This is the first book in a YA series with some paranormal elements, or mostly just elements (hence the series name, “The Elementals”). Here's the description:
Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys– the ones she doesn't want. Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water–just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They're powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.
And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.
Secrets are hard to keep when your life's at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who's hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

I really enjoyed the action and the characters in this book – the heroine, Becca, is memorable, and terribly realistic as a teenager facing some crazy stuff in her life. I hope you will read the book and join us for the chat!
