Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior, cursed with an eerie intuitive ability: she sees a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters. Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money, Maddie identifies the quickly approaching death date of one client’s young son. When the boy goes missing on that exact date, law enforcement turns to Maddie. A suspect for the investigation, a target for the murderer, and attracting the attentions of a mysterious young admirer who may be connected to it all, Maddie’s whole existence is about to be turned upside down.
So I’m pretty sure I’ve read this book before. About halfway through I started thinking ‘I know this part!’. This book was pretty great! I love this idea. I’m not sure what it is but I’m seriously obsessed with death and the idea of death. Anything that is about someone seeing death, seeing death dates, being a Reaper makes me happy inside.
I really liked the main character in this book. As someone who struggled dealing with the shortcomings of a mother, I could really relate to her. I could relate to someone who wanted to be strong, believes that people could change, and yet know their innocence had been taken a long time ago.
I would recommend this YA book! I enjoyed it! I also really liked the way this ended.
