"[A] medical student who is anything but ordinary...
Kyla has a strange gift: she can hear skin songs. To her, a person's skin has a song and each person sounds differently. On arriving at med school she finds herself in a quandary: does the skin song continue after death?
Mixing mystery in with sheer humanity and splendid characterization, Yuan-Innes's story is a delight."
