Ok, I dont normally post things like this in the genre threads, but i just wanted to share with you all the best book I just finished.  

ISBN-13: 9781453728406
ISBN-10: 1453728406
  Jenny Pox (Jenny Pox, #1)

Jenny Pox (Paperback)
 

 Jenny Pox

 

OH. MY. GAWD! This book was AMAZING! It is very rare in a lifetime that one stumbles across a new author and is simply blown away by the writing style and story itself. This is one to remember.

I was far too eager to start reading jenny Pox that I ordered it on the Amazon Kindle App (which is free for your PC) The book was only $3.99 on Amazon. Trust me, it was worth far more than $3.99.

Do not let the cutesy cover of this book fool you. This book is several genres. Young adult, Paranormal romance, and mainly, HORROR!

Our main character, Jenny, is a small town girl with a big-time curse. Any living creature, be it plant, animal or human will die if she touches them. She becomes a lonely outcast, and has to wear gloves 24/7 to keep from infecting anyone with her "Jenny Pox" Things start to look up for Jenny when she realises that another boy in her town, Seth, has the opposite power as her, the power to heal with his touch. She then learns she can touch Seth without killing him, and he is the ONLY person she can touch. However there is another dark force threatning her and Seths relationship. Ashleigh. Mean, evil, manipulating Ashleigh. She makes plans to turn the town into a deadly army, and Jenny has to learn to stand up and fight for what she believes in, and they learn the true source of their love for one another.
The story as a whole as well as the ending, left me breathless.

Beware, this story is not for the faint of heart, there is sex, drug use, and a ton of gore and murder involved. There are political and religious views involved as well so if you cannot be too thin skinned to appreciate this work of art. There certainly are deeper messages in this book, and i can totally relate to Jenny and how she was isolated and suffered because she was different.

I highly recommend this book! So much so that ive contacted the author twice now to praise his work. This is a great book and i cannot say enough good things about it!

So bizarre. I searched the B&N website up and down to find that book and lo and behold, it's there today for $2.99. I bought it and will be reading it next. Thanks for the recommendation A!

I read it. I thought it was OK, but it wasn't that great, IMO. Ashleigh just made me sick to my stomach. Jenny was kinda flat as a main character. Mildly entertaining though.
