Sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom hates her life. After a tragic accident, that claims the lives of her family, Ever lives with guilt, blaming herself for their deaths. Now she lives with her aunt in California. Though Ever didn’t die, something changed within her. She now has the ability to see people’s auras and hear their thoughts just by touching them. She hates this and tries to avoid any human contact. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, a new boy shows up. Damen Auguste is gorgeous and wealthy and Ever can’t read his aura. Not only that but Damen makes her feel emotions she wants to forget. Should she succumb to his charms or continue to live in denial? And can she accept what she truly is?

I enjoyed this tale of Ever as she struggles with the conflicts of surviving an accident and the strange ‘gift’ she received. When I first started reading this story, I thought it would be yet one more paranormal tale. Boy was I wrong! Noel creates characters that are realistic and believable. I couldn’t help but wonder what Ever would do when Damen showed up. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next, another twist showed up. I couldn’t put this book down! For sure Ever’s story will appeal to those who love books on the paranormal.

Alyson Noel lives in Laguna Beach, California and is working on her next book. The sequel BLUE MOON is scheduled for release August 2009. Find out more about Alyson on her website
