Brogen Mathers can’t deal with teen drama… As an empath, she is constantly bombarded with other people’s energies. Despite coping techniques taught by her psychologist mother, it’s often too much to bear, forcing her to avoid most activities a typical high school junior would enjoy. Jay Wilken won’t let his past define him… A dead mother and an alcoholic father brought Jay to Stanton, but he doesn’t want pity. His good looks, charisma, and friendly nature quickly win over the whole student body, but he has his eye on one girl…Brogen. Brogen can’t believe anyone could be so genuinely nice. It has to be an act, right? But when Jay literally saves her from deadly jaws, she has to admit he’s exactly what he appears, and he’s worth risking the potential emotional upheaval. “Drama” might as well be Becca Grant’s middle name… Another newcomer to Stanton, Becca’s blonde beauty and abundant attitude shoots her straight to the top of the popularity charts—and she believes Jay belongs right there beside her. Accustomed to getting exactly what she wants, she launches a relentless mean-girl campaign to shake up Brogen and claim Jay for her own. Everything changes with a devastating diagnosis… When Jay learns he has a rare and potentially fatal disorder, he keeps it secret and begins to push Brogen away to spare her future pain—which is exactly the sort of opening Becca is waiting for. As Jay’s well-meaning deception unravels, Brogen realizes there is much more than her heart at stake… But how far is she willing to go to fight for someone she loves?

Review :
Three letters for one book ?
Those would be “WOW” …
And “Rarity” by D.A. Roach is the reason for those 3 letters.
I read in some review some time ago that YA novels were “cheesy love stories” … yes sure – I remember those – I got them every Friday when I was a teenager at the newspaper stand – they weren’t actual books but more like weekly magazines.
The only thing that changed from week to week were the names of the leads and I was always like there were about 5 rotating plotlines.
But the new kind of YA novel could not be further away from those magazines. The new definition is a book like Rarity. I could spoiler the book from beginning to end – but that is not my style – I strongly suggest you simply trust me when I tell you “ did you read the blurb? And you think it might be interesting? – Then read the book you will love it”
I am not even sure if I would place a label like “paranormal” to it – sure there might be a little touch to it because auf the lead being an empath – but that’s not really paranormal is it …
It was used more in such a common way that anyone could relate to having such feelings. Even I admit to have premonitions sometimes and I learned to listen to them (mostly).
The leading characters were just great and the plotline was wonderful… not sure what else to say except
Find out for yourself … READ IT…
