Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”
On her 17th birthday, everything will change for Violet Eden. The boy she loves will betray her. Her enemy will save her. She will have to decide just how much she’s willing to sacrifice.
A centuries old war between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity chooses a new fighter. It’s a battle Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. If angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden.
LINCOLN: He’s been Violet’s one anchor, her running partner and kickboxing trainer. Only he never told her he’s Grigori-part human, part angel-and that he was training her for an ancient battle between Angels and Exiles.
PHOENIX: No one knows where his loyalties lie, yet he’s the only one there to pick up the pieces and protect her after Lincoln’s lies. In a world of dark and light, he is all shades of gray.
Two sides: Angel or Exile.
Two guys: Lincoln or Phoenix.
The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity…

Our hearts are broken
The two ladies who bring you this blog of cheap reads are sisters. Suddenly yesterday afternoon our 45-year-old brother John suffered a fatal massive heart attack. Our loss is great; our hearts are broken.
John worked for years at the local General Motors dealership, managing the parts department and body shop and most recently in sales.
He served in his state’s National Guard for 27 years; including deployments in Afghanistan and Kosovo. John had a wide circle of friends and knew just about everyone in his hometown.
His family lived with our 95-year-old father. John tended the cattle and all things around the farm so Dad could continue to live there.
John’s wife of just a few years is devastated as are his children and step-children. If you are a praying person, please pray for his widow Sherrilyn and his children Jessi, James, Nicole, Sara and Abby. Please pray for Dad, too.
I’ve taken the comment moderation off so that you can post without my approval. I’m sorry if spam comes through. The site may be a bit shortened the next few days as our family gathers to cry, remember and grieve together.
We are John’s sisters –
Paula and Susan

Outside, Anika Dragomir is all lip gloss and blond hair—the third most popular girl in school.
Inside, she’s a freak. A mix of dark thoughts, diabolical plots, and, if local chatter is to be believed, vampire DNA. After all, her father is from Romania. Everyone else in Nebraska is about as American as an apple pie . . . wrapped in a flag . . . on the Fourth of July.
Spider stew. That’s what Anika is made of. But she keeps it under wraps to maintain her social position. One step out of line and Becky Vilhauser, first most popular girl in school, will make her life a living hell.
So when former loner Logan McDonough shows up one September hotter, smarter, and more mysterious than ever, Anika knows she can’t get involved. It would be insane to throw away her social safety for a nerd. So what if that nerd is now a black-leather-jacket-wearing dreamboat, and his loner status is clearly the result of his troubled home life?
Who cares if the right girl could help him with all that, maybe even save him from it . . . ?
Logan. Who needs him when Jared Kline, the bad boy every girl dreams of, is asking her on dates? Who?
