This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Jenny was born with a curse—-she infects anyone she touches with a lethal supernatural plague. She’s spent her life avoiding contact with everyone, and now she expects to graduate high school and retreat into a lonely, quiet life in her father’s ramshackle house on the edge of town.
Her life is about to change. As she finds her first love, she also discovers she is not the only person in her small town with a supernatural touch, and her new enemy is a popular girl with a more sinister power than Jenny’s.
Jenny doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but the horror within her has urges of its own...it wants to infect, to bring suffering, and to kill, and Jenny may be helpless to stop it.
I'm Totally Infected with Jenny Pox
I'm totally infected with Jenny Pox. I began this book by reading the first chapter as an excerpt at the end of another book. I was so totally enamored of the lead character, Jenny, that I immediately purchased a copy to continue the story. That's talent right there - grabbing my full attention so easily. I probably would have read the entire book in one sitting if I hadn't needed to work.
Poor Jenny is plagued - in more ways than one. She suffers extreme loneliness and isolation due to the fact her slightest touch can spread a deadly disease. Her character is brilliantly portrayed. You suffer right along with her. You feel her joys, her heartaches, her struggles. Others in the book are equally believable and intriguing. You love some, you hate some, and you pity others. You know who should be held accountable. You know others really shouldn't, should they? Very twisty with my emotions there, Mr. Bryan.
The plot of Jenny's plague-ridden touch is a unique one. With such a fresh storyline you'd expect to be surprised or caught off guard now and then. No disappointment here. The plot turns unexpectedly toward the end of the book. Then another surprise. Then yet again - surprise! I love that. Catch me off guard once - good for you. Catch me off guard twice - good for me. Catch me off guard a third time - now I'm completely infected.
This book was not what I expected. It seems like a mixture of the movies "cruel intentions" & "carrie" but somewhat unfocused. It felt like this book was trying to b controversial but didn't stick with one topic - drugs, sex, homophobia, racism - they just seemed unnecessary and really didn't add to the book. The ending was weird, it seemed an afterthought rather than something planned bcuz it just left u hanging. Lastly it was annoying that people saw what Jenny and Seth could do multiple times and had it on record but nothing ever happened, I would've expected them to have ended up as lab rats especially since it was a small town but they didn't. Otherwise it would've been an interesting book.
Best Book You'll Ever Read!!'
