Tully isn't alone in her skin. Whenever she touches someone, they feel everything she feels. All her ugliness. All her darkness. All her pain.
The only thing she wants is to be left alone--and to finally get out of her small Oregon town.
But then she meets Chris. He's everything she's not. Light. Trusting. Innocent. And he wants Tully.
Tully knows she should spare him the heartache of being with her. But when he touches her, she's not sure she'll have the strength to push him away--until he learns about her dark past, and what really goes on in her ever-decaying home.
From the author of Every Ugly Word comes a poignant, emotionally raw story about the violence that plays out behind closed doors and the all-consuming passion of first love.
I received an ebook copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book! It was unlike other YA books that I've read...and I've read quite a bit.
Tully is a young girl who has gone through some very tough times in her life that started with the death of her mother. Now, without her, she's stuck in a home, terrified of her father who doesn't know how to be a father, and with a special "gift" of her own. Whomever she touches ends up feeling whatever she is feeling. Not the best thing when Tully is already feeling isolated.
Then Tully meets Chris and all bets are off.
