Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout
(September 18, 2012, by Spencer Hill Press)
"Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.Holy crap.. that sounds good. OKAY. I feel like I'm literally the only person who has not read something by Jennifer L. Armentrout yet!!! What is this?! I feel terrible, since I have heard only amazing things about everything she has written. She is rapidly becoming famous! I need to pick this one up soon, and as well as her other novels. And this cover is just mediocre yet, gorgeous!
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time."
