What a fun premise for a book! Having a MC who can't touch anyone without seeing their death is just a fun new idea!

Unfortunately for me though, I didn't really realize that this was more of a YA read than anything. I want to mention up front that I'm not a huge YA fan, mainly because I can't stand the teenage angst that always seems to be involved, so this one probably fell a little short for me for that simple reason alone. I really do love the idea behind this story, but some of the execution

Trigger warnings: suicide, alcoholism, mental health, and child abuse
Also, mild spoilers?

Let me begin this review by saying I have been a big fan of Caitlin Alise Donovan (known as ladyloveandjustice on Tumblr) for a long time. I saw her post updates about her writing this book when she was in grad school. I watched her search for an agent, a publisher, and go through the long and challenging process of publishing her first book.

I am so extremely happy for her achievement. She published her fi

Please note that this review, as always, is purely based on the opinion of this solitary reviewer. As always, if you are curious about this book, I do advise you to seek it out yourself and make your own judgements.

I was recommended this book by a friend who follows the author on Tumblr and thought that I would be my kind of thing and, I must admit, I was drawn in by its premise. I like the idea of a protagonist who is

I I really enjoyed reading this book, it kept you in suspense and wanting more. I was very invested in the characters and
could really feel Manee's intense emotions. Would definitely recommend.

Something different!

Manee and her friend Stephanie aren’t your average teenage girls. They have abilities that are of the supernatural spectrum that causes a lot of complication in their already busy, complicated teenage lives. They grow closer, a stronger more intimate relationship slowly building between them as they realise they have more in common than they realise, and that their support for one another will be important both present and future. Nothing is ever as it seems, something Manee

May have some vague spoilerish comments below, but attempting to keep this review spoiler-free:

It is refreshing to read a book about characters with flaws and mental turmoil that is not glossed over by the narrative. Manee is imperfect, Stephanie is imperfect, but they are still valued, important, they still deserve to find love, and family. I also enjoyed the focus being on the journey of the two main characters healing and finding a support system than the focus being solely on romance without
