So, this one starts out like a normal contemporary. Stella needs a heart, and, well, she gets one. So life goes on. But then things get start to get paranormal weird. I really loved how this had a great blend of both.
This one gets creepier and creepier as the story goes on. It was so worth the read. I do wish it would have been a little faster paced as then it would have been a die-hard 5 stars. Unfortunately, parts of the story drag.
The ending ties everything up, so no cliffhanger here, folks. And although it does have a love triangle, it works for this one VERY WELL!
Go into this one knowing it's:
Light love triangle
Stella Cross's heart is poisoned. After years on the transplant waiting list, she's running out of hope that she'll ever see her eighteenth birthday. Then, miraculously, Stella receives the transplant she needs to survive.
Determined to embrace everything she came so close to losing, Stella throws herself into her new life. But her recovery is marred with strange side effects: Nightmares. Hallucinations. A recurring pain that flares every day at the exact same moment. Then Stella meets Levi Zin, the new boy on everyone's radar at her Seattle prep school. Stella has never felt more drawn to anyone in her life, and soon she and Levi can barely stand to be apart.
Stella is convinced that Levi is her soul mate. Why else would she literally ache for him when they are apart?
After all, the heart never lies...does it?
