Title: The Blessed by Tonya Hurley
Published by: Simon & Schuster
Release date: September 25th, 2012
Brooklyn teens Lucy, Cecelia and Agnes find themselves in the emergency room at Perpetual Help Hospital at the lowest point in their lives. Lucy, the superficial party girl; Cecelia, a drop out rock chick; and Agnes, a hopeless romantic. All rebels running from their lives and themselves, plagued by broken hearts and broken dreams. Enter Sebastian. Mysterious, compelling, seductive. He seems to bring each of them what they long for...
But in the battle for his heart, will they lose their souls?
Why I want to read it: This book sounds mysterious, and Sebastian seems like a really bad boy. I bet there is more to it than that. I have to confess that what I find the cover fascinating. The girl is crying, with swollen eyes that look both beautiful and haunted at the same time. There is a rosary hanging from her neck and a chain on her shoulder. The title looks like a burst of light… I just love it!
