BOOK SYNOPSIS: Ever since she was child, Jem has kept a secret: Whenever she meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. The two plan a trip to the city. But while waiting to ride the Eye ferris wheel, Jem is terrified to see that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today's number. Today's date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem’s world is about to explode!

  2. 525 because it's my birthday. Plus, it looks neat and contained because of the square root relationship.

  5. 8 because I love to write it down. The curves are fun to do.

  6. My favorite number is 33. Partially for the repetition, and because 3 is such a good number. But largely because I've won several guessing game type contests with it.

  7. I like 11 because it is my birthday and because it does cool things when you multiply it by a two digit number.

  8. I've always loved the number 3 which is odd because I typically like even numbers.

  11. 2 is my favorite number but I'm going to admit to not having very good reasons why. Maybe because it is even or because it was alway the number I used in softball.

  14. Oh dear, do I have to pick one?

    I'll go with 5-8

    5 because there's two on each side
    6 because its double of three
    7 because there's three on each side. You could almost make it into a pyramid.
    8 just because

    8 is probably my favorite.

  19. I'd have to say 13 is my favorite number . . . I was born on the 13th, so it's always a number I play on lottery, etc.

  21. (Blogger got upset with my comment. Trying again.)

    I decided at an early age that 13 was my favorite number so it wouldn't feel left out, then I came (unofficially) 13th in my finals at college.

  27. Hmmm...In general 3 is my favorite number (don't know why), but I have a thing about numbers that almost borders on OCD. Over the holidays I had to quick find another cookie reciepe simply because I had only made 14 kinds. Now 14 is a nice number on it's own being an even number, but when you can have one more and make 15? 15 beats 14 because it's a "5" number. Numbers (and their even/oddness) has even factured in to how many earing I have. And now that I sound crazy, I'll go, but this buuok sounds like a good read. I look forward to it! Thanks!

  39. 127. It's a weird number that seems to follow me.

  40. 9. Because it's such a clean number.

    09 = 0+9 = 9
    18 = 1+8 = 9
    27 = 2+7 = 9
    ...
    99 = 9+9 = 18 = 1+8 = 9
    108 = 1+0+8 = 9

    Nine is such a dependable number in basic math. It'll always, somehow, revert back to nine and it'll never disappoint you.

  43. My lucky number is 17 but I have never truly been sure why. I would guess because seventeen was the age where I learned some of the harder lessons life had to offer.

  59. My favorite number is 3, because when I was young in school, this club I was in was playing a game, and whoever guessed the right number got to go first, and everyone went and no one guessed it, so I tried and I guessed right with 3. It's been 3 ever since! True story! :)

    Thanks so much!
