Seventeen-year-old Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky. 

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

3 Stars

This book was… okay. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great. It was just okay. I think it could’ve been better because it’s a very original idea that I liked very much. It just wasn’t a 5-star book for me.

I won’t say the writing was bad, because it wasn’t. There just was something missing. The action started from the first sentence and for the most part in the beginning I couldn’t follow it because it was going so quickly and I didn’t understand half of it. Which made it very difficult for me to get into and make a connection with the characters. Of course I liked the characters, but there too was something missing. And because of that, I didn’t really get the romance either. I can’t really explain it and I hate it when that happens. It leaves me so conflicted about the book. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. That’s all I can say about it really. And maybe it’s just me that can’t make that connection and stuff, I don’t know. But it is what it is.

I do recommend this book to people who like paranormal books. I’ve seen other reviews of people who liked this book a lot so please give it a try. The fact that I don’t like it as much as I wanted, doesn’t mean you won’t either.

My god I’m so frustrated right now! I hate it when I just can’t explain why I feel this way about a book. I’m going to bang my head against the wall until I get it now.
