Rating: 3.5 StarsAmazon - Goodreads - Shelfari
Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that.
What she can’t handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode...and nine body bags in the snow.
The vision is everywhere—on billboards, television screens, windows—and she’s the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more shesees. The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it’s someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember.
In this riveting start to a gripping series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality.
I really liked how Julia progressed through the story. How she went from denial to acceptance then finally taking charge of the visions. How she started standing up for herself and how she did what had to be done and didn't care what anyone else thought about her. I even got teary-eyed at one point.
I liked Sawyer after that one conversation he had with Kate, then I understood where his attitude was coming from, cause at first I thought it had been pretty weak of him to let his parents dictate his friendship with Julia after middle school.
I thought the aspect of the visions was really well done. I liked how they kept changing when she made a decisions. I would however like to know more about where they come from, why now and why Julia? Pretty sure it ties in with her grandfather somehow.
What really bothered me were their parents, or more specifically both their fathers. They are both such asses! I get it was a betrayal and what not but I mean seriously, taking it out on both Sawyer and Julia. Don't even get me started on Sawyer's grandfather...
I really liked the relationships between the siblings, it reminded me of myself and my brothers xD
All in all it was a pretty good read and should be interesting who are affected by the next vision.
