The assignment Coach gives the new partners is to find out as much information as they can about their new lab partners - and yes he will check for authenticity. Nora introduces herself and waits for him to begin asking her questions. Patch however isn't a "follow the rules" kinda guy and decides to just write down all the information he knows about her. When Nora asks what he's doing he starts listing all the details about her, and all the information he's sharing is spot on. But how does he know all about her when they just met?
That's not the only thing troubling Nora. She can't stop thinking about him, and now it seems like where ever she turns Patch is right there. Half of her screams to stay away from him but the other half can't seem to stay away. Odd and scary things start to happen to Nora after becoming Patch's lab partner. One night while trying to fall asleep she is awoken by a strange sound and when she looks into her window she see a face looking back in, and her bedroom is on the second floor. She can't shake the feeling that she's being followed and watched, and it doesn't help that every time she turns around she sees a dark figure quickly disappearing. These strange occurrences are some how connected to Patch and she's having a hard time deciding if Patch is safe or dangerous.
I liked this book a lot, well generally I like all the books I read. When you first start reading this book you get a sense that Patch is dangerous but more of a 'bad boy' dangerous and you can understand why Nora is attracted and repulsed by him at the same time. He keeps telling her he has a dark past and again we along with Nora assume he was a teenage delinquent and now he's trying to reform. As the book continues more characters are added into the pot and we see how Patch/Nora react to them. Vee is the catalyst causing all the drama and friction between Nora and the new guy Elliot. I loved the foreshadows and twists and turns that were put into this story to make it fun and interesting to read.
