Synopsis

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.

Overall a pretty good book
May 2nd, 2014
For an inexpensive price of $0.00, I am not complaining. The premise is interesting (with the whole PSS thing) but the writing could be better. I have not, for once, sympathized or empathized with the lead female, Olivia. I felt like she was whiny and personally unlikeable. There were definitely parts of the book that I skipped reading because I felt like they were unnecessary. The authors spent so much time describing the setting, the location, the background but they just didn't work for me. I had to skip those parts since they were very poorly described and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't visualize them. But overall, since I didn't pay a penny for this, I would definitely recommend it. It's a great book to read to pass time!
