Product Overview

Jem has a secret: whenever she meets someone new, as soon as she looks into their eyes a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider.

"It's a gritty tale, unsparingly told, and debut novelist Ward demonstrates exceptional control of her material...This is not an easy read, but it isn't entirely hopeless either. Despite its supernatural premise, Jem's story shines a stark and honest light on the lives of teens on the fringe."
"Teens who read Charles De Lint, Holly Black, and Melvin Burgess will take to this riveting book and eagerly await the upcoming sequel."
"A lovely, bittersweet tearjerker about living life to its fullest."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Fifteen-year-old Jem knows when she looks at someone the exact date they will die, so she avoids relationships and tries to keep out of the way, but when she meets a boy named Spider and they plan a day out together, they become more involved than either of them had planned.
Annotation Saddled with the ability to know the date when someone with die when she looks into their eyes, Jem has a hard time getting close to people. Stuck in foster care since her mother died of a drug overdose when she was little, 15-year-old Jem finds life challenging. But when she meets Spider, whose end seems to be coming sooner rather than later, everything changes. Tough and cool, and perpetually skipping class, Spider is compelling. But when they ditch school and go the London Eye, Jem sees that everyone in line has the same death date and they flee a terrorist attack that rocks the city. Unfortunately, the police become very interested in why they left the scene and a host of trouble ensues.
