UK Book: Numbers by Rachel Ward

From Amazon: Since her mother's death, fifteen-year-old Jem has kept a secret. When her eyes meet someone else's, a number pops into her head - the date on which they will die. Knowing that nothing lasts forever, Jem avoids relationships, but when she meets a boy called Spider, and they plan a day out together, Jem foresees a chain of events that will shatter their lives forever.

Numbers is a brilliant, fast-paced edgy thriller from UK publisher Chicken House. It has an original concept and realistic characters, along with one of the nicest book covers I've ever seen. I'd highly recommend it to fans of Kevin Brooks, who is one of the masters of gritty YA fiction. Also, look for a sequel sometime next year!
