Audience: Older Teens

From Goodreads:
After narrowly surviving two harrowing tragedies, Jules now fully understands the importance of the visions that she and people around her are experiencing. She’s convinced that if the visions passed from her to Sawyer after she saved him, then they must now have passed from Sawyer to one of the people he saved.

That means it’s up to Jules to figure out which of the school shooting survivors is now suffering from visions of another crisis. And once she realizes who it is, she has to convince that survivor that this isn't all crazy—that the images are of something real. Something imminent.

As the danger escalates more than ever before in the conclusion to the Visions series, Jules wonders if she'll finally find out why and how this is happening—before it's too late to prevent disaster.


I think teens would absolutely love this book.

However, I’m a grown up now.

I liked it, don’t get me wrong, I just found myself thinking, “Yeah right” over and over. How can so much disaster surround one group of people? And really, you have no experience in rescue situations and you’re going to fix that kind of an accident on your own?! I’ve seen too many news stories that feature teens who tried to be heroes and ended up being victims, too. The story just didn’t sit right with me. It was a great way to end the series and it tied up all of the loose ends. It was well-written, it just wasn’t for me.
