can move objects with her mind and her power is growing stronger. She and her brother’s best friend Alex are being hunted by a secretive military organisation; the Unit who want to harness the psys abilities and create a super weapon. You may want to re-read Hunting Lila as this book dives right into the action with Alex and Lila running across rooftops in Mexico City. Soon we learn that Lila’s brother Jack is in a coma and in hospital under armed guard while their father has arrived and has been asked to work for the Unit. Lila returns to California alone to try and work out how she can rescue her brother and their Mum, but without the other psys will she able to save those she loves before the Unit discover her abilities. It’s a race against time and with Alex unable to help her will she lose him too. Read it and find out. The only problem I had with this book is that everything happens very fast and there are a lot of characters to keep track off. However this series is highly recommended especially if you like Michael Grant or The Hunger Games.
