Summary from goodreads: 
Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can’t help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams. 

Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force.

Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets. 

As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.

What I think: I had no idea where this story was going when I started the book, description doesn’t give you that much to go on and I kind of liked it!

The whole book is not **A-M-A-Z-I-N-GG**, it is OK. The characters are likeable and not loveable, they are described pretty well and don’t seem to blend into each other. I did not really feel a bond with Krista our main character. I even caught myself on forgetting her name on a few occasions. It was not that I didn’t like her, she just wasn’t interesting enough.

Krista’s best friend Sam on the other hand is my favorite character in the book; she is full of life and is really positive. The other characters that I clearly remember from this book are the guys (Mark & Shawn) and Krista’s mom. Krista’s mom is first introduced as one of the coolest mom’s in the world but halfway through she had a few moments where I started to doubt my first opinion.

The guys are quite alright, I liked Mark more than Shawn but I have the feeling that we are going to see more from Shawn in the next books.

The book is a fast read not just because it is quite a short story, but because it dragged me in. I think I finished it in 4 hours; I do have to mention that I’m a really fast reader. I didn’t expect a few of the plot twists and it kept me interested in finding out how the story would end. I’m looking forward to the sequel ‘Forgotten Souls’ and ‘The Ascended’!
