Note: 
Fifteen-year-old Jade is having some strange after-affects following a high fever with meningitis. She sees auras around people’s heads, can read minds, and accurately predicts the future. Where do these abilities come from, and what do they suggest about free will, G-d, and the meaning of life? Can Jade change the future? Jade thinks she’s crazy and a freak, but her mother, father, grandmother, boyfriend, aunt, and a Jewish psychic named Frieda have other ideas. The suspenseful, entertaining, sometimes humorous plot plays out against a backdrop of Judaism, High Holidays, and local anti-Semitic skinheads bent on destroying Jews and immigrants. The Freak is Book One in The Freak series.
