synopsis from goodreads:
One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start–a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.
But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there–every student, every teacher–has psychic abilities, ‘gifts and talents,’ they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend–Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.
Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye–much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy–if only they can do so without destroying each other first.
I loved this book! The moment I saw the synopsis from this book, I knew I’d want to read this and I really enjoyed every page! I read this book in one day, I couldn’t stop, there was no point where I could have put this one down!
a story you enjoy?
First of all we need a good story and a intriguing plotline, add in some paranormal mystery and some surprising moments. Then we need ( which is even more important) characters you can fall in love with. A main character you can identify yourself with and of course … a swoon worthy mysterious guy! Oh and of course, the love with some sexy moments…! *le sigh*
So there is Violet who always had this visions, but of course she could tell no one around her. She tried when she was younger but people got freaked out about that. When she arrives at Winterhaven ( a expensive boarding school) she realizes that the school is not like a normal school. Every kid has certain gifts, some small, others really powerful. Finally she makes friends and doesn’t feel like a freak.
Life’s good… Until, she discovers mystery after mystery and learns something about herself that she would have never ever guess! Nor will you 😉
“The Aidan effect?”“Yeah, he makes us all gooey and speechless..(..)”Haven, p29
Then.. there is *hold your breath girls* Aidan, the mysterious guy that is of course the most gorgeous boy she’s ever seen. But, he’s even more mysterious than all the other kids at school, yet she’s supposed to work with him to catch up with the missing school stuff.
Chemistry! Right from the start those two had a wonderful chemistry…and also a sexy one *winks*! There was no denial that those two would fall for each other, they simply had to!
Violet wants to find out the mystery behind this guy and when she does…. *whooops* no spoilers, you need to read yourself!
But, this book holds so many secrets, it’s awesome!! Of course, some of the stuff you might guess, but I promise you there is so sooo much more! The plot twists and turns in an incredible way! Truly, apart from the wonderful relationship between Aidan and Violet the surprising moments are the best.
