Review: When Jem looks into a person's eyes, she sees the date of their impending death. A product of the foster care system since her mother overdosed, Jem has many reasons to stay aloof, skip school, and keep a low profile. When Jem has reason to flee the scene of a massive terrorist attack (her "gift" of seeing death dates), she and her only friend Spider find themselves fugitives. Action-filled, this is a bittersweet tearjerker.
