I received this book for free as a Goodreads First Read. I may just be feeling a bit sentimental, but I rather liked this book; the ridiculous and abrupt plot twists struck a really good chord in conjunction with the extremely over-dramatic relationships. The main characters, Jade and her best friend Alex, are just getting ready to head off to college, and (depending on who is acknowledging their age) are 18 or 19 years old. It has become commonplace for people to show special abilities; for ins ...more

This book was a first read pick of mine that was sent and I must say that I really enjoyed it! It is a world where some people are born with powers, like telepathy, and focuses on 2 teens Alex and Jade and their story.

The concept of this book is intriguing, enlightening, and full on fascinating. The Characters are easy to fall in love with and to relate too. The dynamics between each of the characters inspire us to recognise love, protection, and the meaning of family. All this PLUS the added bonus of a pure original storyline that includes the wonders of a sixth sense and immortality. I truly loved reading this book. It is unpredictable, action pact, and keeps the pages turning.The only reason this is not a ...more

Wow. What a page turner. This book was really great. It introduced you to the main group of friends/characters and their abilities. So so good. Really loved it. I don't want to write any spoilers in my review but there are some major twists in this book. Good stuff.

I thought that this was a very good page turner of a book. Although there were grammatical errors I found this book to be captivating because I was just drawn in by the story of Jade's life and how Alex fit in perfectly. I would definetly recommend this book to others.

Loved this book! Not my normal type of book, but as you get involved with the characters and the twists and turns you will not be able to put it down. Nicole did a great job with character development and keeping you in suspense. I can not wait for the next book!!!
