Something greater than human…

Jaylen Hayes knows that she is different from all other seventeen-year-old girls. Possessing extraordinary intelligence, she is also uncannily powerful and inexplicably hated by wild animals. But it is not until she transfers to Trinity High that she learns the truth about who—and what—she really is.

Instinctively drawn to two new classmates—the intense and passionate Indigo, and the charismatic and breathtakingly gorgeous Michael—Jaylen soon learns the shocking secret of their shared heritage, and the bloodline that extends to the stars. However, all is not what it seems, and Jaylen soon finds her newfound security threatened when a trusted friend becomes a dangerous and vengeful enemy. 


My Review

I'm liking this story. I wasn't sure what to expect from this. The summary didn't give much away so you find out why the characters consider themselves outsiders. We are given the reason why but it was never really explored. I am guessing that it part will be fleshed out more in a book 2. Until then, we are left wondering what are they, where they are from, how did they get here, and why are they here.

The book focus mostly on a love triangle. Yes, I know. A freaking love triangle. No worries. It isn't just thrown in there. The triangle is a major part of this novel. So here's the scoop. Jaylen is different. She doesn't know what it is but she doesn't feel any kind of connection to most people. Her mother being one of the few exceptions. 

With her mother dead, Jaylen is forced to live with someone else and go to a new school. For the first time, she feels this strange pull to a girl she later learns is named Indigo. Later on in the day she meets Michael. She felt the pull but it was intensified. Soon she learns that not only did they felt the pull too but that they are what she is. Unfortunately, things soon change when Indigo love is not reciprocated by Michael. Now love turns into a fatal attraction and things will never be the same again.

This is a book for people who are looking for a ya read that is more on the thriller side. You have attempted murder, a love triangle, a fatal attraction, super powers, a cast of people of color, and two bisexuals. Book 2 seems like it will have more action and possibly an answers as to what Jaylen is.

Love the Grease outfits and even more happy that they were Keneckie and Rizzo. Rizzo is my girl. She sings one of my fav songs from the film "There are worse things I could do."

“Who?” Eugene asks. “You and Warren.”“No. I’m Johnny Castle. He’s the dude from Grease.” - should be Dirty Dancing #-oOops so I read this wrong. One character states that he is Johnny Castle and states that the other is the guy from Grease. So not a typo or mistake by the author but one made by me.
