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. 
You may have recently seen my review of Touch by Jus Accardo, but in case you haven't: go check it out! I want to send a big thank you to Entangled Publishing for including me in the Entangled Blog Tour for Touch and Jus Accardo for writing an amazing character! 

Hi Kale! I have to say, out of the fictional characters out there you'd
have to be one of the top ones I'd love to interview! So, thank you! It's a

pleasure to have you on my blog!

Me? Really? Thank you. *Kale smiles, but takes a step back* Just please
don't get too close. You seem like a nice person. I don't want to kill

Definitely my first question, hands down, has to be: What have become some

of your favourite things about the world outside since you've left Denazen? Besides, the freedom that is!

I like soda. And beer, too. But my favorite thing is touching Dez. Kissing
her, too. Yes. That's definitely at the top of the list...

How did you feel about Deznee when you first met her?

I was conflicted. She was strange... Out in the woods in the middle of the
night. Alone. But there was something about her... I got this funny tickle

in my stomach when I saw her. She says I was crushing hard on her from the
moment I laid eyes on her. I'm not sure what that means, but she's
probably right...

If you could describe Deznee with only one word, what word would that be?


I know I keep asking about Deznee, but I'm curious! Let's pretend you're

not running away and constantly living in fear of the bad guys and you want
to take Deznee on a nice and normal date. Where would you take her and what
would you do?

I'm not sure how to answer this... I suppose I would take her dancing.
That's what Fred would do...

If you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?

Three wishes? Do you know a Six that could do that? If so, I would like an
hour alone with Cross, I would wish to see Dez happy and safe for the rest

of her life, and I would ask to be the one personally responsible for
destroying Denazen.

What are your hopes for the future?

I want to live my life with Dez in peace and freedom.
