Description from the amazon:
Sasha Carrington has grown up feeling like an outsider, and her parents are too concerned with scaling the Lincoln, Connecticut, social ladder to even notice her. They'd be really horrified to know about the supernatural abilities Sasha and her friends Krystal and Jake possess. But as part of the Mystyx, Sasha has found her place.
Now her parents have suddenly taken an interest in everything she does, and their timing couldn't be worse. Sasha's father wants her to become BFFs with snooty Alyssa Turner, who hates Krystal for stealing her boyfriend. Then there's Antoine Watson, the boy Sasha has liked forever, the boy her parents would never approve of. But with the dark side getting more dangerous by the day, and the Mystyx's own powers growing in unexpected ways, Sasha is facing choices that could affect her friends, her love life—and even her destiny….
His shoes are leather, Italian probably. I keep looking at them because, of course, I'm a shoe-aholic.

Manifest - my review
Mayhem - coming August 11, 2011
The story of this group of teens continues to develop in this second book of the series. A bit more, just a bit, is revealed about them and their history.
A bit of romance with conflicts regarding race and class are touched upon as well.
I'm looking forward to book three, Mayhem, which will focus on the third member of the group who interests me the most, Jake.
fyi: you can get a copy of this at NetGalley or win one here...
