Waiting on Wednesday: Touch

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home. 

Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized. 

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe. A secret Kale will kill to protect.

I first heard about Touch  about a month ago when a fellow blogger wrote a glowing review about how awesome she thought it was. Since then I have stumbled  across numerous people who are absolutely singing praises about how much they love this new series. I'm now eagerly anticipating its release in November so that I can see if it will live up to all the hype that I've been reading about it! From what I've read in the synopsis it certainly sounds promising! While I can already guess what Dez's secret is, I'm interested to see exactly how the plot will pan out. Here's hoping that this will be a great new book to take my breath away!

The book sounds interesting, but I'm not super hip about the cover. His eyes seem sinister. :)
