Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school but everything changes when she meets Damen August...Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she's thinking and he's the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn't know who he really is or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

“Everyone has an aura. Every living being has swirls of color emanating from their body. A rainbow energy field they're not even aware of. And it's not like it's dangerous, or scary, or in any way bad, it's just part of the visible (well, to me anyway) magnetic field.”Ever Bloom
“Having their friendship is one of the few good things in my life. Having their friendship makes me feel almost normal again.”Ever Bloom
“The journey back involves a trip down the River of Forgetfulness. You're not meant to remember; you're here to learn, to evolve, to pay off your karmic debts. Each time starting fresh, forced to find your own way. Because, Ever, life is not meant to be an open book test.”Damen Auguste
“Everything is energy, Ever. Everything.”Damen Auguste

Profanity is scattered around in this book, so if you are keeping your child away from that kind of language, it's best not to let them read it, however it's not terrible. Jealousy and violence is in a few chapters, but not so bad that teens can't read it. Iffy for 12+
