From Goodreads:
Q: If the boy you love commits a crime, would you turn him in?

Sadie Ames is a type-A teenager from the wealthy suburbs. She's been accepted to the prestigious Mind Corps Fellowship program, where she'll spend six weeks as an observer inside the head of Ford, a troubled boy with a passion for the crumbling architecture of the inner city. There's just one problem: Sadie's fallen in love with him.

Q: What if the crime is murder?

Ford Winters is haunted by the murder of his older brother, James. As Sadie falls deeper into his world, dazzled by the shimmering pinpricks of color that form images in his mind, she begins to think she knows him. Then Ford does something unthinkable.

Q: What if you saw it happen from inside his mind?

Back in her own body, Sadie is faced with the ultimate dilemma. With Ford's life in her hands, she must decide what is right and what is wrong. And how well she can really ever know someone, even someone she loves.

Whoa, way to think outside the box, Michele Jaffe! I was so excited when I saw that one of my favorite writers had a new release. I was expecting a mystery (classic Michele Jaffe) but this went above and beyond! I loved the ending. Fantastic. And there’s a great twist at the end. Read it!


  1. I loved Rosebush and really want to read this one too!! I'm glad you liked it... makes me feel better about going out of my comfort zone :)
