Reckless Magic by Rachel Higginson

Book Description:

16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and she is determined to simply do that. But when she meets Kiran Kendrick and her world opens to something she thought only existed in fairy tales, she's unsure what her future will hold. Suddenly she is captivated by a boy who seems to be the source of all of her problems and struggling to rescue her best friend from a foreign prison. When attempts are made on Kiran's life, Eden alone must save him. Thrust into a world that is more make-believe than reality, Eden has to find her own destiny without losing those she loves most. Reckless is an intricate story of mystery, adventure, magic and love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine set on a path to save the world and her loved ones before its too late.

Christina's BookReview
"I understood the purpose of the Resistance, but the battle I chose to fight would be the one that brought me closer to the man I loved with every fiber of my being."

Eden Matthews knows that she's going crazy. She has to be. There is no one else in the world that can set fire to a school, flood another and magically produce huge tropical bees. Little does she know that she isn't going crazy. She's about to find out that she's different but not in the way she thinks.When she is given a final chance to finish school she goes in without any hope. And when she meets Kiran Kendrick the unexplainable happens. Her "electricity" magnifies.

Kiran is one gorgeous, irritating, arrogant jerk. He brings out the worse in Eden with his snarky comments and smirks. But Eden can't get him to leave her alone. There is something about him that makes the "electricity" she has in her ignite.But Kiran, Eden is about to find out, is much more then she bargained for.

After a camping trip goes terribly wrong, Eden must come to terms with what she is.After realizing and being told what the "electricity" really is Eden suddenly accepts it quickly. But things turn even more crazy when she learns just who Kiran is and the rules of the world she now is part of.

Eden is destined for much more then she wants. She is thrust into the new world around her and has a hard time accepting. When she has to fight for much more then herself she quickly learns that being who she is is not easy. And being in love with someone who is forbidden is not what she expected. Being star-crossed sucks.
