Synopsis: From #1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike comes a brand-new fascinating and seductive new novel about a girl with a mysterious ability—but one that carries an unimaginable cost.
From the moment Fred met Aja, he knew she was different. And she was.
Aja had a gift. But her gift came with a price.
After a shocking sequence of events, Fred must look back at their relationship, and piece together all of their shared moments, so he can finally understand Aja’s precious gift…and its devastating repercussions.
My thoughts: I picked up this book with really high hopes… that fell as soon as I began to read the second chapter. This book started of really well, climaxed, the main character’s got into a fight… and then it dropped to a faint heartbeat. I am always sceptical when faced with a love story, but this one was terrible. I made a friend read it whilst we were on holiday together, and she agreed with me. (No threatening necessary.)
Strange Girl had a good plot, and I feel that if it had been written by any other author, I think it could have pulled through.
I give this book 2 stars.
