Review: Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Published Date: January 2013
Publisher: EdmontUSA
Genre: YA

The Story: There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away. That’s why they make the perfect assassins.
The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.

Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her.
Nix is a killer.  Claire is his target. But from the moment he sets eyes on her, everything changes, because only the two of them can truly see each other – and two Nobodies are more than twice as dangerous as one.

My Review:  LOVED every minute of this book.  Jennifer Lynn Barnes pulled me in from the first chapter.  It had me remembering times in my own life that I felt like a Nobody.  And the emotions that she brought to the characters, I was feeling much the same as them.  This is such an awesome story about trust, love, and humankind.  There are so many similarities with the "real world" to this world that Jennifer created, it broke my heart.  Jennifer uses such descriptive words, that you are able to imagine and see what she saw as she was writing it.
