This book is about a teenager named Eva Walker who has an interesting infliction--she feels emotions whenever she touches someone. She's had it since she was young, and Eva doesn't know what life is like without this "gift." However, it creates some distance between her and others, especially potential boyfriends, which is difficult for her. If that weren't enough, her parents are really her aunt and uncle, and she has four brothers/sisters who are really her cousins. It's a complicated life, but it gets even more confusing when she meets a boy, her first real boyfriend. This is an interesting book on life's circumstances, complications and the way in which things work out.
