Book Description

 April 17, 2012
Jessie moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school let out for summer break. Her newly single mother and Jessie move in with grandma Gayle. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead.

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie.

My Review:

When Jessie's alcoholic father left them and her mother can't find a job,  they are forced to move from New York to North Carolina to live with her Grandmother Gayle. Gayle is a very modern woman who does not like being called Grandma, She takes Jessie with her to friends and there Jessie meets Caleb again, a boy she remembers at scary, creepy and he wanted to hold her all the time, but now he is a nice guy and handsome. when they shake hands she feel sparks going through her and it makes her feel good. they always need lights and for emergency they carry a L.E.D flashlight.

They meet up the next day and he explains to her about what they are, Light Tamers, they absorb light and its energy. Her grandmother knew and installed special lightening in her house before Jessie arrived.
She meets Caleb's friend Amber a nice, messy girl that helps take care of her father, who lost his legs.

One day her father returns and Jessie finds out he did not abandons her but left to get sober. He explains to her more.................... It is a fun book, very well told in the spirits of teenagers, it is light and refreshing! and also  fitting for YA readers.
