Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen. She struggles to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate finally meets the girl who haunts his dreams. On her birthday, she must choose good or evil. In a town with no surprises, this secret could change everything.



A typical, run-of-the-mill boy who’s looking to get out his one-horse-hometown, and a girl full of darkness and mystery. These two teens are brought together by a fact that isn’t even considered fate.
Girl has powers, the closer the story approaches her sixteenth birthday the more they strengthen and develop. She is moved in with her uncle, whom is now in charge of keeping her from danger, and other like-talented people.
Boy has dreams, and is able to telepathically communicate with girl. This is considered strange and between the two of them they solve a strange mystery and keep each other out of harms way.
A few quick tragedies, and strange occurances, and you know those weird family members we have but never admit it? Well, Girl has them too, only worst and more diabolical.
Did I like this book? Yes. However, I do not understand why it’s part of a series, it could’ve easily been a standalone. Would I recommend this book? Yes. Why? Because if you like run of the mill clichés, paranormal activity and romance, this would definitely be your kind of book. Why is my review so awkward? Because it took me nearly 2 months to write this review because I didn’t know what to say about the book.
