Publisher's Summary

Miriam is trying. Really, she is.
But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year round. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis - who's on the road half the time in his truck - is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does.
Still, she's keeping her psychic ability - to see when and how someone is going to die just by touching them - in check. But even that feels wrong, somehow. Like she's keeping a tornado stoppered up in a tiny bottle.
Then comes one bad day that turns it all on her ear.

Even better than the first!

Loved this story and found inspiration in Wendig's linguistic gems. Very impressed with the writing and its ability to influence my feelings. Plus, Mirium is a refreshing badass mess of a lead character! Can't wait to start the next book in the series.
