Description:

There's something about the new guy at Crossroads High...
Most sixteen-year-olds have friends.
Aden Stone has four human souls living inside him:
One can time travel.
One can raise the dead.
One can possess another human.
One can tell the future.

Everyone thinks he's crazy, which is why he's spent his entire life shuffled between mental institutions and juvie. All of that is about to change, however. For months Aden has been having visions of a beautiful girl--a girl who carries centuries-old secrets. A girl who will either save him or destroy him.

Together they'll enter a dark world of intrigue and danger...but not everyone will come out alive.








Aden has four voices inside his head, voices that all have a unique power. Aden doesn't know how they got there but knows that they have been with him his entire life. One can time travel, one can see when someone is going to die, one can raise the dead and another can possess bodies. Where they are inside Aden, he has all of these powers. 

One day while in a cemetary cleaning up the mess from accidently raising the dead, he sees a girl. Even though she isn't close he gets the wind knocked out of him, and all the voices in his head have suddenly gone quiet, something that has never happened before. Aden decides he needs to know more about this girl and what she is doing to him.


Mary Ann saw Aden in a cemetery on her way to see her friend Penny. When she locked eyes with him her breath caught in her chest and then it made her fall on her butt...painfully! She doesn't stick around to see why. While eating with her friend at a restaurant Aden just so happens to come in. Mary Ann gets the same feeling as before.


Aden has seen a dark haired beauty in a vision he has had repeatedly, is Mary Ann that dark haired beauty? Aden can't seem to place her but he knows that he knows her from somewhere... so does Eve, one of the ghosts stuck in his head. So who is Mary Anne? and how is she sending the ghosts in his head away and giving him the much needed peace he has wanted for so long?


Okay so I get that this story is supposed to be about Aden and his quest to free the spirits in his head, and to find out how he is going to die. But throughout the book I wasn't really so much interested in Aden's story as I was Mary Ann's. I felt that the author concentrated more on Mary Ann, and gave her a much more interesting and complex character than Aden. I found that I was more drawn to what was going to happen to her than the main character of the book, which kind of disturbed me. Don't get me wrong I liked the whole Aden story, about how he absorbed these ghosts into his head, how they got there and so on, but I felt the main focus was definitely Mary Ann and how she was able to calm Aden's mind, and how he knew her. I LOVED Riley! I thought his character was very well deleoped and at times was laughing out loud at his over protectiveness . It was very cute!  Over all I enjoyed the story.. I did feel that it was lacking something... I just can't place what it was lacking.
