Synopsis: Multi-Award-Winning and Best-Selling Author, Speaker and Writing Coach.
Willow is just your average sixteen-year-old girl. Okay, maybe not so average. She can heal animals. For her own safety, her veterinarian parents have made her promise not to use her powers. But sometimes her compassion just takes over, and she can’t help … well … helping.
Willow is a Droit, but hides her Droitism because people like her are feared and hated by those without special abilities. Two of Willow’s schoolmates, rumored to be Droits, have simultaneously disappeared.
When Willow’s non-Droit friend, Rain, is targeted, Willow wonders whether she should get involved–even if that means putting herself in the line of fire.
A mysterious new friend, Trae, just might be the key to unlock her courage.
In the end, she has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.
This was a pretty fun read! Willow has secretly hidden the fact that she is a Droit for years. A Droit is a person that has special abilities and everyone who is not a Droit is very hateful towards the Droits. Willows power is helping animals and luckily for her her parents are veterinarians. But they are afraid of what might happen to her if people find out she’s a Droit so they ask her to keep it hidden. And she does. Until one of her friends service dog starts to die right in front of her eyes at school and she just knows she can’t do nothing. She thinks she uses her powers secretly but it only takes one witness for word to get out. And change Willows life as she knows it.
Glow Girl had a great premise and I enjoyed pretty much all of it. Set in a not too distant future, the world building was really neat and dynamic. I have always been a fan of super powers and what not and loved reading about this worlds powers. The pacing was fast but almost too fast at times which made this for a quick read. I was not really a fan of the romance bit of this and felt it could’ve just been tossed out and not taken away from the story. I loved Willows transformation as she goes from being terrified of being a Droit to accepting what she is and what she can do. And I was especially a fan of the fact that her power was helping animals as I am also a huge animal fan.
Recommended for fans of science fiction, X-Men, books that deal with discrimination, and quick, easy reads. I give this 3.75 stars out of 5.

She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting–without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn’t so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which comes in handy with book reviews.
