It’s always embarrassing to have someone take you to school. Your dad, your mom, anyone with their hair in rollers.

What’s a girl to do when meeting The One means she’s cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn’t been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she’s irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can’t stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma’s been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.
I have just added this book to my “favorites” shelf. It was amazing!
I felt so bad for Emma, she had not had the best life. She looked at moving in with her aunt as a new beginning. She did get a new life, but not exactly what she had expected.
My favorite character would have to be Ashley, Emma’s cousin. She is your typical ditzy teenager. Boy crazy!!!! I enjoyed the relationship between Emma and Ashley and the fact that when Ashley was in trouble, she had turned to Emma.
Emma and Brendan…I was not quite so sure about him at first. I just kept thinking “What an idiot!” but, once he had explained himself, it was all good. Emma is a very strong leading lady. With all the suffering she has been through, deserves some happiness. I love the fact that she is not afraid to stand up for herself or someone she loves, even if it is against the biggest bully in school!
All I can say is that this book is a great read and highly recommend reading if you love romance reads. It did not take me long to finish, I had trouble even putting it down.
So, I have recently noticed that I have been aquiring many book boyfriends lately. Why do the guys in books have to be so swoonworthy? Of course they are fictional!!! P.S……sssshhhh…Don’t tell my husband:)
