Status: Finished  |  Genre: Fantasy  |  House: Booksie Classic
Portsville had always been normal and boring. Nevertheless, it was the make shift place for tourists. Harlow Cross had always loved Portsville, even despite its sometimes boring atmosphere. And quite frankly, she didn't mind the dull lifestyle. She knew it wouldn't be long before trouble found her; it had a way of sneaking up on her. It always seemed to find her, and her stubbornness always seemed to make things worse. But when Callan Gradwell unexpectedly shows up, things start to spiral out of control. Suddenly Portsville seems to be the least boring place imaginable.
Soon Harlow starts to realize that Callan is hiding something intense. Questions start to arise. Like, why is Harlow suddenly causing the people she touches to get ill? And why is the cute, but persistant new kid Luke following her around? Or why, when she's around Callan, does a prickling feeling of fear (and overwhelming desire) envelope her?
Despite the people bound to keep her from finding out the truth, Harlow sets out to find answers--about herself, about Portsville, about Callan--before it's too late.
