Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman
Jacob has lived in foster homes his entire life but he had finally found a father in Mr. Fielding. Right before Mr. Fielding died in a car accident he told Jacob "you are indestructable" and his words seem to have come true. Now it seems that Jacob can't be hurt by anything at all. What's more, he has the ability to pass on the power to others which he does by accident, writing it on the cast of a new pretty girl at school. Ophelia and Jacob's best friend Miles work with him to test the limits of the power and eventually start using it to try to save people who might otherwise die. But Jacob senses that Ophelia's interest in the power is going beyond helping others and that something dark might be creeping into their world.
