I keep on thinking how much I would have liked to have read this one as a young girl and how I would have dreamed that I could also move things with my mind, like Katie does. However, the story is still great and is quite engaging. Expand Product Details Most people shy away from Katie Welker. I liked that this book in particular draws a very specific parallel between disability and people's fear of difference. And it is old-fashioned in a certain sense--the book is very definitively set in the late 1970s, with fashion and child-rearing attitudes reflecting the time period. And life without friends has convinced Katie that she's different from everyone else. But now I'm left wanting the rest of the story.

The conflict arises from misunderstandings between kids and adults, not some evil opposing force. Katie has always made people feel nervous, even her family. Also, would it be better to know an animals or peoples thoughts? I liked the story as a teen although some of that might be due to nostalgia , but loved it as a kid. Are you going to swim in the pool? Also I suppose my parents aren't going to drive across town in the middle of the night and yell at me for reading with a flashlight under the covers.

When he finds out that she isn't a full werewolf like he thought, what will he do? Now that I am much older, I do see some flaws in the plot that were not apparent to me when I was young. What I liked about The Girl with the Silver Eyes is that it was focused more on normal everyday type circumstances and people finding connection in their differences rather than focusing primarily on the fantastic. Although, I admit it, watching Katie scare the babysitter was hilarious. The character's voice, along with her daring and courage make this fascinating. But then Katie needed to try to find the other children who mother's worked with the same chemical.

And what it means to want to be accepted for who you are. It's like the book was written for a young me. That's what I liked about it, and it was probably my first exposure to a fictional character with telekinetic powers. As it is, I'm glad I'm read it finally. While kids on the spectrum don't move things with their mind, they do tend to be shunned by their peers and have a sense of not fitting in, and there's been a debate, as at the end of this book, about whether they're better off sheltered from the general population or integrated into society. Cooper might do, so when she finds out that there might be more children with gifts like hers, she decides to find them. I don't know why I never read it.

Especially when his contact on the missing person case is an excited and teary man overcome with worry. The main character has my name, but I'm pretty sure I pulled it off the shelf way back because of the title. Will no one like her anymore? She also thought Katie was weird Adam Cooper- Really nice guy that likes Katie for who she is. This was one of my favorite books when young. In The Girl with the Silver Eyes by Willo Davis Roberts, Katie Welker is different. The writing style defiantly had a classic feel to it for me. Willo Louise Davis was born in.

In this short story Hammett paints a picture of a brutally realistic urban center filled with characters that not many people would want to call friends. There isn't nearly enough action and I so wish there had been more about Katie's powers. Some people think Katie might be a witch, and none of the children like her. Not at Derward, but at her. Katie is a normal girl in many ways, and does many of the things with her power that we all would; shutting off lights from across the room, and playing tricks.
