Contact Blog Tour by Laurisa White Reyes review and giveaway ~Kami



When 16-year-old Mira touches another person she know everything they know, every thought they've ever had, every memory. Because of this curse, Mira has attempted suicide twice. Her father works for a company that created a miracle drug that ends mental illness, but killed volunteer test subjects. This is a really well written story with an intriguing plot. The pacing is really good and I really liked Mira. The story drew me in and held my interest. There is a sweet love interest named David which changes this story from paranormal to romantic. But of course, Mira can't touch him. Her abilities are a lot like the X-men, Rogue's in that respect. Mira's mother seems to know something about the mystery surrounding Mira's father and she seems to be attacked for her knowledge. This story then becomes a thriller/suspense as Mira tries to uncover the truth. 5 stars

Blurb:It takes only half a second…
 Like those commercials where a crash test dummy rockets forward at high speed and slams into a wall.
In that instant, every thought in Emma Lynn Walsh’s head collides with mine—every thought, memory, hope, disappointment and dream.
I open my eyes to see Dr. Walsh peering at me, a puzzled expression on her face.
Let—go—of—me,” I order though clenched teeth.
Mira wants to die. She’s attempted suicide twice already, and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that person’s psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira, it’s a curse from which she cannot escape.
To make matters worse, Mira’s father is being investigated in the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of a miracle drug. Shortly after Mira’s mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her “condition” Mira knows the truth…but proving it just might get her killed!
