Sketchy: Book summary and reviews of Sketchy by Olivia Samms
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.

Sketchy Reader Reviews
Raised in southern Michigan, Olivia Samms started writing stories as a young girl--she just didn't realize that was what she was doing. She built forts in the dense woods, grew gills under the water of small, muddy lakes, and created a fictional universe with a cast of colorful characters. Olivia's active imagination prompted her to pursue acting and musical theatre, and after receiving her degree from Cornell University, she took on the streets of New York, acting and singing in off, off-off, and off-off-off Broadway shows, regional theaters, sang in Nashville and cried on soap operas. She now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
