Madison Sabatini had a plan for her future, then it is crushed suddenly by one conversation. Madison is stuck in the strange, sleepy beach town of Sandyland, after her parents become bankrupt and they have to sell their house. Instead of spending the summer with her friends at home, she's hanging out with pink-haired Delilah, an artist who works in a shop called Psychic Photo, and a skater boy named Duncan who's totally not her type. Except, maybe he is.
She throws herself into her true passion: photography. Suddenly bizarre figures start appearing in her pictures, people that for sure weren't there to begin with. The strange thing is that these people are later reported dead. With the help of Delilah and Duncan, she finds out the real truth of what is happening.
Snap was a really different book. It started off slow as all mysteries do, but quickly gained momentum. Madison was like any angst-ridden teen. It wasn't like she didn't have a reason to be like that. If I was surprised like that I would love it. Delilah was an interesting character. I loved her artsy and funky personality. I really wanted to be friends with her. Duncan was also sweet and cute. I though that Snap would be a bit scarier, but I was surprised. It was a fairly original book. Carol Snow is an amazing writer and I will have to check out Switch. I recommend this book, if you are looking for a quick and interesting mystery.


  1. You've made me SO curious! I'm especially glad to know it's original. It's getting harder and harder to be original these days. With YA books sometimes certain things sound predictable which I hate. I love original. :D
