She doesn't see dead people. She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally. 

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.

So, the story begins with Kaylee and her best friend Emma going out (sneaking in) in a club with Emma's sister help. They both seems to have fun. Then Kaylee goes to the bar to have a drink. And then she hears his voice. Nash. Heart jumping she turns around, and there he is talking to her. The most popular guy in school is talking to her. Amazing. They go dancing together and everything is great. 

Until it hits her. She can't speak. She wants to scream. Laud. 

And here the real story begins. She starts to spend time with Nash and he seems to understand her more than she does. Kaylee thinks she is crazy or going crazy. This episodes start to happen every day. Girls are dying and she can't stop it from happening. She tries to talk to her aunt, but it seems no one believes her. She starts to doubt in her self and her sanity.

And then, there is Nash. Nash believes her. And he decides to tell her everything. About her screams, about her abilities. About what she really is. He stands by her side.

My soul to take is such a compelling read. Once you start it, you won't be able to put it down. Kaylee is a great narrator of the story. And Nash is the very key for understanding the story. The mystery is also good and keeps you guessing till the end. In overall I've really enjoyed this book!

PS. Nash is so hot. But I think Tod is really hot, too.

You can't see me, but I'm dancing right now. LOL! x) I totally agree, Nea! This book has that unputdownable factor about it that hooks you in so you don't want to stop! I adoooored Kaylee, and the whole bean sidhe thing was definitely original!

Awesome review, Nea! I'm really, REALLY happy that you loved this book like I did! :) <3 And if you think the Hudson brothers (emphasis on Tod) are hot now, wait until you get to know them in later books -- you'll fall in love! ;)
