Alyzon Whitestarr isn't at all musically or artistically gifted like her parents and siblings. In fact, she finds herself rather plain and overall boring. Then, she has an accident that leaves her unconscious for a month. Suddenly, her senses are extremely sharpened and she can smell people's feelings. Everyone smells pretty good except for her extremely handsome crush, Harlen. He smells rancid. Alyzon and her newfound friends, Gilly, Raoul, Sarry, and Harrison sense something wrong about not only Harlen, but also Alyzon's sister Serenity and Aaron Rayc, a strange man that seems to be mixed up in multiple odd happenings. Thats just the beginning.


Overall, I was not impressed with this book. The entire conspiracy involving Harlen, Alyzons sister Serenity, and Aaron Rayc seemed to not be very well though out. There were a few interesting bits, such as Alyzons ongoing romance with Harrison, but as a whole, the book was a little boring. Its good enough to finish the five hundred-page book, but not good enough to reread it. It seemed as if every chapter or so, the characters would talk about how to behave morally, which rather annoyed me. This is not a masterpiece but it does have a few bits that make it worthwhile to keep reading to the end.
