Review: Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman

You are indestructible.

These are the words that transfer an astonishing power to Jacob Fielding….. and they change everything. When Ophelia James, the beautiful and daring new girl in town, suggests they use the power to save others, Jacob readily accepts. But with every heroic act, the power grows stronger and soon feels more like a curse. After all, how do you decide who lives and who dies?

Jacob has only thirteen days to harness this terrifying power….and to answer a chilling question: what if, in order to save the girl he loves, he has to kill her?

I would give this book two and a half out of five stars. Parts of it were amazing….other parts? Not so much.

This book was unique. I was drawn to it because it was different than anything I had ever read before. It was one of those rare books that I bought without ever hearing about it before. The back cover captivated me that much.
