Summary: (from goodreads) To be normal, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would shed her empathic gift in a second. Life has been difficult since her mother's mysterious disappearance ten years earlier - an event she witnessed, but can't remember. Julia's situation becomes more complicated after a near death experience from a blood thirsty stalker. As high school students go missing it is clear there is a connection to her own experience--past and present. Someone has to stop the madness and a chance encounter with a creepy psychic foretells that only Julia is the key to stopping the madness, but it may require the life of the one she loves.

When I first purchased this book I figured it was about Vampires. I thought that it would be the same storyline with a little bit of changes. But to my surprise, it was completely different. I immediately fell in love with the personality of the main character. She tells it like it is and is respected among her piers which I thought was awesome. The love interests, yes there's more than one, are all different and she needs to choose. Which you would say is sort of like the other love stories. It is but with a surprise and many twists. This story is romantic, mysterious and heart warming. The plot is fantastic and I can not wait until I get my hands on the next book. There are somethings I wish were explained in this story but it's not like.. I wanted to know how she has her special powers and how does no one in her family know about these powers? I hope it's explained in the next book. Anyways, the overall book is great, I recommend it.
