If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first of four 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 series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality.

Crash by Lisa Mcmann was amazing. Everything about the whole book was totally mind blowing, from seeing visions on windows to the shocking ending. I chose this book to read because it reminded me of another story I read called Pivot Point by Kasie West (Which was also amazing) both books had girls with the ability to see visions but in reality they were totally different in plots and storylines. While I’ve read plenty of books dealing with people who could see the future, I’d say Lisa Mcmann came up with the most creative idea of seeing the unfortunate events by having them play out on windows, TVs, and even street signs! In the end I’d say this is the best book I’ve read this school year so far and cannot wait until the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery and adventurous novel. I rate this five stars.
