If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first of three books from the New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy.

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 she sees. 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 trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality. 

My Review

I won this book back at the beginning of 2014 from the 31 Days of Reading giveaway. It was an amazing giveaway and I'm still getting through all the books I got from them! So I finally picked up this one (I'm trying really hard to read books that I already own before getting new ones). 

This was a pretty interesting book that kind of reminded me of the Final Destination movies. Did anyone else who read that get that feeling? Jules sees a vision of a terrible accident that kills 9 people. First she just sees it a few times, here and there. Then she starts seeing it everywhere she looks: on the tv, on stop signs, on store windows. It just won't go away. So she starts trying to figure out what's going to happen and when. She even confides in her brother and the person she's in love with. They're not quite sure what to believe, but one of them does believe her right away. 

This book takes us on a chase of trying to figure out what is going to happen and when. This book is pretty interesting! Like I said, it reminds me of the Final Destination movies as Jules tries to figure out whats going to happen and when. I really kind of liked it. I wasn't quite expecting that when I first picked it up. And then the end throws you for a curve ball a bit, so it makes me want to pick up the next one as well. 

And last thought - that cover is awesome, isn't it?! It's just so unique!
