From the beginning, this book haunted me. It was fascinating to see Delaney change as a character after she had discovered her new skill. She alienates her family and friends, the very people who are thankful for her to be alive after her near death experience falling through the ice. Furthermore, she retreats into a new relationship with a young man who shares her gift. As the reader, you feel elated for someone to explain her ‘syndrome,’ but you begin to feel distrustful of her new love interest. When everyone from her past continues to love and reach out for her, you want to rip through the pages, shake her by the shoulders and tell her to listen to her family and friends. I was shocked by the ending, and left wondering what Delaney’s future holds for her.   (South Carolina Young Adult Book Award, 2015,   prepared by: Emma Ball, Liberty Hill Academy,
