Hidden in the Shelves (20)

Hidden in the Shelves is a feature where I show off a discovery (or rediscovery) that I came across while shelving books for work.

Numbers by Rachel Ward

Ever since she was child, Jem has kept a secret: Whenever she meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. The two plan a trip to the city. But while waiting to ride the Eye ferris wheel, Jem is terrified to see that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today’s number. Today’s date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem’s world is about to explode!

Summary from Goodreads. The idea of being able to see when people are going to die was enough to catch my attention. Match that with the fact that Jem is going to be caught in middle of it all? That sounds even better! Errr… maybe not better but certainly more interesting.

Have you read Numbers? Is it any good?

  1. Definitely sounds interesting! Although honestly, I would have never picked this one up… mostly because books with eyes on the cover kind of freak me out. But maybe I could put a cover over the cover!
