These are the words that transfer an astonishing power to Jacob Fielding...and they change everything. When Ophelia James, the beautiful and daring new girl in town, suggests they use the power to save others, Jacob readily accepts. But with every heroic act, the power grows stronger and soon feels more like a curse. After all, how do you decide who lives and who dies?

Jacob has only thirteen days to harness this terrifying power...and to answer a chilling question: What if, in order to save the girl he loves, he has to kill her?

Review: Part Final Destination, part Great American Hero...

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Jacob actually has a superpower - he's indestructible. He is given this power and receives no instruction on how to use it or what all it can do.  What will happen when he starts using the power to save others. Can he live with the choices he makes? Can he save himself and those he loves in just thirteen days. The intriguing plot keeps you up late reading and the suspense grabs you. I wasn't a fan of how much Jacob was pushed around by Ophelia (Oh) because he loved her. I really liked the characters Milo, Mr. Coffin, and Father Tim. Mr. Carman has written a captivating thriller and I'd love to read more of his books!
