Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson
Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.
Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison’s condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can’t explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori—the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that’s impossible. Right?
Synopsis by Goodreads.
Ultraviolet is a rare gem. It is the best of rare gems: the ones that peek at you from under useless items and artifacts, and the ones that are buried deep in the earth hidden from human sight.
When I first picked up Ultraviolet, I did so nonchalantly. The cover wasn't spectacular and the synopsis left much to be desired. It pricked my interest, but I had no idea what I was walking into with this book. Ultraviolet was absolutely delightful!
