Day Eighteen - All About Haven + Giveaway (I'nt.)

Book Profile

 Name - Haven ( Goodreads )
Author - Kristi Cook ( Profile )
Release Date - 22nd Feb 2011
Genre - Paranormal
A chilling destiny she can’t escape.

A devastating love she can’t resist.

One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start--a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.

But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there--every student, every teacher--has psychic abilities, 'gifts and talents,' they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend--Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.

Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye--much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy--if only they can do so without destroying each other first.

Kristi's daughter is an artist
in making! Love this!
Name: Violet McKenna

Age: 16

Birthday: March 27

Extracurricular activities: Fencing team.

Best friend: Her roommate at Winterhaven, Cece Bradford, who can astrally project.

  6. Onge, this is my YA debut--you're probably confusing me with Kristie (with an 'ie') Cook!! It's really too bad our names are so similar--there's been a lot of confusion already!

  12. Looks like a good book! I def want to read it! I have to say though, I don't know how this YA fictional girls do it. Seeing the future sounds like an absolutely awful "gift" to have! That would totally stress me out. lol And having a boyfriend who keeps a ton of secrets? I'm pretty sure I'd just dump him. lol :P

  27. We already know that Aidan Gray becomes Violet's boyfriend, and that they'll spend the novel getting Violet to control and understand her powers, finding a cure for Aidan's deadly disease and fighting their "common enemy". Still, I can't wait to read this, because I've always wondered about psychic powers.
