Riassunto: Bea's life has been a mess ever since she got kicked out of private school and sent to rehab. Now clean, Bea is starting over at Packard High School, in a city shaken from two assaults on young women. The latest victim, Willa Pressman-the one who survived-doesn't remember a thing. But Bea has a disturbing new "skill": she can see-and then draw-images from other people's minds. And when she looks at Willa, Bea is shocked by what she sketches. Bea might be the only one who knows Willa's secrets-and who can take down the killer before he strikes again.

5 out of 5 Stars
Caught between a bad reputation and an ability that could stop the reoccurring assaults on girls in her city, Bea Washington has a decision to make. Just after being released from rehab, Bea gets involved in a rape case that may prove to be more than she can handle. After discovering her ability to ?draw? the truth out of people, Bea is determined to help solve the mystery of these cases, even if it means getting herself into more trouble. Will Bea be able to use her talent for good, or will her ability lead her back to where she started?
Incorporating mystery with teenage tendencies, Olivia Samms creates a novel that mixes the typical life of a high schooler with a not-so typical mystery-murder case. Samms successfully transforms Bea?s character from a backward teen to a curious, confident, and persistent high schooler with a knack for solving crimes. Samms? use of relatable topics throughout her novel allows the reader to take part in the adventure himself. The transformation of the characters in Sketchy along with the descriptive scenarios that surround Bea prove to create a novel that incorporates mystery as well as the typical life of a teenager. - San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review
