Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blowEmber operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.
So, this is my first Armentrout book. I have seen her name EVERYWHERE and was expecting a great book. Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed.
I felt so much for Ember. At 15 she had to deal with the death of her father, and the "loss" of her mother. She takes on the responsibility of raising her younger sister while dealing with her gift and getting tortured at school. Lots of mystery with this one. I was going around and around trying to figure out who to trust. Just when I thought I had it, something would happen to prove me wrong! I love that in a book. If it's predictable, it won't hold my interest. Not a problem here! I can't wait to read on and find out more about this new world Ember has been thrust into.
