Shade Me by Jennifer Brown

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Published Date: 19 January 2016
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository

Nikki Kill does not see the world like everyone else. In her eyes, happiness is pink, sadness is a mixture of brown and green, and lies are gray. Thanks to a rare phenomenon called synesthesia, Nikki’s senses overlap, in a way that both comforts and overwhelms her.

Always an outsider, just one ‘D’ shy of flunking out, Nikki’s life is on the fast track to nowhere until the night a mysterious call lights her phone up bright orange—the color of emergencies. It’s the local hospital. They need Nikki to identify a Jane Doe who is barely hanging on to life after a horrible attack.

The victim is Peyton Hollis, a popular girl from Nikki’s school who Nikki hardly knows. One thing is clear: Someone wants Peyton dead. But why? And why was Nikki’s cell the only number in Peyton’s phone?

As she tries to decipher the strange kaleidoscope of clues, Nikki finds herself thrust into the dark, glittering world of the ultra-rich Hollis family, and drawn towards Peyton’s handsome, never-do-well older brother Dru. While Nikki’s colors seem to help her unravel the puzzle, what she can’t see is that she may be falling into a trap. The only truth she can be sure of is that death is a deep, pulsing crimson.

Shade Me is award-winning author Jennifer Brown’s first book in a thrilling suspense series about Nikki Kill.

  1. That is a great cover indeed -- and the woman reminds me of Jennifer lawrence in fact. I just read a book called Memory Man by David Baldacci where the main character, a cop had an eidectic memory and synesthesia -- he though had difficulty being emotional as well because of a host of consequences he suffered after going through a bad tackle on a football field.

    1. I'd be interested to know what other books you've read, Kay. I think it's fascinating too, but have only read one book that includes synesthesia so far. You know, I don't think I've actually read Jennifer Brown before though...I may have to change that! Thanks for stopping by. :-)
