Starred by PW and SLJ! Now in paperback, Rachel Ward's gripping debut psycho-thriller that pairs futuristic sci-fi with a tender, touchingly real love story. Includes a teaser to the sequel!
Ever since the day her mother died, Jem has known about the numbers. Numbers that pop into her head when she looks into someone's eyes. They're dates, the numbers. Dates predicting with brute accuracy each person's death. Burdened by such horrible knowledge, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. Maybe they can find happiness together, if only in the brief time that remains before his expiration date. But on a trip to London, Jem foresees a chilling chain of events: The city's a target. The clock's running out. The countdown is on to a blowup!

If 15-year-old Jem looks into people's eyes, she sees their numbers--numbers that foretell that person's death date. Naturally, she avoids eye contact and, as a result, is considered shifty and weird. She makes no friends until Spider, a tall, skinny black classmate forces the issue. Reluctantly, Jem lowers her defenses, letting Spider into her life. To her horror, she discovers that his time in this life is nearly at an end. As one mishap after another plagues Jem and Spider, forcing them to go on the run, their relationship deepens. Sarah Coomes portrays young people especially well. Her youthful voice is energetic, and her characterizations are truthful. Rachel Ward spins an engrossing yarn, and Sarah Coomes gives it a fine reading. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
