drey's thoughts:
Ever is an orphan whose near-death experience made her psychic (a la Sookie Stackhouse), and able to see ghosts (a la Harper Connelly). Apologies for the Charlaine Harris references, I must have her on my brain or something! Well, her sister's ghost, anyway. She tries to drown out the former by listening to really loud music and covering up in sweatshirts and sunglasses, and doesn't do much about the latter because she's feeling guilty that she survived when nobody else in her family did.

After wringing her out, life throws her a curve ball in the form of a new classmate, Damen. Who, somehow, can tamp down her psychic ability with his touch. And (of course) is totally hot. And what do you know? She runs (of course!). Parts of Evermore are so predictable--angsty teenager? Check. Hot guy totally checking out said angsty teenager? Check. Hot guy's gal pal not happy about his checking out angsty teenager? Check. Does this start to sound like a certain popular YA series yet? But, wait. There are no vampires. No werewolves. Just immortals and psychics. A bit of messing-with-Ever's-head. And some payback.

Evermore is an enjoyable enough read, and I'll probably pick up the next one, just to see where it goes from here.
