Protected by her best friends, and GUIDED by her Angel protector, Jo must learn to harness her powers and discover her family secrets before time runs out.
More than her life hangs in the balance.
WOW!! The moment I opened my iPad and started reading Guided, I was hooked! I just couldn't put it down because I was so excited and invested AND couldn't wait to see what would happen next!!! All the characters are very realistic and deep, I wanted to be friends with all of them......and then there's Jasper *sigh*
Jo feels like the average high schooler nothing special and she really values her time alone. Content with watching her best friends thrive in the lime light, Jo would much rather hide in the shade of the big oak tree and not draw any attention to herself. This worked very well until the day she met Jasper. Jo becomes plagued with a peaceful picture she just can't get out of her head, why is she so obsessed with it? Not to mention, the more she closes her eyes to envision this lake, the more vivid it becomes.
Soon, Jo is not only seeing this mysterious lake crystal clear but also seeing Jasper!! He explains that it's his job to Guide Jo and help her come into her powers! Um, yes please!!! You couldn't ask for a sexier Guide than Jasper!!
The newness of coming into her powers wears off when Jo discovers someone she loves is in danger. Can Jo learn to control her powers in time to save her family??
5 out of 5 teacups!!
