+First-person YA novel told from the point of Alison, an 18-year-old girl who experiences extreme synesthesia.
+After she things she disintegrated her friend, she gets sent to a mental health institution.
+
+One of the supervisors at the institution (Faraday) takes a particular interest in her and her extra-sensory capabilities, and it's eventually revealed that he's actually a traveller from an alien world.
+She travels to his home (briefly), discovers the friend she thought she'd murdered is actually alive, returns home and is released from the institution.
+
+Much of the book is spent on her interactions with people inside the institution -- the doctor she thinks doesn't care, the friends she tries to push away, the mother who's scared.
+Standard YA fare.
+
+I enjoyed it and read it quickly, but I'm struggling to articulate why.
