Better late than never ;D

by Kimberly Derting

The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)

Title: The Body Finder
Author: Kimberly Derting
Publication Date: March 16th 2010
When I Read It: March 2011
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

Recommended if: You love a good YA with no love triangles, or you just need something good to read.
Ages: 12+
My Review:
Why It's Book of the Week: Because it's awesome, and so readable! Also, I need a place to gush about it, and this seemed appropriate ;P
