Crash by Lisa McMann

Source: Publisher
If what you see is what you get, Jules is in serious trouble. The suspenseful first of four books from the New York Timesbestselling 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 shesees. 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 bestselling author Lisa McMann, Jules has to act—and act fast—to keep her vision from becoming reality.

Jules is a strong and funny character. A lot of the things that she thought or said made me laugh. As the visions become more detailed as the story went on, and I realized what Jules was experiencing. I also enjoyed that she was brave. Trey was a funny brother and his protective nature is something similar to what I experience with my brother. Rowan was a cute little sister and I liked that there was relationship between all of the siblings. Sawyer was really sweet and I liked that he didn't believe everything that Jules said. I also liked that their was a history between them. The plot of Crash was fast paced and exciting.  I just felt that the whole family feud thing was over the top. The vision of billboards, TVs, and ect was an interesting concept.  McMann's writing was good, but I feel that there are a lot of question that are left open that I wish I knew about. Overall, if you want a quick contemporary with a supernatural twist or enjoyed McMann's other books, I would recommend this book.
