If 15-year-old Jem looks into people’s eyes, she sees their numbers—numbers that foretell that person’s death date. Naturally, she avoids eye contact and, as a result, is considered shifty and weird. She makes no friends until Spider, a tall, skinny black classmate forces the issue. Reluctantly, Jem lowers her defenses, letting Spider into her life. To her horror, she discovers that his time in this life is nearly at an end. As one mishap after another plagues Jem and Spider, forcing them to go on the run, their relationship deepens. Sarah Coomes portrays young people especially well. Her youthful voice is energetic, and her characterizations are truthful. Rachel Ward spins an engrossing yarn, and Sarah Coomes gives it a fine reading. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
