Goodreads description
Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.

Serial killer, trailer park, trusting the wrong person - you got me interested. Also, she can taste emotions and figure out codes. If the cover is anything to go by, this will be nailbitingly suspenseful and bloody. Also, have you noticed that tagline on it? "All the numbers add up to one killer... herself." Yup, I want this.


  1. I have seen this one around and it really seems like an interesting read. I hope you'll get it soon. Great pick :)

    Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?

  2. I want to give this book a try. I've seen it a lot and it has me curious :)

    My WW!

  3. I did not notice that tag line! I guess that explains what the undercover police officer is doing at her school. Nearly Boswell sounds like quite a cool main character. I shall have to watch out for this one come March. Cool pick, thanks honey!

  4. Awesome choice, I'll be sure to add it to my TBR list. :D
