Publisher's Summary

In this spellbinding thriller and YA debut from best-selling author Marti Leimbach, Kira Adams has discovered a cure for death - and it may just cost her life.

Things aren’t going well for Kira. At home, she cares for her mother and fends off debt collectors. At school, she’s awkward and shy. Plus, she may flunk out if she doesn’t stop obsessing about science, her passion and the one thing she’s good at...very good at.

When she wins a prestigious science contest, she draws the attention of the celebrated Professor Dr. Gregory Munn (as well as his handsome assistant), leading to a part-time job in a top-secret laboratory.

The job is mostly cleaning floors and equipment, but one night, while running her own experiment, she revives a lab rat that has died in her care.

One minute it is dead, the next it is not.

Suddenly she’s the remarkable wunderkind, the girl who can bring back the dead. Everything is going her way. But it turns out that science can be a dangerous business, and Kira is swept up into a world of international rivalry with dark forces that threaten her life.

Spellbinding

Kira is a girl with grit & gumption. She lets her peers define her only to a point. Then she's gotten beyond them in ways they can never hope to understand. There is never any shortage of problems in her life, the kind of problems that are all-too-easy to understand. Some of her solutions leave me with my mouth hanging open. None is straightforward. Be not alarmed, though, that there is any corrupting tendency in this story, for even as Kira's doing something for which she could be hauled off to jail, she's maintaining a high standard of ethics and would make any parent incredibly proud of her.

As I listened to this work with its finely-drawn characters, I called to mind romances, friendships, & fond memories from my own life. Sometimes it had me laughing, but more often it had me crying. There is never a dull moment from start to finish.

I thought DG would end with a cliffhanger since I'd seen that there was to be a sequel, but actually it's more like a nice wide ledge on a mountain top. I'm looking very much forward to reading the sequel but can hobble along very well meantime.
