Summary from Harper Collins
She sees through the eyes of a killer…

Vee Bell hates having narcolepsy. But collapsing at school is nowhere near as bad as the truth. When Vee passes out she slides randomly into other’s people’s heads and ends up seeing through their eyes. So when Vee finds herself in the head of a killer, standing over the body of a cheerleader, she’s beyond freaked.

Vee knows that this was no suicide. And when another cheerleader turns up dead, everyone is a suspect. Struggling to understand her terrifying and unwanted ‘gift’, Vee is tangled in a web of secrets, lies and danger…

Nayuleska's thoughtsOne point in the book freaked me out so bad I put the book down intending not to read it again. I'm glad I changed my mind. The plot twists are spectacular, and I was in tears at the end. This 10/10 read is a book you must read.

Heard mixed reviews for this one. So a little nervous about picking it up.
