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.

IT'S AN EYE!!!! lol... Okay, so while the concepts of seeing horrifying visions isn't all that new (Final Destination, anyone?), I still think the concept is interesting. What would you do if you know something terrible was about to happen, and there was nothing you could do about it? And what if somebody you knew and loved was involved? Would you still do everything you could to change that vision? Or would you let it happen...?

These are all things that interest me. This book is only 233 pages, so it will be a nice quick read, but one that I still will be quite interesting.

What are you waiting on? What book has caught your eye and now you absolutely cannot wait to get your hands on it?

Haha, I just read this first sentence:
"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"
then went on to Goodreads to mark this book as To Be Read and then read the end of the synopsis - this sounds soooo amazing! Thanks for sharing!
