The One thing by Mari Lyn Curtis is an amazing book that you will want to read until the end! After Maggie loses her eyesight, Maggie decides to take action and rebel against everyone, gaining herself a probation officer. Even her old friends won't speak to her after she quits the soccer team. Then, Maggie meets ten year old, Ben by seeing him. Ben is the only person that Maggie can see, after a while, she realizes how lucky she is. Maggie realizes that she has the potential to do amazing things, even with her disability. Best of all, ben is the younger brother of her favourite singer, Mason Milton. I think this book is amazing because it shows you a whole new perspective. I would recommend this book for anyone over thirteen looking for a suspenseful and creative read. Rating- 4.5/5 stars. @Readit12 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I really liked Maggie's voice and the plot of this book but to be honest Mason actually creeped me out; the book was filled with things like "he's so dark and gloomy but he obviously totally cares about his family, even though he's just sitting there being antisocial and doing nothing helpful". That part annoyed me. There was also one cliché scene.

I loved this book! It's interesting for people who are into music, and somewhat intense storylines. With a few twists, the book stayed interesting 24/7 and it was hard to put down.
