Review: Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan

Jenny's touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague. She can't control her power, so she devotes her life to avoiding contact with other people in her small Southern town. Her senior year of high school, she meets the one boy she can touch...but if she's going to be with him, Jenny must learn to use the "Jenny pox" inside her to survive his devious, manipulative girlfriend, who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.

Not recommended for readers under eighteen. (Totally agree!)

Liked it:
J.L. Bryan has excellent descriptions.  Very detailed and thorough, I could always see the picture he was building.  He sets the stage which aides you in falling in love with his characters who deserve your attention and hate the villains.  And boy did I hate her (them)!
Don't be fooled by the high school drama, this book really shows how adult life can be as well, in a paranormal way.  It fuses politics and power with a new look on paranormal abilities.
There is definitely some adult content in this book and graphic descriptions.  It is not a short read either.  Expect to spend some time with it, it's worth it though.  I'll be reading more in this series because I'm a sucker for the truth and this ending set my teeth on edge.
You can get it here for free

Thanks for the recommendation. I'd never heard of this book, and went straight to Amazon to buy it. I was really surprised when I saw it was free for Kindle. Can't wait to read it.

There have been a lot of books recently where the protag has a deadly touch. I've read three in the past two months.
