Ever has found herself psychic, able to see and converse with her dead sister, and an outcast all because of a horrific car accident that killed her family and left her behind.  She tries hard to block out all of the thoughts of other people by hiding in sweatshirts and plugging her ears up with the loudest music she can find.  She manages to have two friends at school, but as a new kid shows up she finds herself faced with more and more troubles.  First, the new kid is super hot and he seems to be completely interested in her.  Second, that new boy seems to be a player that has a beautiful girl following him around.  Third, that beautiful girl seems to be stealing one of her best friends.  Things become stranger when Ever begins to date the new boy, Damen, who disappears often and Ever’s friend ends up getting a tattoo that looks like it moves.  What is going on?  Ever begins to find out more about Damen then she bargained for and needs to save her best friend, but from who?  Who does Ever need to give up and who should she keep?
I wasn’t completely impressed with this story.  It took me about two days to read.  I think the part that I didn’t like about the story was that I never felt like I understood the characters.  I would have liked to get to know Ever, her group of friends, and even her enemies a bit more.  Other than Ever’s background about why she has her “gifts”, what makes her tick?  How did she end up becoming friends/enemies with the people who are around her?  I felt like I wasn’t involved in the story as much as I would have liked to.  I wonder slightly if the book was made shorter than it should have been.  I would like to explore more and have more descriptions.  I like to see everything rather than just be told.  It just seemed so rushed.
