Juniper has inherited some mystic skills from her grandmother, whenever she uses these skills, she gets what she calls her 'Blue Vibe."
Juniper is helping her friend Gena try to find her missing retainer along with their friend Anne. They consult a Ouija Board for help; the board gives them the word 'Park.' This isn't helpful to any of the girls, so they decide to try scrying instead. While scrying, Juniper sees a young girl that is injured; the girl's face continues to haunt Juniper as they search for Gena's retainer. When Juniper comes across a "Missing" poster with the girl's face on it, her Blue Vibe jumps into overdrive and she decides that she needs to find this lost girl no matter what.
A good, fast-paced, Sci-Fi mystery with very true to life teenage girl characters. Who knew a missing retainer could lead to finding a runaway girl? I like the way the Juniper's psychic elements were handled and using an I-pad as a modern scrying device was great! Juniper, Gena and Anne were great characters that I felt like I knew, despite the fact that this is a novelette and not very long at all.

This is another Oracles Novelette; I am fortunate to be reading "Second Sight" right after "Lost Girl" although, they do not need to be read in any particular order.
Second Sight is told from Gena's point of view. Gena absolutely loves sunglasses! When her friends Anne and Juniper go thrift shopping for a present for Juniper's dad's birthday, Gena comes across a pair of odd sunglasses that she falls in love with. For 0.65 cents, she just has to have them! As soon as Gena puts on her strange sunglasses, she starts to see wierd images, flashes of the future that she can't interpret. Is Anne going to go blind? Is Gena's dad going to be killed by his new girlfriend?
This Oracles Novelette was a little lighter than "Lost Girl" but still enjoyable. The sunglasses were an interesting device to use to see into the future, and as in "Lost Girl," the girls characters and great. I'm glad that the characters are so well developed and carry over from each Novelette. I'll be waiting for the next one...
