Eva Walker is a seventeen-year-old math genius. And if that doesn’t do wonders for her popularity, there’s another thing that makes it even worse: when she touches another person or anything that belongs to them — from clothes to textbooks to cell phones — she sees a vision of their emotions. She can read a person’s fears and anxieties, their secrets and loves … and what they have yet to learn about calculus. This is helpful for her work as a math tutor, but it means she can never get close to people. Eva avoids touching anyone and everyone. People think it’s because she’s a clean freak — with the emphasis on freak — but it’s all she can do to protect herself from other people’s issues.

Then one day a new student walks into Eva’s life. His jacket gives off so much emotional trauma that she falls to the floor. Eva is instantly drawn to Zenn, a handsome and soulful artist who also has a troubled home life, and her feelings only grow when she realizes that she can touch Zenn’s skin without having visions. But when she discovers the history that links them, the truth threatens to tear the two apart.

review

I received an advance digital reader’s copy but this does not affect or influence my review.

I love this book! Just like any books I’ve randomly picked this up without reading the synopsis. The whole story actually explains the title of the book and even though I figured out the plot twist when I was past half way through the book it never really lessen the emotional effect it has. There was humor and honesty, although Eva Walker’s situation was fictional or maybe it has psychological explanation it was amazingly written because of the feelings that the author presented as very realistic.

The story of the book is very family oriented, it’s just so nice to read good relationships among parents, siblings, and daughter but the author didn’t deny them to real life situations where there would always be a misunderstanding but then it could also be fixed, also the friendship between Eva and her friend Charlotte was also challenged but it was perfectly portrayed by the characters. Lastly, I enjoyed the romance so much, the mix was really good. One person is such a nerd about math and then the other is so full of artsy beauty in him. The two main characters both have dark past yet they showed maturity but at the same time it wasn’t overly fictionalized because they still have that teenage vibes in them where most young adults could actually relate to.

If you enjoyed Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes or Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum and also, Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone then you’re gonna love this. I highly recommend this one.
