Who is the girl in the red cardigan? A taut, spooky chiller for teens about a young clairvoyant. Sometimes Evie sees things that other people don't. She's wary of the other kids at school, of what they might see in her drawings, or of what they would say if they knew she was different. So most of the time she blocks it all out and pretends she's just like everyone else. But a missing girl is trying to tell Evie something. A girl who is very persistent, who will not give up until she is found. A girl who once wore the red cardigan Evie now wears. And Evie can no longer ignore the question that needs an answer--who is the girl in the red cardigan?… (more)

A paranormal thriller that is compelling to the end. Her grandmother had the gift and so does Evie, a “gift” that her Mum doesn’t want to acknowledge. An incident at school forces Evie to begin to explore her special ability that leads her to discovering more about the original owner of the vintage red cardigan her Dad bought for her. A good mystery that gets a little spooky. Worth reading. ( )

Book description
Niets is meer hetzelfde sinds Evie ongewild een portret tekende van het dode broertje van haar nieuwe klasgenote. Altijd al zijn er signalen geweest dat ze anders is dan anderen, maar ze heeft die tekenen steeds genegeerd omdat ze erbij wilde horen en haar moeder niet ongerust wilde maken. Ze is als de dood voor de gave die ze, net als haar oma, lijkt te bezitten. Maar deze keer kan Evie er niet meer omheen: iemand probeert haar iets te vertellen. Iemand die hulp nodig heeft. Evie ziet en voelt dingen die ze niet kan verklaren en ze vraagt zich af: wie ben ik? Wát ben ik? Ze gaat op zoek naar zichzelf én naar het meisje dat haar maar niet met rust wil laten, het meisje met het rode vest...
