Book: Evermore by Alyson Noel
Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal
This story was so much like The Vampire Diaries, which I also recently read, that I kept getting them mixed up. They guys in these two books even have the same name! Talk about confusing.
Anyway, there's the girl who's all depressed because her parents have just died. Then she goes to school and of course there's the new guy that everyone is ogling, but she fights it. Yet, they are irresistibly drawn together, and resistance is futile. Then in the process of the relationship, she learns things about him that are pretty creepy and disconcerting, and not quite what you think.
However, this one has a bit of a twist because Ever has powers, she sees dead people, and auras, and everybody's thoughts.
Everyone's that is, except the mystery guy.
Bottom line, I enjoyed the story and it kept me turning pages, but I think I'm a bit burned out by this whole familiar plot line. Time for something different, I say. I'll probably read the sequels some day, but I'm not running to do so.
