The strong and intelligent kids are Wanted and they get to go to university.
The creative and artistic kids are Unwanted and they are sent to their
deaths. Follow 13-year-old twins Aaron and Alex as they are forced down
As of right now, there will be 7 books in The Unwanteds series:

For older readers, I've also written the WAKE trilogy, about a
seventeen-year-old girl named Janie who gets sucked into other people's
dreams. I have two stand-alone young adult thrillers, CRYER'S CROSS and DEAD
Also, GASP, the final book in the VISIONS series,is now available. It follows CRASH (Book 1) and BANG (Book 2). Fans of WAKE will enjoy this trilogy!
I grew up in Michigan and now I live in Arizona with my husband, two
children, and three cats.

Short, sweet, and to the point: the book fits in well with the rest of McMann's discography. I loved it while I was reading it and was unable to put it down, but it's not a book I'm going to come back to for a reread.
And you know what? That's okay. Because the suspense, which is the best part of the book, would be ruined by me knowing what already happened. And boy, does this book have suspense.
I liked the characters well enough, even though Jules' obsession with Sawyer made me groan about ninety percent of the time. (I got past it because the suspense kept me going, but really? You've been in love with him for how long? I know you're doing that thing teenage girls and guys do where they love from afar, but... oi vey!) And I liked the dichotomy of the old Italian rivals, because it was super over dramatic -- just like in real life.
All in all, it was a really entertaining book; I'd definitely recommend picking it up if you need something to distract you and suck you in for a few hours.
The story is a very basic one. Girl has a premonition that the boy she likes is going to die. She spends the whole book trying to warn him and thence prevent prevent the premonition from becoming reality. I think this would have made a good short story for young readers. But the book basically has the main character, Jules, constantly replaying her premonition of a vehicle accident, followed by an explosion, over and over and yes... over again. That's seventy-five percent of the book. Throw in at least a little character development surrounding Jules and her family, and Jules's love interest Sawyer, and then the main "event" at the end of the book and you have the whole story in a nutshell.
I'm not giving the book one star because I didn't dislike the book. And, to be fair, a pre-teen might like the story. But I really can't imagine the story being developed enough to appeal to anyone over the age of 12. I remember reading books when I was 13 that I could not easily fit into the school's book report format of "write a paragraph describing the book's plot." This book *would* fit in that simple format. But that's just my opinion.
Really, the book was that good. I couldn't put it down. Of course I quickly finished (I'm a fast reader, my friends complain about it) and then got upset because the next one isn't out yet. When I was reading McMann's Wake series, what I was thrilled about was I read the first two the weekend before the third one came out so I had no real waiting for the series. This is different; the second book doesn't come out until October. Although that's only 10 months and not a year. I understand it could be worse.
Crash is the story of Jules, snarky, sarcastic, bitter Jules whose voice often seems like my own. Jules does not have an easy life. First of all, she is a teenager who has to drive a truck with giant balls on the top of it. They're meatballs, but still, they are balls. Jules does appreciate the good puns that come out of having to drive the truck. Second, her father has...his problems. He is a hoarder. He's a neat hoarder, but he still hoards. McMann is not new to writing conditions such as hoarding, with a previous book of her featuring OCD. Jules' mother and father own the family business, an Italian eatery (hence the balls) and the hoarding affects the family business. Jules, however, deals with it. She isn't on her own, she has a younger quirky sister and an awesome older brother. Her older brother, by the way, is gay.Read more ›
