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 family is too. 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?

My Ideation: I must admit that the name of this book is what grabbed my attention. I must also admit, that I do read young/adult novels periodically. I as reading adult books before I was a teenager, so I guess I’m catching up on the books I should have read when I as younger.
This was a good read! I was pulled in right away! Tess is this awkward girl who just wants a normal teenage life. She has no friends and has these weird visions. She feels that she is abnormal because of this.
After an incident, Tess’ parents move the family to California. Through this move, Tess acquires a best friend and even catches the eye of handsome Luka. She also finds that Luka has the same types of visions. This story takes many turns and draws you in.
