Olivia is a teenager living with PSS/Psyche Sans Soma/A ghost hand, but she is not alone. Though it is rare, there are other people her age with this condition and it's not just limited to the hands. It could be a leg, a nose or someplace more private. People with this condition are looked down upon. Not surprising. It's seems to be a natural thing among humans, to hate and want to destroy anyone who is different. Olivia soon discovers that her ghost hand can do amazing things, like reach into your soul and pull things out of you. This kind of ability doesn't go unnoticed and a group of PSS haters are hot on her tails. With the help of a few friends, Olivia must defy all odds to keep those she loves alive and prevent herself from being captured.
I've been trying to come up with all sorts of fancy words to describe how much I loved and enjoyed reading this book but I find myself at a lost for words. There are twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. Secrets that you'll never see coming and a love that will turn you into a puddle of goo. I heart this book and cannot wait to read the second. Until then, it's going to be very difficult to get it out of my head. Even now I'm still lost in the pages. Thinking about the story. Wondering about what other events this author has in store. Ghost Hand was delicious and I ate it all up in one sitting.
