    1. Review originally posted at: supernaturalsnarkMY THOUGHTSThough its cover might initially cause readers to balk at the nearly indecipherable and chaotic image, the story that lies in wait is simplistic in the best possible way, progressing swiftly and easily and entertaining us with every page. In the beginning as we are introduced to Ada's healing gift, we quietly chastise her for her attitude and unwillingness to help those so clearly in need as Jessie does. As the story moves forward though w [...]

    2. Article first published as Book Review: Ada: Legend of a Healer by R.A. McDonald on Blogcritics. Raised in the Foster Care system, Ada has pulled her last stunt. At fifteen, she is rebellious and tired of moving from place to place. Her caseworker has finally had to make a decision, they will contact her aunt Jessie O’Neil, if Jessie cannot take her, she will have to reside in the between house, a place for kids no longer able to be placed.Jessie is not really her aunt, but her mother’s best [...]

    3. Ada is not your average fifteen year old. She doesn't know her father, her mother's whereabouts are unknown and she is pretty tired of being bounced around in foster care. Sure, she has her problems and isn't the easiest person to live with, but that's normal for a teenager, right? When her current foster parents call Ada's social worker to come pick her up, Ada knows it is back to the half-way house for her until they find her another foster family. But Ada is determined to live with her Aunt J [...]

    4. Ada is a well written, but in my humble opinion not very believable Y.A. novel. Based on the cover, it looks like something I'd never read. Even my daughter asked me why I was reading that ‘Goth book’. I don't care for the art work either.However, it is not Goth, nor is it about vampires, which is what my other daughter thought when I suggested she read it. It has an intriguing premise: a young girl with the ability to heal. Not only can she heal, but she can heal anything from cancer to lif [...]

    5. Ada is 15 and at the Between house after getting kicked out of another foster home, like her history of being kicked out of schools or upsetting her foster parents. She has 3 days for her Aunt Jessie to contact them before her social worker will have to send her to juvenile. Ada can tell by felling or smelling there is something wrong with someone. But they don't like hearing it when Ada asks or suggests health issues, hence part of her troubles with foster homes. The others are just not nice pe [...]

    6. Instantly you get the sense that Ada hasn't had a lot of love or caring relationships in her short life. Her attitude and personality is rough, hard, and flippant, but in the first few pages - the very first chapter to be exact - we see that in her there is a part that is compassionate. And that really sums up the essence of Ada's story. In the beginning of the story Ada says, "Everyone hangs on for a stale crumb of the good life." The compassionate thing she does in chapter one and what she say [...]

    7. I really enjoyed Ada by R.A. McDonald. I even stayed up late to finish reading it—a fairly rare occurrence. So I’m glad I persevered beyond the longer title to read the story. Legend of a Healer sounded oddly pretentious to me; I wasn’t sure I wanted to read some new teen-world-view legend. But Ada’s story isn’t pretentious at all. It’s hard-hitting, gritty, built on teen anger rather than angst, with deep questions and fascinating characters. Plus it’s a really intriguing tale.Ada [...]

    8. There are many sci fi/fantasy books out there that are directed towards young people. Most of them are about monsters and magical lands far away that don't exist. This is not one of those books. This story is set in real places and deals with real characters. The settings are metropolitan areas, ranging from Seattle to Paris. Cities which are depicted realistically, as both charming and at times dangerous. The outstanding illustrations allow the reader to connect with these places and people in [...]

    9. When I first saw this book, the cover fascinated me. I loved the mysteriousness of it and the title itself made me want to learn more about it. Then I received it.Once I picked this book up, I had a very hard time putting it down. I read it very quickly as I had no choice but to keep reading. I had to know what Ada would do next & where her adventure would take her. Ada is a product of the Foster system. She is not happy with her Foster parents. She knows that she is not exactly right but ha [...]

    10. I got this book at 445pm on a Monday, stayed up until 3am Tuesday morning and had the book finished by 8pm Tuesday night. It is a great read for both teens and adults and an excellent book to read and discuss with others. The characters are very well developed and the plot has enough twists and turns to keep anyone reading well past bedtime. More than just a fun read, this book raises questions such as "If you have the ability to help someone, are you obligated to help that person?", "If only ce [...]

    11. This was a great scifi book that keep my attention from start until finish. The pace and whit of the authors writing makes this read hard to put down. Although this strayed away from my normal scifi reading the venture off the beaten path was a refreshing one.

    12. This is Jeff's daughter and I absolutely loved the book.I cannot wait for the next, and yes I am assuming there is a next because youcannot leave me hanging like that :)P.S. I love the artwork too! :)

    13. This book was defiantly a great book for me. I was always on the edge of my seat literally not wanting to stop reading. I just wanted to get to the end of the book where everything was unfolded. This book drew me in every time, and I think that is why I loved it so much. It was very suspenseful and not scary just I was eager to read the next line. It was very adventurous and event packed, there wasn't many boring spots in the book. I think this book suits me because I like exciting books and boo [...]

    14. Well, this novel had a little bit of everything in it and left me with some questions that I was a little uncomfortable with answering. Actually I couldn't answer them. It starts out ordinary enough with Ada in yet another foster home with the typical portrayal of two unfit foster parents. Ada has done something outrageous to get herself out of a bad situation and the social worker is once again sighing and taking her to the house where she waits until she gets a new place to live. This time is [...]

    15. If you had the power to heal, what would you do? Ada is faced with the dilemma in Ada: Legend of a Healer by R.A. McDonald. Growing up in multiple foster homes with people who didn’t understand her or took advantage of her has made Ada somewhat rough around the edges. She has never met her mother or any other living relative. When she exhausts her welcome with her current foster family, Ada’s aunt Jessie comes to the rescue. It’s an odd match, but Ada is thankful for the escape from the fo [...]

    16. Ada has the unique ability of being able to heal anything she touches. Having lived in the foster care system her whole life, she finally gets the opportunity to live with her aunt, Jessie, who is also a healer, and explains her special ability. But Ada and Jessie have different viewpoints on a healer's responsibility, and Ada decides she's had enough. She takes off on her own heading to Paris with only an address and a photograph to attempt to find her mother, who she discovers isn't dead.There [...]

    17. My Rating: 4.25/5 stars!I haven’t read a book in one sitting in quite a while. I forgot how it felt to be sucked in by a really great story. I forgot how time seemed to be non-existent and not really matter much. R.A’s writing is simple, clean, and very engaging. And I just love the fact that there are illustrations in the book. I never considered myself a big visual learner or anything but when a book has pictures to go along with the story I always seem to enjoy it better. I just like imag [...]

    18. After finishing this book, I was left with a lot of questions. Not questions necessarily pertaining to the book (though of course there were a few), but mostly questions that the book manages to get you thinking about. Questions about humanity and morality, what is right and wrong, what is freedom and what does that mean?These questions are what ultimately make this an enjoyable read. Ada is a 15 year old girl who's reached the end of the foster system. Without a stable family life to be raised [...]

    19. The story itself is uniquet in the choice of characters (teen girl with powers and issues struggling to find her place in the world.certainly familiar) but in what the author does with them. Ada is no wall flower. She may prefer to stay out of the limelight because of her abilities, but she is not afraid to stand up for herself, and at times leads to some pretty funny moments. Back to those abilitiesSeeing sickness and injury is only the beginning for as the title implies, she can heal others as [...]

    20. Originally posted on my blog, Denim-Jacket Librarian DishesWho wouldn't want to rid themselves of any and all sickness or heal any injury the moment after it happens? To be free from such pitfalls as getting winded while running or healing muscles to help them grow stronger. It would sound like a good deal to most people. But for those with such abilities, like Ada, it is as much the dark side of the coin as it is the light especially when others want that skill for themselves alone. No one shou [...]

    21. Ada's lived her entire life in the foster system, knowing she has a gift, but is convinced it's more of a curse than anything else. After pulling her last stunt and being caught, Ada is fifteen and past the age that people and her caseworker can simply overlook her childish rebellion. It's either time for her to stay in a home for kids that can't be placed in stable homes, or she goes to Aunt Jessie, her mother's best friend. The two share similar gifts, but Ada resents hers until her unique abi [...]

    22. 3.5Ada Legend of a Healer is a compelling, interesting, and well-paced story that follows a 15 year old girl and her struggle with a power she never realized she possessed. Ada is young and jaded and it shows. She doesn’t trust people easily, including Jessie, the closest thing to family she has ever had. Her back and forth feelings regarding Jessie are a bit annoying, but easy to understand. Once Ada begins to accept her ‘gift’ more, she really grows and her morals develop a great deal.Th [...]

    23. First, a confession: I don't read YA books as a rule, so take my opinions with a grain of salt.What stands out to me about this book is the intriguing mystery the author has created. Being the first book in a series, a substantial amount of groundwork is laid out, yet enough is held back to entice you to come back for more. As I was nearing the end, a slew of unanswered questions swam around in my head, but in the way the author wanted them to. She wanted me thinking about where the story would [...]

    24. Ada is an interesting novel. The tagline to this book reads "If you had the power to heal, What would you do?" I thought that is a really interesting question. My first response to this question is yes, of course. Then after thinking about it for awhile, I began to reconsider my answer. There are many pros and cons that kept entering my mind. R.A. McDonald does a fantastic job answering these questions in Ada: Legend of a Healer. Ada is teenage girl who has grown up in foster care. She is not an [...]

    25. Ada is a very troubled young girl with a gift even she doesn't realize she has until her mother's friend fills her in. Ada has always been able to see other people's illnesses and maladies but didn't know that her touch could heal them. I'm not sure how you could make it 15 years before realizing that your touch heals people, but as I got the impression that none of her homes are particularly loving I suppose that she wasn't touching many people.I felt that McDonald got into the mind of a teenag [...]

    26. I'm going to be honest, I really am not a fan of this cover. I know it's wrong to judge a book by it's cover but I was still hesitant in reading this because of it. I'm so happy I got past my own first judgments because I really enjoyed this book. Within the book were also other drawings that fit scenes, which was different and interesting, but I still think I'd prefer a different cover. The book definitely needs some editing (a tad irksome but that might be because I'm an anal English major) bu [...]

    27. Heroic Healer's Engaging StoryThere's a lot to love in this fast-paced novel about a young teenage girl whose healing abilities provide her with both tremendous opportunities and challenges, as she embarks on a quest to track down her mother. Ada's journey has a sense of urgency to it, as she breaks free from her aunt's care to take off from Canada to France, keeping a low profile so as to not attract attention of those who seek to harness Ada's healing powers greedily for their own. While much [...]

    28. Ada Legend of a Healer had a bad start, but ended up turning into a rather good read.Ada is an orphan with an attitude problem. After getting kicked out of yet another foster home she can’t be placed anywhere else, so she leaves the system, embarking on her own journey to find her mother. Her journey leads her to France and the people she meets there help her hone not only her healing skills but develop skills in the art of parkour.Ada was not a likeable character for most of the story. Her on [...]

    29. A Compleat PleasureR.A. McDonald certainly knows her away around the maze within the minds of teenagers: few writers can match her gifts at expressing the angst and frustrations of 'lost kids' and still manage to deal with the adult characters around them in a three-dimensional manner that creates a solid atmosphere for compelling story telling. What's more she has the courage to blend her story with 'illustrations' (by a fine artist by the name of James McDonald) to create a new approach to boo [...]

    30. Clarification: 3,5/5 stars.This book was incredibly creative and fun to read. It's been a while since I've read a book with illustrations. I just love the artwork. To me, it added something extra, something that was needed to make this story stand out.Does that mean I didn't like the story?No it does not.I liked the story. It had a girl with a troubled past, who could heal herself (and others, of course), a crazy senator who wanted to use her powers for selfish reasons. parkour!!. in France! wit [...]
