I really liked this book. It was a different take on the paranormal YA genre. As you can see from the books synopsis it's about a sixteen year old girl, who's family is constantly moving and running. Running from whom, Jewel has no clue. All she knows is that her family is on their twenty-seventh move and she's holding her breath for number twenty-eight.
Arriving in yet another town and school, Jewel starts to slowly make friends, though she always has to be on guard. She finds two boys in her new school, who she could easily crush on. The easy going, likable, Chase, and the dark, mysterious, Roman.
Though, her attraction grows for Roman I had a hard time connecting them as a couple. You never knew which side Roman was truly on, so I guess my guard was always up in wondering if he was actually a good guy or a bad guy.
The book starts to heat up with wondering exactly who, and what Jewel actually is. As she learns more about the secrets her family have been carrying for years, Jewel finds her world turned upside down and inside out. Everything about her past has been a lie. As she slowly finds out what she is and why her family has been chased for years. She learns the only person she can trust is herself and maybe Roman, though he has an agenda.
This book was laden with twist and turns(hence, the comparison to a roller coaster). When you finally think you have it figured out the author will throw a curve ball in your direction and you'll be shocked and surprised. The ending was a action packed filled with surprise, after surprise.
Now, I'm not going to spoil the whole book for you just read it. There is so much more going on with this story, that you'll want to experience it without spoilers.
The author impressed me with her debut book, and I look forward to reading more from her.
