Nothing Scares Me by Gene Kemp

I suppose it's a gift. But, I didn't ask for it, did I? Any more than you ask for brown eyes instead of blue. I often wish it would go away. I don't want to be different...Petra has a sixth sense - she can predict events that haven't happened yet. It's a talent that she's grown to hate. People think she's weird and she knows that if she wants her classmates to like her she will have to keep her gift a secret. Until her visions take a sinister turn. George, the ghost-boy who lives in her house, seems to be trying to give her a desperate message. And, why is she being plagued by the image of a dark-haired girl walking her dog? What does it all mean? When a pupil from her school goes missing, it becomes horrifyingly clear that Petra's visions may hold the key to the disappearance - and the suspected murder of a schoolgirl ten years before. But, as she soon discovers, danger lies closer to home. Petra's sixth sense may be the only thing that can protect her from becoming the next victim...
