GENRE: YA Dystopian
Cara and Seth are best friends and aspiring neuroscientists - now their friendship becomes something more.
When I don't say anything for a few moments Seth says, "I noticed as I was looking at your family's brain scans that all of you are highly compassionate people and I thought you might like to have proof of their compassion with you always." Nervously he takes hold of my hand. "Do you like it Cara?"
It's one of the most thoughtful gifts anyone has ever given me. Seth knows me.
I look up at him and his face is abstract through my tears, but I lean towards him anyway and press my lips to his. I can feel his surprise, and he pulls back for an instant and then his lips are on mine again. I've never kissed anyone before and it's strange at first and then our mouths open slightly and I can taste him. His mouth is warm and it's nice. So nice.
