You are more than you think you are. That is the anonymous message that Beth Michaels receives right before she starts seeing things. Not just a slept-through-my-alarm-clock, late-for-homeroom, haven’t-had-my-caffeine-fix kind of seeing things. It all starts with some dots, annoying pink dots that pop up on and over her mom and her best friend’s face. But then things get out of control and Beth is seeing people’s pasts, their fears, their secrets, their desires. The images are coming at Beth in hi-def streaming video and she can’t stop it. Everyone thinks she’s crazy and she’s pretty sure she agrees with them. But crazy doesn’t explain the gold envelopes that have started arriving, containing seeing keys and mysterious tarot cards. To Beth, it all seems too weird to be true. You are more than you think you are? But here’s the thing: What if she is? Download and start listening now!

    " Someone gave this book to my young daughter. As I was trying to see if it was something she should read or not I was interested in reading the whole thing. I loved it. I couldn't put it down. I think everybody misses the lesson we should take from this book. We should hold on to the bad things or stuff that we do or have been through. We need to take the steps to forgive and be forgiven. If we do we can have a hidden ugly with us. Letting go gives us that Ray of light we all want to have. It is achievable. It gives us a sence of underneath power about are selves. No, we don't get super powers, like in the book. ( Thats a great thing about fiction). Our self worth and the sence of being able to accomplish anything. A more positive attitude. If you get rid of the ugly in you your bonded to find out who you are, and why your hear. ( maybe)! This is just my opinion. Great book. Is there another book to this story, I mean there's got to be, the way it ended. "

    " The Seven Rays...... didn't make much sense. it wasn't explained well enough but i think if the author elaborated on the plot, it would be awesome. only other problem was that it was REALLY girly. but that should be expected since Jessica Bendinger also wrote 'bring it on' 'sex in the city' and 'stick it' "

    " Started really really good and just got really weird! "

    " This book, to a person not open to a new readin experience, could be interpreted as confusin and not connected...at all, but to me, this book made perfect sense. Now, im not sayin my readin skills are any higher than anyone else on this page, im 16 and i know my brain isnt done developin and im also not as smart as some of the Adults who have read and reviewed, but since my brain isnt as fully developed, it is open to many ways of doin things, which is what this book needs. To read this book you cant just READ the book, you have to probe deeper and be able to jump from story to story and remember things and be able to connect them at the right moments. This book will give you a peice of information in the beginning that wont click or make sense till the end and thats where you need to make the ropes like Beth does. Also in the "probin deeper" parts, for example: the relationship between Beth and Richie, Beth has been crushin on Richie for a while, and it was obvious that he was flirtin with her, and their "instant love" thing isnt completley out there, by that i mean when they kiss and they get "electrocuted" it isnt just a random zap, if you probe deeper you might find that this could represent the "spark" two people will feel towards eachother that CONNECTS to love at first sight. and the mom part, that could be interpreted as when the mom realizes that the child SHE raised because 7RI gave her up is now goin BACK to those people and her "mother" feels betrayed because those people didnt help her get older, see her through her pains, her sorrows, or see grow up and help at all. So again, once you PROBE deeper and CONNECT to the back story at the end, you get a deeper connected meaning to the story. Im not sayin the other reviews are wrong im just sayin those people must have just read the book by goin through the motions and not "stoppin to smell the roses." I stopped, so to speak, and found this book very interesting and intriguing, you just have to be patient and open to new experiences. "

    " There is no way I would trust a total stranger to give me a giant tattoo without telling me what it was. "

    " This book was different, but in a good way.I hope that there's a sequel because I'm looking forward to see what happens next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aira | 11/16/2013

    " Didn't bother to finish it. Spent most of the chapters discussing about sex. Meh. For a supposedly smart girl, her choice of words are pretty much ordinary. "

    " One of the best books I've read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 8/31/2013

    " This book is strange and I just flat out didn't like it. The entire story is confusing as a whole and after I finished reading it, I found myself unsatisfied. Not something I like to be at the end of a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vianey | 7/11/2013

    " Depending on the books you like depends if you will like this book or not. I for one very much enjoyed this book it was interesting although would have wanted a different ending "

    " This book was really amazing. I didn't know what exactly to expect from it, but I loved the concept of it. It was really original and if you could be open minded and get what the author was trying to get across from the story I think you would really like this book. I loved it. "

    " I have read worse written books but this one impossible for "Beth must go and give birth by seven different men and it will kill them if she stays with them" hard to take. WHAT KIND OF AN ENDING IT THAT? Also just the general obession with sex. An interesting story idea lost. Sigh "
