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.
This recording needs an editor
Editing. See narration comment below.
The premise was a break from the common story line.
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.
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.
