About the book
Since her mother’s death when she was seven, 15-year-old Jem has kept a secret.
When her eyes meet someone else’s, a number comes into her head – the date on which they will die.
Knowing that nothing can last for ever, Jem avoids relationships, until she meets Spider, another outsider, and her life takes a happier turn.
But on their first day out together, waiting in the queue for a ride on the London Eye, Jem realises something terrible is about to happen and her world is about to explode.
“Even the idea of this book gave me chills! ... Creepy and original!”
“Numbers is a high-concept, it-could-go-anywhere idea taken down an unexpected and interesting route ... it is both intelligent and life-affirming. First-time author Rachel Ward is certainly one to watch...”
PHILIP ARDAGH, THE GUARDIAN
