Num8ers(Numbers #1) by Rachel Ward
I literally cannot tell you how many times I burst into tears while reading this. Not something you would expect, right?
Jem and Spider were pretty good characters, and I really enjoyed reading about them. Their relationship was really awesome, because it completely made sense to me in my demented mind. I was completely hooked on this book after the first chapter. I could not put it down. What I really loved about this book though, was the whole "on-the-run" aspect of it all. I really dig that kind of stuff. I mean, who doesn't love a good story about running from the law? Something else I liked was the way that the author didn't try to gloss over any events or anything that was said. She didn't try to make it 'kid-friendly' it was real, and I totally respect that. Also, the way that Jem could see the Numbers was just amazing. She made it a huge part of the book, and you really had to see what happened. You just had to know. Great plot. I never saw it coming. I was just hoping in the end it would turn out different.
"It's not all random. It can't be." I took a deep breath. "Because I was meant to meet you, and you were meant to meet me."
