Guest Review by Sal
Just when you think you’re safe, everything that you know can be turned upside down and your future can be put in jeopardy.
Five friends enter their local nature preserve and leave as five boys with supernatural powers, whose lives have been changed forever. ‘Discovery of the Five Senses,’ is a story about five teenage boys– Alex, Jordan, Rhee, Chase and Kinsu. Living in a small, safe town like Danville Heights, the boys are used to living quiet lives. But there is one secret in Danville Heights, and one hard and fast rule: No one enters the forest preserve.
Most of the younger people in town don’t know why their parents have forbidden them from going into the preserve. And, being teenagers, the five friends decide to enter the preserve to find out why it is off limits. But what they discover inside is nothing like what they might have thought was inside.
Soon after walking into the forest, small balls of light begin to follow them. Then, the lights begin to explode and the boys are knocked out, waking up with new and unusual abilities that boggle their minds. Each boy has a different sense that seems to have been boosted– Kinsu’s vision, Rhee’s sense of smell, etc.
Discovering these new senses is exhilarating enough for the teenagers, but soon they will have to use their powers to fight against a local gang leader who is intent on making Danville Heights his next target.
‘Discovery of the Five Senses,’ is a thrilling Young Adult novel with an excellent payoff at the end. K.N. Smith’s prose is engaging and resonates beautifully with her plotting. Readers of all ages will love this electrifying look at big subjects like loyalty, friendship, fighting for what you believe in and finding out who you really are. Highly recommended!
