What would you do if, just by looking into someone’s eyes, you could see the date they will die? Would you try to save them? Try to cheat death? But what if your attempt to save their life is what causes their demise? Kidzworld reviews Num8ers by Rachel Ward.


Death Dates

Jem has a secret—she can see people’s numbers. When she looks into someone’s eyes—a stranger, a friend, a relative—she can see the day they’ll die. It’s a curse, one that keeps her lonely and afraid to get close to someone, one that she refuses to share with anyone…until now.


Spider

After her mother died of an overdose, Jem has been passed from one foster family to another. She had no friends…until she met Spider. Spider is a troubled teen with a good heart, trying to earn money by dealing drugs. He and Jem form an instant friendship. There’s only one problem: Spider’s death date is only weeks away.


Wanted

One day while hanging out at the London Eye, Jem notices a pattern. Everyone around them has the same death date—today! Something terrible is about to happen. She and Spider run for their lives, and not a moment too soon. But they’re not safe yet. They were seen fleeing from the scene and now the police are after them. With a bundle of drug money and a stolen car, Jem and Spider run from the law. But with their faces plastered on newspapers, how far can they run before they’re caught.


The Bottom Line

Num8ers is an amazing adrenaline ride. Its unique concept will keep you hanging on to every word. If you’re looking for a solid teen book that is both deep and exciting, definitely check out Num8ers by Rachel Ward.
