Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague. She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town, a community where a supernatural darkness seethes beneath the surface.

Then Jenny meets the one boy she can touch, and her life begins to change...but first Jenny must learn to use the deadly pox inside her to confront her lifelong enemy, a girl who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.

Not recommended for readers under eighteen.
