I ctash that she was so “in love” with Sawyer but I believe a few flashback would’ve really helped me understand where Jules was coming from at every point. One day, you’re walking down the street and the next thing you notice, a billboard shows you a vision of something happening. The end had a sort of cliffhanger to it. Nook, Audiobook unabridgedHardback, iBooks, Kindle.
Completely leaving out her physical description makes it a bit harder for me to connect because Jcmann simply can’t see her and she remains out of focus. The way she speaks, the obsession towards pizza boy, her superficial personality and lack of development, it all adds up quickly and unforgivably. Check out Lisa’s website at LisaMcMann. Jules is a character that falls in the middle of likable and unlikable. She comes across as a real teenager! I really liked Jules, she was very easy to connect to, had no issues with anyone and was overall a very good, quite and “lost in her own world” bt of girl.

Children’s Book Review: Crash by Lisa McMann. Simon Pulse, $ (p) ISBN
The story is told in Bg voice but because of carsh family’s history of mental illness and the visions she is experiencing, the reader is unsure as to how reliable a narrator Jules is.
I enjoyed reading about mmann relationship between Jules and her brother and sister, they’re very close to each other and Trey is probably the most interesting character in the book. The book focused on the angst that is Jules and her complicated relationship with Sawyer. It was difficult to feel a connection with the characters, excluding Jules although she was whiny. Some readers would probably think the ending had a crazy plot twist, but with the writing style, it wasn’t hard to predict situations and the ending even after one sentence.
Refresh and try again.
Crash: Visions, Book 1
This is the book version of a movie where you see all the good parts in the trailer. It repeated about four times before actually happening. Visions series follows the same formula as her Dream Catcher series – which I absolutely loved.
I know I didn’t. With much of the action necessarily happening in Jules’ head, as it centers on something only she can see, the story bogs down and becomes repetitive in midstream as she revisits what she’s seeing and tries to decide what to do about it.
This, however, is just not for me and I won’t be reading the sequel. There’s something infinitely passionate about the Italians – especially when it comes to food and love. His family runs mc,ann a competing Italian restaurant and there is bad blood between the two.
The writing was just too juvenile for YA fiction. As time progresses the vision becomes longer, revealing more and more detail. If it were me, and I had these visions, I wouldn’t know what to do.
She always entertains me from beginning to end. A good series starter. It had twists and turns and was pleasantly entertaining. She sees a snow plow smashing into a building, the building explode, and then seven body bags in the snow.
Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode Other than that, though, this was almost total disappointment. Everyone works in the family restaurant, which they barely managed to keep afloat, partly because her father’s mental illness. But Sawyer is a good guy, he volunteers for the humane society for goodness sakes, and I saw the attraction and why Jules couldn’t stop watching, and loving him from afar.
This plot could have been extremely engaging if it had something to give it life. Fun, interesting and pleasant. Maybe if he had enough personality to even be liked or disliked.
Actually now that I see it written in black and white I am a little surprised at my original enthusiasm. Oct 06, jaroda rated it really liked it. Sorry, but that wasn’t enough to keep me engaged. Jules and Sawyer have been best friends since kindergarden and crxsh after they stopped communicating because of their parents rivalry, Jules never stopped loving Sawyer.
