Synopsis: 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 blows.

Ember 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.

My Review: Well, Jennifer you just don't dissappoint me! Once I again I am completely enthralled by the world you have created and have fallen in love with your magnificent characters. When I first started the book, I kept in mind the synopsis of course and for some reason... everything was so not how I expected it to be! But in a good way. Ember's little sister has a special gift in which she can bring back the dead. Which is how Ember is still alive; but now poor Ember can't touch anything without killing it! All she longs for is human touch, to feel warmth and when Hayden steps in the picture... well, let's just say those urges increase some ;)
I loved the way Ember reacted to her whole situation because I thought it was pretty damn believable. I liked how she questioned and doubted their "kindness" and how she was smart and she tried to make everything work in spite of all the tragedies that kept happening back-to-back like some domino effect. All in all I loved this book and this only strengthens my love for all of Jennifer's work because she is truly just freaking awesome at writing. I can't wait to keep reading more form her and... well that's all folks! Make sure to mark September 18th on your calendar!
