Heartsick by Caitlin Sinead

Quinn is looking forward to her senior year at Poe University. She has big plans to hang out with her best friend, flirt with a certain boy genius, party at her favorite dive bar and figure out what she's going to do after graduation with her not-so-useful art major. But that's before she meets Luke, a hot townie who's moved back home to help take care of his dying sister. And it's before a weird epidemic sweeps across campus, mysteriously turning people's eyes purple.

Is it an odd side effect from a new party drug?

Is it a rogue virus developed in a campus lab?

Is it the mark of the devil?

Soon the town starts blaming the university and the student religious group becomes frighteningly aggressive in their on-campus accusations. Quinn and Luke are caught in the middle—until a tragic accident forces Luke to reveal the one part of himself he's kept carefully hidden. That he's so much more than the happy-go-lucky boy next door Quinn had believed him to be isn't a surprise…but this truth might be too dangerous for her to handle.



Hey! Here's my review.

This is the debut New Adult novel from Caitlin Sinead, expected to be published 15 February 2015. It is a fast paced, quick read, with an entertaining mix of mystery, romance and science fiction. I found the characters likeable and relatable. The plot was believable, something I could imagine happening. Issues such as drink driving, revenge, persecution of people who are different, fear of the unknown and forgiveness were incorporated, but didn't feel preachy. I was also inspired to find out more about ALS - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - a degenerative motor neurone disease.
