Hunting Lila (Lila #1) by Sarah Alderson

Genre: Fantasy YA

Rating: 5/5 Stars!! (My favourite read!)

Goodreads Summary:
17-year-old Lila has two secrets she's prepared to take to the grave. The first is that she can move things just by looking at them. The second is that she's been in love with her brother's best friend, Alex, since forever. After a mugging exposes her unique ability, Lila decides to run to the only people she can trust - her brother and Alex. They live in Southern California where they work for a secret organisation called The Unit, and Lila discovers that the two of them are hunting down the men who murdered her mother five years before. And that they've found them. In a world where nothing and no one is quite as they seem, Lila quickly realises that she is not alone - there are others out there just like her - people with special powers -and her mother's killer is one of them…

My Opinion:
Praises for Hunting Lila! There's never a dull moment in Hunting Lila; it keeps me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole journey. 

This is a book about Lila, a girl who found out about her unique ability after involving in a mugging incident. She set of to California from London to find her brother Jack and his good friend (her long time crush), Alex. However, they seem to be hiding something from her, something about her mother's murder. There's more to this than meet the eye. And there's a little surprise element in the book! 

I simply adore the whole plot, characters and even the book cover! I've heard about this book a lot from bloggers and decided to grab a copy and it didn't disappoint me! It was so captivating that I finish the whole book in about 6 hours, maybe slightly more than that. Now, I'm itching to re-read it again. That's how good the book is! 

P.S. Alex is just so swoon-worthy. ;) 

5 Stars for Hunting Lila!
