Are Alyzon's new abilities a blessing . . . or a curse? Alyzon Whitestarr doesn't take after her musically talented father or her nocturnal, artistic mother. In fact, she's the most normal member of a very eccentric family . . . until the day that an accident leaves her more unique than she ever could have dreamed. Suddenly colors are more vibrant to Alyzon; her memory is flawless; but strangest of all is Alyzon's sense of smell. Her best friend smells of a comforting sea breeze. She registers her father's contentment as the sweet scent of caramelized sugar. But why does the cutest guy in school smell so rancid? With Alyzon's extrasensory perception comes intrigue and danger, as she becomes aware of the dark secrets and hidden ambitions that threaten her family. In the end, being different might be less of a blessing than a curse. . . .

The beginning was sloooooooow but it got really good in the middle and end. I didn't really like the explaining of the "wrongness" they didn't explain it in a way that really made sense. it was one of those things that the author probably had a clear idea of it but it just didn't transfer into words the right way.

The beginning of this book was pretty boring, and I almost stopped reading it, but I'm glad I didn't because it got MUCH better! It started out kind of interesting, explaining Alyzon's "extended senses," but ended up getting really deep into how "wrongness" affects people, and how it's a disease. Overall, even though the beginning was very slow, I really enjoyed this book and the underlying message it gives. I would have given this book a better rating if the beginning was not so slow that I practically had to force myself to read it, but the last few hundred pages were extremely good and I plowed right through them!
