Before she was kidnapped, Jillian Marie Antel Blairington was just an average bright, brave, headstrong child. She was excited for life in a new house with her Momma and new Daddy. Afterward, she's all that...and so much more.
Held in a scientific facility, Jillian discovers her past - a family she never knew and a power she doesn't understand. With her ability now activated, she can enter and even shape a person's dreams. Jillian's been kidnapped, and her Gift has been triggered, so she can locate and save Benjamin Connelly, a brother she never even knew she had. She'd better master this strange ability quickly, though, because her life isn't the only one at stake.
Her babysitter Danielle Matheson is being held as a hostage to ensure Jillian's full cooperation. Slowly, Jillian begins to learn more about her captor and the other genetically altered children held at the facility. Join Jillian as she tries to survive the training being forced upon her, find her unknown brother, escape with Danielle, and work her way back to a normal life once more.

Intriguing story with enduring message
I enjoyed the smooth transition of the narrator, the musical transitions placed between sections which fit the tone of the story, and the voice tone of the narrator/voice actress. Her voice is pleasant to listen to.
I appreciate the enduring message of the story, that goodness is worth pursuing. While it's a classic theme, I believe it is important in this day and age to present it with a perspective coming from a mixture of sci fi/fantasy and young adult in familiar settings (typical settings such as suburban life, school, family issues).
Her versatile tones, smooth transitions, accent impersonations did not seem forced, but natural. I enjoyed her portrayals of the main characters' personalities by making them believable, and not just theatrical
