Bloomsbury Publishing, 2012. ISBN 9781408825808.
(Ages: 12+) Highly recommended. West is unable to move after a bike accident that puts him in hospital. While there he meets Olivia, she's the girl in the ward next door. She is beautiful, mysterious and the girl of his dreams. For his recovery she has done more than anyone else. But she might not even be alive.
Olivia and West become friends and most nights she sneaks in to West's room to talk to him. She is the only person that knows what he is thinking about even though he has never spoken a single word to her. When West starts having nightmares he is certain that she is connected to them, but he just doesn't know how.
Blink Once is an Amazing book. Written from a teenage boy's point of view, it has both love and loss, and some supernatural elements. I would highly recommend this book as it is just so amazing. It is original and will hold your attention till the very end.
