Iris by Scott Stabile from my Kindle stack to read this week. I was sent this book by the author in mid-November. Here is the description from Amazon:
Sixteen-year-old Iris Capaldi led an entirely ordinary life before the accident. There were no make-out sessions with her best friend, Benji. No homicidal skinheads. No unexplainable flying creatures. And no ridiculously cute, teenaged aliens. Since the accident, however, the bizarre has become the ordinary. It’s an unusual day if she’s not kissing Jamen, her extraterrestrial classmate, arguing with her impulsive, dead mother, or almost dying herself. Suspenseful, insightful and fun, Iris effortlessly blends love, loss and the paranormal in an unpredictable teen romance that will enthrall fans of The Hunger Games and Twilight, as well as anyone drawn to the endless possibilities of first love . . . no matter how extraordinary the circumstances.
Two hours before my alarm is set to go off, I break into laughter and kick my legs up and down on the bed. I can't help it. It's six a.m. on October 9th, and no amount of Red Bull could wire me this much. I am, at last, sixteen years old and will have my driver's license in just a few hours.
