Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo. Ember Brycin has been called them all. She's always known she's different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her. When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who's hot as hell and darkly mysterious.

This is one of the worst books ever.

The story is slow, confusing and all over the place. One moment Eli is into her only to turn around and being a complet a.. After 15 chapters I still have no idea where the story is going and why this other man keeps showing up in her dreams. I just don’t get it.

The narrator was really awful. She constantly speaks in this low “I’m trying to be sexy” voice and it did not fit with the things happening in the book.

I’ve read so many of the books in this category and I’ve loved most of them but this time I’m really disappointed.

I would not waste my time on this book. Sorry.

What did you like best about this story?

The story kept me interested most of the time. The plot was never predictable and kept my brain working.

What about Suzy Jackson’s performance did you like?

I liked the way she delivered the sentences. It was as if she was just as excited about the story as the reader.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
