Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Since her 9-year-old sister Sophie died, Corrine refuses to touch anyone. She won’t risk killing someone else. After all, her blinding, indigo-electric touch was what killed Sophie. Her escape plan seems easier when her family moves from Chicago to New Orleans. Maybe Corrine’s secret terrifying gift can remain hidden. But when handsome stranger Rennick approaches and seems to know about her power, Corrine begins to have hope: Maybe she wasn’t responsible for her sister’s death. Maybe her touch can be used for healing. But harnessing her power and helping others just might be Corrine’s downfall.
