Evermore by Alyson Noel

This was a really cool book.

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.

Damen Auguste is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head—wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can see straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

Though this book was slightly Twilight-esk, I enjoyed it. It pulled me into it's wonderfully portrayed world. Damen was a regular "dream-boy", but, for once, there was a twist. He wasn't as perfect, he still was extraordinarily "perfect", but he had his faults. When it came to Ever, however I found that she was too depressed all the time. I have know people who currently are or have been depressed, and they don't act that way. I understand trying to shut out the world, but, seriously? She could have tried a little bit harder to be more positive. That being said; there were some things I liked about this book.

It was clever and witty. It showed Alyson Noel's ability to create a whole separate world, that though we live in it, there are some secrets. Despite the bad things I said about this book. I really enjoyed it.
