Her entry begins:
Doll Bones by Holly Black

So spooky. This book totally creeped me out. The mystery at the core of this story is pitch-perfect. So well written. The reader plays this guessing game: Is it real? Is it not real? It's spectacular! There were a few moments in this book -- referencing the "blond one" -- when I literally got goose bumps. Just read it. Then you'll know what I'm talking about.

About Indigo, from the publisher:
A gift? A curse? A moment that changes everything....

Caught in an unexpected spring squall, Corrine's first instinct is to protect her little sister Sophie after a nasty fall. But when Corrine reaches out to comfort her sister, the exact opposite occurs. Her touch—charged with an otherworldly force and bursting with blinding indigo color—surges violently from Corrine to her sister. In an instant, Sophie is dead. From that moment on, Corrine convinces herself that everyone would be better off if she simply withdrew from life.

When her family abruptly moves to New Orleans, Corrine's withdrawal is made all the easier. No friends. No connections. No chance of hurting anyone. But strange things continue to happen around her in this haunting, mystical city. And she realizes that her power cannot be ignored, especially when Rennick, a talented local artist with a bad-boy past, suggests another possibility: Corrine might have the touch. An ability to heal those around her. But knowing what happened to her sister, can Corrine trust her gift?
