This week I am waiting on. . . 

(Visions #1)
By: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: January 8, 2013

January 8th can not come fast enough for me! I am such a fan of Lisa McMann's YA writing. Her Wake series is one of my all time favorites, and I also loved Dead to You and Cryer's Cross. At this point, I am thrilled to read whatever she writes about, so I was so excited that she has a new four book series coming out! Her style has always been so clean, even perhaps sparse, that I find myself able to vividly fill in the gaps for myself and her worlds are often the most 'real' to me of any I read. 

The synopsis for Crash is slightly reminiscent of Wake, without being the same, so I am really very excited for this particular book to come out! 

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.
