Eva Walker is a seventeen-year-old math genius. And if that doesn’t do wonders for her popularity, there’s another thing that makes it even worse: when she touches another person or anything that belongs to them — from clothes to textbooks to cell phones — she sees a vision of their emotions. She can read a person’s fears and anxieties, their secrets and loves … and what they have yet to learn about calculus. This is helpful for her work as a math tutor, but it means she can never get close to people. Eva avoids touching anyone and everyone. People think it’s because she’s a clean freak — with the emphasis on freak — but it’s all she can do to protect herself from other people’s issues.
Then one day a new student walks into Eva’s life. His jacket gives off so much emotional trauma that she falls to the floor. Eva is instantly drawn to Zenn, a handsome and soulful artist who also has a troubled home life, and her feelings only grow when she realizes that she can touch Zenn’s skin without having visions. But when she discovers the history that links them, the truth threatens to tear the two apart.
This book was given to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
When I read the blurb for this book, I knew I was going to like it.
But I was wrong. I didn’t like it, I LOVED IT.
I’m going to say it outright. Friends, Romans, countrymen, READ THIS BOOK.
Eva, our girl, is probably one of the best female characters I have ever read. She’s the kind of girl who saves her Math homework for last just so she could savor it. The kind of girl who counts sidewalk squares and hops over each one that is a prime number. The girl whose phone passcode is the first four digits of pi.
She’s smart and hilarious but she’s also flawed and did stupid things just like the rest of us.
And she likes the library.
“I like the library… I like it better than most people. It’s quiet. It has substance.”
Zenn (cool name, by the way), on the other hand, is really artistic, and hardworking, and cute, and sweet, and awesome.. and okay, I just love the guy. Really. He has officially earned a spot in my book boyfriends list.
Aside from the main characters, I adored Eva’s siblings, the quadruplets. The characters were all very real and I felt close to them. I felt like I got to know them and saw them grow throughout the book.
Honestly, at one point, it made me cry even though no one died. I only cry in books when someone dies but it was so heartbreaking and complicated. I felt really bad for them and a tear just rolled down my cheek! 😂
Seriously, I recommend this to all my friends who love YA contemporary romance. A lot of the scenes in this book are very swoon-worthy. It’s so cute and fluffy.
Friends, please buy and read this book when it comes out and spazz with me.
