Mira wants to die. She’s attempted suicide twice already and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that person’s psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira it’s a curse from which she cannot escape.

To make matters worse, Mira’s father is being investigated for the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of the miracle drug Gaudium. Shortly after Mira’s mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her “condition” Mira knows the truth, but proving it just might get her killed.

It took me a bit to really get into this storyline. For the first part it was dragging very slowly, then gradually increased to nail biting by the end of the book. The story sort of just comes to a open ending, leaving room for more development or not. I’m not exactly sure about why, but it did leave me wanting more of a solid ending. This book is told from Mira’s point of view, so we got to travel through her self discovery first hand. For me I think it would be a rock solid 5 stars if the plot was expanded and detailed a touch more. There was plenty of details of Mira’s ability and her thoughts/feelings, but there was not much growth or details on the other characters. Except for perhaps Jordan. There are plenty of twists that I personally did not see coming, and was shocked to read. There are some disturbing parts as well. I am not sure if the teen market is the proper category, maybe that’s just me. I did like how David’s character was written in and merged with Mira’s. At times it was a little Bella/Edward. Overall Contact was a thrilling read that i enjoyed and would recommend.
