** spoiler alert ** Originally posted @ The YA Bookworm

Once upon a time there was a girl who was special. Her hair flowed
like honey and her eyes were blue as music. She grew up bright and
beautiful, with deft fingers, a quick mind, and a charm that impressed
everyone she met. Her parents adored her, her teachers praised her,
and her schoolmates admired her many talents. Even the oddly shaped
birthmark on her upper arm seemed like a sign of some great destiny.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.

*** insert the twilight zone theme song here***

when i  read the first chapter of ultraviolet i was shocked! the first chapter of the book was actually enough for me to gave it a high rating, in the back of my mind i was screaming 5 STARS! many thoughts are spinning in my mind on why did she kill the girl, i was thinking that maybe she has split personality or maybe she has an evil twin sister, so i was so curious and i don't know but demented kids and twisted murders really fascinates me.

this book is actually about Allison she is confined to Pine Hills Mental institution cause she is a suspect of killing her classmate Tori, but  she  has no memory of killing her, and she actually possess a different kind of ability wherein she can see different variety of colors that is not visible in the human eye and according to the book it's called Synesthesia. and she can actually sense if someone is lying to her.

while reading this book I was actually scared and confused at the same time, many new ideas about paranormal stuff are introduced here there are a lot of terminologies that i am not familiar with, but nevertheless the book is good i'm just not that in to aliens and too much science fiction are just occurring here. i enjoyed the twist like how the author gave us the idea that people here are crazy but it turns out that Tori wasn't actually dead and Allison didn't actually killed her  and Tori is actually is actually an Alien. the ending is nice also very bittersweet

i gave the book 3 stars cause i just like the book, i am not a big fan of aliens i like science fiction books if it's dystopian or utopian, i do recommend this to people who likes Sci-fi books that is about aliens and as far as i can say, this is better than star wars. haha!

Once upon a time there was a girl who was extraordinary. She could
hear colors, and see sounds, and taste the difference between truth
and lies. But hardly anybody knew that, and she preferred to keep it
that way.People thought she’d killed someone, but she hadn’t. They didn’t
believe her—some still don’t—but that doesn’t bother her much anymore.
Because she has her family and her music and her freedom, and
somewhere in the universe is a man with violet eyes who loves her.
And deep down, part of her still believes that one day she’ll see
him again.
This is my story.
