Katie overhears a neighbor saying that she may have been the cause of her grandmother's death! Katie KNOWS she's different but she's never tried to hurt anyone. She runs away and manaages to locate other children who have silver eyes-like her. But she's still in trouble. Can her newfound friends help her? Should they use their special powers? Will they need to?"
This book has stood the test of time - with more than 5 reprintings since I first read it in the early 1980s. The plot follows a young girl with unusual eyes and even more unusual abilities, who is struggling to fit and relate to those around her. Great for the precocious young reader.
