Alexis is just passing through like a normal student in high school, well as normal as a girl can be with the ability to hear the decisions people make in their minds. That's when she hears "him" make the decision to kill her, and put her in the lake. But who is he and who is the her he is going to kill? Alexis goes on a search to find out who this him is. There has been word that the mayor's daughter has been missing. Could this be the her that he was talking about? Eventually the mayor's daughter is found dead in the lake. A place that Alexis has been searching as she knows that is where he planned on dumping her, and apparently the mayor's daughter had something of his and he's going to go back and look for it. Alexis tries to feel him out and figure out who he is but she gets distracted when she runs into Chance. He's the new boy at school and there is just something about him as she feels they have a very strong and deep connection to one another. It's like something is pulling them together, they start to hang out and the feeling is mutual as their relationship continues to grow and at a rapid pace. Little do they know that the reason they feel this strong connection is because they share a past that Alexis can't remember, but Chance knows all about it because he's not really all there without his special necklace.

Gabriel is Chance's cousin. They are complete opposites, where Chance is pure sweetness, Gabriel is the epitome of evil. It seems to roll off his skin. While in school Alexis begins to befriend Summer, who in her own right has her own secrets. She has magical powers, stronger than she even realizes. The four of them together is a dangerous thing because that connection that Alexis and Chance feel involves all four of them. I won't say what that is as you really should read the book. It's an interesting story and lots of witchy things going on.
Throughout the book Alexis discovers more about her past and finds out why and when she finally had the ability to read people's minds, well not completely only the decisions they make. Gabriel being the evil person that he is, is out for pure revenge. He believes because of Summer and Alexis, his life is the way it is. He's a ghost, and turns out so is his cousin. But why does he blame these two girls? Why is he so unbelievably evil and will he win in the end? There's a fight of good and evil, and compromises that need to be made.
This was a good book, I haven't read anything about ghosts recently so it was interesting, throw in a witch and a girl who can read minds and you've got yourself an interesting read.
