"I have nothing to look forward to. Eighteen years old and every vision I've ever had, every memory of the future; they've nearly all become real memories now. What you would call the past." Ezekiel, eighteen and clairvoyant, knows the end is coming. He's been expecting it for years. But with mere weeks to go, he may have finally met his savior. Her name is Mona, and she filled his visions long before she walked into his life. The question is why?

This book was in your face from the beginning. I felt the attitude, humiliation (especially Ms. Fiore) all his hatred towards certain people (especially Ms. Fiore) his soft side with Mona. Dealing with his clairvoyance, knowing your time is coming. I really enjoyed it a lot, great book to read. Don't want to say more I might spill the beans. But this book is a must read. Thank you!

Rapid feelings of excitement aroused me as I picked up this book and began reading it. To begin, the black chess piece on the front cover startled me. The symbolism of the black chess piece is astounding. Then, I flip to the back cover … testimonials! I love testimonials, so I was compelled to dig into the inside contents. Whenever I read books, I look for key traits readers want to see. Readers want to be entertained and they want to visualize the story in their minds as they’re reading. This book offers that promise! Throughout the course of this book, I found life lessons any individual could possibly face. The most important one, to me, is to never take life for granted. Chase those who you truly love and be honest to them all the way. Finding suspense within each chapter, my interest heightened. A book that I planned to read in one week was completely read in two days. Ezekiel had a hurtful past and the guilt caused him to misbehave in ways he couldn’t understand. That’s reality! That’s what makes a book good! Through every turmoil (even the closing down of Gallagher’s), Ezekiel somehow found hope to fulfill his American Dream. He plays the pessimistic role at first though. This book invokes more realism through Allison (Lissa) and Eddie. I like how the author explicitly crafts both characters in this book. Lissa takes on a perfectionist, bossy attitude while Eddie takes on a free-loader attitude. Mr. Jepson’s attitude during the third grade dilemma and towards the center of the book was quite shocking to me. The construction of the book was well organized and the author remained on topic from beginning to end. In closing, I recommend this book to those who are dealing with, or know someone, who has seizures and a cantankerous attitude. Counselors that want to learn how to counsel effectively could also benefit from this book. Overall, a good read, a dramatic read, and a book that will cause you to shed a tear here and there. Good insights, full of suspense, a couple of laughs, and great choice of verbiage and vocabulary.
