Thirteen Days to Midnight

Jacob has finally found a foster parent he truly cares about when he is killed in a horrible car crash. Right before he dies, Mr. Fielding whispers his last words to Jacob, "You are indestructible." A week later, Jacob writes these same words on the arm cast of a new friend, Ophelia. Soon after, she survives a horrible skateboarding crash without a scratch.

Soon, Jacob and his friends begin to realize there is much more to those three words, a superpower that can be passed from Jacob to others to keep them safe and alive. After discovering this, Jacob, Ophelia (Oh), and Milo (his best friend) begin to fulfill their superhero fantasies. They soon realize they could actually be superheroes, saving others with this power. But how do they decide who to save? What happens when they realize they can't keep death waiting forever.

This suspenseful and scary book full of twists and turns will keep readers on the edge of their seats and biting their nails at the same time. The moral debate that this book raises about who deserves to live over others alone makes it a great read. Highly recommended to those who like fantasy and horror books, Thirteen Days To Midnight by Patrick Carman.
