I loved this book and couldn't put it down. It had some mystery, some angst, some love, cute boys...everything you would want in a great story. I almost cringed when the last chapter ended but thank the lord for epilogues...I may have hurt the person sitting next to me on the plane if I was kept hanging on that one. The characters are likable and although I found Violet's girlfriends annoying at times (maybe it was because I just wanted her to spend all of her time with Jay) they were important. I won't do a recap of the story but am curious to find out more about why Violet has this gift. It was alluded to in that it was passed down from someone in her family but that was the extent of the background on it. I hope the next books give more background about it.
