Gripping, exhilarating, and a real page-turner, Crash will leave you wanting more. Jules, an ordinary seventeen-year-old girl, lives a fairly normal life until the visions take over. On every billboard, magazine, and TV screen she passes by, she glimpses an explosion and nine body bags in the snow. Her only problem is that she’s the only one who can see them. But it’s not until the vision reveals a victim, someone she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember, that she takes notice. Will Jules be able to save Sawyer, the one person who matters to her the most?
When the first chapter of the book that you’re reading leaves you wanting more, you know it’s going to be good. McMann does an excellent job of entertaining the reader from beginning to end. She leaves you breathless and enraptured by the connection that Jules and Sawyer have, from the little looks between classes to the secret rendezvous at night. And what makes it even more exciting is that they are part of something bigger, a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. Jules’s visions test the limits of their relationship to each other and to their families. Jules is part of Sawyer’s life, whether as a romantic partner or a guardian angel. Crash definitely left me on my toes, and I’m looking forward to the next work in the trilogy.
