Author: Alyson Noel
Genre: Young Adult Supernatural
Synopsis: After losing her family in a horrible car accident, Ever is sent to California to live with her aunt. Ever isn't a 'normal' 16 year old girl. Ever since the accident she can see auras, read people's minds and see people's futures just by touching them. In order to hide her 'abilities' and not be constantly bombarded by the thoughts of others she shields herself off from others by avoiding contact with others. That all changes when she meets, Damen Auguste, the extremely handsome and rich newcomer to her school. Ever feels an instant connection with Damen (who appears to be able to be able to read her mind and has some tricks of his own). He is also the only one to stop her from the constant noise of other people's thoughts.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. If you're a fan of P.C and Kristin Cast (mother and daughter Young Adult supernatural authors who wrote "The House of Night" series), you'll like this book. This author doesn't get hung up on all of the teen vernacular and has written an intriguing story. I'm very interested to read the second book in this series that comes out this month ("Blue Moon: The Immortals").
My Rating: 4/5 (aka a really good read)
