'She throws her head back and pushes her chest forward and lets go a huge blast right into the centre of his body. The rivulets and streams of red scarring run across his chest and up around his throat. She'd put her hand on his heart and stopped him dead.' Suddenly - tomorrow or the day after - girls find that with a flick of their fingers, they can inflict agonizing pain and even death.

Ok so more than two words. This book is fascinating. It makes you think all the way through and still manages to whammy you at the end. As for the performance - Wow!!

The first thing that struck me was the performance of the narrator Mars Lindh. Her accent and cadence was beautiful, even lyrical. The second thing that struck me was the fact that the book was written in the first person. That and the short, incredibly detailed sentences. My whole attention was captured immediately and then as the story began to unfold I had to keep in listening because I simply had to know what happened next. Excellent all round. I hope to see more from both the author and narrator.
