Have you ever had a dream that came to life? How about losing the one you love and not being able to save them? What about a gift that you were cursed with? Well image having all three like Sicily "Sissy" Monroe.
"Some might say what I have is a gift. I say, I want to return it." Sissy declares.
Sicily "Sissy" Monroe has all the qualities of a perfect young lady. She is almost where she wants to be in life. But lying deep in the pupil of her eyes hold something that she cannot get rid of which interferes with her plans. She fights everyday with no one but herself. After having her first vision at age six of her sister's (Misty) disappearance and the dreams of failing to save her, Sissy wants no part in another person's fate. For years Sissy tried hard to avoid contact with people because she feared foreseeing their death. In keeping with this, she tries to stay away from her family. Little did Sissy know she could not run from her past, or her gift. She hopes someone will put her out of her misery, but she will soon discover that her visions and dreams were just a mere image of herself.
This read was quite eerie. I couldn’t imagine seeing the way someone would die, family members, random strangers, but that is just what Sicily has to deal with. Ever since her sister Misty drowned she has visions, she believes it to be her sister trying to communicate with her, when the truth is revealed it turns out to be something else entirely.
There are plenty of twists and turns and just when you think you have it figured out, everything turns upside down. The only issue I really had with the book was the way it was written, it just didn’t flow to me but that is only a small issue that I had with it over all which is good. I have to say the ending to this read it was just strange...and very unexpected, I don’t really know how to feel about it. I think the best way to describe the ending is mind blowing.
I wasn’t sure how to rate this one, it was one of the more original things I have read but I did have a couple of little issues with it but nothing major. I will give this one three and a half stars.
