My Review:
Visions, dreams of future events, four good friends, romance, suspense and twist/turns of a thriller. What a ride!!!

Garcia’s writing is incredible!! You are grabbed right from the first page and taken for a thrill of a rollercoaster ride!! The characters are endearing, frustrating and some are plain evil. Hannah and Rory start off as best friends, crushing on each other. As the story progresses they grow up and begin to realize their feelings are becoming more than a crush. I loved watching their relationship blossom. But also the group of four friends become more like family to each other. So much happens, but they stick together and look out for each other. The paranormal/suspense/thriller aspect of it has you on the edge of your seat at times, turning the pages to find out what is going to happen!!

Don’t miss this thrilling, suspenseful, paranormal, romantic, coming of age story!! It is a wonderful genre bender!!
