Move over Twilight; Touch is here.

Touch, by debut author Jus Accardo, is hailed by readers as the "best YA book of 2011". Packed with memorable characters, heart pounding action, sizzling romance, and raw emotion, it will stick with readers long after the last page is read.

Oct. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- “Touch  by Jus Acardo is by far one of the best YA books I've ever read and may be the very best "dark" YA,”  says author Patricia Eimer.  

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except there's something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she'll turn to dust if he touches her. It's not until Dez's father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there's more to this boy--and her father's "law firm"--than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation--an organization devoted to collecting "special" kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons--his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they're caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

Praise for Touch:

★★★★½ stars, RT Top Pick. "Accardo's debut, first in the Denazen series, is infused with pulse-pounding action, attitude, charm, romance, suspense and enough witty dialogue to crown it one of the best YA novels of the year."
~Diane Morasco, RT Book Reviews

"Memorable characters, heart pounding action, and sizzling hot romance - Touch  has it all!"
~Jennifer L. Armentrout, Author of Half-Blood

"Raw and emotional; just like it's heroine, Touch  packs a mean right hook. Jus Accardo's action-packed debut is sure to win her a legion of fans." ~Inara Scott, award-winning author of The Candidates and The Marked --book cover

“This is one of those books that you'll not put down. And when you're done, you'll need more. I'm now a Touch superfan. Just saying. If you haven't bought this book, you're so missing out. And if and when it makes it to the big screen, I'll be able to say, "See, told you it was that good."

“...start to finish Touch was one of the finest pieces of young adult genre literature that I’ve had the honor of reading.”

“It. Blew. Me. Away.”

"I'm seriously blown away over the way people are responding to Touch, says Jus from her home on the east coast.  The Denazon novel has sold translation rights to France in a three book deal, and Jus is also contracted for two additional novellas with Entangled Publishing.
