Genre: Young Adult
I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
The premise of this book was interesting and the story was easy to read with its simplistic writing style. Readers of any age will be able to get through it quickly.
The plot had an interesting concept with Matt seeing bad things before they happen but having no control or ability to change the outcome. I did find that the story dragged in places and some key parts to the story were skimmed over. Matt's self loathing did get on my nerves after a while and I wanted to reach into the pages and give him a shake. I understand that he had a rough life and that seeing things that you don't want to can be overwhelming but he spent way too much time thinking negatively.
The story between Matt and Amara was a little under developed in my opinion as well. It would have been nice to read more about their developing relationship and connection. I feel it would have been a much more realistic story if more time was spent on it.
Over all it was a cute story that I think young readers will enjoy.
