When Lissy James moves from California to Oklahoma, she finds herself in the middle of a teenage nightmare: a social scene to rival a Hollywood movie. And as if understanding the hierarchy of the Goldens vs. the Nons isn't hard enough, Lissy's ever-growing Aura Vision is getting harder and harder to hide. If she's not careful, she's going to become a Non faster than you can say "freak."But it's becoming clear that Emory High has a few secrets of its own. Around the halls, the term "special powers" goes way beyond one's ability to attract the opposite sex, and there may be something more evil than the A-crowd lurking in the classrooms. Lissy can see a lot more than the average girl, but she's about to learn the hard way that things aren't always as they appear and you can't always judge a girl by her lip gloss.… (mer)

I really liked the way Golden ended, tying up loose ends but also leaving enough questions to make me want to read the sequel, Platinum. Golden is about Lissy, a girl from California, who is moving to Oklahoma. Each female member of Lissy's family has some form of "sight." In Lissy's case, she sees auras. Her life in her new high school is complicated by the "Goldens" who are the popular kids that bully all the "Nons," everyone else in school. Lissy isn't sure if she wants to be a "Golden" or a "Non" because the "Nons" she meets seem much easier to get along with and more down to earth. Her natural clumsiness; however, makes her seem destined to be a "Non." The mystery begins when Lissy promptly throws up and passes out the first time she sees her new math teacher. Even though everyone tells her how wonderful he is, his aura tells Lissy something completely different.
The one problem I had with this story, was that as much as Lissy wanted to appear "normal" to others, she seemed to spend an awful lot of her time obsessing over the auras she saw surrounding everyone around her. Otherwise, I enjoyed Lissy's attempts to navigate the overdeveloped social scene of her new high school and her struggle to figure out the mystery of Mr. Kissler. ( )

This book started off slow and a bit juvenile but as it went on, I found that I was starting to like Lissy and really liked all her snarkiness. I thought she was hilarious. Then about halfway there was suddenly a story and a mystery to solve and I was really enjoying it. I read that Jennifer Lynn Barnes wrote this book when she was 19 and, if that's the case, that would definitely explain some of the juvenile-ishness (like my word there) of the book. One of the best parts of the story was that, although there was a romance, there wasn't really. It was more the promise of a romance to come and I like that. I wanted more from the characters and I'm a little sad to see that the second book switches over to Lilah's point of view. Maybe there'll be more about Lissy and Dylan in it ;)

About the audiobook: The narrator, Jenna Lamia is wonderful. I've listened to her in other audiobooks and she does a terrific job. One thing that threw me off was this story had a lot of music thrown into the production and every time I thought it was my cell phone going off and started looking for my phone before I realized it was the audiobook.

Overall, this is a fun, light listen. ( )
