Jarrod Thornton is mesmerizing,
but Kate Warren doesn't know why.
The moment the new guy walks into the room, Kate senses something strange and intense about him. Something supernatural. Her instincts are proven correct a few minutes later when, bullied by his classmates, Jarrod unknowingly conjures up a freak thunderstorm inside their classroom.
Jarrod doesn't believe in the paranormal. When Kate tries to convince him that he has extraordinary powers that need to be harnessed, he only puts up with her "hocus pocus" notions because he finds her captivating. However, the dangerous, uncontrolled strengthening of his gift finally convinces Jarrod that he must take Kate's theories seriously. Together, they embark on a remarkable journey -- one which will unravel the mystery that has haunted Jarrod's family for generations and pit the teens against immense forces in a battle to undo the past and reshape the future.

Well..what can I say? This book is both mesmerizing and captivating. It's a story about a girl who has extraordinary powers that are more that normal. Kate Warren and Jarrod team up to find out why Jarrod's family has had so many mysterious and dooming accidents. The only question is...will they be able to find out about Jarrod's past and fix it before time runs out and its too late? Intriguing and magical, Marianne Curley's debut novel is a story of great mystery, love, and the past...and whether Jarrod and Kate can fix it.
