"It was just a dream. As long as you enter the water I will be there. I won't let anything happen to you."
"I'll wipe your tears and east your pain"
"I know everyone's different, but you can tell she's special just by looking at her. It's like there's something pure, untainted by the ugly around her. She's beautiful."
"Oh, and I think you're...what's the word you used... gorgeous!"
"But when I saw you in the office for the first time, every dream that I had ever dreamed flashed before my mind's eye. The only difference was that she now had a face in every single one of them. It was you."
"You know, I'm willing to wait for you. It's obvious you have strong feelings for...Sebastian, but he's wrong for you. He doesn't deserve someone so beautiful. You're much to good for him."
"You don't think it hurts being around the one person that I have dreamed about my entire life, and not be able to-to embrace her and stand by her side every waking moment?"
"I think that you're afraid of letting Sebastian go, because you know that you'll be happy with me, and being happy with me means that you'll forget about him."
When sixteen year-old Bijou Fitzroy and her nomadic grandmother leave New York City to live in a home in the sleepy town of Sykesville, Maryland, Bijou thinks she will finally be able to live a normal life and be like everyone else. This move will be permanent, and Bijou cannot be anymore thrilled. After years of being shut away by her grandmother, Bijou will finally able to interact with peers, make friends, go to school, and live like a normal teenager.
Moving around and being homeschooled definitely made it difficult to make friends, but there are other reasons for Bijou’s solitude. With eyes that constantly change from gray to green to a honey-coated shade of brown and an ability to feel exactly what other people are feeling, the concept of obtaining closeness is more of a fable than a reality. Although her eyes are beautiful, their constant shift in color instills a sense of fear within other people and causes them to look away. Bijou’s premonitions, blackouts, and semi-prophetic dreams of a faceless boy don’t help her social musings either. Regardless, she decides to attend the local high school.
Bijou is immediately introduced to Sebastian Sinjin, a quirky and unusually beautiful boy who doesn’t seem to belong in a high school in nowhere Maryland. Sebastian is also special. Instead of looking away from Bijou, he makes direct eye contact with her. And when he shakes Bijou’s hand something dark and familiar to awaken within her as an electric shock surges through her body. Bijou soon finds herself deeply attracted to Sebastian, who remains aloof and often acts like Bijou doesn’t exist.
Despite the pains of having her first real crush, Bijou makes friends quickly and excels in all of her classes…well, all except for Mythology with Mr. Jennings. Mr. Jennings’ class starts off great with endless discussions of djinn and how they conceal themselves from the human eye, but things soon take a turn for the worse when the stories of the mythical creatures begin to take shape in Bijou’s life.
