Blurb: It takes only half a second…
…Like those commercials where a crash test dummy rockets forward at high speed and slams into a wall.
…In that instant, every thought in Emma Lynn Walsh’s head collides with mine—every thought, memory, hope, disappointment and dream.
…I open my eyes to see Dr. Walsh peering at me, a puzzled expression on her face.
“Let—go—of—me,” I order though clenched teeth.
Mira wants to die. She’s attempted suicide twice already, and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that person’s psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira, it’s a curse from which she cannot escape.
To make matters worse, Mira’s father is being investigated in the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of a miracle drug. Shortly after Mira’s mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her “condition” Mira knows the truth…but proving it just might get her killed! Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20707931-contact
Wow! Contact is such an explosive read. The way Mira explains how it feels when she touches someone, minus the physical pain was how I felt when I read Contact. Mira has the ability to see someone’s memories and feelings just by touching them. It makes it hard for Mira to form relationships or even leave the house. Then she meets David. Sexy and cute David who begins to change Mira and show her that it’s going to be okay. Then a series of events begun to unravel: betrayals, lies, secrets all make for a gripping read that will make you crave more. Another addictive YA read. I love Contact! I can’t wait to get my paperback copy. 5 gazillion shiny stars!
