When by Victoria Laurie
I read this intense YA paranormal psychological thriller/murder mystery novel today. It was a quick read with plot twists that kept me guessing who the murderer was. Sixteen year old Maddie has always seen the numbers on people's foreheads, which, after her father died, they realized were death dates. Only knowing when someone will die, but not how or why makes Maddie believe there is nothing she can do to change anyone's death date. Her mother, who became an alcoholic after her father died, has made Maddie go into business as a sort of psychic reader telling people their death dates for money to support her mom's alcohol habbit. The story is dark and chilling and I think that YA readers will enjoy it. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
