Juliette is locked in an asylum where she has been for the last 264 days. She has a strange condition that she doesn’t understand wherein those that touch her die. Juliette’s family agreed to give her up and felt as if she was a mistake.

One day Juliette is informed that she will be getting a new roommate. Only she never expected her roommate to be a boy she grew up with. Once Alex moves in to her room, Juliette’s entire world is flipped upside down.

Alex and Juliette must fight against The Reestablishment that placed them in the asylum in order to get their lives back.

I don’t want to say anything more than that because this book was so amazing that I think everyone who reads it should go into it with barely any info.

This is the first book in a trilogy that I cannot wait to finish! Absolutely amazing book. This book is definitely on my top five list of all time.
