Publisher's Summary

Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague, the "Jenny pox." She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town.
Then she meets the one boy she can touch, and her life begins to change. Jenny feels herself falling for him, but first Jenny must learn to use the deadly pox inside her to confront her new enemy, a girl who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.

Great story. Not for kids or YA.

I adored this book and the thought that went into it. I was a little surprised by the teen drinking and blatant drug use but wasn't put off.
Thus is a gritty story of a girl who is persecuted by her peers and a popular girl who becomes obsessed with torturing her.
They both have supernatural powers. They both want the same boy. SOMEONE PLEASE GO BACK AND EDIT THIS AUDIOBOOK! AUDIBLE YOU SHOULD BE PAYING BETTER ATTENTION. The atrocious audio editing almost ruined a wonderful story. At one point the repetition is so bad I forgot what they were talking about.

This recording needs an editor

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Editing. See narration comment below.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The premise was a break from the common story line.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Ashlyn Selich?

Only if the narrator gets an editor. There are multiple locations where the narrator repeats a line in an attempt to get a better reading. Unfortunately the earlier versions are not removed. This gets very annoying when the narrator repeats the same line 3 or 4 times.

Any additional comments?

Many young adult novels can appeal to adults too. Unless you want to relive the worst parts of high school, this is not recommended for those who were not in the cool or popular crowd. The memories this book brought out are far from pleasant.
