YA paranormal romance
Sixteen-year-old Tessa Chase knows way too much about what others are feeling—an unfortunate side effect of being an Empath.
She would give anything to get everyone else out of her head and be normal. But when her ability grows and she can suddenly see the things no one else seems to notice, Tessa isn’t entirely sure she’s sane. Then they tell her they are Guardian angels and she is sure of it. Following a forced stint in the psychiatric unit, Tessa decides to take refuge with the invisible angels. They promise to teach her how to harness her ability if she’ll use her unique skills to help them find someone. What she finds instead is herself fascinated by John Warren, an angel with good looks, a sharp tongue, and whose touch sends her spinning. As their search draws them deep into a cycle of kidnappings and murders, Tessa realizes she will have to choose between saving a friend and sacrificing herself to stop the killer.
First 150 words:
Day bled into night and thousands of screams filled the air.
Tonight was the night where the spirited came out to play, when the teenagers whooped and hollered as their stomachs bottomed out and the intensity of sound made everyone in a giddy mood.
It was Memorial Day weekend. Peddlers Fair weekend. For most people, this fair was a time to have fun or to sell hand made objects to the tourists.
I was on the opposite side of the peddlers fair and in no mood to be giddy. For me, this was hell.
Every year, my mom and I came to the same place, selling the same wares that hadn’t sold the year before. But this year, as I stood in front of the peddler’s tents, it felt different. I wrapped my sleeves securely around my frozen hands. At least it wasn't raining this year.
