It takes only half a secondâ¦</ span>
â¦Like those commercials where a crash test dummy rockets forward at high speed and slams into a wall.
â¦In that instant, every thought in Emma Lynn Walshâs head collides with mineâevery thought, memory, hope, disappointment and dream.
â¦I open my eyes to see Dr. Walsh peering at me, a puzzled expression on her face.
âLetâgoâofâme,â I order though clenched teeth.
Mira wants to die. Sheâs attempted suicide twice already, and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that personâs psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira, itâs a curse from which she cannot escape.
To make matters worse, Miraâs father is being investigated in the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of a miracle drug. Shortly after Miraâs mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her âconditionâ Mira knows the truthâ¦but proving it just might get her killed!
