About the book:

"If science is right, then I am crazy. And crazy is dangerous."

In a world where nothing supernatural exists, Tess Eckhart is positive she’s going crazy. After her complete freakout at a high school party, her parents worry she might be right. So much that they pack their bags and move across the country, next to a nationally-renowned facility for the mentally ill.

Tess is determined to fit in at her new school, despite the whispers and stares. But when it comes to Luka Williams, a reluctantly popular boy in her class, she’s unused to a stare that intense. Then the headaches start, and the seemingly prophetic dreams that haunt her at night. As Tess tries harder to hide them, she becomes increasingly convinced that Luka knows something—that he might somehow be responsible.

But what if she’s wrong? What if Luka Williams is the only thing separating her from a madness too terrifying to fathom?

 About Katie:

K.E. Ganshert was born and raised in the exciting state of Iowa, where she currently resides with her family. She likes to write things and consume large quantities of coffee and chocolate while she writes all the things. She’s won some awards. For the writing, not the consuming. Although the latter would be fun. You can learn more about K.E. Ganshert and these things she writes at her website You can also follow her on Twitter, @KatieGanshert

My Take~

This book confirms why I enjoy YA fiction. Katie writes a book that is engaging, entertaining, and keeps you guessing. The relationship between Luka and Tess is typical of teenagers in many ways, yet not typical. I loved Tess being a seer, especially since she is a teenager. It made me wonder how I would be if I was in her shoes as a 17 year old teen. Tess was completely believable and I cheered for her throughout the entire book.
This is a clean read, and perfect for a pre-teen up. I highly recommend it! I am so glad I have the second book, The Awakening book 2 on my kindle.
