The Mark by Jen Nadol

Cassandra Renfield has always seen the mark—a glow around certain people reminiscent of candlelight. But the one time she mentioned it, it was dismissed as a trick of the light. Until the day she watches a man awash in the mark die. After searching her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Not how or where, only when: today.

Armed with a vague understanding of the light, Cassie begins to explore her “gift,” seeking those marked for death and probing the line between decision and destiny. Though she’s careful to hide her secret—even from her new philosophy-obsessed boyfriend—with each impending death comes the temptation to test fate. But so many questions remain. How does the mark work? Why is she the only one who sees it? And finally, the most important of all: If you know today is someone’s last, should you tell them?

This book was amazingly addicting. Jen Nadol did a wonderful job writing this. It is a book that I will be sure to never forget. Nadol takes you into a marvelous emotional roller-coaster that is never-ending. At times, I found myself screaming at this book.
When I read it, it felt like I was in the story. I highly recommend this book. My personally copy has been passed around all of my friends and they have all loved it too.
