Excerpt from Empath by Becca J. Campbell

Last week was busy around here! I released June & Justin (previously excerpted here), and also announced that one of my other books has been nominated for an award: Tattooed Teardrops has been nominated for the In the Margins Best Books for Teens award!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

I picked up Empath by Becca J. Campbell after reading someone else’s Teaser Tuesday last week. (There are a lot of Empath books, so make sure you get the right one.)  I figured by the cover, and in particular the beautiful font, that it might include a fairyland, and took a look. The description made it clear that it was not a fairytale, but intrigued me nonetheless. It is set in the “real world,” but involves a number of kids with varying paranormal “disabilities”.

He’d opened up to her, let his guard down for a split-second, only to take it all back after the fact. Why? What was he hiding?

Supernatural empathy isn’t a gift, it’s a curse. Anywhere she goes, Jade’s emotions are replaced by those of the people around her.

Jade grew up in a suburb of Colorado Springs, protected from other people by her parents. Now she faces college—and the world—with nothing to shield her from unwanted feelings.

When Cam, a classmate with a major crush on her, unintentionally hijacks her emotions, Jade struggles to keep from being carried away in feelings of attraction. When Ethan, a psychopath with a thirst for fear, fixates on her, the emotional impact could be lethal.

Caught in a deadly trap, Jade must untangle the emotions and find a way to use her empathic curse to overcome this killer or be overcome by him.
