When seventeen-year-old Melissa Torani falls for cute but nerdy newcomer Daniel Florez, she has no idea that meeting him, and sharing a deep soul kiss, will change her life forever. No longer an ordinary girl, she’s plunged into a world of gang-bangers, Cuban exiles, and FBI agents. And what’s going on with her brain? How come she’s suddenly so much smarter than she used to be?
Just one kiss from Daniel plunges Melissa into a science fiction world-- have Daniel’s brain cells been leaking into her? How can that be possible? And yet she’s reading faster than she ever has before, scoring higher on school tests, and even helping her parents understand what’s wrong with her brother, the Big Mistake.
Melissa’s wry, funny take on adolescence, falling love and getting out from under her parents will draw you in. Fans of Richelle Mead and Stephenie Meyer will fall in love with Melissa and Daniel as they depend on their brains and their deep emotional connection to survive-- and maybe even graduate from high school along the way.
