The Killing Jar

From Goodread

"I try not to think about it, what I did to that boy." 
Seventeen-year-old Kenna Marsden has a secret. 
She's haunted by a violent tragedy she can't explain. Kenna's past has kept people-even her own mother-at a distance for years. Just when she finds a friend who loves her and life begins to improve, she's plunged into a new nightmare: her mom and twin sister are attacked, and the dark powers Kenna has struggled to suppress awaken with a vengeance. 
On the heels of the assault, Kenna is exiled to a nearby commune, known as Eclipse, to live with a relative she never knew she had. There, she discovers an extraordinary new way of life as she learns who she really is, and the wonders she's capable of. For the first time, she starts to feel like she belongs somewhere; that her terrible secret makes her beautiful and strong, not dangerous. But the longer she stays at Eclipse, the more she senses there is something menacing lurking underneath its idyllic veneer. And she begins to suspect that her new family may have sinister plans for her...

My Review

I gave this book 3 1/2 Stars

Publication Date: January 12, 2016
I received this book as an ARC from the Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Girouxublication for an honest review.

I thought the book was good but not great. That is why I gave it the 3 star rating. If I could of given it another half star it would of been 3 1/2 stars. I thought the book started out slow but the more I read the more I wanted to know about Kenna.

Kenna has to live her life knowing that she killed a boy when she was 10 yrs old. She has been hunted most of her life knowing what she did and never ever being able to tell anyone what she did. Her mother is the only one to know. Kenna knows that there is something wrong with her she just don't know what it is until her mother takes her to a place called Eclipse where she learns what she is and what she can do.
