Summary:  
 
 Dancia Lewis doesn’t seem all that special. And that’s not just because of her average grades or less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia’s mediocrity is a calculated cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just . . . happen. Cars skid. Structures collapse. Usually someone gets hurt.

When recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia suspects the recruiters know more about her “talent” than they’re letting on. Once she arrives at the mysterious school, Dancia worries that her days of living under the radar are over. Even the hottest guy on campus treats her like she’s one-of-a-kind.

And then there’s her elusive new friend, Jack, who thinks Delcroix is hiding a dangerous secret. Dancia doesn’t know who to trust. A battle is brewing behind the gates of the Academy, and Dancia may have no choice but to pick sides even if it means finally stepping out of the shadows.

 
Okay. So this might be one of the few books that I don’t have a book boyfriend in. Humm. One was just too freaking nice. He was too perfect. Way to sunshiny and rainbow-like. EVERYBODY likes him. Hell- that’s one of his talents. *rolling my eyes here* I’d feel like I’d always have to live up to him. And then boy numero dos. He’s a bad boy. A tad bit paranoid. The only person he actually likes is Her. Sweet right? Well I just got some bad vibes out of him. So no to him to.
I guess Trevor could be my book boyfriend if he wanted too…he only has like half a page in the book though…
3.8 <– That's the rating

“I suppose there’s no good answer to that, Danny. I wish there was. But if you take the wrong, path, something deep inside you will feel twisted. There are times when that will be the only way to know the right from the wrong.” 
 
It was addicting, enticing and rather enchanting…There were twists and turns and mystery and romance (I love romance) It had amazing friends and an awesome grandma.
I liked it. Didn’t totally fall in love. Wanted to fall in love. But…nah. Yes, I would like to read the next book. I want to see where He went. What’s really going on in the academy? How powerful is She really? Andd whooo will she end up with? Huh?
TELL ME!!! I MUST KNOW!!!
