Her mother is dead. Her father has lost his job. And thanks to an experimental procedure, Liz is now able to ‘download’ the contents of every brain around her with a simple touch. Forced to hide from both the federal government and a darkling group of morally deficient scientists known as the Coalition determined to exploit her abilities, she moves with her father to the bucolic coal town of Pound, West Virginia.
But the hunt for Liz and her abilities hasn’t ended, and her hopes for peace are shattered when she inadvertently downloads the enigmatic Carey Drake, whose unusual good looks and charm conceal a secret as shocking as her own. Stunned by the knowledge that she has found someone else who has extraordinary abilities, Liz finds herself drawn to Carey, discovering a deep attraction, and dares to hope for the first time she might find love.
But when an agent of the Coalition begins stalking her, Liz must find a way to work with the government agency she most mistrusts as she strives to build a longed-for normal life and take down the agent who has tracked her down. Caught up in a struggle to save herself and those she loves, the girl who sees all is blind to true danger until it is too late.
Cindy's Review: At first, I was hesitant to read this book. I thought there would be no romance and not much young adult stuff like school and popularity. But boy, was I wrong! Just the first page blew me off.
The book kind of started off at Liz's new school. Awesome book man! I love this book. And Carey is just so hot. I just don't think the name is that appealing though.
This book have just the right romance, the right suspense. The right mysterious moments. The right everything. Omg. So, yes, I definitely recommend this book to suspense and romance lovers.
This book reminds me a bit of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi because of the whole touch thing going on. If you touch someone, they die. If you touch someone, you can download all there memories. Both main characters are girls with about the same age and both are 'special' The only big difference is that Shatter Me is dystopian young adult and At First Touch is more of a contemporary young adult filled suspense.
Kind of also like Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris which is also a contemporary young adult filled with suspense.
At First Touch is also like Shatter Me because of the hot, sexy guy the girl meets and starts dating. *squeals* Both Carey and Adam is so sexy though. ;))))))
Anyways, I had a really wonderful time reading this book and zoomed through it in no time. ;D
I rate this book a 9!
Mattie Dunman is a lifelong resident of "Wild & Wonderful" West Virginia, and has dreamed of being a writer since she first held a pen in hand.
Mattie has pursued several useless degrees to support this dream, and presently enjoys teaching (or tormenting, as the case may be) college students the dying art of public speaking. She spends most of her free time writing, but also indulges in reading and traveling.
She is the proud owner of an adorably insane American Eskimo named Finn, and a tyrant cat named Bella, who take up more of her attention than they probably should.
Mattie is currently working on the second book in the First Touch series, and is ecstatic about her new release, At First Touch.
