[A Wattpad featured novel] Melissa has a rare, undiagnosed disease, or so say the doctors that did tests on her for half of her life. She doesn't need a medical certificate to tell her that she's different. She was born with a body temperature so low that most people would die before they even started living. Keyword: most. 

Somehow, Melissa has managed to live for fifteen years, but those years have not been without their hardships. The doctors told her that in order for her organs to function in such cold conditions, her body must absorb the heat from the surrounding air in a painful process dubbed a "heat attack", which slowly turns her temporary home freezing and uninhabitable. 

Forced to move from city to city in order to keep everyone in her vicinity alive, and plagued by the stares and hushed whispers that accompany her, Melissa tries to lead a normal life. But she's failing miserably. And when she's approached by the new kid in school, all hope of an ordinary life slips from her grasp.

Suddenly, strange is the new normal, and Melissa finds herself wrapped up in a new world where ghosts aren't "just in her head", glass windows shatter unprovoked, and rare, undiagnosed diseases aren't actually diseases at all. And to top it all off, someone - or multiple someones - seem to want her dead. 

So much for normal...

                              Maybe you could just stay outside...
I love this - I cringed at the melting skin bit but I already love this book so much I don't care if I cringe - as long as I can keep reading this book
I’ve never been, it be cool to see Australia thou! Not just from pictures.
So you lost your sense of touch???? That’s cool but not cool....
You must be joking, it's amazing so far! Already I'm inclined to like the main character, and it's been a chapter. I like how you characterize her.
That's so sad. 😞 It's terrible to think you're pointless, I wish I could hug her.
