Kori Kitzler is the "dark angel" of her high school: beautiful, mysterious, the subject of rumors. Serena Moore is just an average girl: unassuming, not sure exactly who she is or who she wants to be. But then a seemingly chance encounter ignites a fateful friendship - allowing Kori to draw Serena into her world.

When the girls are given an assignment to list five things they would never dream could really happen - their five ways to tempt fate - Serena doesn't take it very seriously. But then a tragedy leaves Serena shocked, alone, and in possession of Kori's five secret impossible possibilities. Can Serena complete her best friend's list, or will she leave Kori's dreams undone?

Did I pick this book up because of it's cover? Why, yes. I did. But I'm so glad I did!

I absolutely loved this book. It was a lot more heavy and intense than I expected it to be - but it pulled me in and I almost couldn't put it down. There were several twists that kept you guessing throughout the story. It's a very emotional book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I really am a fan of realistic fiction - and this one hit the "realistic" part on the head. It's a little more accurate to how I think teen girls react/behave/etc. It's not all sunshine and bubbles :).

I would definitely recommend this book to almost anyone. It's even appropriate for that middle-age reader that likes to read higher level stuff. It's a great story that can be appreciated by all readers.

There are more reviews online: Here, here, and here. There are lots more - good reviews, mostly. So you should go read this one :)!
