Jenny Pox - #AtoZChallenge

The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do. 

- Thomas Jefferson


Jenny Pox  
The Paranormals #1
Paranormal / fantasy / horror

Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague, the "Jenny pox." She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town.

Then she meets the one boy she can touch. Jenny feels herself falling for Seth...but if she's going to be with him, Jenny must learn to use the deadly pox inside her to confront his ruthless and manipulative girlfriend Ashleigh, who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.



“Let’s try it,” he said. 
“This is serious,” she said. “You could get hurt. Or die.” 
“But if we can touch, that means we can make out, right?” he asked. 
“You want me to risk my life for maybe?” He grinned.


  1. Although I don't normally read fantasy, this book appeals to me.

  2. Interesting thought. Your excerpt got my attention. I may have to look this book up. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Love that quote! Another favorite of mine that's similar - “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”
    ― Dr. Seuss
    Interesting excerpt too!
