Overview: What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.
My thoughts: Emma, Emma, this poor girl. She lost her twin, and then her mom. And unfortunately her step-dad almost killed them both in a car crash because he was drunk. Why she chose to stay with that low life I will never know?
But then she moves in with her aunt, which was the best possible thing to do.
School life isn't easy...whose is? But she has to deal with kids she's never met being jerks and drama queens. Brendan, her feelings for him are confusing at first. And her disgust for Anthony only grows stronger with each day. He gets her in trouble and the "COW" Kristin gets her in deeper trouble.
And yet she and Brendan were meant to be together....does it take almost dying to figure that out....IDK?
