Marlena Oliveira has been given an extraordinary gift. She has been given the power to heal. She can cure paralysis, mental illness, even a broken heart. People with all kinds of ailments come from around the world seeking audiences with her, believing her to be a saint. But her power comes at a price. Marlena can't have friends or go to school. She can't date. She can't even touch anyone. The older she gets, the more trapped she feels. Then Marlena meets Finn, a boy who makes her want to be the kind of girl who could fall in love. For the first itme, she begins to doubt her abilities--and herself. Is her gift real? And even if it is, is it worth sacrificing her chance at a happy life? And who would--or could--she be without it? All Marlena wants is to experience what it is to be normal. To swim in a bathing suit. To eat lunch at the diner in town. To be kissed. But if she gives up her gift, will she ever be able to get it back?
