Evermore, vol. 1 of The Immortals, by Alyson Noel (NY: St. Martin's Griffin, 2009).

Evermore introduces sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom, an intriguing heroine who has recently lost her family in a terrible car accident. She is now living in California with her aunt and struggling with psychic powers that developed after her accident. She can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, intuit their lives with a simple touch. The noise is almost unbearable for Ever, who tries to block it out by hiding beneath a hooded sweatshirt with her iPod ear buds firmly in place and blasting. The highlight of her days: frequent visits from her dead little sister. While she was popular at her old school in Washington, she purposely seeks the outcasts in her new one. She knows that most of her classmates consider her a loser freak--she can hear what they're thinking after all--, but then a new boy transfers in and Ever's world shifts again. She can't read his thoughts and when he's around, the noise stops. Not only is Damen Auguste gorgeous by everyone's standards, but he seems drawn to Ever. She tries to resist, but .....

Super new paranormal romance series for fans of Twilight.
