Final Destination meets Romeo and Juliet in Lisa Mcmann's Crash, but fails to rival either story.
The book opens with Jules having a vision of her crush, Sawyer Angotti, getting killed in a restaurant explosion. Then, she has it again. And again. And again....
The first half dragged with her unable to tell Sawyer or even admitting to herself that what she was seeing, was real. Partly because of the mental illness history in her family, and partly because she likes him. No girl wants to look foolish in front of mister right. I get that.
But half into the book, we were still being fed the same dialogue. And to make matters worse, Mcmann's uses incomprehensible swear words, limiting the love story to a PG10 rating.
Hopefully, the sequel will provide us with a bigger climax.
