When seventeen-year-old Jane Taylor witnessed her father's death at age seven, something happened to her. Ever since, her thoughts have been consumed by death, going so far as to foresee the ever-changing deaths of those around her.

Sixteen-year-old Emily Taylor always resented her sister’s closeness with their father, who died when she was only six. Ever since she can remember, she’s had the strange ability to read minds, something her father held the key to. Left helpless, she drowns herself in a world of prescription drugs, sending her responsible older sister Jane – who acted as the mother her real mother refused to be – over the edge.

Seventeen-year-old Wes Green was adopted as a baby, left carelessly by parents that clearly did not love him. He moved in next door to Jane, sharing an alleyway window and finding in her a childhood friend that soon turned into his high-school crush. All summer, though, the pain that’s been wracking his body seemed to come with no explanation. He was done growing, was plenty healthy, and worked out regularly as a member of the wrestling team. When senior year starts, though, and the pain gets worse, the changes ahead of him are anything but what he expected, and far to animal for his taste.

When Max Gordon, doomed to be a teenager for the next thousand years, found himself standing above her dying body, he saw in her bright eyes something he hadn’t seen in the nearly one-hundred-years he’d spent roaming Earth. Her father was already dead, but there was a chance he could still save her from the wreck. Jane was her name, and she was only seven, but already she was all he ever wanted. It was his job to bring her back, but it was an act that could have been the biggest mistake of his life.

When four teens enter Glenwood High on an unseasonably cool day in September, no one but Max could understand the future that was ahead of them. Drawn together by blood and friendship, they each hide a dark secret that will soon help to bind them even closer.

When the one face Max hoped to never see again shows up on school grounds – his evil twin brother, Greg – he knows that coming back for Jane was the wrong thing to do. Finding that Greg already knows about Max’s attraction for Jane, Max finds he can no longer hope to leave again, afraid of what Greg will do.

Max has to protect Jane, Jane wants to be normal, Wes wants Jane to love him, and Emily just wants the voices to stop…

And Greg… he just wants everyone dead.
I really liked this book-it caught my attention enought that the moment I recieved it, I read it, and it was finished within one day. Unfourtanately, I recently went on vacation, so I didn't have a chance to really review it until now.
Jane was...interesting. The sort of girl who is a book nerd and loves to read and study for school and doesn't really care how she looks. Just Jane doesn't know how pretty-and ultimately special she is. Jane has always dreamed of seeing real magick-but what she doesn't know is that it's right in front of her. I really liked Jane-she was the sort of enthusiastic and bubbly type of character that knew how to control herself at the same time.
Emily was not my favorite-in fact, I thought of her as a sort of punkish character. I also didn't like how she tempted the boys to get the pills-but of course, she needed them to stop the vioces in her head-so I guess that makes sense for her to want them. To me, Emily jsut seemed like the sort of devilish type of girl who would do almost anything to maintain her status. But towards the end, I actually liked her better.
Max is really compassionate-he saved Jane because she was innocent and he believed that she had a right to live-shich she did. If Max was real, he'd be the ideal boyfriend of every single girl.
Wes is sort of hot-tempered and really short minded. He switches from one girl, to another girl, to another girl-the same two girls that he keeps on switching to. Hopefully, he'll know which one is better for him sooner or later-or realize which one he likes better.
Greg is just plain evil-there's nothing else you can say about him, and this sentence alone just about sums it up.
This book was definetely one of my favorites, but one of the only of the few flaws I could find was that a few words were missing, making the words confusing to understand, and some words were clearly mispelled. But otherwise...this was amazing!
