Summary from Goodreads:
Witness protection has a protocol for dealing with every situation—except magic.
Fifteen-year-old Cate’s life has been monitored since her new identity was created five years ago. She’s spent countless hours learning how to deal with potential threats and dangerous situations. None of which is any use when everyone around her is suddenly frozen like statues at the bus stop.
As Cate attempts to make sense of the frightening scene, a mysterious group of teenagers appear out of thin air. They are intrigued she’s not affected, but focus on completing their deadly mission, using baffling powers before they vanish again.
When the group seeks her out the next day, Cate is drawn into a world filled with sorcery and time travel. After she accidentally brings a cheerleader back from the dead, her incredible powers are revealed. Cate is shocked to discover she has a pivotal role to play in a centuries-old battle between two mortal enemies which threatens to destroy her entire world.
With the distinction between good and evil blurred, she’s faced with the excruciating choice of which side to join. Cate can save her family or protect thousands of people from death. She can’t do both. Will she risk destroying innocent lives to save the ones she loves?

Jonah tore at his hair. “You and your stubborn ways teach me patience like no one else. For the record, I’m dead against this. I’m only doing it because I know how pigheaded you are.”
“Don’t let go of my arm.” He grabbed hold of her elbows. “And don’t you dare come back and haunt me if you die. It’s your own foolish fault.”
“Completely my fault! I promise not to haunt you.”
The corners of his mouth twitched as he suppressed a smile. “Hold on extremely tight. In the interests of full disclosure, you could end up in some random time line or alternate dimension. Both of which are immensely hard to come back from. You should know that if you end up dead or lost, Mortez will feed me to the fire ants, and I will certainly come back and haunt you mercilessly. I’ll stalk you relentlessly if we’re both dead.”
“Understood.” She gripped his elbow with one hand and then decided to use two. There was no doubt she was doing this, even with the annoying voice in her head chanting that she would regret it.
“It’s not too late to accept this won’t work. It’s going to hurt. Immensely.” Sweat beaded along Jonah’s upper lip.
