Blog Tour: Everything You Know by Mary Beth Bass

Everything You Know
Release Date: 09/27/13

Summary from Goodreads:
A dark forest, a screaming woman and blood. These are the images that haunt seventeen year old Emma from the moment she meets Joe Castlellaw. And so much more awaits.

Emma Mathews never believed she was like everyone else, but neither did she think herself crazy. Meeting Joe Castlellaw, Henry Dearborn High’s newest student, was like waking on a cold rock in a strange place, the world bathed in liquid moonlight. Everything is different now…and fraught. Visions of a dark forest, a screaming woman and blood have begun to haunt Emma’s dreams, and not only at night. But Joe’s lonely beauty makes her float on air, and she would follow him anywhere—out of high school and through the great tree, to a world of poetry and political savagery, of magic and murder, to a life that is entirely theirs and yet unlike anything they have ever known.

My Review:
"Strange things are happening to Emma. She's having nightmares along with sweating in the middle of winter for no reason at all. One day at school, she meets a mysterious boy named Joe, who also may be experiencing things that aren't normal. Their connection is undeniable.

The day Emma meets Joe, she has a vision of sorts in front of him. Resulting in Joe getting mad at Emma because it turns out that Emma just described in vivid detail his mother's paintings of dark fairy tales.

Emma and Joe's story is complex yet sort of beautiful. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding them and I realllly enjoyed the soulmate aspect of the book as well.
Throughout the story you will be questioning what everyone is. It had a bit of a fantasy type feel to it.

The story itself was magical. I want to say more but I would rather you read for yourself and discover the beauty of it yourself.

3.75 stars"
