"Hailey Tarbell is no typical girl. As one of the Banished who arrived from Ireland generations ago, Hailey has the power to heal—and, as she recently learned, to create zombies if she heals someone too late. But now, Hailey is finally getting a chance at a normal life. After realizing the good and bad sides of her power, Hailey has survived the unimaginable to settle with her aunt, Prairie, and her little brother, Chub, in the suburbs of Milwaukee. Finally Hailey has a loving family, nice clothes, and real friends. But her safe little world is blown apart when she tries to contact her secret boyfriend, Kaz—and alerts the incredibly dangerous man who's looking for her to her true whereabouts."
Plot: The story starts off pretty quick and progresses quickly through out from there, personally there wasn't any BIG surprises or climaxes for me.
Characters: I felt no connection to the characters, although I did like them.
Pros: quick paced story, easy read, mildly entertaining.
Cons: slightly predictable, wish the story was expanded upon, felt no connection to the characters.
Final Thoughts:  Overall, the book wasn't bad, it just wasn't my type of book. I read quickly through it, but I almost felt I was reading the same story as the first book... Although, I could be wrong since I did not read the 1st book, just from what is mentioned of the 1st story in this book, it seems the same. I can see wear some people may love this book and there is truly nothing HORRIBLE about it, just was not my cup of tea.
