Goodreads Summary: Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.
Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison’s condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can’t explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori—the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that’s impossible. Right?
Cindy's Review: Um. Let me see. Well. This book is okay. It just didn't hit me hard like the other books.
Well, remember the purple cover books I was talking about? Yeah. This one is the third one. I really like the title though. It sounds really cool.
Alison is the main character of this book. I don't really get her that much. I mean, she can see sounds, taste emotions, hear colors, and see her emotions in colors. She sounds high. I took this Health and Sexuality class in the summer and I learned that these are the results of getting high. The only thing that proves that Alison is not high is the swirling world that happens to high people. Either way, I still don't get her.
Another important character is Tori. I guess. I mean, Tori's the most popular girl at school. She's pretty. Ya know, popular. And Alison hates her. Alison thinks Tori is a female dog. It is all because of Tori why Alison is in a crazy house.
Mr. Faraday is a psychologist at the crazy house. He supports Alison a lot, even though he's a little fishy. I don't how old he is, but I have no idea why Alison likes him.
So one day, Alison was having an argument with Tori, which led to a fight. In the middle of fighting, Tori suddenly just disappeared. Alison went home to her mom with blood on her hands and Tori no where. The evidence somehow, points to Alison murdering Tori and hiding her, but they don't have enough proof.
Alison was like going through self-destruction, so her mom called the police. Alison, then woke up at a hospital and was soon transferred to a mad house. There, Alison works with Mr. Faraday to find where Tori really is and how to prove the Alison isn't a murderer. Mr. Faraday, basically kinda holds the key to everything.
I'm not satisfied. Well. Actually the part where Tori became Alison's friend is okay. I liked that part. I mean, who doesn't want to have a popular girl as their friend.
Sorry I'm spoiling the ending for you, but like, ewww i don't like it.
Well, I'm going to write this part in the "The Bad" section.
This book has its own unique taste. I have never read a book with the main character's unique gifts.
I don't like the romance here. It's just like eww. How old is Mr. Faraday. He's a man. He' s a little too old for Alison. Like in Fifty Shades of Grey, Christian Grey is like 27 and she's like 17 or 18. He's too old for her. And he has a weird personality. Either way, I just don't like the romance. And I"m a romantic person too.
Honestly, I kinda skimmed through the end.
Rate: (1-10): 6.5
The romance brought it down. The wacko gifts of the main character also brought it down. Well this is still a three star so it's not that bad.
