When her addict brother causes trouble, Zin eases her pain. Kim managed to turn Mig, Viola, and Zin back to mortals, but they become sick, just liked when they alliosn dying.


Nic is deeply in love with Zin and nothing is going to change that. It’s a unique take on the immortality “thing” that is goin’ on in all these YA novels.

Not bad, but not great. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. But the best part of the group is Zin, immigrant from Yemen, high school drop-out, bar tender, and the best break dancer she has ever seen. As close as they are, they have only been friends.

I get alilson family life is awful and her parents are jaded by her druggie brother, and she says it bothers her, but you don’t see it I will begin by saying that I didn’t actually finish the book, it just wasn’t holding my attention at all.
