It takes only half a second…

 …Like those commercials where a crash test dummy rockets forward at high speed and slams into a wall.
…In that instant, every thought in Emma Lynn Walsh’s head collides with mine—every thought, memory, hope, disappointment and dream.
…I open my eyes to see Dr. Walsh peering at me, a puzzled expression on her face.

“Let—go—of—me,” I order though clenched teeth.

Mira wants to die. She’s attempted suicide twice already, and failed. Every time she comes in contact with another person, skin to skin, that person’s psyche uploads into hers. While her psychologist considers this a gift, for Mira, it’s a curse from which she cannot escape.

To make matters worse, Mira’s father is being investigated in the deaths of several volunteer test subjects of a miracle drug. Shortly after Mira’s mother starts asking questions, she ends up in a coma. Although her father claims it was an accident, thanks to her “condition” Mira knows the truth…but proving it just might get her killed!

Contact was a great book.The story starts with Mia trying to hurt herself,and I like how it doesn't take long to find out why,that it get's straight to the point not far into the book. I felt kinda bad for Mia with all that she is having to go through with no answers,the book is so well written that I found myself feeling Mia's emotions along with her.I enjoyed all the characters. The book has just the right amount of detailing and it was like watching a movie in my mind. Contact has everything that I look for when trying to choose a book,it has love,loss,(some)action, mystery and suspense. Once I started reading I didn't want to put it down and reading it was the first thing i'd what to do when I woke up in the morning. This is the first time I've read anything by this Author and I look forward to reading more books by Laurisa White Reyes.
