It’s never wise to talk to strangers…and that goes double when they’re dead. Unfortunately, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan has no choice. Resting on a park bench, touching the turnstile at the Metro station—she never knows where she’ll encounter a ghost. These mental hitchhikers are the reason Anna has been tossed from one foster home and psychiatric institution to the next for most of her life.
When a chance touch leads her to pick up the insistent spirit of a girl who was brutally murdered, Anna is pulled headlong into a deadly conspiracy that extends to the highest levels of government. Facing the forces behind her new hitcher’s death will challenge the barriers, both good and bad, that Anna has erected over the years and shed light on her power’s origins. And when the covert organization seeking to recruit her crosses the line by kidnapping her friend, it will discover just how far Anna is willing to go to bring it down.
Let me just say… I was captivated from page one.
Seriously, this was such a fantastic read!
The dialogue was SO good, there were no flaws the story and dialogue flowed SO well! The synopsis doesn’t give it enough justice! Each character had individual personalities and you could tell them apart. I loved how she described certain things as well! It had a wonderful blend between sci-fi fantasy, contemporary and mystery. I think if you’re new to the whole sci-fi genre this is the perfect read for you as its detailed and intriguing, but it’s also pretty mellow for a YA Sci-fi story! It was packed with mystery, action and so many other elements including paranormal/supernatural, but it was also light and simple, it wasn’t hard to get around the story and it did touch a few serious subjects, and was very detailed when it came to deaths, but PLEASE just pick up this book!!! We need to talk about this book MORE because I loved it SO MUCH! The ending has a perfect cliffhanger! So yes this is literal perfection it was so snappy and quick but still jam packed with detail! I’ve read quite a few books with this kind of vibe, but I will say this is definitely one of my favourite books! I will cherish this book for a long long time! I really hope that we can spread this book around in the bookish community since it deserves so much more love! There was a little bit of romance and I loved it so much since the way she talked about it was realistic and she grew to like the character rather than the cheesy insta love we see in a lot of books today. I loved the relationships between the families aswell, because sometimes blood doesn’t always mean family and that was really well done. Also I haven’t read a lot of books based in the foster care type theme and I really enjoyed that. It’s also one of those books that kept me thinking for a while, You can tell you love a book when you can’t stop think about it, haha. If you like The Lunar chronicles by Marissa Meyer and want something lighter I think this is perfect or if you haven’t read anything like this before, I definitely recommend this book! Also the cover is gorgeous! so please please please READ IT!
I cant wait for book two! And I plan on reading Rysa’s other books too!
Thank you so much for reading!!
