If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first in a series from the New York Times best-selling 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 best-selling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act – and act fast – to keep her vision from becoming reality.
Crash, the simplest way to put it, Romeo and Juliet with an unexpected twist. Although instead of Montegeo and Capulets we have the Demarco’s and Angotti’s.
There families are sworn enemies and your left puzzled as to why until the very end. Jules likes Sawyer but doesn’t know the feeling is reciprocated even though every one else seems to get it. The family feud has already destroyed the friendship they once have. Your left with a lot of questions that get rounded off in the end only to be left with a cliffhanger and more wonderment.
Jules out of nowhere starts to see visions of a crash (hence the name) and as the day of the big event draw near they become more frequent.
I thought the plot while interesting and unorthodox played out well. The only part that annoyed me was Jules personality. I think it annoyed me because it seemed to match my snarky remarks very well even when carrying on a conversation with myself.
The characters are likeable, well the ones we are supposed to like anyways. My only downfall was how everything concluded. I felt like I was getting a bundle package deal. It was laid out pretty bluntly and the made the ending feel chopped up a bit.
